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.

500ml can from The Beer Cellar. Super black in colour with a big frothy head. Roast malt aroma with a thin mouthfeel. Big flavour for a small alcohol content.

16oz can thanks to devman! Clear brown. Smaller creamy coffee head. Nose is fruit juice, cherry juice box, cinnamon perhaps. Taste is watery, metallic, apple skins, mild coffee. Pretty decent creaminess as it warms. Lactic dairy character, mild chocolate milk. Not so bad.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 15/20
Iíve been working my way through a sixer of cans and havenít regretted the purchase in the least. The principal character here is how watery and thin the body is, even for style, but thatís overcome by quality of flavor. Nose is sweet with dark roast and a little chocolate, taste much the same with a strain of nuts. Pours deep brown-black with a creamy, dense light brown head. Body, despite the thinness, is ultra-smooth and nearly as creamy as a widgeted nitro offering (itís not). This is incredibly repeatable, easy-going without childishness.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark brown pour, black in the glass. The head is a foamy beige ring for the most part. The aroma is chewy toffee, mild roast, slightly oxidized, and a hint of treacle. The flavor is slightly burnt toffee, with a trace of hops and an abrupt, balanced finish. Light yet full on the palate, with very soft carbonation, and a clean back end. Really enjoyed this one.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Black Color, Creamy Head with Long Retention, Good Lacing. Light Chocolate, toasted, light bitter, creamy malt finish. My guess that 3.2% ABV means Mild Ale classification, otherwise Iíd put it in Stout style since it resembles Guinness or Murphyís. Good.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours like black coffee with a mild whiff of baked fruitcake, coffee and mocha. The head is very dense and creamy lingering with great length. Full nectar, soft and creamy, blunted flavors leaving behind a bitter wasteland on my tongue. This beer is boderline flavorless with a big rich malt backbone.
