BlackHaddock (4995) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - JAN 27, 2015
24th Jan 2015. Bottle at Cotteridge Wine meeting: cheers Colin for bringing this beauty. One of the best beers of the day in my opinion. Deep brown/black pour with a thin tanned head of a creamy texture. Aroma had a coffee, chocolate and bourbon smell, the taste similar with vanilla also within the rich flavours. Really smooth and full bodied, a really nice beer.

Boittled, sampled at The Cotteridge Convention, many thanks to Theydon_Bois for this. Black with tan head. This was a big, full beer, cocoa nibs, dark malts and roasted coffee bitterness. Lasting on the palate. A really decent beer.

Bottle at Cotteridge Tasting, Saturday 24th January 2015 Wonderfully slick in mouth you know this is going to be a cracker and it is a real cracker. Velvety in the mouth, it is smooth, slick, a little oily, the barrel ageing works magnificently This is lovely very indulgent. And what does it taste of, erm... nice stuff, I can’t be arsed to go into details enjoying it too much. A8 A4 T9 P5 Ov16 4.2
