Editor’s Note: Replaced by Imperial Biscotti Break, which has a separate listing. This first edition was a porter made with espresso, vanilla and toasted almonds for the Beer cruise Rome-Barcelona, June 2011. Brewed at Fanø Bryghus, Denmark, 7.5% ABV. Previous bottled and distributed batches were 8.4% ABV.

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, shared with Bergen Beer Geek Tasting Crew. After buying this at Ølbutikken, Copenhagen, it feels really good to have Meilby bring it to the table, cheers man! :-) Pours a pitch black body with a huge beige creamy head. Sooo nice. Nose is almonds, biscuits, licorice, leather, coffee and hints of nuts and caramelized...caramel? :-P In any case, this is quite lovely. Taste is coffee, caramel, nuts, hints of buttery biscuits and ashes. Very nice. High carbonation, full body. A highly pleasant Italian-themed beer very far from most Italian crafts.

tima cerveja, cor negra como a noite, espuma marrom e alta. Aroma delicioso de café, bolo, baunilha e chocolate.

Decent brew, but it for sure misses someting extra, needs a small boost to get really a top-brew for me. Liked it, but wanted to like it more.

Beerdedone (3062) - Croydon, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 23, 2015
Bottle. Pours black/brown with a huge foamy brown head. a gusher that never ended. Aroma of chocolate, coffee and vanilla. flavor was sweet with chocolate, vanilla, coffee, roasted malts and notes of some smokiness. Silky smooth texture, medium body, dry finish.

Awesome beer. Smelled of baked goods, which I would say is a good thing considering it has ’biscotti’ in the title. Heavy drink with strong coffee, cake, and some bitter taste as well. I would say there was a bit of a vanilla flavor as well. Thoroughly enjoyed this. Would put it up there as one of the best that I have had.

Smell is a mix between dark roasted flavor and dark fruits, good mix and diverse flavors! Touch of vanilla, taste is smooth and of vanilla, touch of hot alcohol, bitter roasted finish...could be better

On tap at pizzeria paradisio it is a dark brown with no head. The aroma is chocolate and the taste is a dark chocolate with some sweet molasses overtones

If you would like to smell & taste sweet chocolate, figs, nuts, boozy, molasses, go ahead this is your beer. Not really complex in mouthfeel, one dimensional sweet. No umami character, no lingering aftertaste. I don’t get the hype about this one. Not my cup of tea. Meh.
