Towey1989 (2922) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 1, 2016
Keg at The Hop Inn, Newcastle-Under-Lyme. 7.3% ABV. A black colour with a foamy mocha head. Aroma of roasted malts, coffee, dark chocolate, some caramel, slight brown sugar and subtle dark fruits. Taste of roasted malts, coffee, dark chocolate, some caramel, slight dark fruits, a little brown sugar, a hint of soy sauce and subtle fudge. Full bodied and moderate carbonation. A dryish, fudgy, roasted bitterness in the finish. A full bodied, traditional styled porter. Brodie’s brew flavourful beers and this is no exception. Nice to have a high ABV beer that’s simple and well made. Very nice.

BlackHaddock (7410) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAR 17, 2013
Hand-pulled half-pint in Brodies King William 1V on 16 feb 2013. Pump clip said 7.8% ABV but you couldn’t tell it had that must alcohol in it. Black with an off-white top. Roasted coffee beans and dark chocolate vie for position in the nose as the malts give off strong esters to excite your sences. The taste is also of coffee and chocolate but with some plum like fruitiness too. Rich and deep, this was by far the best beer I had during my Brodie drinking evening.

3.4
JorgeLee (2134) - Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 24, 2013
Cask at King William IV. The strength of this beer escaped my notice and may have contributed to slight headache! Drinkable for the abv for sure, would have said 6% but not 8%! Dark black, hint of ruby in the bottom. Curious complex beer, smooth coffee, cake, quite a silky palate, then quite a pronounced bitter and actually hoppy finish. Nice, although I think a more earthy hop blend may have balanced it out better.
