From cask. Pours dark brownwith a small tan head. Aroma is roasted malt and breadish. Dark roasted malt and slight bitter to vague acidic. Ends dry and roasted malty.

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 (8427) - 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.

Muggus69 (1767) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - FEB 10, 2010
Cask Dark cola-like body, small offwhite foam. Muted aroma; sweet nutty malts, faint floral hop. Low carbonation, medium body, oily kind of texture. Mild roasted nut flavour on the body, toffee sweetness, slightly treacle-like. Floral hops on a reasonably bitter finish. Decent dark bitter.

joe19612 (2366) - camberley, Surrey, ENGLAND - AUG 19, 2009
Cask at GBBF 2009. Very dark brown colour with a off white head. Good smooth roast aroma, the taste is off a light coffee. Good smooth bitter finish. A real good mild.

bobinlondon (1276) - Harrow, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 21, 2009
Handpulled cask at the Moon and Sixpence, Hatch End. Very dark brown/chestnut with a healthy off white head. Good smooth roast/smoke choc balance with plentyy of hops for a mild coming through in the finish. What a session beer!

berkshirejohn (5512) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - JUN 3, 2009
Cask at the Monks Retreat (JDW), Reading. Pitch black, with a tawny glow and a soft tan head; peaty and smoky aroma, like a good Islay malt whishy, with undertones of chocolate malts; milky texture, dry at first, then a sweet sugar rush, followed by chocolate milk shake; leading to a dry, slightly nutty finish. A very satisfying mild, punching way above its weight.
