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.

Bottle at the Klooster. Poured a dark mahogany with a big frothy tan head. The aroma is rich roasted malt, molasses, coffee, boozy alcohol, raisins. The flavour is medium bitter / sweet with a rich malt fruit light vanilla palate. Medium to full bodied with soft carbonation. Packed full of flavour and character. A truly amazing beer from beginning to end.
