UPDATED: NOV 16, 2011 Draft at World of Beer. Pours a muddy brown with a mid sized beige head. Aroma has roasted malt, coffee, caramel, and dried fruit notes. Flavor is fairly mild and sweet with some mild bitterness in the finish and lingering tobacco notes.

otakuden (1783) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - OCT 28, 2011
Appearance: deep dark plums and grapes. Smooth and creamy khaki head with pomace inclinations. Fades with pockets of bubbles while lace marks the sides of my glass.
Nose: roasted coffee beans. Iced coffee. Brittle dry cacao crumbles and powder. Fall leaves and twigs signify the changing of seasons. Raisins and dried prunes. Rye seeds and rye bread crust.
Palate: chocolate powdered truffles of the dark cacao variety. Whispers of cinnamon. Pumpernickel sticks and pumpernickel crust dry, crunchy, and toasty. Treacle. Raisins. Dried coffee along edges and in the finish. Plum and grape skins carry the essence of the fruit along with dry tannic notes.
Final Thoughts: a fantastic dark mild that would feel right at home in merry ol England. Low abv, lots of flavor, and immense quaffability. Belly up, buy a round, and chat it up with your mates long into the night.

HonkeyBra (3420) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - OCT 10, 2011
Sampled at GABF 2011. Dark hazy brown pour with a tan head. Aroma of caramel, chocolate, toffee. Lots of mild bitterness in the aroma. Flavor is nearly unbeatable for a mile. Lots of caramel, toffee, some nuts. It nearly tastes like a turtle (the candy, not the animal. I had turtles as a kid and am still not comfortable eating them). Very dry and smooth. This is a beer Id love to just drink for a while. Medium bodied, typical carbonation, so its very easy to drink. I liked this one.

Review from notes at Cigar Citys taproom on 9/9/11 for Firkin Friday. Draft poured into a 4 oz. sampler glass. Appearance: Poured a deep caramel brown with yellow highlights. Nice lacing. Smell: Sweet malt with English hops. Taste: Grassy up front followed by light hops in the middle before ending with roasted malt and a touch of nuttiness. Dry, bitter aftertaste. Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied with a nice amount of carbonation. Drinkability: Excellent drinkability. You could drink several. Goes down smooth. Overall: Good beer overall. Nice to see CCB putting out a mild ale. Definitely worth a shot.

burg326 (3762) - Florida, USA - SEP 4, 2011
UPDATED: SEP 6, 2011 Had on draft, poured a hazy dark brown, with aromas of raosted malts, molasses, and a twinge of spicy hops. Taste was choclate, malt, and a touch of earthness. Decent mild brew for an everyday drinker.

Tap from the brewery brought up by Wilkes and Lynn. Big roasty malt and nuts in the aroma. Toasted grains, caramel, cereal, and tea in the taste. Coffee type bitter through the finish. Faint carbonation and slick thin palate.
