BlackHaddock (4209) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - APR 15, 2012
On tap at the 16th Essen Christmas beer festival (2010): drank the day before my new friends Brabander and Beerpirates arrived at the fest (the draught ran out, hence they had the bottled version to review). The one and only barrel available being matured for one year before being breeched for the festival. Pours a really dark reddy brown, almost black in colour, the head a mid tan. The smell was a pleasant mix of liquorice and ground coffee. The liquorice dominated the taste, it’s flavours overcoming even the sweet molasses and bitter coffee taste that didn’t show up until the mouth began to dry. The alcohol content well hidden behind the strenght of flavours wasn’t noticeable until the very end of each sip. Pleasant, but not brilliant.

dreadnord (1013) - San Diego, California, USA - MAR 12, 2012
Pours muddy and murky brown with an overactive head. A very subtle pour resulted in a 5 finger rocky head that took way to long to calm down. Once it did the nose was ripe dark fruits and rich spices along with a bit of wood. Flavor is a bit of a let down after such a rich nose. It's sweet with a bitter finished but just doesn't excite like the nose did. Mouthfeel is crisp and oily. Long aftertaste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
