On the "1001" list, this should not be except for the deal between the General Editor and the "reporter" promoting Italian beers.

Bottle. Pours a dark, dark brown. Tobacco Porter. Hmmm. I hope it doesn't force me to start smoking again. Aroma is rather oxidized. Smells like barbecue sauce in a funny way. Also a bit earthy. Tangy soy sauce. Some tobacco. More generic Porter flavors. Actually pretty interesting. The body is fairly light. I would like more pronounced tobacco. I think the idea is pretty cool.

Looks, smells and tastes like a regular porter. Taking into account that I knew it had tobacco added, and if you really dig for it, you can find some faint notes. But overall it's a really nice and easy drinking porter.

A: Dark brown with an amber tinge, no carbonation and a half finger of beige head.



S: Vanilla, chocolate, brown sugar, bananas, light tar, licorice, a light cigar quality but really hidden.



T: Chocolate, light fruity quality, licorice, tar, not really getting vanilla, a hint of brown sugar, perhaps some tobacco on the finish.



M: medium thick slightly oily body, medium low large flat bubbled carbonation.



O: Got on Wishbeer, drank in Kunming March 13, 2015. Wish the tobacco came through more. Artsy bottle, great idea, and well done for a porter.
