Draft Ölrepubliken Göteborg under Toccalmatto provning . Fantstisk mörkbrun nästan svart färg med beige/ljusbrun skumkrona . Mer rostad maltig smak som en stout än som en IPA men riktigt god ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Dark ebony, with abundant fine and persistent slightly brownish foam. Nose citrus scent in the foreground, especially grapefruit, and then a touch of pine needles and coffee. fresh, clean and elegant aroma. Feeling somewhat oily, smooth and round mouth, with initial notes of toast and then sweet grapefruit pulp with a lightweight notes of coffee and chocolate. final fall to the bitterness of an IPA dry cutting with the presence of resin and grapefruit zest. fragrant, very clean and very easy to drink beer. Stylistically halfway between a black and a hoppy stout Ipa. Body and medium carbonation.

venom666 (835) - Elche, SPAIN - AUG 9, 2016
Pours a black color with brown notes and medium beige head with great retention. Nice aroma, pine, grapefruit, grass, roasted malts, coffee and resin. Taste is intense, very IPA-ish, citrusy, piney, grassy and grapefruity, good roasted malt and chocolaty/cofee back-end. Finishes with a strong bitterness on the aftertaste.

Bottiglia 33cl. Nera con schiuma beige, aroma fantastico di malto torrefatto, pino, note agrumate. Ottima al palato con malto, luppolo, sentori di cacao nel finale che rimane comunque asciutto. Bassa carbonazione, dote perfetta per il genere.

Manslow (1020) - Warsaw, POLAND - APR 14, 2016
Warszawski Festiwal Piwa 2016. Kolor czarny z białą małą ale dobrze trzymającą się pianą. Aromat cytrusowy z owocami i kawą a w smaku trochę kwasowości ale do zaakceptowania nawet dla mnie, świetne piwo

Bottle 0.33l at Amsterdam, Helsinki. BBE 02/07/16. Colour is black with small white head. Aromas and flavours: Fruits, citrus, roastiness, coffee and roasted roasted malts. Pretty nice. Some weird sour elements when starting to drink. I thought first bottle is contaminated but it isnít.

330ml bottle (Kittyís Helsinki)
Looks good, so dark, and a persistent tight tan head with sticky lacing. Really nettley aroma. Super smooth palate, but in a now-itís-there-now-itís-gone way. Like a foam in a wanky restaurant, itís the thin thatí there but not there! Lovely roast, so nettly spicing, woh, thatís utterly off the wall. What is this beer? No individual component of the beer is amazing, but itís all extremely interesting and really bloody good. Good show. Now I am convinced Toccalmatto are right at the pinacle of Italian brewing, this is a stand-out beer that every brewer should taste. You may notice Iíve not mentioned hops. Donít be fooled, this is monstrously hoppy - all the nettles are pure hops.
