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.

peral2 (570) - SWEDEN - SEP 29, 2013
Draft Ölrepubliken i Göteborg , en verkligen härlig stout sannolikt inspirerad av brorsans Texas Ranger och Hot Rod! Den här är minst lika bra, lite lätt chiliton i smaken men inte så att det dominerar! Mkt fin! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

gyllenbock (4652) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - SEP 16, 2013
Bottle from Systembolaget, September 2013. Black with a small tan head. A lot of chocolate in this one. Also vanilla, coffee and roasted malt. A pleasant beer to sip.

SirLimpsalot (2159) - SWEDEN - SEP 7, 2013
@basunen: ganska lätt mjölkig doft med spår av choklad. Smaken är fyllig och ganska söt. Mycket chocklad och vanilj. Trevlig enkel men mycket god. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

No aroma. Nice sweet vanilla flavor. Enjoyable but not special. Head is decent. Not impressed for what it should be. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

AirForceHops (3197) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - AUG 25, 2013
Draft @ Ebenezer’s. Tar black color with lasting beige head. The nose is so good it make me want to drink this with my Breakfast. Rich roasted malts, coffee with cream and almonds. Flavor is decadent. Thick chocolate, espresso beans, light hints of vanilla and burnt sugar. The body is imperial stout like and real full. Lingering roasted finish. Damn I could drink this every week. If I see bottles, I will purchase a few. Top tier coffee porter!

UPDATED: NOV 2, 2013 On tap at Ridgewood (Raleigh). Pours dark dark dark with a bit of lighter head. Sweet aroma with hints of chocolate. Wonderfully sweet taste with grand stout flavors of chocolate and coffee. One of my favorites! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone Rerated - on tap at Bottle Revolution. Not as fabulous as previously noted. Something a big off on this now. Maybe the sweetness is overdone in this batch? Maybe with. Touch of bourbon this would earn back it’s greatness.

On tap at Bait Shop. A smooth, carafa and hops ris but with some lactose sweetness. Not actually that hoppy. Fairly biscuity. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

BelgianBeerGal (3196) - Panama City, Florida, USA - JUL 10, 2013
Draft at the Birch. That’s tasty. Rich porter with tons of coffee and dark baking chocolate. Absolutely no hint of the high ABV too. Very well made and goes down way too easy for this high gravity.

boto (1854) - Granby, Connecticut, USA - JUN 27, 2013
Draught @ Cambridge House: This one pours an opaque, very dark brow color. It has about a finger of a light brown head on it. Suprisingly almost no lacing. The nose is good. Some coffee notes on top. Roasted malts, smokiness and chocolate round out the aroma. The taste is excellent. Coffee, some smokiness, toffee, rich chocolate, hints of dark fruits. Somewhat dry and no real sweetness to it. Extremely nice.
