BlackHaddock (7690) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - DEC 11, 2016
Waxed 660ml bottle between five at the Dec 2016 Shrewsbury Beer Exchange Group meeting; cheers Simon for this offering. Black pour, no head worthy of the name. Aroma had a bourdon element but was leaning more towards malty molasses. Viscous body had flavours of toffee, bourbon and dark fruits, all blending together nicely. Enjoyed this.
