Bottle from Beers of Europe. Pours opaque black with a small tan head. Surprisingly rich with a very thick and pleasant mouthfeel. Roasted malt with a little chocolate and almost an ovaltine like flavour to it. I really like this one and will certainly buy it again.

Cask conditioned handpump Criterion Leicester 30/05/12. A very dark, almost black coloured beer with a whitish head. A proper mild mild. Cold coffee, dry smokiness, roasty malts, low hopping. Pretty thin but acceptable.

Nocturne (632) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - DEC 29, 2011
500ml bottle. Forms a small head that lasts for the duration. Very chocolately aroma. Good body, thankfully not as watery as some milds can be. Tastes a bit metallic at times. Overall a good example of this style.

RichardGretton (4176) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - AUG 16, 2011
Bottle. Pitch black beer with a very light head. The aroma is gently roasted, and the flavour is very bittter, roasted, and slightly milky at the finish. Overall a slightly above average mild.

chriso (7344) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 31, 2011
500ml bottle, best before October 2011, from Beers of Europe. Very dark colour. Almost opaque. Tan head and lively condition. deep roast and chocolate aroma. More of the same on the palate but rather less full. Light mouthfeel. A very decent mild but doesn’t quite maintain the promise of the aroma throughout.
