Dubbel Coffee Stout Tiramisu

All the flavours of a traditional tiramisu, just using the artfully brewed Sharp’s Dubbel Coffee Stout. It’s boozy, rich and indulgent, with just the right amount of coffee background. Share a bottle of the stout alongside the Tiramisu to really heighten the beer and dessert experience.
