Golden color and creamy white load and foam, the Toccadib˛ reminds us once a golden strong ale.
In the nose, is clean and dry with pronounced alcoholic sensations that soon evaporate leaving a magnificent triumph of fruity peach and apricot syrup that is well balanced with hints of hops flavoring reminiscent of the chives.
In the palate, announced the sensation of "warming" is well contrasted by bold dryness that gives us a spicy aftertaste, clean and sharp that leads us, despite the strong alcohol content, just a second glass to be desired. More attentive the taster will not escape an unusual but pleasant hint of amaretto.
A table can be combined perfectly with white meat, but may surprise and degrease elaborate dishes of game, fight fat cheeses with long ripening prove irresistible tarts and fruit syrup or amaretti.
Ingredients: water, barley malt, hops, yeast, spices.
Serving temperature: 10 ░ -12 ░ C

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle at CGarvie tasting. It pours pale yellow with a small white head. The nose is sherbet, apple, sweet pear, orange and floral notes. The nose is quite light, sherbet, straw, apple, pear, honey and floral notes with a sweet finish. Light-medium body and fine carbonation. A bit light for the style and too sweet for my tastes.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
750ml - Poured a slightly cloudy darkish amber in color with a small white head that quickly faded to a thin rim around the beer. Aroma was more than slightly skunky (disappointing!), slightly malty and sweet. Flavor was also quite skunky and disappointing (considering what I paid for this crap). SKUNK is to much to be ignored...it is the dominant characteristic of the beer... yuck! Quite bad...
