COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Editors note: the first edition was brewed at Fanø Bryghus, Denmark for the Beer cruise Rome-Barcelona, June 2011 and held 7.5% ABV.

Porter made with espresso, vanilla and toasted almonds for the Beer cruise Rome-Barcelona, June 2011. Italy has a certain “je ne sais quoi” – fab food culture, highly decadent history of art and cool countryside. Some might argue the people are loud and flamboyant, they steal our women, and their soccer players melodramatically flop on the pitch. Listen – that’s all part of the secret Italian ingredient – keep it cool, confident, arrogant and extravagant. Forza Italia!
Malt beverage with almonds, vanilla beans and coffee added.

yngwie (14342) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - FEB 18, 2012
Bottle, 75cl. A gusher, producing a dense, creamy, dark tan head and a more or less black body. Heavily roasted, coffee and chocolate aroma with some nougat nuttyness and a licorice hint. The flavor is a bit heavy on the roasted and burnt side I think, but it’s still very nice. Licorice and nuts too, but I’l like more hop flavors. Bitterness level ok. Full-bodied and effervescent. Some vanilla towards the end. A really pleasant one, but too heavy on the carbonation, and sort of one tracked. Wouldn’t mind more of it though. 120218

Bottle on new years eve this year with frumptydumpty and another one here tonight. Thanks Ryan. GUSHER!!!!!! Don’t remember this on new years eve, but my memory is slightly cloudy from that point in the night. Nose is coffee, roasted malt, light hops, vanilla. Flavor is similarly coffee dominated, roasted malts, some light tartness, a bit of booze, vanilla, cocoa. A little thin and boozy overall, but still drinkable.
