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

Cask at the Draymans Son, Ely. Very dark brown, opaque, fairly flat with some tan head. Liquorice and hazelnut coffee smell. Fairly mild but enticing. Sweet nutty taste, with more liquorice in the aftertaste. Full body although could do with a bit more carbonation. Really enjoyed this.

stravale (2723) - Near Carrick-on-Shannon, IRELAND - JAN 21, 2015
Bottle from Beers of Europe
Black, lots of ruby light through at edges of glass, moderate beige head quickly dissipates to nothing.
Aroma - Roasted malts, soft charcoal, slightly smoky, dark fruity malts, more fruity with the drinking, slight sour note
Taste - Roasted malt more mellow than the nose, dark sweet malts, soft fairly sweet dark malts, dark toffee, good flavour but spoiled by a slightly sour note probably related to the condition
Palate - Flat as a pancake, medium light body, fairly sweet, slight sourness, light bitter. Finish as main flavour with dark fruits, and dark fruity chocolate
Overall - Shame this is spoiled by poor condition and itís a touch sour. Did have some good flavours in there. Iím sure this is much better with a good bottle or on cask.

Bottle from Beers of Europe. (Note they donít sell this online, only in store) Dark Brown, no head- very disappointing was this. Aroma of caramel, peaty water, dark chocolate. Lacks carbonation, very flat, very thin, same flavours as the aroma with a touch of coffee. Would like to try it on cask.

Beese (2561) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 2, 2014
Cask at GBBF 2012. Poured black, with a dense beige head. Aroma of dark malt, roasted nuts and cocoa. Full, thick mouthfeel. Strong flavours of roasted malt, dates, figs and dark chocolate. Finish was really nicely balanced bitter bunt malt, prunes, molasses and treacle.

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 Iíve ever had.

StueyD (1564) - 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.

500ml bottle from Beers of Europe. Gusher! Dark, dark brown, enormous tan head. Very fruity nose, plums and Christmas cake. Light chocolate on the taste, sweet finish. Not bad.

Cask gravity at 4th Chappel Winter Beer Festival. Dark ruby brown, quite high in carbonattion for a cask mild, mild caramel chocolate aroma. Enjoyable.
