This robust dark ale is surprisingly smooth and drinkable. Caramel, molasses and chocolate flavors fill the palate. Its sweet start is perfectly balanced by a roasted dry finish.

On nitro tap at BJís in Fort Collins. Brown/black appearance with a lingering tan head. The aroma is smoky, burnt plastic, earth and light molasses. Similar flavor, light roasted and vegetal with a meaty, light smoky finish. Way off, I could barely stomach it. Yuck.

BlackHaddock (5387) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAY 22, 2015
21st May 2015: BJís Laguna Hills outlet. Part of an eight glass flight. Thought this was the best of the eight beers I tried on the day. Ruby hue to the dark body, on top a lightly tanned foam blanket. Malts all the way here, fairly sweet initially it bottoms out a little drier and roasted latter in the mouth. Hides the alcohol well with itís depth of flavours. My sweet tooth took to this.
