Fortunate is he, who in the name of brewing and good beer, shepherds the weak through the valley of macrobrews. For he is truly his brother’s keeper, and the finder of lost taste buds. Stout aged in Whiskey barrels.

BlackHaddock (4964) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - SEP 2, 2014
650ml bottle shared between 6 at the Midlands tasting on 24th Aug 2014. Poured black with thin off-white head. This is one lovely brew (my sweet tooth cracked wide open). The nose excited my senses as the caramel. toffee, treacle and whisky notes rose up from my glass to fill my nosal passages. The flavours blew away my taste buds and the malty molasses imparted their magic: dark fruits with roasted, coffee, vanilla pods, oak hints and all wrapped around subtle whisky notes. Really enjoyed this.
