A luscious dark mild full of malt with chocolate undertones and light hopping. A step back in time to days when England was the engine room of the empire and mild was the most popular drink for the working class.

Cask at GBBF 2012. Poured a dark brown, with a scummy off white head. Aroma of dark fruit, roasted malt and light smoke. Fairly light mouthfeel. Coffee and dark chocolate flavours, with some berries. Finish was ash, earth and brown sugar.

Bottle. My first from this brewery. Small head with a sulphuric taste dominating. Acidic and not easy to drink. Try to ignore this one unless it is bottled better.

Thin and watery on the palate and to taste. Overall just weak, watery and bordering on unpleasant.

500ml bottle thanks to a colleague. Given the fact itís been hanging around in my fridge for ages, itís held up ok. Touch of vinegar perhaps but some dark malts. Ok dark mild, nothing too exciting.

Idiosynkrasie (6311) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - MAY 17, 2013
500ml bottle. Clear brown colour with average to huge, firm, frothy, half-way lasting, moderately lacing, beige head. Malty aroma with a fruity touch of red berries, dry overtones of fruit parings, cautious hints of hazelnut. Taste is minimally sweet malty, hints of red berries with a dry touch fruit parings, some hazelnut; carbonation seems to strengthen the dry notes. Mild, too mild.

Ethereal (2421) - Los Angeles, California, USA - AUG 9, 2011
500ml bottle from Drink of Fulham, drunk at home, 6th Dec 2010, while listening to the Ashes on TMS! Close to black, deep ruby brown with a small beige head that doesnít last long. Awesome taste with lovely burnt notes and lots of nuttiness. Really demands you concentrate on it. Feels like at the start of the sip but then fills out. Nose has cocoa and roasted malt. A really good mild.
