Near black with smooth lasting head. Very little on the aroma side, taste is a little bland, but body is pretty solid. Best of a very few options.

Fin (7278) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 8, 2012
Keg at a pub (in fact a couple of pubs in Bacup, Lancashire) whilst following the famous Bacup Coco-Nutters around for the pubs of this town for the day Easter Saturday 07.04.12 Soft in the mouth with a light creaminiess, touch nutty, dark brown in colour, easy drinking and despite not being anything special at £1.80 a pint a bargain!

sm89walt (1751) - Northern Beaches, Sydney, AUSTRALIA - APR 24, 2011
Keg. A very dark brown beer with lighter edging and a large, dense & creamy lasting beige head leaving a uniform lace throughout. Not a huge aroma, mild creamy choc & roasty malts. Similar on the palate, quite milky & creamy, soft roast flavours with a short and smooth finish. Soft, typical keg smooth aroma, not as watery as some, light to medium body. Not bad for £2/pint in an old folks’ social club (don’t ask).

Keg, The ’Grand’ Hotel, Llandudno (Manns Chesnut Dark Mild, 3.4% ABV). Mahogany with ruby edges and a buff cream nitro layer. OK aroma featuring distant coffee, roast, leaves. Dabs of interest; dry roasted nuts, one granule of instant coffee in a pint of milk. I’ve had worse.
