BlackHaddock (7356) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - OCT 6, 2015
Hand-pulled half-pint, shared with Gene in Ye Olde Fighting Cocks, Oakengates during our day drinking around Shropshire. Black with a decent and lasting beige head. Nose is chocolate, coffee and cocoa. The taste follows the nose with a smooth blend of flavours with the same chocolate, coffee and cocoa like feel, nice balance. Not too sweet, a well made beer in good condition: wanted more, but we were on a mission.
