BlackHaddock (6375) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - DEC 24, 2012
Christmas Day 2012 ( ten past midnight and Iíve just finished preparing for later): I need a beer. 500ml bottle conditioned: poured slowly into an íOld Speckled Hení badged pint vase. Nice looking brew: an off-white foaming head sat on top of reddy/brown coloured beer, sadly some of the sediment got out of the bottle so it had a slight hazy hue within the body. Malts rule the roost: caramel nose and taste but not overly sweet. Pleasant blend of ingrediants with a bitter hop backbone running through the maltiness of the main flavours. An OK beer rather than a great brew: would happily try a cask version given the chance though.

maeib (8749) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - MAR 2, 2012
UPDATED: AUG 22, 2013 Bottled. A dark brown coloured beer with an off-white ring of head. Sour and fruity in the nose with chocolate malts. Seems a bit boozy. Sherry and oxidized notes too. The sourness isnít really welcome and itís a bit odd, but I quite enjoyed it. Score 3.1
Subsequent rating scored 1.9. Average becomes 2.5

Dark copper colour, not as dark as a "dark ale" but described as suxh. Creamy head. Aromas malty, slightly fruity. Not quite as dark or intense in flavour as expected but a reasonable bitter.
