On cask at Neptune Inn, Chesterfield - Solid ruby brown body, thick two finger off white head. Nose is smokey, roast nuts, coffee and a bit of chocolate. Taste is a little more robust than this piss weak milds the Midlands put out, bit of treacle at the end makes each sip a good one.

Cask at George’s, March. Impenetrable black with a wisp of off-white head. Liquorice, slate and coffee aroma. Bittersweet initial taste, but you becomes aware of the sourness as the pint goes on. Almost Guinness-like. Bitter-sour finish with a grainy coffee taste. Do I detect pork scratching a, or would that be the perfect companion to this drink? At any rate, one to seek out.

Cask, The Criterion, Leicester. Near black with a beige head. Aromas are weetabix and chocolate with cream. Mellow coffee beans with cocoa nibs and yeast. Flavours are nutty, gritty coffee with toffee and raisins. Hints of lemon with a light fruit and pine bitterness. Dry and herbal on the finish. Good.

Cask conditioned at Leicester Beer Festival ’14. Very dark brown with cream head. Full and roasty malts to the fore with this, there is a good bitterness, lasting on the palate. Earthy and nutty. Good stuff.

On cask at the Derby Beer Festival
Since there was nothing good on in the local Derby bar I headed down the hallway to try a few Muirhouse beers. After sampling them I am convinced that they might be one of the better breweries at the festival. This mild is a good example - flavorful and rich without being so overwhelming it is no longer sessionable.

Aroma / Appearance - The reddish black base and thin layer of tan head rest in the glass peacefully. The lack of carbonation is no surprise given the cask treatment. Roasted coffee, bittersweet dark chocolate, and malts tickle the nose. This smells like the office coffee pot right after the last drop comes out of the percolator.

Flavor / Palate - Coffee, dark fruits, and chocolate rinse clean the palate and lay a foundation for enjoyment. The texture of slightly burnt toast carries into the dry finish. Tasting of one dollar coffee from the gas station it has this cheap feel that somehow works with the other elements. If I could only have tried one beer at the festival this would have been no letdown.
