The exception that proves the rule. Roasty milds have never really been my thing; I usually find them too thin and acerbic. This however was the exception having the roast barley aroma and flavour of a stout combined with the sweetness and body of an old ale. Very drinkable and I can well understand how this won Champion Beer of Britain in 2011.

BlackHaddock (3183) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - FEB 27, 2014
Hand-pulled pint in The Nags Head, Walthamstow Village on 4th Feb 2014. Black body with a red hue in a bright light, on top a creamy, beige head. Roasted/toasted malt nose, with a semi-sweet hint. The sweetness within the aroma comes alive a little more in the taste giving the beer a mild caramel feel to it’s maltiness. Slight bitterness towards the finish leaving you wanting more. Good depth of flavours, good depth of body and overall a good Mild.

Aroma: some caramel and roasted malts, hints of bread. Appearance: dark clear brown, no head. Taste: light sweet. Palate: average-long dry-ish finish, a bit watery, bitters coming up, but not too intense. Overall: not bad for a Mild, quite a complex palate. Pint at Newman Street Tavern, London.
