A premium dark mild. Roast and chocolate malts combine to give a full bodied, complex character to this rich and robust ale.

Mjp12 (1264) - York, North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 27, 2016
Rather sweet and malty aroma and flavour, and as other beers from this pub/ brewery chain has had, a rather unpleasant finish

theprof (377) - Nottingham, Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - JAN 14, 2016
Tap. Pours reddish chestnut rather than black. Aroma has chocolate but something else that has kipper in it. Tastes sweet almost bubble gum. This is strongest n the finish. An interesting mild. Worth a second visit.

Hippoman (646) - Durham, ENGLAND - JAN 11, 2016
500ml Bottle from Lidl, Langley Moor, Durham. Dark reddish brown with a large but loose and diminishing, frothy, tan head. Thereís dark malts and cocoa in an unassuming aroma. The taste is reasonably sweet and very rich with chocolate brownie, toffee and doughy flavours on a thick, smooth palate. Itís marred however by a plasticy, chemical aftertaste that means itís not one Iíll want to revisit.

Cunningham (6557) - Halden, NORWAY - DEC 2, 2015
Dark brown color with a thick beige head. Bready and some chocolate in the aroma. Medium (-) body and a soft carbonation. Tad sweet and a moderate bitterness. Oily texture. Chocolate, mild roast and bready flavor. Decent mild ale.

Nocturne (1677) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - NOV 26, 2015
Cask at Leeds Brewery Tap. Chestnut brown. Off-white foam. Sweet malty taste. Nutty, red fruits, hint of coffee. Good flavours and a decent body. I think the higher ABV over many other milds helps this one significantly.
