A refreshing well balanced dark mild, whose chocolate and fruity flavours compliment its roasted long bitter finish. Primed using a combination of rich dark sugars, this beer is a taste sensation.

jjsint (2181) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - MAR 12, 2016
Gravity cask at the 2016 Leicester Beer Festival. Dark brown with only a suggestion of head. Small amount of visible carbonation. Red berry, hazelnut and cola in the aroma. Nice but predictable. Taste is better: sweet but with a gentle roasted malt quality. Sweet Ovaltine finish. Fuller body than most milds. Nice.

Classic mild. Lots of malty flavours but as per all Grainstore beers no hops to speak of. Relatively pleasant as a session beer but too thin for the style and I would not go out of my way to drink this again.

Bottle thanks to Benzai - Pours dark brown. Nose/taste of cocoa, dark sugar and touch of dry liquid smoke - lighter bodied. Pretty good for the style.

niquillis (2344) - Stoke on Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 2, 2015
Cask at Grainstore Brewery, Oakham. Pours dark ruby with light tan head. Initial sour, then smokiness, then thin wishy wash. More dry smoke, some dark fruit. Good then, average, then good. In and out like a fiddler’s elbow.

Bottle. Dark ruby beer with foam head and light fizzy carbonation. Nose is chocolate, iron, yeast, smoke, nuts, earth. Taste is earthy, hay, chocolate with a tangy, smokey finish. palate is a little watery but otherwise pleasant. A simple but nice beer.

Clear brilliant dark reddish brown colour, dissipating white head. Malty aroma, lots of caramel. Sweet malty flavour, caramel. Quite thin. Finish caramel.
