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 75 cl. Pours an opaque black with a brown head. Comes a slow gusher. Sweet vanillaish roasty aroma. Solid body, chewy sweet roasty malts and vanilla and a discreet coffee touch. I don’t really pick up any almonds though. No real bitterness just smooth and delicious throughout. 180212

Opaque black-brown beer, good sized tan head. Frothy airy palate, dry. Hazlenut! Hazlenut dominates the dark malt. Trace of coffee. Mild minerals. Not getting any vanilla. Creamy finish. A very nutty beer!

yngwie (14146) - 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
