Why settle for the ordinary dark beers? Why not pursue my wildest dreams? My cravings had to be satisfied sooner or later….then I found her. She was much more than I expected much better than what I already had. Smooth, hypnotic and sensual, its charm was cloaked in a cloud of smoke. How could I not fall for her?

Smoked Porter is the evolution of Oatmeal Stout. This beer goes beyond the wildest dreams of the dark beer enthusiasts. It was a hard call leaving behind the great Oatmeal Stout but the very first sip of Smoked Porter proved I would not regret my choice. This beer tells entertaining stories that only take place in one’s imagination transporting us in worlds forgotten by the memory and experienced solely during our dreams. Recalling Central America’s cacao beans, its delicate roasts combine with aromas of wood coals and turf laid on a smooth bed of milk cream. Just like her other “sisters” it won’t strike you at the first sip, it would rather grow on you carefully with its sincerity and deliciousness. She is the perfect companion for raw salmon and shellfish. It is great on its own in solitude. When I am by myself, she keeps me company helping me to look deeper and understand things. Night is not only darkness, there is still a lot to be seen beyond our eyes.

Diabobale (455) - Vallata, SUD ITALIA, ITALY - NOV 8, 2014
Un’ottima porter di color ebano scuro con schiuma cremosa e color avorio, abbondante e persistente. Al naso è un’esplosione di odori, tutti di affumicato, dalla brace di legna al tabacco, con un prevalente sentore di Castagna del prete (per chi non la conoscesse, è una castagna reidratata dopo essere stata fatta essiccare su graticci di legno, per due settimane, sotto cui vi sono bracieri di legno di castagno accessi h24). Gusto morbido e vellutato, impreziosito da un lieve amaro dato dal luppolo (forse amarillo).

Silvan7 (1105) - Samarate, ITALY - APR 29, 2014
Bottle @ Il barbaresco Gallarate. Marrone scura impenetrabile, schiuma beige fine e poco persistente.Aroma legnoso, affumicato, quasi di cenere. Sono inoltre avvertibili cacao amaro liquirizia e tostatura. Gusto complesso, meno intenso di quanto ci si aspetterebbe. Dolce abboccato all’ingresso con cacao e frutta secca, poi amaro da tostatura e un gusto ben bilanciato di affumicatura. Poco corposa, poco calda, decisamente astringente. Non molto carbonata. Equilibrata ed abbastanza armonica.

Ammiro chi prova ad accostare una buona affumicatura ai malti tostati di una stout o di una porter. In realtà qui il risultato non è straordinario, ma ho apprezzato il forte sentore affumicato, sia nell’aroma che nel gusto, che predomina sulla note caffettose e tostate più propriamente da porter. Per andare in un posto che nessuno ha mai trovato, d’altronde bisogna perdersi.

danielecamo (839) - ITALY - DEC 18, 2013
In bottiglia 33cl.Colore nero con un leggero riflesso rubino, poca schiuma con poca persistenza. Aroma di tostato, affumicato, legno secco. Al palato però risulta essere troppo sbilanciata sullìaffumicato, sul legnoso e questo compromette la bevuta. La parte maltata passa troppo in secondo piano.

Dorqui (2196) - Brescia, ITALY - AUG 15, 2013
Bottled 0,33L. Dark mahogany color, creamy nut head of discreet duration. Intense smoked and braced woody aroma, notes of ash, earthly, roast malty. Intense and discreet smooth taste, round alcoholic mouth, no crisp perception, very mellow with a solid roast wood and toasted malty final. Enduring bitter end.
