Amazing beer. Very strongly roasted coffee malt, with a fruity backbone of hops. Also has a surprising taste of salt, which gives the beer extra depth. Very good.

Wolfbass (927) - Firenze, ITALY - MAR 6, 2014
Color mogano con riflessi rossi, e schiuma compatta e persistente color cappuccino. Al naso balza subito la componente agrumata, dopo invece compare anche il tostato. In bocca č davvero splendida, equlibratissima tra la parte agrumata e gusto leggero di caffč. Eccellente.

0.75l bottle shared with The Tasting Crew. A really good looking huge dark brown head on this one! The beer itself is deep dark and as good as black in the glass. On the nose I get grassy hoppy tones. Will mention that it’s not a fresh bottle this. Also there are tones of phenol, bitter chocolate, salty nuts and a hint of coffee. Really nice lacings on the sides of the glass after a while. Slightly salty and licorice coconut infused in the taste this. It has a above soft prickling carbonation level and a oily mouthfeel. It’s actually quite tasty. Roasty bitter aftertaste and more of that licorice lingering. Quite good. 09.10.2013

Sissio (601) - Orsenigo, ITALY - JAN 18, 2014
Black brown with ruby reflexions. Nice rounded aroma of hops and citric, with a hint of bitter chocolate. Mouth-filling yet not invading, hop bitterness balanced with malts and citrus freshness. Quite bitter and persistent bitter aftertaste, perhaps too persistent for my taste. Not my favorite Toccalmatto, but a great one though!

Con questo prodotto lo Stivale scalcia sul panorama birraio una dark ipa davvero degna. Aroma molto ricco, erbaceo e tostato. Gusto che coinvolge note erbacee (resina di pino, ma forse č la mia fantasia) e una leggera sfumatura citrica molto piacevole. L’amaro č bello intesto e chiude in un finale morbido che persiste sul palato.
