3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
From cask @ The Diamond, Londonderry. Hmm.. Just had this yesterday, and this along with all the others I’ve had, just suddenly disappeared from my notes. Means I have to drink MORE beers.. Don’t you just hate it when that happens! Anyhow, it does initially look like a nitro infused one this. It’s pretty deep and dark, bronze black I’d call it and on the top a both creamy and dense beige head that lacing elegantly down the sides of the glass. It smells nice. A good chocolate milky thing going on, there’s a little bit of roastiness. Sweet marzipan chocolate and some tones of coffee. Nice stuff. Tastes quite good also. More of that milk chocolate thing found in the aroma. It’s dark malty and also a little fruity. Mild smooth casky texture with a little bit of prickling bubbles. Quite lightdrinkable actually and somewhat good even! 07.06.2016 AND 06.06.2016

Cask. Aroma of roasted malts with caramel notes. Pours dark with definite ruby tints. Tan top and strong lacing. Flavours of cookie dough and light fruits with a slightly resinous finish. Flat and one cannot call a 3.8% mild strong mild as there are 6%s out there.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Cask at Spoons. It pours deep ruby - brown with a medium beige head. The aroma is general sweet malty vibe, toasted malt loaf, dried fruits and cherry cola. The taste is pretty weak....toasty, roasted malts, malt loaf, cola, dark fruit and earth with a short, dry finish. Light body and soft carbonation. No real depth at all. Not offensive per say, just pretty boring...

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Cask at The Green Dragon, Leek (JDW) A deep brown to black colour with a medium tan head. Aroma of red berries, fruit loaf, some spice, subtle roasted malts and a hint of marzipan. Taste of raisin, prune, red berries, bready malts and spicy hops. Light bodied and a slick texture. A dry, fruity finish. For a 3.8% mild, it’s got decent body and flavour. Highly recommended.
