BlackHaddock (4671) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - DEC 22, 2014
500ml bottle: BBE 05/15, poured into an Abbot ale glass tankard in 12/14. Proper dark brown body with a lasting tanned blanket of foam on top. Roasted, almost burnt malty nose and taste with a ground coffee trace, especially in the finish. Good body depth and a full feel to the texture, leaning towards creamy and oily slick in fact. Very pleasant indeed.

RexTalionis (2958) - FINLAND - NOV 20, 2014
Cask. Dark brown in color, tan bubbly head. Roasted malts, dark and fresh salty licorice in aroma. Salty licorice with lingering roastyness in taste. Smooth coffee vibes as well in finish with some hints of bitterness mixed with even more salty licorice and there’s that light burnt feeling as well present.
