ekoerper (599) - Iowa, USA - SEP 17, 2012
Aroma: toasty malts, a good dose of roast malts and coffee, really a mix of dry stout and mild in the nose. Pours black, almost opaque, but some light can get through around the edges and cast light reddish hues, off-white head dissipates somewhat quickly, spotty lacing. Flavor: nice and bready/toasty, mellow roast character, light bitterness, dry finish. Medium body, low-medium carbonation. Very easy drinking and enjoyable brew, nice!

blipp (7865) - San Diego, California, USA - NOV 15, 2015

RafeAU (629) - Los Angeles, California, USA - SEP 26, 2015
On tap at the brewery. Tasting paddle. this is one of the few non-homebrew milds I’ve had. Great roastiness but clean ferment, almost like a schwarzbier at first, but has some english yeast notes as it sits. Nitro is great for first minute or two then gets a bit flat.
