Bottle thanks to allmyvinyl. Appearance - opaque black with a nice head. Nose - molasses, tar as the man says, toffee and chocolate too. Taste - liquorice or tobacco. Then hazelnuts, dark chocolate, tar again. Palate - close to medium bodied with a creamy texture and a long dry finish. Overall - a nice interesting beer.

Bottle from The Beerhive. Dark brown body with a thin beige head. Light lacing. Aroma of coffee, vanilla and copper. Flavour of chocolate, rust and filter coffee. Thin body with a watery texture. Soft fizz. A bit too thin. Simple.

BlackHaddock (5387) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - FEB 16, 2015
6th Feb 2015: large sample at the 3rd De Bierboom (Brugge) beer exchange. Still early when this arrived at my table: very dark pour with loads of coffee and chocolate notes in both the aroma and taste. This is a bitter Stout with no hints of íMilkí anywhere within itís make up. We are talking black coffee, dark chocolate and crushed nuts here. Pleasant and different, thanks who ever brought it (I was the only RateBeer user there, I think).

(Cask at Southampton Arms, Gospel Oak, London, 27 Nov 2014) Black colour with hints of ruby. Brief beige head. Malty, roasted nose with black coffee, dark chocolate, tar and black rye bread. Malty, roasted taste with notes of coffee, dark chocolate, dark bread, a touch of tar and smoke, and a generous roasted bitterness in the finish. Medium body, quite dry. Well made and tasty stout. Very nice.

gegwilson (2524) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - DEC 27, 2014
Bottle from Vesuvio in Darlington. Pours mahogany with a cream head. Quite a bit of nice coffee and chocolate flavour to this along with a bit of burnt toast. Mild spice too. A little on the thin side perhaps, but otherwise a decent stout.

Bottle from Glug Newcastle. Pours deep black with tan head, okay lacing. Roast flavours, coffee in particular. A rich one but not ruined by sweetness like some stouts. Complex and enjoyable.

Bottle. Poured dark with a tan head. Light curtains on the glass. Aromatics were moscavado, milk and nuts. Combined with tasting it I got roasted grains, espressooils. A long sweet taste with a disturbingly brutal bitter end. Good!
