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.

evanrail (74) - Prague, CZECH REPUBLIC - FEB 3, 2017
(ABI version from late 2016, though also tasted as an independent many years ago.) Beautiful color, nutty malt aroma, elegant ad light mouthfeel, slightly sour and oily finish. A really, really nice beer.

sarauckelman (478) - Durham, Durham, ENGLAND - JAN 28, 2017
Dark black with no head. Smooth rich roasted aroma, with a bit of smoke. Flavor is both sweet and smoky, not very complex. Watery at the front with a sticky aftertaste.

comperchris (122) - - JAN 26, 2017
Served in a tulip. Pours jet black with dark creamy tiny head. A bit lacklustre. Smells of woody tobacco and a bit leathery, a very unique earthy aroma which I really liked once I got used to it. Palate is smooth but doesnt really pop. Tastes of sweet tobacco with a long alcohol finish. Very pleasant unique beer which I wouldnt mind having again but doesnt really have the depth it deserves.

ardeo (291) - Flmalle, BELGIUM - DEC 20, 2016
Belle bouteille de 33 cl. Bire noire reflets rubis, mousse moyenne fines bulles. Armes discrets mais o pointent les fruits rouges, le tabac, le goudron. Saveurs mtalliques, chocolat, cerise, fum/rti, amertume lgre. Ma bouteille donnait 6,5 %. Intressant comme dgustation mais pas trop mon truc (je suis non-fumeur) !

Aroma of coffee and chocolate. Black appearance. Medium-high sweetness and light-medium bitterness. Lively carbonation and full body. Very tasteful!

danielst (383) - AUSTRIA - DEC 7, 2016
33cl bottle. Dark reddish brown color. Cocoa and nougat aroma, would not have been able to place the tobacco but theres a more unusual sweet vanilla/herbal note to it. Flavor is on the dry side, but still malty with some caramel. Medium-light mouthfeel, slightly sour and bitter. Solid.

KoNrRiI (1361) - rhus, DENMARK - NOV 25, 2016

0.33 bottle.
A dark brown color and a small, brown head of poor retention. Aroma of roasted dark malts, smoke, chocolate, grains, some dried fruits. Taste is very similar: roasted malts, chocolate sweetness, smoke, bit of coffee perhaps. A medium body, a slick texture, and a soft carbonation. Finish is medium long and sweeter than the rest, introduces cognac. Overall not a bad beer.
