<i>Gravity at The Bree Louise, London</i>
Red-mahogany color. A good mix of (light) malt and caramel, lightly fruity too; luckily there is no roasted malt, unfortunately there is a light metallic touch. The final, well bitter, is also a bit harsh. Enjoyable.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: SEP 20, 2005 Cask at Yew and Ewe, Brookland. Black in colour, chocolate malt on nose, almost petroly. Excellent malts with grainey burnt malt finish. Some acidity and goodish length finish. One of my favourite dark milds.
Wonderful, can drink it all night as it is only 3.4%
Re-rate cask handpull at Yew Tree Inn Barfrestone. Even better than before. Excellent choc/coffee aroma but just gorgeously mild. Body is satisfying and the finish is long and exciting. So much flavour for a beer so weak
