BlackHaddock (4916) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAY 28, 2015
28th May 2015: 330ml bottle poured into a La Chouffe badged stemmed tulip in Southern California where it is currently sunny and hot. The first beer of a random tasting session I am having with myself and no one else. Bit of a gusher, the brew flew out the bottle to give me a murky looking dark brown bodied beer with a lasting lightly tanned head. Malty and yeasty in nature, the aroma being malt led with a toffee and chocolate hints for the nose to find. The taste follows along in the same lines with the maltiness overpowering the hops and yeast flavours. Mild liquorice also within a mini-sour note or two in the mouth. I liked it: a good start to what will be a heavy session (I hope).
