Cask at NERAX. Deep chocolate black pour with tan bubbles. Aroma is grassy, cocoa and roast. Bit of coffee too. Taste is initial malty chocolate and hay etc, followed by a complex roast and hop finish. Smooth and full bodied. Not as sublime as the name suggests, but a very nice and complex stout.
Old note. The aroma has roast, bit chocolate, blackcurrant, bit laurel. Black coloured beer with a tin, off-white head. The taste is light-moderate bitter, has roast, light fruity tones, bit earth. Nice. BlackHaddock (7507) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - JUL 19, 2017
Third of a cask pint at the Scottish Real Ale Festival in Edinburgh’s Corn Exchange on 7th July 2017. Lovely beer, almost black in colour, ruby tinge; good solid head. Roasted malts rule the nose, the taste also malt centric has a mild liquorice feel along side a good sweetness and bitterness from the malts. mzaar (3539) - Varberg, SWEDEN - MAR 23, 2017
