Gravity at Bardfest 2015. Pours deep brown with a frothy cream head. Nice coffee aroma. The taste is very pleasant too. Lots of coffee. Pretty simple and quite thin, but very easy drinking.

Keighley Beer Festival 2014. Dark with a reddish-brown glow and a thin head. Despite its low strength it feels full-bodied with plenty of roasted malt in both aroma and taste and a subdued but lingering aftertaste.

berkshirejohn (5395) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - OCT 21, 2009
Cask at the Live and Let Live, Cambridge. Tar brown in colour with a loose beige head and a striking cherry red colour when held to the light; aroma of roasted malt with smoke and tar mingling; dry in the mouth with a solid chocolate malt body and a light peppery bitterness; then a touch of caramel to finish. Excellent - if only all milds were as good as this.
