Dark mild describes this one well, it pours quite dark but yet a lightness too, but tastes light for the way it appears, it has a taste medium bitterness and little bit of sweetness almost, good offering for a great brewery

Sample at CCB. Light brown/dark red pour with slim off white head. Caramel, toast and nutty aroma. Med body with coffee, chocolate and nuts. Very flavorful for a mild. Roasty finish with more chocolate and coffee.

15 cl test på Cigar City Brewing, Tampa, Florida. Nötighet och fruktighet, så kan jag väl bäst beskriva detta öl, som i all sin tämliga anonymitet ändå är helt okey.

sort of a weak brown ale, easily sessionable. very clean on the palate, though there was a odd metallic zing between the sip and the swallow. but otherwise, pretty good.

Slightly hazy brown color. Aroma is light, has some roasted malt, a hint of bitterness and peanuts. Flavor is slightly bitter, toast, malts and a hint of dark fruit like fig and plum. Slightly odd finish but still tasty.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.
