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.

Clear dark brown beer, no head. Aroma: dark caramel, hint of vanilla, coffee, chocolate, pretty sweet, dried plums, alcohol, grains. MF: soft to no carbon, medium to full body. Taste: sweet start, caramel, coffee, quite some dried fruits, sour touch, prunes and raisins, alcohol, some chocolate. Aftertaste: alcohol, lots of dark chocolate, coffee, little sour, sweet caramel, lots of alcohol warming the throat and mouth.

On tap at Payette Brewing’s tap room during their "Black Friday" event. Huge sweet chocolatey and vanilla aroma and flavor. Silky smooth and sweet chocolatey palate. All I can say is Biscotti. Delicious.

BrunoVille (35) - BRAZIL - NOV 20, 2013
Coloração negra com creme bege escuro denso de curta duração. Aroma predominante de cacau, chocolate e café. Sabor intenso de chocolate com notas também bastante presentes de café. O álcool se faz perceber mas o equilíbrio é extremamente balanceado. O corpo é bem pesado e o líquido chega a ser cremoso na boca, quase como se tivesse leite. Uma excelente breja para quem gosta das escuras fortes! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle from Vintner wine market. Pours black with a half inch of brown foam. Big almond and chocolate notes on the nose. Massive chocolate and almond on the tongue. Hides the alcohol very well. Extremely nice!
