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.

Amo alla follia questa birra! Naso fantastico ostriche molto salmastro, cosi anche il sapore indubbiamente tante ostriche e sapore di mare, le telline non si notano molto e poi cmq rimane anche il caratteristico sapore di stout! Davvero fantastica questa birra!

On tap at Beer de Luxe. Nice hoppy notes. Aromas of caramel, chocolate, and liquorice. Taste is sweet and bitter, with salty notes, and long length. Palate is velvety, and medium bodied. Black, with an off-white head.

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

Draft at the Birch, I think I was the first (thanks, Ben). Midnight red-black with a thin top, pockmarked with watery foamy bubbles. The beer has a whipped coffee character up front, super dry, cloying even. But then you get that salt-lick-kick in the finish. No, I made sure it wasn’t the nuts. Interesting, good stuff.

Draught @ open baladin Roma. solid black appearance, minimal white head quick to disappear. not very strong salty and roasty aroma. On the palate comes the masterpiece: AMAZING salty, oyster, sand taste perfectly balanced with the character of a good regular porter. You can image to eat some fish drinking it. Quite roasted. The body is medium with a soft/average carbonation. light bitterness and medium sweetness. this beer is so incredible enjoyable. Stunning stuff, perfectly in style I bet it’s very difficult to find an’other REAL oyster stout like this nowadays

UPDATED: APR 15, 2013 Bottle. Schiuma poco alta, fine ed aderente, bel colore marrone scuro aroma piacevole di malti tostati, nota salmastra, accenno di cioccolata , al palato si presenta con un corpo da medio a breve ma molto vellutata e piacevole, media carbonazione, nota importante di malti tostati, sale iodato, cioccolato amaro e finale secco e leggermente amaro che la rende una buona Oyster Stout , beverina , spero di poterla assaggiare ancora.

Pours thick and black with a thick tan head. The nose is roasted coffee, toasted nuts, salt. Not heavy in the nose. Taste is well balanced medium sweet and bitter. The texture is creamy and smooth. The body is heavy and the finish is long. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
