This 440 ml can was courtesy of Strykzone. Pours a very dark brown with a moderate tan head. Light chocolate in the nose. Medium body. Very light lacing. Flavor is roasted malts, chocolate and a hint of floral hops. Dry finish. Nice tasting and the low alcohol is a bonus.

Slabienkie puszkowe piwo. Z mleczna piana jak na czarnym guinnessie. Barwa podobna, bardzo czarne ale z niewielkim przejasnieniem brazu. Piwo bez gazu, szybko sie utlenia. Wodniste i malo wyraziste.

Bottle; poured a dark brown color with a light brown head. Aroma was light, with some roasted, caramel and nutty elements. Nutty flavor with some caramel notes; obviously not all that flavorful. Palate was enjoyable.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can and served in GI Imperial Pint Glass: Pours a medium brown with an initial creamy head and spotty lace. The aroma has notes of crystal, chocolate, nutty and a hint of Fuggles and Challenger hops. The taste is moderately sweet with chocolate and caramel overtones support by light handed hop bittering. The mouth feel despite the creamy head is thin and metallic. While my homebrew Dark Mild is better, this is also far better than the Cains Bitter I had before.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
14.9 ounce (440ml) can. Pours crystal clear, chestnut color; with a good sized ivory top of sudsy foam that soon reduces to a lasting top coat and ring.
Smell: Plenty of roasted malt with hints of baked bread and roasted nuts. Improves upon warming.
Taste: Mainly mild toasted malts. Some faint English hops towards the finish, with a mildly bitter finish.
Mouthfeel: Smooth, but too thin-bodied and watery. Near medium carbonation.
Overall: seems most suitable as a thirst quencher or accompaniment to a meal. Good beer to give newbies who think dark beers are "too strong".Also noteworthy as a low ABV beer with fine aroma and a substantial malt load.
