BlackHaddock (4964) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - OCT 7, 2013
On the 3rd Oct 2013 my wife and I had 22 half-pints between us at the 35th Telford Beer Festival: this was one of those 22. Hand-pulled, deep amber in colour, just like the brewery blurb says it is, with a thin white head. Caramel malts certainly came through in the nose and taste: this is a malty brew for sure. Leaning towards a Winter warmer sort of beer, but lacking that rich, open fire sort of feel they often give. I like semi-sweet malty brews and this fitted nicely into that category.

Dark red-brown with an off-white head. Aroma of roast malt, strong coffee, chocolate. Taste was light sweet, big bitter finish, almost porter-like. Medium-thin oily texture, with light carbonation. I really like this one.
