BlackHaddock (3772) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - OCT 14, 2013
50cl Bottle: BBD 31 Jul 2014, poured into an Abbot Ale glass tankard on 14 Oct 2013. Over chilled it. Good deep beige head on top of a lovely clear, mahogany body: looked good. The nose began to give off some malty notes as it warmed and they were also prominent in the taste, not as sweet as I half expected, this had a more semi-sour fruitiness feel to the flavour than malty molasses: traces of bitter, dark chocolate also appeared later in the aroma and taste Medium bodied with a little too much carbonation for my palate, the hops giving a fine bitter finish to a beer that got better each degree it warmed.
