An old style mild, strong but carefully hopped to allow the malts to flourish. Liquorice hints balance the lasting nutty finish.

StueyD (1066) - Heacham, Norfolk, ENGLAND - MAR 21, 2014
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. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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.

foxo82 (649) - Tamworth (via Leicester), Staffordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 24, 2012
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.

RichardW (1371) - Carlisle, Cumbria, ENGLAND - JUN 9, 2012
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.
