A smooth dark mild. Chocolate malt gives plenty of flavour and aroma which belies its strength.

Alengrin (2436) - BELGIUM - AUG 19, 2014
Delightfully old-fashioned dark mild ale with caramelly and bit smoky aroma, soft rounded taste with some diacetyl, fruity, lightly hop bitter finish. More bitter than usual for this style and quite enjoyable, though unambitious as can be expected from a mild.

Cask @ Worsley Old Hall, Manchester. Deep amber-red with a thick frothy head. The aroma is somewhat neutral but there’s a lingering chocolate taste in the palate.

minutemat (1880) - Ford, Shropshire, ENGLAND - NOV 14, 2013
Cask at The Ragleith Arms, Little Stretton. Pint accompanying a meal with my future Belgian father-in-law. He quite liked it. I found it fairly malty, with a smooth texture but altogether rather boring. Although I was trying to impress him with English beers on this trip, and this I felt didn’t cut the mustard. Another day, another pub I may take a shine to this beer.

HogTownHarry (6129) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - AUG 30, 2013
August 30, 2013 - hand-pull cask at Southampton Arms. Deep and clear mahogany with a small frothy white/off-white head. Light toast/roast dry aroma, simple, a bit fruity. Taste is fruitier - still dry, zero alcohol. Light and slightly astringent, still and quick-finishing. Simple.

TimE (3358) - Tokyo, JAPAN - AUG 7, 2013
Dark brown color. Very nutty chocolatey nose. Smooth mouth that is graced by pecans, coffee and chocolate. Very malty and light but at every step shows great depth. Subtle lingering pecan pie finish. Excellent. ,
