Cask at Briar Rose, Birmingham
Dark brown color with some red reflex on the edges, and beige creamy head. Besides the light notes of roasted malt, and the low bitterness, it has a light acidity, noticeable both in the aroma and flavor, possibly this beer is off.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Highgate ’Dark Mild’ in a 500ml brown bottle, best before Oct 2010, tatsed on one of my random beer evenings in Sept 2010.
3.4% ABV, poured into a UK pint sleeve glass. Deep ruby red, cream coloured head which gave some, but not much lacing.
The aroma was of malt molasses and dark chocolate hints.
The flavours in the taste were again chocolate, molasses and some liquorice added for good measure.
fairly thin body wise, which let it down somewhat.
OK, but not one of the better Dark Milds.

UPDATED: SEP 3, 2013 Bottle in October 2010, Deep mahogany body, no head. Aroma of chocolate, coffee, nuts, weak hop bite, caramel, toffee and Kola Nut. Good balance between sweetness and bitterness. Soft mouthfeel, a little oily. Gentle carbonation. Slightly dry finish. A decent mild, ticks all the boxes, but doesn’t exactly blow you away.

0.5 l bottle. Reddish brown color. Sweetish aroma with raisins, toffee and nuts. Dryer flavor with toffee, raisins, hint of chocolate, salty minerals and hint of smoke. Watery palate. Disappointing watery taste after promising aroma.
