    I'm not familiar with Italian beers yet- they just started showing up on the shelves around here. But I really am interested in getting into them- your passion for them is certainly infectious and is pushing me their way!

    Thanks Tongo! Feel free to beermail with any questions!

    In reference to this L'Ultima Luna, all I can describe was a barleywine aged in french oak barrels that had Italian wines, and the taste is a distanc chocolate taste with a unique soy flavor. Not what I expected but I DID finish the bottle, albeit I did cap it and have a little each day until gone.

    If I was to suggest an Italian beer to have first I would try the Baladin Super which is belgian style or Birra Del Borgo Reale or Reale Extra.

    Enjoying my first one of these this year...finally! Took a lot of work to find it this year, as DC and VA have seen none in bottles and no one seems to know when its coming. I fortunately was able to case a case at 2 different stores in MD. Cheers.
