Bottle. Deep brown, almost black, in colour. Very malty (lots of chocolate, bitter coffee, liquorice, roast malts, toffee). Sour fruity (berries, raisins). Hoppy (grassy & earthy hops. Sweet malts balanced by fruity & hoppy sourness. Nice balance. Dry hoppy finish. Very tasty. Very nice beer! (2009-02)

50 cl bottle @ home. Rated on 12.02.2009BlackHaddock (9509) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAY 2, 2012
Aroma has riupe fruits, malty notes, some caramel and toffee. Flavour is malty and somewhat sweet with fruity notes, toffee, caramel and hints of licorice. Good.
Oct 2006 from BA: I enjoyed this bottle, poured into a Gordon’s Thistle glass (twice because of the bottle size). It looked great, dark, very dark brown, with a thick light brown foaming head. Sadly the head shrank away very swiftly.
Burnt caramel and chocolate aroma, which carried on into the taste and mouthfeel. Tasted just like a good quality, strong brown ale, but without the sweetness often found in browns.
At £1.09 for the 500ml bottle, it is well worth seeking out.

Brotiger Antrunk, weich, mild. Danach unscheinbarer, nicht unbedingt harmonisch, langweilig malzig, später auch muffig. Erst im Abgang wieder frischer durch Getreidenoten, etwas röstig. Insgesamt trinkbar aber unspektakulär. 7/7/7/8/11/7

Bottled. A deep red beer with a thin beige head. The aroma has notes of malt and caramel. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt, caramel, and bread, leading to a dry and bitter finish. RexTalionis (4036) - FINLAND - JAN 14, 2011
