COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Porter aromatised with tobacco.

Il fascino del tabacco Kentucky Toscano.

La birra di partenza la Re Porter a cui vengono aggiunte foglie di tabacco Kentucky Toscano, quello utilizzato per i celebri sigari azionali. Il risultato una birra scurissima, nera, impenetrabile, con un naso molto ricco, che offre sensazioni di tostature, tabacco,speziato e mallo di noce.In bocca ritroviamo le tostature, una leggera acidit e il tabacco che regala toni pepati, quasi piccanti. Molto ampia, lunga, complessa, specie rispetto al basso grado alcolico.

Beersiveknown (5125) - NORTHERN IRELAND - DEC 12, 2014
Bottle at home from alesela
chestnut tinged dark brown with fluffy dark beige head collapsing to lacing. Rich, fruity, red apple, smoky, cocoa. Full bodied up front, fruity, quite tannic with a dry herbal earthy finish. Definitely tobacco forward but not 100% sure Id have picked it out without the prompt. Fairly warming, perhaps needs a bit of extra body for balance but good stuff. Gentle carbonation with an earthy roast barley/coffee finish.

gegwilson (3525) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - DEC 5, 2014
Bottle from Hippo Beers, Glasgow. Pours black with a big tan head. Nice quite rich chocolate and coffee flavours. Some aniseed too. Just a little on the thin side. Pretty good.

Bozo_skeleton (1072) - Grenoble, FRANCE - NOV 30, 2014
Bien noire, petite carbo donnat un petit collet dense de fines bulles. Aromes bien marqu sur les note torrefies, caf, chocolat et autres noix. Un palais assez enveloppant tout en restant assez mince, des saveurs de caf emplissent la bouche, finale un peu leger.

Bosskie (824) - NETHERLANDS - NOV 29, 2014
Pitch black, nice carbonation, weak head. Smell is caramel, malt, red wine, touch of orange peel. Rose petals? Toffee apple... unexpected things, but good! Taste is well balanced, spicy fizzy cherry sweet bitterness with a touch of citric sourness. Refreshing, with a light almost saison-like sourness.

alberti92 (159) - - NOV 28, 2014
Pours a hazy dark brown with a small tan head. It's quite low bodied with a velvety texture. It has hints of smoke and coffee on the nose with an additional milk chocolate aroma. Taste is very much the same with a subtle bitter finish. One of the first porters I've tried and very much enjoyed it!

tricksta_p (3936) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - NOV 13, 2014
Aroma of roasted malts, chocolate, smoke, tobacco, some peat. Flavour is light sweet with a dry and moderate bitter finish. Body is on the light side. Enjoyable.

CacheManyHose (649) - HONG KONG - OCT 31, 2014
From Craftissimo. Opaque watery brown-black with no head or lacing. Smells of raisin, nutty dark malt, some smoke. Tastes nicely bitter, ash, citrus, dark but with a crisp acidity. Body is thin but quite smooth. Aroma is too sour/raisiny for me but otherwise a surprisingly bitter enjoyable porter.

HKdIPA (735) - HONG KONG - OCT 31, 2014
Bottle from Craftissimo at home. Dark brown/light black pour with tan head. Aroma is roasted, sweet, slightly sour and hoppy. Taste is sort of sour/tart on top of a brown ale/light porter. Also very bitter hoppy towards the end. Tart and a bit smoky finish. Big flavor despite the somewhat light body. Not as smoky as I expected, which is fine. Interesting beer - tasty too. Would get again.

UPDATED: DEC 10, 2014 33 cl bottle. Black colour with minimal off white head. Aroma and flavour of chocolate and roasted coffee, roasted malt, smoked meat. Bitter and dry finish
