rickgordon (3851) - GŲteborg, - JAN 21, 2013
Draught at ÷lrepubliken. Dark brown color, I guess almost black. Way too toasty in both aroma and flavor. Hop flavor is practically not there due to the dark malts. Bitterness is big and adequate. This is one of those black ipas that really tastes like a foreign stout with less sweetness. The beer is good but it is not a black ipa.

Manslow (969) - 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

VastActiv (4991) - Oulu/Helsinki, FINLAND - MAR 19, 2016
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.

eduardovl (1278) - SWITZERLAND - MAR 12, 2016
330ml bottle served in plastic glass. Enjoyed at Craftissimo(http://www.craftissimo.hk) - Hong Kong.
A: Pours a dark brown color forming medium and very creamy tan head. Good retention and lots of soaping lacings left in the glass.
S: Great nose: Roasted malts, bread, grassy hops. Herb, pine, zest, licorice. A bit smoky adnd a bit sour.
T: Slightly sweet upfront followed by a dry, bitter, grassy hops and slightly sour in the end. Great roastiness. Good roasted/hoppy bitterness balance.
M: Medium body. Good carbonation. Roasted/grassy hops aftertaste.
O: Great drinkability. Great Black IPA from Toccalmatto!

Bottle (great label btw). Black. Salt licorice, roast, soft chocolate on nose. Malty, bit dry body, finishes herby piney. Lots of flavour here, pines, bit dry malty slight harsh finish. But has some sweetness too, abv warmth. Quite nice overall.

In bottle. Amazing Aroma and taste to match. My young sun smelt it and said straight away, smells like lychees! He has a point. A smashing full well balanced beer. Top drawer. Forza Italia!

Flanfl (527) - Bordeaux, FRANCE - FEB 13, 2016
Black body, medium head. Aroma is fairly hoppy, citrus, light roasted malt, smoke. Flavours of citrus, orange, roasted malt. Medium body and carbo. Roasted coffee finish, good bitterness. Good but not fresh so I guess I lost some hoppy notes. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Dark brown nearly black, with a medium beige head. Aroma is floral, hoppy and fruity, some coffee. Taste goes very complex, straight bitter-tart, coffee, grapefruit, very hoppy, some roasted malts. A great ale.
