500ml bottle. Pours black in colour with a foamy off-white head leaving some lacing. Nose of roasted malt, citrus hoppy, coffee & chocolate. Roast malt flavour, with smokey, chocolate, coffe, woody notes and some tangy citrus bitterness. Smooth mouthfeel, medium bodied, soft carbonation, dry roast bitter finish. Quite drinkable.

BlackHaddock (7956) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - FEB 16, 2015
6th Feb 2015: Bottle exchange in De Bierboom, Brugge. No idea who brought this. Black pour, beige topping. Roasted malty nose with coffee and chocolate notes leading the way, a floral hint always in the background.The same could be said for the flavours: malty goodness with coffee and chocolate to the fore while behind lurks the floral hop content beavering away to stop the malts taking over completely. Nice, glad I had this early in the evening because it might have got eaten up if the big alcohol hitters had been in and around it.

Bottle; Christmas gift to me. Opaque and black with a beige head. Can’t fault the appearance really. Aroma is coffee; chocolate; oak chips; some smoke; perfume and floral elements. Taste is chocolate chip cookies; cream; nougat; chocolate gateaux; black penny sweets; licorish; some burnt tar; treacle and marzipan. A little hot in the malt but generally very good for the style. My favourite Round Tower beer.
