Cask, Newark Fest 09. Near black with a small off-white head. Aromas are earthy, light roast coffee with some molasses. Floral with hints of metal and berries. Lightly smoky. Flavours are sweet weetabix malts with coffee and liquorish. Nutty and Spritzy, fresh and dry on the finish.

Alphadelic (1751) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUN 13, 2009
Smoky chocolate and coffee. Very light and milky finish. Some hoppage? Certainly not a huge amount but for its depth te drinkability is superb.

evergreen0199 (2022) - Northwood, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 1, 2009
Fresh at the brewery in Sussex. Dark brown beer with a roasty aroma. Slight hoppiness in the taste, quite drinkable even though I donít usually go for milds.

sm89walt (1758) - Northern Beaches, Sydney, AUSTRALIA - MAY 29, 2009
Cask - The Butcherís Arms, Herne. A dark brown beer with a red hue, a fine, bubbly white head that lasted well and left a decent lacing. Initial aromas consist of some fruitiness leading to notes of tobacco and a roastiness. More of the same in the flavours: fruit; roasted malt; tobacco, finishing with a crisp and clean, lasting smokey bitterness. Lovely.

Cask in the rake. Alround rating: A decent mild, good malt character, but i suppose its in his nature to add hops to things and heís gone a bit much and added too much bittering hop for the finish. Still a nice beer.

Cask (handpump) at the Sportsman, Amberley, West Sussex. Almost black with a thin tan head. Quite roasty. Unlike Dark Starís regular mild (Over The Moon) this has no significant hop presence. As such it is rather more traditional in style, although probably has a little too much creamy chocolate for purists. Fine by me though. Very drinkable.
