Cask; Regular. Part of the Classic Range.
A rich dark mild with bags of character from the lavish use of chocolate malt.

Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - SEP 1, 2012
On cask at The Devonshire Arms. Pours a very dark brown colour with a thin white head. Aroma of chocolate, coffee and caramel. Similar flavours with mild carbonation and an oily mouth-feel. Nice and dry to finish.

A roasty rather than a caramely mild with adequate bitterness. Quite pleasant if you like that kind of thing. Personally I think the burnt flavour is overpowering in such a low gravity beer and would go for caramel every time. I don’t know about anybody else, but I find Milton’s pump clips less than helpful. If the landlord’s out and the 18-year old barmaid hasn’t a clue about beer then you’re floundering as to what you’ll get once you part with your hard earned cash. It surely wouldn’t hurt to add ’Mild’ or ’Bitter’ etc. where appropriate would it?

This is one berry nice beer It's has a good nose and smokey after taste. Dark in colour but still clear enough to see through There is no head but a thin rim of white around the edge ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

tombyars (1453) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - FEB 12, 2012
Tasted this at the Troon Beer Festival in October 2009. Cask, handpump dispense. Dark ruby black in colour with a open buff head. Mocha coffee notes in the strong aroma. Thin oily mouthfeel and poor lacing. Dark malts give an initial burnt toast note which fades to give sweet juicy raisin fruit. Short note of dusty, earthy hops but really short lived. Sweetness returns to give a malty fruity finish with dry cocoa powder evident. An excellent session mild.

[Gravity cask at Chippenham Beer Festival] Brown with a negligible head & a light sparkle. A bit roasty, a bit malty, a bit chewy, a bit of port, a bit of gravy. Definitely dry though. OK.

Cask at the Pembury. Had this as a side by side with the Mammon. Pours a cola colour, with a small beige head. Aromas of light roasted malt and toffee. Taste mostly sweet toffee and light roasted malt, with a touch of orange rind and chocolate.

imdownthepub (11146) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 27, 2010
Cask conditioned at The Turf Tavern, Oxford. Chestnut with white head. Rich, malty, fruity mild, dark chocolate notes with a fireside, coal dust hint. A plummy fruitiness emerges. Probably a little too much going on for a mild but very pleasant in it’s own right.
