Move over Nutella, there is something new to spread over toast in the morning… beer!

The product is the result of joint venture between two companies from Italy, Napoleone, an Italian chocolatier; and the Alta Quota brewery. They say the spread is great on toast, as a cake filling, and with cheese or appetizers.

There are two kinds of beer spread: one is delicate, while the other has a more intense aroma and stronger taste. The pâté is made using two beer varieties from Alta Quota, Omid dark ale and Greta blond ale. Both light and dark spreads are almost half ale, with the remaining proportion – syrups and gelling agents – providing the voluptuous body of the gooey paste.

All of this reminds me that I still want to try to make a Nutella stout.
