SilkTork (5375) - Southampton, United Kingdom, Kent, - OCT 5, 2012
Jan, 2003 In cask form this won Supreme Champion Beer of Britain in 2000. In the bottle it lacks character. Itís 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]

Itís lower abv lets it down a bit imo. Yeast derived aromas, some leather, olive and brown sugar notes detected with a watery mouth feel. Ok for a mid strength.

Bottle. Very dark brown with beige head that fades fast. Aroma is very light roasted malt. Flavour is also light roasted malts, chocolate but a little thin, little watery. Good bitter balance, though. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

I love this beer, 3.4% but still decent body, Grainy roasty dry chocolate dominates the flavour and itís awesome! Blends wonderfully with the hops, well balanced, and very smooth finish. A classic English dark mild.

BrewMetal (2) - Indiana, USA - AUG 24, 2014 does not count
Pored a dark brown with ruby highlights. Clear with a tan head that quickly disolved. Hints of chocolate and moderate maltiness, also some background hints of raisin, no hop aroma. Light bodied with low carbonation, hints of chocolate and some wet papery oxidation, probably due to age. Overall a nice mild, would like to try a fresher version.

@ Greens Discount Liquor / Columbia SC --- Clear very dark ruby with a tiny rim head, no lace. Taste is light malt that quickly into the palate where a thin veneer of roasted chocolate adds body to the brew. The finish is more smooth than hoppy. This is the epitome of session beer. I could drink several 17 oz. bottles in one sitting without missing a beat. Also good with cheese and white crackers, and it even works well with sliders from White Castle. Very successful at what it attempts to be.

Mr_Pink_152 (1690) - Lincoln, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - MAR 9, 2014
500ml bottle from b&m. Dark almost black colour with a thin white head. Aroma of chocolate and dark fruit. but with a nice amount of black cherry and black berry as well. Flavour is also chocolate with cherry and toasted malt.
