BlackHaddock (4150) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - OCT 31, 2014
Cask: hand-pulled pint on 24th Oct 2014 in the lovely Abbotsford, Edinburgh. Deep reddy brown, clear with a full lasting head. Aroma was both fruity and dry malty molasses. The taste was like the nose: fruity, malty and fairly dry in nature, I also found some rye bread type flavours and a mild hop bitterness in the finish. Decent.

mkel07 (3731) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - AUG 3, 2014
Bottle from The Wine Emporium 030814. Huge tan head that leaves some good lacing on the glass. Aroma is pleasant and the flavour is equally so. Not sure about hop extravaganza as the labels states but is is reasonably hoppy.
