Most browns leave me cold, but when they’re not over sweet it’s one of my favrite styles. This is a nice one - lingers a little bit in the aftertaste in a way I’m not crazy about. but a pretty darn good brown and an excellent value.

The aroma on this beer is wonderful, one of the best brown ale aromas I’ve experienced. Tons of chocolate with bready malt backbone semingly munich malt like. Clear brown ale with toasted head. The flavors lack the depth or power of the aroma however is balanced with moderate roast, mild chocolate, grassy malt flavors, and grassy herbal hop undertones. The palate is wonderful but slightly over-bitter. Overall for value this is a great beer. There are better browns but this one is solid and quite enjoyable.

Bottle pour into nonic pint glass from Trader Joe’s. Aroma is weak bread, caramel and brown sugar. Appearance is clear dark mahogany with trace sparkle, two finger-width foamy beige head with good retention and minimal lacing. Taste is like aroma--like brown bread. Palate is medium bodied with thick texture, soft to average carbonation and sweet, malty finish. Overall, a straightforward, standard brown ale that is decent but nothing special.

Great brown ale for the price. Nothing to write home about but great to pick up whenever we got to Trader Joes.

Not too much aroma. Very mellow flavour, some hot alcohol in the finish. Caramel and dark chocolate. There’s something that’s not quite right but it’s very hard to say exactly what. A touch acid-metallic? or something. Still, not a terrible beer overall.

BlackHaddock (5866) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - DEC 9, 2015
Bottle at the Dec 2015 meeting of the Shrewsbury Beer Share Group. As the name hints, it’s a brown coloured beer, the head beige. Malty with a caramel semi-sweetness along side some bittering coffee grains and chocolate notes. Decent enough without setting the world alight.

Une bouteille avec mon ami Frank. Une robe brune avec une tête compacte et solidifiée. Au nez, malts bruns et céréales rôties, caramel et pointe chocolatée, parfums de noix et/ou de tabac. Au goût, bonne brown ale robuste en saveurs de noix et en notes toastées. Bonne prestance des houblons. En bouche, un liquide au corps de moyenne densité avec un pétillement normal et une texture légèrement crémeuse. Une finale bien agréable sur des notes terreuses. Facile à boire. Merci pour le partage!
