I have been thinking about making this instructable for a while.
It combines two things I really like
Porter and Nuts

I like eating nuts and drinking porters.

Step 1: Ingridients

1 kg Almonds
2 dl Porter
½dl Soy sauce
Coarse salt

I use a danish porter called
Limfjordsporter
Which is a really dark almost black porter with a pinch of licorice and smoked malt

The roasted almonds are best if the porter has a vigorous

Step 2: Roast the Almonds

This is a optional step where the almonds is roasted.

I normally put the almonds in the oven when the pan is preheating.

I set the oven on approx 150 degrees celcius or 300 degrees fahrenheit and hot air.

The rest of the process uses this setup.

The roasting of the almonds give you more crispy almonds

Remember to stir often

Be aware that the almonds can be burned and therefore you must taste the almonds at intervals to check if they are as you like them

Step 3: Add the Porter to the Pan

When the pan is preheated the porter and the soy can be added.

Be aware that the porter can start to bubble in the start.

After the porter has been added the soy is added

The rest of the porter can be pured into a glass and enjoyed while working

Step 4: Stir Pan and Plate

When the porter is boiling it is important to remember to stir often.
The porter must be boiled down to approx a 1/4. 
This is normally when the buttom of the pan is easier to see and the mix is thicker 

Also remember to stir the almonds in the oven

Remember to enjoy the rest of the porter.

Step 5: Take Out the Roasted Almonds
