3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

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.

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.
