BlackHaddock (6908) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - JUL 24, 2016
9th July 2016: on-tap in BierCaB Barcelona with the RBESG guys. Poured jet black with a small tanned head. Aroma was all about roasted malts with chocolate esters. The taste similar with chocolate flavours coming from the malty base: liked it. Good dry finish to a fine Imp Stout: another heavily alcohol brew during our session in BierCaB.
