Scipio (751) - Palatine, Illinois, USA - FEB 18, 2013
Pours a very dark brown, almost black, with a medium beige head. Aroma is malty, has mostly chocolate, some caramel, along with raisin notes. Upon tasting, I still get a dominant chocolate flavor as well as the caramel. I also get some fruity tartness as well. I believe apple and a little bit of cherry. It is a little sweet. The aftertaste is mostly those fruity impressions. Light to medium in body, much more than you would expect for such a light beer. More thin texture. This is balance well. There is a lot more here than I would expect for something this week. Its definitely worth a try.

Grzesiek79 (3398) - Radom, POLAND - FEB 16, 2013
Smaczne mild Ale. Na uwagę zasługuje nietypowa butelka jak na rynek brytyjski. Ciemne piwo z krwistymi odcieniami, ze średnią pianką ale trwałą. Wspaniale się piło. Absolutnie dobre Mild

RyanE (145) - British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 6, 2013
Black pour with minimal head. Ruby red glimmers in the light. Dark roast coffee nose. Full body for a low alcohol brew. Nice bitterness from the roasted malt. Very easy drinking dark beer.

Jado (624) - Camp Hill, AUSTRALIA - NOV 11, 2012
Pours a solid black topped by a small but lasting tan head. Aromas of milk chocolate dominate. Taste shows some black coffee overlaying the chocolate. There’s a very light touch of smoke on the end. Smooth and satisfying.

Weefannybaws (123) - Barrhead, SCOTLAND - NOV 2, 2012
Bottle from Morrison’s Supermarket. Lovely dark ale. Malty chocolate nose, which matches the initial taste. Lingering malt aftertaste. Low alcohol, but plenty of flavour.

flying_pig (1074) - SCOTLAND - OCT 29, 2012
Bottle (500ml from Morrisons):
Caramel and some toffee on the nose along with some earthy hops and a touch of roasted malts. There is some chocolate and a light spice aroma that is quite well-balanced.
Dark brown colour that borders on black and has a light, tan coloured head about half an inch tall that reduces to about half a centimetre tall after a couple of moments.
Roasted malt flavour to begin, along with some earthy hops and toffee. There is a bit of caramel from the nose as well as some chocolate and light, fruity flavours. This is all quite subdued and slightly sweet.
Very smooth and quite light with an as expected, quite mild feel to it. The palate is almost creamy and overall it is a pleasant one.

A low alcohol content but is quite flavourful and pretty well-balanced. There is a nice earthy base and a pleasant feel with some nice caramel and fruit flavours throughout.

500ml bottle - a mild maltiness in the nose, a bit of burnt caramel. Look is a bit flat, dark body, minimal tan head. palate a bit thin, not much in the aftertaste. Nothing special, but not too bad.
