Mortlach's rating

   AROMA 9/10   APPEARANCE 5/5   TASTE 8/10   PALATE 5/5   OVERALL 17/20
Mortlach (1253) - Rome, - DEC 10, 2012
22/11/2012 Brasserie 4:20 (tap). Bevuta al Thanksgiving Day. Nera, impenetrabile, densa, schiuma color cappuccino, molto scura, non molto abbondante ma persistente. Al naso sentori di malti tostati, caffé, cioccolata e liquirizia. In bocca ha un attacco dolce, cioccolatoso, e un finale di liquirizia e caffé, amaro e lungo. Corpo medio-pieno, carbonazione abbondante, alcol incredibilmente nascosto. Imperial stout magistrale, per nulla estrema, ma di grande sostanza ed equilibrio.

BlackHaddock (4867) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - SEP 3, 2014
17th July 2014: Pizza Port San Clemente, first flight, last beer on the paddle. Poured black, with a thin tanned head. The nose was all about burnt malts, with a sweeter undertone of treacle and dark chocolates (filled with caramel). The taste was a smooth extension of those aforementioned smells, but not so burnt and with a rich coffee thrown into the brew. Nice!

13th August 2014
GBBF Day 2. Cask. Opaque dark brown beer, residual tan head. Palate is dry with fine carbonation. Dry rich dark malts. Unsweet dark chocolate, savoury like salted dark chocolate. Big roast and dark chocolate bitterness. Touch of soy. Dry finish. Savoury aftertaste. Not a fan, too savoury, bitter and dry. Quite hard to drink.
