not really diggin this brew from JK and thatís not j/k! overly carbonated and way too sweet. pour this one ULTRA slow or youíll get nothing but foam. this one definitely needs a lot of re-work or retire it.

3.6 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
Sweet malts with a touch of oak comprise the aroma. Dark cloudy brown pour with a quickly disisapating white head which forms a lasting ring. Taste is lightly sweet. Sweet malts, hints of chocolate, subtle sourness and a pleasing nutty finish combined with a slight hoppy aftertaste. Mouthfeel and carbonation are both medium. Overall, this is a winner compared to the only other mild ale Iíve ever had. Cains Dark Mild had a pleasing aroma but not much taste. This mild has plenty of taste to spare. Good work Jester King.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On draft at GABF. Pours a hazy brown with an off-white head. Nose is some light biscuity malt, some earth, some wood, and some light vanilla and maybe a hint of unsweet cocoa. Flavor is similar some almost biscuity malt, light wood, light cocoa, some earth, and some dryness in the finish. If this is their core beer, then this is a brewery I can get into.

2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
Caramel malt and yeast aroma. Pours a very dark amber with minimal head. Very light bodied. Woody, slight coffee and a little bit of toffee. A very light hoppy finish and some earthiness. Really too light to be good but not bad enough to pour out.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
750ml bottle from West Lakeview Liquors. Pours a clear, deep, ruby-brown colored body with a finger-width, frothy, beige head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing. Aroma is oaky with some earth, berry fruits, grain, touches of caramel and chocolate, and a hint of roast. Flavor is similar. Pretty oaky with some grainy, very lightly sweetened caramels and hints of chocolate. Some berry fruits, touches of nuts, and a very light roast note towards the end. Finishes clean, woody, and dry with a very light bitterness. Lengthy aftertaste following a light body and a moderate carbonation. Overall, I was a bit nervous after reading about the gushers in some of the other reviews, but this bottle wasnít over-carbonated at all...so it must be a newer batch. This was a decent mild with a few nice things going on, especially the slight chocolate note towards the end, but thereís a bit too much dry wood on this for me. Not bad though.
