Cask; Regular. Also available bottle conditioned.
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.

Gentle_Ben (25) - Rutland, ENGLAND - DEC 30, 2015
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.

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 fiddlerís 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.

ianwelby (870) - SCOTLAND - MAR 6, 2015
Clear, dark ruby beer with a reasonable, bubbly beige head. Aroma is of fruit and chocolate and the flavour has some of that as well though itís tempered by some lighter, tangy fruit flavours (some apple in there, maybe, as well as a touch of citrus) to balance it out. You could very easily session this at that strength as itís really quite tasty.
