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.

Draft. Black with little khaki head. Aroma is chocolate with a faint hint of banana. Taste adds a hint of earthiness from the oyster. Exceptionally smooth. Very pleasant. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Birra del Borgo Perle ai Porce is an unusual tasting stout. Light chocolate aroma coming from a dark pour. Head is tight but thin and dissipates quickly. Some chocolate flavors but then comes an off mix of sour and salt. Kind of strange for a stout but not terrible either. Perle is not bad but not my favorite stout. UPDATE: Just translated the Italian description. Apparently, Perle ai Porce is brewed with actual oysters which explains the off flavors. Kind of a novelty if you are into it, but I don’t think it works.

Loved it. Had doubts about the oyster shells being used in the brew but it was the best
