Gravicask at NWAF 2013, half pint shared with Finn. Bubbly tan-coloured head. Near-black coloured body. Dark chocolate nose added by vanilla. Woody vanilla flavour mingled with chocolate leading to a malty dry bitter ending. Medium bodied and well made (Manchester, 23.01.2013).

Perpignan73 (19) - Merseyside, ENGLAND - JUL 9, 2016
500ml bottle, chilled, poured into a pint glass at home. Cloudy dark brown colour with minimal tan head, looks like chocolate in a glass; chocolate, coffe and roasty nose; bitter taste; milk chocolate with a hint of caramel palate leading to a bitter finish. Not bad, but given the reviews I was expecting more.

Cask at the Robinson Arms, Nottingham. Aroma tasted malts with Smokey vanilla notes. Pours dark mahogany with thick cream tan foam. Tastes of milk chocolates and coffee with a smith vanilla finish. A very fine specimen, indeed.

BlackHaddock (6201) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - SEP 25, 2015
500ml bottle conditioned: BB Dec 2015. Drank at home on 25th Sep 2015 during a random tasting evening I had with myself. Deep, dark brown bodied brew, the sediment joined the glass, so it was a little ’murky’, the top off-white and slowly fading to a wisp and collar with slight lacing. Aroma of dark chocolate and malted barley. The taste was also dark chocolate and malty, slightly burnt, smoky feel to the flavours. Expected a smoother, richer palate to the brew to be honest, this was OK but lacked depth and discernment.

Black color with a thick beige head. Chocolate, vanilla and light fruity aroma. Rich and very fine blended flavor. Coffee, chocolate, vanilla and some fruity notes. Outstanding!

Cask at the Anchor Birmingham. Poured almost black with a bubbly light tan head. The aroma is big chocolate malt. The flavour is moderate liqourice bitter with a dry coffee spice, chocolate, smoky malt palate. Medium to light bodied with soft carbonation. A little light but packed full of flavour.

ManVsBeer (8490) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - APR 19, 2015
Cask @ The Pumphouse, Liverpool. Black with a thick slightly, off-white, creamy head. There’s a highly desirable chocolate nose to this ale, but it’s disappointingly low of this in its flavour. However it does have a nice smooth tasting texture.
