Pushing the boundaries of style and definitions: the extreme flavours of Galaxy hops mix with a rich, dark malt base.

Sissio (1297) - 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 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.

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.

Lonick (1499) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - DEC 31, 2013
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)

Christian (12944) - Odense, DENMARK - DEC 30, 2013
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

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
