COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Golden color and creamy white load and foam, the Toccadibò reminds us once a golden strong ale. In the nose, is clean and dry with pronounced alcoholic sensations that soon evaporate leaving a magnificent triumph of fruity peach and apricot syrup that is well balanced with hints of hops flavoring reminiscent of the chives. In the palate, announced the sensation of "warming" is well contrasted by bold dryness that gives us a spicy aftertaste, clean and sharp that leads us, despite the strong alcohol content, just a second glass to be desired. More attentive the taster will not escape an unusual but pleasant hint of amaretto. A table can be combined perfectly with white meat, but may surprise and degrease elaborate dishes of game, fight fat cheeses with long ripening prove irresistible tarts and fruit syrup or amaretti. Ingredients: water, barley malt, hops, yeast, spices. Serving temperature: 10 ° -12 ° C

Carried home from Italy, April 2009, where I bought it at Johnny’s Off License in Rome, and shared June 2011. Very nice, opaque bright orange color. A great looking beer. Big, rocky, pillow-like, white head. Light sweet with yeast, strong earthy quality with dirt and grass. Very light spice. A good beer.

3.5
Skyview (6055) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - JUN 12, 2011
Sampeld from 500 ml bottle shared by jk. Pours a semi-hazy golden amber colored brew with a thin off-white head that quickly dissipates. Aroma of toasted caramel malt, a hint of toffee, dried apricots, and some floral hops. Taste is medium bodied, flavors of toasted caramel malt, some dried coriander and clove. Finish is semi-dry with a caramel and toast crust aftertaste that slowly disappears.

3.6
BDR (2534) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - JUN 11, 2011
Thanks to JK for this. A beautiful hazy sunset orange color with some sediment floating about. Very white head that diminished quickly. Not as spiced as I’d expected but a wonderful aroma of bread, and perhaps a bit of clove. The body is light and smooth.

after4ever (8025) - Mukilteo, Washington, USA - MAY 13, 2011
500, capped. Pours a murky toffeeish light brown with a loose whitish film on top. Big creamy green apple nose. Creamy medium body with soft lively carb. Toffee, sweet cream, and green apples on the mid palate. Kind of candyish. Sweet finish. Nice but fairly unremarkable.

3.7
Wolfbass (1166) - Firenze, ITALY - JAN 11, 2011
Bel colore dorato pieno con schiuma bianca fine. Al naso non sembra neanche una Belgian SA, anche se la componente alcolica è subito evidente. Note di frutta matura, spezie e luppolo. In bocca si è decisamente più tradizionale, il dolce compare, ma ottimamente equilibrato da una buona secchezza. Anche in bocca la nota alcolica si fa sentire, ma in modo equilibrato.
