After a long day down the pit, miners from the north of England wanted something that could wash away the dirt and coal dust without slowing the re-hydration process down with excess alcohol. English Milds are low in alcohol (3.7%) and despite their dark brown appearance they’re extremely easy to drink. Dark crystal and chocolate malts give a beautifully rounded palate with distinct chocolate and coffee overtones. What could be better than to add fresh vanilla beans to accentuate the chocolate aromas and flavours and make this a highly engaging beer. It’s a one stop shop for beer lovers who want their cake and drink it too.

Draught sample, Pours dark with low level foam and little carbonation. Malty, chocolatety and roast aromas show. With rich buscuity and coffee flavours showing there is a restrained sweetness to counterbalance. The palate is quite smooth and well rounded and it finishes well. Would like to taste more from this brewer.
