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.

The_Osprey (2912) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 13, 2013
From cask at GBBF. Opaque black, big foamy head. Smells impressively of cherry and black forest gateau. The smell is really, really appetising actually. Good stuff. ……. Oh well, the taste doesn’t live up to the smell. Muted cherry, water. Body is very thin. So much promise, but a little disappointing in the end. This beer is scoring above average purely based on the smell.

downender (6759) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - SEP 26, 2012
Cask-conditioned at the Minehead Beer Festival, 8/09/2012. Dark brown with a decent, off-whit head. Aroma of dark fruits, with a hint of coffee and demerara sugar. Flavour had more fruit, with some roastiness and gently bitter finish. Good.

imdownthepub (11196) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 9, 2012
Cask conditioned at Minehead Beer Fest ’12. Black with tan head. Rich fruity beer, don’t think I would have picked out Black Cherry myself, but there is a tartness and a sort of roasted pip note along with a deepish malt. Really fairly pleasant and one of the first beers to go at the Festival.

maeib (8750) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - JUN 4, 2012
Cask conditioned handpump Queens Arms Brighton 22/05/12. A black beer which poured virtually headless. There is a definite vinegar note beneath the fruity flavours. Dark malts give a dry note. The acetic note though completely spoils this.

BeerViking (2985) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 11, 2012
Gravity at the Kingston beer festival. Dark red brown with a fast vanishing tan head, chocolate and a faintly musty cherry aroma reminiscent of kriek. Malt and chocolate in the mouth, with a slight sour tang and hints of dark sugar in the finish. Excellent, bar a faintly cloying aftertaste.

Cask at Woking Festival 2011. Pours a black colour with a thin tan head. The aroma is all cherry with plenty of malt and a hint of chocolate. The taste again is all cherry, with a sweet finish.
