Color marrone scuro con una densa schiuma beige. Al naso malti tostati e agrumi. Al palato caffè, cacao, con un finale luppolato e agrumato, forse di pompelmo. brandon31g (37) - HONG KONG - OCT 20, 2015
Pours a black colour topped with very thick beige head providing some lacing. Aroma delivers citrus, roastiness, coffee and a few spice. The mixture reminds me of Chenpi (dried tangerine peel). As a black IPA, it has a light mouthfeel comparing with most stout. Light to medium body. Taste contains tartness of grapefruit, bitterness between grapefruit and coffee bean and slight grassiness. Toasty bitterness on finishing. Patjeadam (158) - NETHERLANDS - OCT 17, 2015
Bottle @ home. What an amazing black ipa, or should I say black cascadian ale. First aroma is underwhelming with the first taste. Chocolate, creamy coffee, fruits, flowers, roasted malts, sweet caramel. Incredibly good balance. One of the best I had in the black ipa corner. Highly recommended.

Fles gekocht @De Bierkoning. Mijn 1e Toccalmatto (Smoking Trojka collab met Jopen en Grateful Deaf niet meegerekend). Een mooi zwart bier met mooie schuimkraag. Aromas van gebrande mout, hop, fruit. De smaak is bitter, hoppig, donker, fruitig. In de nasmaak proef je de gebrande mout met de bitterheid van de hop. Heerlijke black IPA. wiosna (591) - - AUG 25, 2015

0,25l in cask @ BQ Milano. Pours very dark red with a medium tan head. Aroma is roasted malts with some fruits. Flavor is roasted malts, grapefruit and hops. Nice. lownote (585) - Austin, Alabama, USA - AUG 6, 2015
Bizarre beer. Aroma is both roast and citrus. Flavor is the same but has a long lingering smoky bitterness. Pours black with some thick head. Light ish and well carbed. Really interesting. Iznogud (4111) - CROATIA - JUN 11, 2015
Bottle, 750 ml from Roybeer, Milano. Shared with Miro and Kova. Dark brown with light brown head. Roasted malts, fruit, hoppy, chocolate, bitterish. Medium to full bodied. Another nice beer from Toccalmatto. SkillsFactory (738) - ITALY - MAY 30, 2015
Color marrone scuro, quasi nero, bella schiuma nocciola di buona persistenza.
Aroma di malti tostati (caffè), pompelmo e note erbacee.
Al palato attacca con note tostate seguite poi da pompelmo e, successivamente, caffè, cacao, nocciole e liquirizia; termina con un amaro di pompelmo molto marcato.
Corpo medio, oleosa, mediamente carbonata. oliodnb (662) - ITALY - APR 28, 2015
75cl bottle shared. Pours very dark reddish brown with a beautiful beige head leaving some lacing on the glass. Aroma is mostly light tropical and candied fruits with an unpleasant acidic note that fades away as the beer warms up. Taste starts with a faint sweetness followed by roastiness, coffee, some bitterness. Almost nothing to support the roasted component, maybe due to the bottle age (exp. 08/2015) that could have killed the hops. Medium body, medium carbonation. Disappointing.
