The_Osprey (2785) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 31, 2015
Bottle share at Cotteridge Wines. Black, small brown head. Aroma is smoke, molasses, sugary. Body is medium, foamy, low carbonation. Taste is sweet, tangy malt, slight smoke, soft earthy bitterness. I can’t believe that this is approaching 12%, as it drinks like a 7% export stout.

BlackHaddock (4552) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - JAN 28, 2015
24th Jan 2015: shared bottle at the Cotteridge Wine meet. Black with a tanned topping. How do you like your malts? Smooth, rough or not at all? This brew is all about smooth maltiness and the richer elements they bring to a beer, however there is also a mini-bite to this beauty and it is not as innocent as it’s Tiny name implies.

Fin (8107) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 15, 2015
UPDATED: JAN 16, 2015 Bottle from Beers of Europe, Kings Lynn, (purchased directly from shop) consumed at dads, Kilburn, Derbyshire, Thursday 15th January 2015. Rather meaty in the mouth, stock cube, liquorice. Thick’ish’ in mouth a little boozy on the tip of tongue, some dark treacle and then bitter chocolate, but the meaty stock flavour reigns supreme. Its nice but it isn’t as good as I expected. Colour is black with tan head. A6 A4 T7 P4 Ov13 3.4

Changed (369) - Ithaca, New York, USA - DEC 31, 2014
Bomber from FLBC, Ithaca. Pours black, beautiful brown, long-lasting head. Barely any lacing. Aroma is coffee, earth, booze. Flavor is licorice, chocolate, roasted malts, hints of banana, perhaps some stone-fruit, oh, and lots of booze. Well carbonated and a pretty substantial mouthfeel. Lasting taste with the creamy finish. Pretty damn good one here.
