venom666 (968) - Elche, Alicante, 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 (1343) - 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 isnt.

330ml bottle (Kittys Helsinki)
Looks good, so dark, and a persistent tight tan head with sticky lacing. Really nettley aroma. Super smooth palate, but in a now-its-there-now-its-gone way. Like a foam in a wanky restaurant, its the thin that there but not there! Lovely roast, so nettly spicing, woh, thats utterly off the wall. What is this beer? No individual component of the beer is amazing, but its 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 Ive not mentioned hops. Dont be fooled, this is monstrously hoppy - all the nettles are pure hops.
