09-NOV-2012, bottle from Fish & Beer, @Ulkløbben meeting @my place.
Hazy amber with tan head.
Malty sweet aroma with heavy hops.
Taste actually much hoppier than aroma. Very malty even for an IIPA. A barley wine?
Never had a bad Toccalmatto and this i very fine again.

750ml bottle from Tanakaya Liquor Store, Tokyo. Cloudy dark reddish brown, big beige foamy head. Hoppy aroma. Barley resin hop flavour. Slightly sickly sweet alcohol aftertaste. A bit too strong for me.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap @ Borefts 2013. A beautiful looking everlasting fluffy foam in the middle of the glass here. Really foamy, deigen in color and lacing the glass with some serious blondes. Smells barreled and double IPA-ish. A strong and powerful malt base in this. Loaded with malty caramel sweetness, a little bit of honey and a whole lot of fresh brutal hops. Yeah, it smells really good this, and the taste is not bad either. As suspected a really strong malty backbone. Thick and oily in the mouth with a soft carbonation level. Really syrupy and tasty. I get a little bit of grassy hops in the finish. Lots of flavor. Fruity sweet aftertaste. 28.09.2013

I just had this beer at Braukunst Live 2014 in Munich. I made a list of the potential best beers and was looking forward to it. What a dissapointment! One of the worst beers ever. Papery and musty smell. No problem with palate or appearance- Oxidixed bitter taste. I had great beers before on the same day and also after.
I am sure it is a good beer based on the reviews, but this keg tasted like a 12 month old imperial IPA.
