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.

750 ml bottle (notes). Pours a dark chestnut brown color with a small beige head. The aroma and flavor had some cocoa, earthy notes, mild funk, and some background light fruit character. Not bad for a 3.3 % beer, but not much to get excited about either.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
From the November 2013 3R6P tasting. +++ Sampled from a 750 ml brown bottle this beer poured a very dark brown color - almost black - with a huge fluffy tan head that lingered and left good lacing. The aroma was Dr Pepper, fig and cola. The flavor was dryish, nutty, malty and bitter with a touch of wood and a bit of toasty malts. Medium length, dry, bitter, malty and nutty finish. Medium body. Meh.

Had this at Where The Wild Beers Are. Pours a hazy brown with a thin white to beige head. Fuzzy musk and paper, a bit of cocoa. Chewy body with cocoa, warm paper and brownies. Cocoa, chocolate, light acid. Gentle funk moves into a thick roast component, funk with paper and cocoa on the finish.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A - Wow. A slow gentle pour generates 4 fingers of light tan head. A hazy dark chestnut colored body.
S - Cocoa and coffee, toasted wheat bread crust, oak, vanilla, and caramel.
T - Follows the nose, dark cocoa, roasted coffee beans, dried oats, caramel rides underneath. Some acidity around the edges. Bitter dark cocoa holds strong and becomes the dominate flavor when warm. Finishes dry.
M - Active carbonation. The carbonation really calms down as the beer sets creating a light to medium creamy body.
Loads of bold flavors packed into this 3.30 ABV! This is my kind of session beer. The cocoa and oats were the main flavors and melded together very well.

750ml from Charleston Beer Exchange, Charleston. These absurd JK labels remind me of old issues of 2000AD, and this cat looks like a Judge Dredd villain or something. Anyways, massive kudos to the brewers on the example of the beer as well as the beer itself. Nice chestnut brown pour with a silky, fairly sizable head to the brew. Nice dark bread in the nose, along with dry hops and spice. Nice mouthfeel, full but with a light carbonation and an interesting tang. Some soft cocoa and vanilla in there, but very mild additions to the overall earthy flavors. Wish there were loads more beers like this out there.

Hazy dark brown pour with a thin cream head. Earthy woody slightly sour aroma with hints of chocolate. Taste is wood, some funk, earthy, and baking cocoa. Little astringent. Enjoyable.
