A full strength mahogany coloured beer, which has a moreishness typical of a beer possessing the fine balance of pronounced hop bitterness & aroma against a natural malty sweetness, creating a deceivingly drinkable beer.

BlackHaddock (3635) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - APR 26, 2012
Nov 2009: Brown 500ml bottle obtained from the brewery on a visit earlier this year. Poured into a pint sleeve glass. Clear, light to medium brown body, white foaming head on top at first, the head slowly losing depth and becoming a wispy covering and collar. Flower garden smell, an English country garden at the height of its blooming period, must be growing toffee’s though! I am a big fan of ’Fuggles hops’ and their aroma. Although used in this brew, I couldn’t detect them. Biscuity, malty and fruity (apples, red berries and pomegranate). The flavours mix and semi-match, making this an interesting and complicated beer. The 5%ABV is evident, but well balanced for the body and richness of the beer.
