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.

a little underwhelming and insubstantial. definite stout taste but too watery for anything else

Jado (573) - 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 (102) - Paisley, 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 (996) - 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.

jamesie1857 (1476) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - OCT 25, 2012
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.

MadRobin (2066) - Silver Spring, USA - OCT 24, 2012
Poured from 500ml bottle at a beer and cheese tasting at Gilly's in Rockville, MD. Opaque, near-black ruby brown with tan head and very good lacing. Aroma of raisins, dark malt and chocolate. Taste of raisins, bittersweet chocolate and roast grain. Light/medium body and medium carbonation. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

planky84 (2143) - , Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 8, 2012
Bottle from Morrisons, Sidcup. Black pour with a beige head. Coffee and chocolate aroma. Chocolate, vanilla and coffee flavour. Dry. Lingering coffee aftertaste. Quite tasty.

SilkTork (5275) - Rochester, Kent, United Kingdom, Kent, ENGLAND - OCT 5, 2012
Jan, 2003 In cask form this won Supreme Champion Beer of Britain in 2000. In the bottle it lacks character. It’s pleasant enough, for sure, but for some real kickass Mild in the bottle try Sarah Hughes Dark Ruby. [2.4]
Oct, 2012 500ml brown glass bottle from Morrisons. £1.50. Good powdery chocolate whiff and flavour. Little nip of hop and burnt barley bitterness in the swallow. A decent drinking beer, and with plenty of character and taste for a 3.4% abv. Good enough. [3.0]
