Coffee, some hops and some roast on the aroma. Dark read to black colour with a light brown head that disappears quickly. Medium sweet with a nice mild bitterness. Light to medium body, carbonation is not to fizzy. Overall a good ale with a nice coffee flavor.

Bottle picked up by dad from Geltsdale Brewery, cheers dad. Consumed at home Wednesday 21.08.13 Dark chestnut brown beer, off-white head. In terms of taste it is nutty, a touch watery in fact it has to be said this is very true to the style. It’s fine but hardly exciting, low bitterness, some caramel, difficult to knock it as it does exactly what it should do, mmhhhh.... maybe its a style I’ve left behind. A6 A4 T6 P3 Ov12 3.1

tfredvik (1031) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUN 27, 2013
Very dark copper body with a smallish, short-lived, light-brown head. Quite strong malty aroma with lovely roasted notes, dark caramel, coffee and liquorice, but also some dark fruits and berries in the back. Light sweet taste with a light bitterness in the finish, which is a bit short. The flavours are as roasted and malty as the aroma, but again I get these delicate fruity hints that lifts this brew to a higher level. Rather thin mouthfeel with a dry and smooth texture and soft carbonation. A lovely beer, and I thought I didn’t like milds!
[50 cl bottle, enjoyed 7 months before BB date, from Meny Alna, Oslo]

larsga (6120) - Oslo, NORWAY - APR 28, 2013
Medium dark beige head. Clear deep dark reddish body. Roasty earthy aroma with toffee and bread notes. Dry-sweet roasty chocolatey earthy taste with grainy strawy notes. Mid-to-light body. Mild, mealy mouthfeel. Dryish mealy resiny chocolatey aftertaste with minty dusty roasted grain notes. Lingering smoky notes. Really nice, and highly drinkable. Clean and vivid. (0.5l bottle, Meny Strømmen Storsenter.)
