3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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!

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
I quite like this. A lot of black IPAs come out on the sweet side and fail to hit the bitter citrus notes that I look for. Not this one. The citrus and pine is there, albeit delicately, and it’s not too sweet. Good beer.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours brown. Roasted chestnuts on the nose with chocolate and malts as well. Citrus on the palate with some funky almost brett sourness as well. A really nice IPA once it got a little warmer, a little too cold when served. (rating backlog rated on or around 16/06/2013)
