BlackHaddock (4924) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAR 3, 2015
Cask pint in the brewery owned Lych Gate, Wolverhampton on 28th Feb 2015. Light amber/copper hue to the brew, thin white covering on top. Malts rule the nose and flavour, semi-sweet toffee and caramel notes hide the hop content almost completely. Much prefered it to the BFG. My sweet tooth liked it.
