Isabirra is a raw cow's milk cheese that is brined in sea salt from the Culcasi salt mines, soaked in dark craft beer and coated in three different types of barley malt. The result is a straw coloured paste with speckles of barley malt and an edible brown rind that appears patterned with a toasted coffee aroma. The bouquet of flavours is reminiscent of milk, cream, cocoa, coffee, and fresh cut grass.
