BlackHaddock (3645) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - AUG 14, 2014
Bottle conditioned 500ml. BBD 30 Sep 15, carefully poured into a UK pint sleeve on 13 Aug 14. Amber body with a copper hue, small off-white head. Malt base and front in both the nose and taste, semi-sweet molasses drown out the hop content but this is not overly sweet, I liked it. Mild nutty flavours in between the toffee and caramel feel to the brew, medium bodied and nicely put together.

On cask (handpump) at Great British Beer Festival, day 3 on 6 August 2009. Darkish copper. Mainly malty - nutty and toffee. I know that was probably intentional but I would have preferred a more assertive hop presence - the hops are distinctly restrained and slightly earthy. A workmanlike but unspectacular bitter with a rather old fashioned feel.
