Our Black Cherry Mild is stirring emotions amongst those who enjoy a traditional dark mild. Subtle additions of real black cherries and Amarillo hops provide a truly rich and wonderful taste experience.

KansaiBeerLvrs (3558) - Kyoto, JAPAN - AUG 21, 2015
Kissingate black cherry mild 4.2% cask at the GBBF. It’s a deep black with a ruby highlights. Malty maple syrup and cherry aroma. Medium bodied with a smooth mouthfeel. The taste is molasses and cherry. Kind of off-puttingly artificial. Disappointing.

stravale (2567) - Near Carrick-on-Shannon, IRELAND - NOV 8, 2014
Cask @ The Angel, Manchester [311014]
Black, ruby edges, dense beige head
Aroma - soft mellow roast, dab of cocoa, soft light coffee, getting the cherry
Taste - soft roast, chocolate, soft coffee, lot of black cherry flavour here but I don’t really like this
Palate - Medium body, smooth texture. Finish of soft choc, touch of dry roast
Overall - The addition of cherries ruins it for me and they are too prominent. Could only have a few sips.

Gravity at GBBF 2014. Poured a very dark ruby, with a thin off-white head. Aroma of big molasses, boiled sweets and ginger. Grainy flavours, some brown bread and sweet caramel. Finish was malty, with some toffee and cherry.

Benzai (11323) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - AUG 18, 2014
Sampled @ GBBF. Very dark brown color, small off-white head. Smell and taste malts, roasted malts, lightly fruity, a bit sweet-bitter, a touch of red fruits and twigs as well as some caramel. Not very well mixed together. Don’t like it.

mR_fr0g (6489) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 14, 2014
Cask gravity at the 2014 GBBF. Opaque dark caramel coloured pour with a lasting greyish head. Aroma is burnt wood, campfire, some berry fruit. Flavour is berry, black forest fruits, earthy roast. Nutty malts and hedgerow berry’s linger. Palate is medium light and smooth. Very sessionable.

AdiBeer (2399) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 9, 2014
Aroma: dark cherries indeed, heavy malts. Appearance: dark brown, frothy small head. Taste: medium sweet and some bitters. Palate: some roasted flavours appear, quite bitter towards the end. Overall: this is not at all to my taste. Pint at the GBBF13, London.
