BlackHaddock (3598) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - AUG 17, 2014
500ml Bottle: BBD 10/2014, poured out on 17th 09/2014 at home. Black body, thin tan head. Semi-sweet malty nose, and taste with liquorice notes also in both the aroma and flavours. Although obviously malt based it does have a good hop bitterness within the mouth. A good, easy to drink Porter: cheap too, from B & M Bargains.
