Cask@OHaras, Tampere. Rubyish black colour with a small head. Aroma is ripe dark fruits, mild toffee, zest and mild floral notes. Flavour is similar, but the hops are rather strong. Light Cascadian Dark Ale? Tasty.

26th October 2010.
Spoons Fest! Clear dark brown beer with a big creamy tan head. Low carbonation softish palate, a little dry. Mild dark malt with a little cream. An undertone of very mild smoke. Some sweet fruit makes a brief appearance before quickly turning alarmingly bitter through the semi dry finish. A bitter aftertaste that lingered for a good 20 mins. Not bad but I don’t understand why so many hold this in high regard. The malt side is pleasant but the hop side is way too aggressive. Not sure it is in Brewdogs nature to brew a Mild, like asking Wayne Rooney to take a pay cut!

harrisoni (13286) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - MAY 30, 2008
Cask gravity at Reading BF 2008. Very dark brown, bubbly beige head. Some hops on aroma. Some grainy choc and cereal. It’s not a bad little mild, bit grainy, but fine. Bit smokey, some hop on finish. Didn’t think it matched up to all the hype it had been getting.

Dark nutty brown color, creamy brownish head. Nutty caramelly nose. Light to medium bodied. Light toasted malty flavor, some caramel, light hops. Easy going, light beer but with lots of flavor. Excellent session beer.

Christian (11028) - Odense, DENMARK - SEP 26, 2009
Handbottle with huge thanks to Craig. Can’t 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.

Leighton (10540) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 21, 2010
UPDATED: FEB 28, 2012 Cask at Cleveland Arms. Pours a dark brown, opaque, with a thin, off-white head. Strong dark malt aroma with roast, chocolate, light hops. Flavor has a modest sweetness, with strong, roasty malt character. Some char and tobacco. Light bodied with soft carbonation. Leaves heavy lacing. Dry roast finish, which lingers. Excellent beer, especially given the low ABV.

imdownthepub (10021) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 18, 2009
Cask conditioned at York Beer Fest ’09. 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.
