jgb9348 (5725) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - APR 1, 2009
Brownish coloured body with a light tan head. Aroma of light roasted malt, subtle mushrooms and a bit of a nutty scent. Light to Medium-bodied; Sharp metallic flavour up front fades into a malty taste and a bit of pit fruits in the taste. Aftertaste shows some nutty tastes along with a very mild coffee and chocolate type taste. Overall, a decent beer; definitely good to try! I sampled this pint on cask at The Market Porter in Borough, London, England on 11-March-2008.

MesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 10, 2008
A Mes rate: cask at the Hop Farm festival.
Mid brown with a thin beige film, quite light for a mild. Excellent meaty malt notes with some slight coffee and some good caramel. A little more chocolate and roasted malt appears in the mouth giving a good bitter note plus some toasted bread in the finish. A jolly good mild.

Bottle. Smokey cocoa and cola aroma. Dark brown color with giant tan head. Tart/lightly astringent smokey chocolate/toffee malt flavor. Nice full body plus really enoy the smokiness.
