BlackHaddock (4593) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - FEB 2, 2015
330ml bottle: BBE Jun 15 (Lot 829). Obtained from the brewery and broached on 26 Jan 15. Black with a dark tanned topping. The nose was sweeter than the semi-sour flavours and although chocolate notes could be found in the aroma dark fruits tastes gave the beer a tart feel and hide whatever sweetness there was or had been. OK, but not what I expected to be honest.
