Rich chocolaty stout, with a slight sweetness, but without the heavy alcohol kick of many chocolate stouts.

50 cl bottle (4,1%) @ home. Rated on 17.10.2009
Aroma is quite light with some coffee, roasted notes and semi‐dark chocolate. Flavour is slightly sour with coffee, some cocoa and dark chocolate. A bit watery palate. Well roasted malt in the finish. Closer to a porter than mild ale.

Aroma is slightly sweet with roasted notes, chocolate, coffee and nuts. Flavour has chocolate, nuts, some roasted notes. Finishes with toffee typical to English ales. Pleasant and smooth, better than I remembered.

Ótima mild ale do pais de Gales, essa cerveja possui características comum às porters e às stouts. Aroma de café, frutas secas, possui corpo bom com amargor médio e sabor marcante com notas de café, chocolate e malte. Boa cerveja

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Very black mild with a small off-white creamy head. Fizzes a bit in the palate but goes down smooth. Full of smoked aromatic and flavoursome chocolate malts and full-bodied with a smoked aftertaste.

Bottle 4.1%. Deep dark colour though that is to be expected. Hints of chocolate make this very easy to drink.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Lovely black, dark ruby sirup colour with a lovely tan head. On the nose it develops mainly barnyards, earth aromas with some bitter chocolate notes. Light fizzy, surprisingly medium bodied, with bitter notes and some sweetness coming through. Dry notes as well. Light, thin texture. The finish is at first lingering for a while but then becomes dry and rather short. Pretty good welsh beer.
