Handpump, Sandbar, Manchester. A divisive one, but I lean towards the positive. Dark, roasted malts, tobacco, dry, treacley nuttiness too.

Leighton (11874) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 19, 2010
Cask at the White Horse Pub, London. Pours brown with a modest, off-white head. Lightly roasted malts in the aroma with faint mocha. Flavor is modestly sweet with notes of ash, cocoa and tobacco, along with a fair amount of dry bitterness. Light to medium in body with fine carbonation. Finishes is lightly dry with lingering, dark and roasted malts. Not bad.

Scauca (490) - Lovere, ITALY - AUG 24, 2010
Cask @ The White Horse, SW6. Black indeed with a little tan disappearing head. All the roasted malt related stuff in there, balanced and lovely. Could drink gallons.

thebeertourist (4904) - Oslo, NORWAY - AUG 5, 2010
Cask at The White Horse, Parsons Green. Almost black, medium head. Good chocolate aroma. Smoked meat, some chocolate, even som fruity taste. Body is light as expected. A mild with character.

DougShoemaker (3147) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 1, 2010
Cask. Aroma of coffee, cocoa and roasted malt, ebony, red at the sides. Flavour has roast coffee, cocoa and delightful malt. Light bodied, very well balanced, so well made, smooth as silk, glides down the throat. A poem!

dnas2 (705) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - JUN 1, 2010
Gravity at Cambridge Beer Festival 2010. Red-brown with a short head. Winter berries and chocolate in the scent. Thin. Quite bitter. Coffee and cherries in the mouth. Simple and nice.

KyotoLefty (6724) - Kyoto, JAPAN - MAR 19, 2010
Cask. A pitch black mild, burnt to a crisp. Great roasted malt character, decent dry flavor and finish. Almost more like a porter than a mild, but light and very drinkable. Excellent.

hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 19, 2010
Cask, gravity, at Luton BF ’10. Wasn’t very keen on the bottled version. This was very dark brown, near black, with a small off white head. Faint aroma of sulphur and sweet malt. Watery ash taste. Slight bitterness. Not worth the wait, to be honest.
