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.

degbert (1645) - Austin, Texas, USA - MAY 14, 2016
Bottle. Pours an opaque brown-black with a medium, fine-grained, creamy, light brown head. Nose is baking chocolate, black tea, salinity, coffee, and nutmeg. Dark and roasty up front, with coffee predominant; on the mid-palate is where the briny notes kick in, with a rich umami element. Surprisingly unctuous. There’s definitely oysters in here; kind of Captain Obvious, but I’ve had oyster stouts where you couldn’t tell. Finish is long, a little warm, and salty-dry. Good.

DiarmaidBHK (4152) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 5, 2016
Draft at Row 34. Pours black with a thin khaki head. Leaves a fair amount of lacing in the glass. Solid roasted malt notes on the nose. Nice hop notes on the tongue. If this were served on nitro perhaps more of the oyster presence could be felt. Still it's a pretty good stout. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

martin00sr (2490) - Haderslev, DENMARK - APR 1, 2016
UPDATED: APR 1, 2016 Tap @Open Baladin, Roma. Black with thick beige head. Mild roasted aroma, notes of chocolate. Sea water, fishy and chocolate flavour. Sounds like a bad idea for a combo, and it is... ends dry, but then again it doesn?t end, the brine and fish just keep on giving....
