Cask at GBBF. Black with a red hue, small bubbly tan head. Aroma is red berry, a little gluey, soft malts. Body is medium, smooth, low carbonation. Taste is resinous, chocolate, red berry. They say it has port overtones - I guess there is some berry action. Decent.

BlackHaddock (5193) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - JUL 2, 2015
30th June 2015. Cask half-pint in The Wellington, Birmingham City Centre. Poured a very dark brown colour with a beige head: almost a Black and Tan look. Rich aroma of roasted malts and hints of chocolate bars. The taste is fairly sweet with the chocolate from the nose showing heavily in the smooth, rich body. Really enjoyed this, had a train to catch or I would have had a pint, and then another, etc, etc.
