BlackHaddock (7038) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - APR 13, 2015
Gravity pour: third of a pint. 9th April 2015, Isle of Man beer festival. Good looking dark brown brew, almost black in fact: on top a full off-white creamy textured head. Not a lot of aroma, some malts maybe. The malts do show heavily in the taste with a semi-sweetness that needs the hops to calm them down (which they do) a bit. Decent and worth trying.

Pizd (435) - Merseyside, ENGLAND - NOV 16, 2013
(Cask): Black with a small off white head. Aroma of coffee, chocolate, liquorice and lactose. Mild coffee flavour with quite a sweet, fruity finish. Not bad for a single pint but the sweet finish would put me off sessioning it.

downender (8517) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - SEP 13, 2012
Cask-conditioned at the Black & Gold beer festival, the Gryphon, Bristol 2/9/2012. Near black with a slight tan head. Dark chocolate and black coffee aroma with a touch of berry sweetness. Full bodied mouth feel, with more chocolate and fruit flavours, leading to a soft finish. Good.
