Pretty average mild, not especially sweet or nutty. A simple session beer, not a great example of mild.

SilkTork (5277) - Rochester, Kent, United Kingdom, Kent, ENGLAND - JAN 11, 2014
April, 2012 JDW, Rochester. Chocolate malts prominent, developing a raspy burnt flavour that is dry, robust and interesting. Drinkable, though not sure how much I could take.

worldbeertaste (1693) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - NOV 25, 2012
Dark maroon with a creamy lasting, tan frothy, head. Smells of dark berries, nuts with lgiht malt and a light sweet toffee in the background. Thin light body with a slight creamy element. Tastes strong berries (overrip fruit), caramel and ash that combies with a smoked sharp alcohol bitter finish. Too watery and overall bland
