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 è la mia fantasia) e una leggera sfumatura citrica molto piacevole. L’amaro è 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)

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Christian Firtal. Aroma of citrus hops, with some licorice, and a less pleasant note of yeast or old hops(?) Sweet malty flavour with roasted character and licorice, and some citrus hops. Quite bitter finish

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
21st December 2013
Opaque dark brown beer, good pale tan head. Smooth palate, light and crispy. Smooth dark malts, touch of coffee and a whisper of dark chocolate. Tangy dried fruits underneath. Thin light malt cream. Light piney hops, mildly spicy. Very light citrus. Finishes semi dry and crisp. A refreshing and easy drinking black ipa.

Big 75cl bottle. Appearance is deceiving. It looks like a dark beer. But it isn’t. Good full ipa. Would recommend
