Cask in The Kings Head, Clapham. Colour is browny, berry purpley red, thin off white head. Nose is roasted malt, berry fruit. Taste is roasted malt, blackberry fruit, coffee. It all balances nicely together. Finish is malty berry fruit and coffee grounds.

Cask @ Shrewsbury Beer Festival 2013. Probably the stand-out beer of the festival for me. Has a beautifully fruity blackberry quality where you can almost taste the seeds, together with a lovely mild maltiness that slips down well. Really impressed.

Cask conditioned handpump Earl Of Essex London 07/06/13. As black as pitch with a whitish head and lace. A really fruity aroma immediately with a little roasty malt. A mix of fruit, roast and coffee in the mouth. A well constructed flavoursome mild. Really liked it.

Leighton (9848) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 8, 2013
Cask at Earl of Essex - London. Pours brown with a creamy head. Nose holds some ashy roast and hints of blackberries. Light sweet flavor with sweet, fairly juicy blackberries, subtle milk chocolate, some toasty bread. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Sweet blackberry finish, ripe berries, mellow toasty bread, dark sugars. Very tasty stuff.

This was definitely an offbeat mild. Instead of the usual flavor profile it adds some fruity aspects. For the most part it works. In some ways though it was a bit ambitious.

Aroma / Appearance - The reddish black base was fluid and light. Coffee syrup stands out though raspberry lurks beneath the surface. Making an appearance from time to time it adds more depth.

Flavor / Palate - Dark coffee is rich on the palate after just two sips. The raspberry infused syrup adds some additional depth. The finish is light and mild as advertised. I could drink beers like this all day (or at least until I got bored).

BeerCast_Rich (1841) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAY 22, 2013
[cask, the Phoenix, York] Clear deep ruby brownish pour, with purplish gleams throughout. Slightly off-pink head. Aroma is straight up blackberry crumble, as is the taste. Until the end, that is, when some dryness arrives and the beer finishes pretty quickly – but not in a bad way. Good stuff [17052013]

BlackHaddock (3183) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - DEC 6, 2012
Hand-pulled half-pint in the lovely ’Old Joint Stock’ Birmingham (West Midlands) on 5th Dec 2012. Purple sort of colour with a cream head that refused to hang around. Smell was all about the blackberries in the name, as was the taste. Tart with a bitter finish, interesting without being ’over the top’ and certainly different to any other Mild I’ve had before. It did however remind me of one beer I’ve had. A kind of watered down Fullers Jack Frost sort of brew: that might sound unkind (the watered down bit), but it is lower in ABV and the flavours are very simular.

Distinct blackberry aroma. Dark solid cream head. Rounded flavour with reasonable fruity and bitterness
