The mirror image of Rock Bitter, smooth and dark with a biscuity flavour. Back in the pre-war days this beer would have been on sale in virtually every one of the brewery's jug and bottle counters throughout the county and beyond.

August 2016 - Cask handpull at GBBF 2016, as ’Nottingham Rock Mild’. Opaque black, foamy brown head. Aroma is molasses and chocolate. Body is smooth with soft carbonation. Taste is chocolate, soft toffee malts, milky fudge. Lovely balance and flavours. Delivers a lot at the ABV. A very good mild indeed. (3.7)

theprof (528) - Nottingham, Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - JAN 6, 2016
UPDATED: MAY 18, 2016 Cask at the Crown. Smells yeasty and mealy to me. Pours mahogany dark with cream scum some lacing. Tastes of roasted malt and heather honey with a great tang on the palate. A classic. Bemused that this is my first rating as it’s not the first taste.

DruncanVeasey (8012) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - APR 15, 2014
The Trent Bridge, Nottingham, 11/04/14. Dark ruby topped with beige. Dunkelweizen-like plum and spiced apple on nose; chocolate, citrus hop. Really decent with contemporary citrus and blackcurrant undercurrents leaning towards bipartisan (black IPA!). Some coffee grounds; slight tang of sour. Really good.

BlackHaddock (6391) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - DEC 5, 2013
Hand-pulled half-pint in the Old Blenheim, Oxford during a heavy pub crawl on 23rd Nov 13. Lovely dark body with tanned crown of smooth foam which hung around for a while. The nose was of over roasted malts and fruit esters, semi-sweet caramel came through too. The taste was similar to what the aroma promised: malty, semi-sweet and fruity in nature. Nothing to set it apart from all the other well made UK Milds around, but a fine example of the art, even if it lacked individuality. The body was heavy enough for a 3.8% Mild and almost smooth in texture, made a pleasant change from some of the brews I’d had before and after on my Uber crawl around Oxford.

Cask at the Sussex Arms, Twickenham Green, 15/11/13. Light black/extremely dark mahogony brown with a thin tan head that clears to a swirl. Nose is light toffee, sawdust, earthy, faint berry fruits, liqourice. Taste comprises cocoa, hint of soap, liqourice, touch of berry fruit, Soreen Malt Loaf, Ribena. Medium bodied, soft carbonation, dry conclusion. Decent mild.
