3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Beers of Europe via my kids for Fathers Day :-) Poured a clear dark brown with a thin broken off white head. The aroma is roasted malt, nutty hop and a little dark chocolate. The flavour is medium bitter, light sweet with a rich malt, burnt treacle nutty, red berry fruit palate and long smoky bitter finish. Medium bodied with soft carbonation. Lots going on in here. Probably one of the best milds I’ve ever had.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
A dark cola brown coloured beer with a quickly dissipating head. A rich burnt malt aroma, molasses, treacle and liquorice. Full bodied mouthfeel. A bittersweet taste of burnt malt, all the elements come through from the aroma, giving a rich full flavoured taste that lingers well after to final swig!
Tasted at the 3rd. Fakenham Beer Festival.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Rewelacyjne ciemne czarne piwo z drozdzami. Piana kremowa, spora i trwala. W smaku lekko slodkawe, jak pudding, gorzka czekolada. Finisz troche gozkawy i wytrawny. Bardzo tresciwe mild Ale, chyba jedno z lepszych jakie kosztowalem. Ladna etykieta, ale najwazniejsze ze piwo super smakowalo i zrobilo na mnie bardzo dobre wrazenie. Polecam.

2.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle from beersofeurope.co.uk. Bottle conditioned. Pours black, decent head for a bottled beer. Aroma is delicious: malt, Marmite, peanut butter, slightly smoked. Tastes mildly bitter, malt, coffee, woody but the overwhelming aftertaste is smokey but in an unpleasant way - like an old snooker hall - which spoilt it for me.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Soapy fruity blackberry aroma which initially leads to a very smoky woody taste. This settles down midway to a fine dry fruitiness with good strong roast notes. The alcohol becomes quite noticeable late on with plenty of warmth in the finish. Good strong mild.
