4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: MAR 6, 2011 On handpull at the Cask Pub and Kitchen, Pimlico. Colour; dark brown/ruby, foamy toffee-coloured head. Nose: crisp, smoky, caramel malt. Taste: smooth, malty, coffee, dark chocolate, decent bitterness, refreshing with a brilliant taste for such a low percentage. As milds go this is as good as Iíve ever tasted.

A little watery but nicely smoked and lightly hopped a good mild if a little unconventional.

UPDATED: FEB 22, 2010 Cask, Tynemouth BF. This is the dry hopped version and man, was it hoppy! Dark and flavoursome, bitter and tangy. I love drinking beers of around this ABV and love the fact that they can pack in so much flavour and yet be kind to the head. A belter.....

Handbottle with huge thanks to Craig. Canít wait to throw down a handful of pints of it on cask. My most wanted beer for a while!
Deep chestnut brown with a small off-white head. Rich fruity aroma plum and raisin, with chocolate and biscuit. Dry, yet rich, dark malty flavour, with complex fruits and roasted notes. Firm hop bitterness with hints of grassy flavours too. Long lasting roasted and bitter finish. A world class masterpiece at this ABV.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cask conditioned at York Beer Fest í09. Chestnut with white head. BrewDog must be doing something right, this managed to be clear & bright when so many others were dull and clouded at this Festival. Dry and hoppy mild, not what we would call a mild, but there is a smokey nuttiness with dark roast qualities. Very good and for the ABV, amazing.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: NOV 9, 2010 Cask conditioned Handpump The Rake Borough Market. A black beer with a whitish head. Nicely hoppy in the nose with roasted malt character. Itís the same in the mouth. very much a new wave hoppy mild a la Dark Star Over The Moon, and whereas this hasnít quite got the excellent hoppiness of that beer it must be remembered that this is just 2.7% ABV. Itís a majestically flavoursome beer for its strength and would be so very easy to session on. Score 3.7
Subsequent rating @3.2% scored 3.9. Average becomes 3.8

Cask at the Canalhouse. This is an amazing beer for its strength. Itís fruity as youíd expect from a mild but with a lasting and profound dry bitter finish. It is neither watery nor weak in flavour; this is the ultimate session beer. They really are alchemists at Brewdog.
