COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Oyster Stout
Si chiama Perle ai Porci ed è una Stout realizzata con l’impiego di ostriche. Avete capito bene, proprio ostriche, utilizzate in grande quantità per regalare alla birra aromi e profumi davvero unici. Per quanto possa sembrare stravagante, l’uso di ostriche nell’arte brassicola è una soluzione ben conosciuta, che in passato ha dato vita a un sottostile preciso: quello delle Oyster Stout. La nostra Perle ai Porci si ispira proprio alla ricetta classica: abbiamo aggiunto la bellezza di 15 kg di ostriche su un totale di 500 litri di mosto. Ostriche buonissime, tra l’altro: Fin de Claire N2, arrivate a Borgorose direttamente dalle coste della Bretagna.

yngwie (13214) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAY 14, 2014
Bottle, 33cl. A really dark brown beer, next to black, and topped by a small, dark beige head. The aroma has lots of lovely chocolate, with some coffee, dark dried fruits and a hint of cocoa. It’s full-bodied and soft on the palate, nicely carbonated, and with chocolate, roasted malts, toast and a little cocoa hint in the flavor. Not much hoppy bitterness going on. Lasting chocolate and cocoa finish with a tar hint. A faint metallic touct too. In a way, nothing extraordinary going on here, but it’s a damn tasteful and plesant stout anyway. 140514

Ferris (3081) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 26, 2014
Draft - Dark fruit and a odd sweetness. Jet black with almost no head. Dark malts, anise and some odd flavours. Maybe the oyster? Not sure about this one.

At world of beer with Taylor and Shawn with our bartender. Pours black with a very small circle of grey head. Aroma, is funky mashed cherries, light malty musk. Taste is cherry big neutral roasted malt notes; flavorful water in an interesting medium to full bodied balanced/fruity/dark fruits kinda way. It’s interesting, but I would never pay $14 for 11.1 fluid oz again.

UPDATED: MAY 13, 2014 Right! I had this in Melbourne, perhaps the last bottle of Perle ai Porci surviving in Australia. First of all, just do not expect to get any hint of the sea briny, no oysters or wedge shells (telline) on sight...I mean, on taste. But it is an awfully nice stout. Lovely aroma of olives, not leathery pungent as in North American stouts, but fruity and crisp. Some raspberry there mingled with those olives too. So, the beer is dark brown, with a beige head that dissipates in the blink of an eye. Rather well-carbonated, from the looks of it. Flavours of roasted malts, not too roasted, but full of dark chocolates and some berries. There’s a good dose of vegemite for the saltiness, and the palate is tremendously oily. Great stout, I could have a lot more than those 650 ml. One of the raters below says it tastes like cum. Well, I’m afraid I cannot comment on that...but if cum indeed tastes like this beer, I’ll be prepared to review my sexual persuasion! :D

Pours inky black with a thin tan head. Nice touch of brine complimenting chocolate, dark fruit and licorice.

Bottle @ døe smagning. Dark brown, small tan head, nice lacing. Aroma, roasted malts, malty, caramel, chocolate, dark fruits. Taste, roasted malts, dry liquorice, bitter dark chocolate, salty, . Tannis in the after. Agreed with a friend that it tasted like cum is described.

TommyFi (83) - ITALY - MAR 11, 2014
Di uno scuro intenso con una schiuma cremosa e fine color nocciola. Al naso odora di polvere di cacao, caffè, liquirizia, legno bruciato e caramello. Corpo medio e carbonatazione perfetta. Nota salata che si avverte sui lati della lingua.
