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.

tia (849) - Sandston, Virginia, USA - JUN 13, 2013
Tap @ Secco. Very dark with thin mocha head and light lacing. Smells earthy, chocolaty, and smoky with a hint at metallic. I am influenced by the server who said briny, I agree. Also chocolaty and a hint roasty. Big but still clean and dry.
