solidfunk (7007) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - OCT 27, 2014
A touch on the mouth-puckering side without letting enough of the other character elements shine through, at least for me. Lots of citrus. Pours dark black. Bottle pour at Churchkey’s 5th anniversary.

BlackHaddock (5849) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - AUG 28, 2014
750ml bottle shared between 6 of us on 23rd Aug 2014 at the Midlands meeting. Not too sure my delicate palate wanted a sour Stout as beer number 13 on the day. Anyway this beer came out almost if not black, with a thin foam topping. Taste and aroma of an old coffee cup with grains going mouldy at the bottom, a rotting Kit Kat finger nestled on the saucer. I did not take to this beer one iota.
