Bottled. A deep red beer with a thin brown head. The aroma is sweet maty with notes of caramel combined with a light spicy note. The flavor is sweet malty with light notes of roasted malt, leading to a dry bitter finish. The body is thin. Thanks fonefan and Brugmansia for sharing.

MiP (15304) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - SEP 10, 2008
Bottle, 3.4%. Weak roasted and creamy aroma. Almost black colour. Good roasted flavour, creamy and slightly cardboardy. Thin mouthfeel, but OK considering ABV.

Fin (9684) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 29, 2008
Bottle, dropped off very kindly by Marc Bartram, Bartrams Brewey with casks for the Beer Festival Poured dark brown with light beige head, aroma is very light but there are some sweet malts just detectable. This is a simple typical British Mild, but one that’s done well, ok so it doesn’t have the oomph of say a Beijing Black and it isn’t quite up there with my current favourite Welland Valley Mild, but it’s nice and I would happily have a pint or two of this. There is a nice swishy funky fruity sourness creeping through, it is a bit thin maybe but hey it’s a Mild and a rather nice one at that.
