Ethereal (2417) - Los Angeles, California, USA - AUG 9, 2008
Cask at GBBF 08. Oily black in appearance with a strong coffee aroma. Packs a bitter chocolate punch without any excessive sweetness and remains light and easy to drink.

hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 7, 2008
Cask at Bedford Arms Speciality Beer House, Bedford. Dark red brown. Ashy aroma and taste with a bit of sourness. Some bitterness, but overall I thought this was missing something. Maltiness perhaps.

albertane (377) - Nottingham, Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - MAR 15, 2008
Cask at the Leicester Beer Festival. I was looking forward to sampling this mild ale and I was very impressed. It’s got a really good balance of flavours with sweet toffee and some roasted coffee. Unlike Titanic Black Ice, it doesn’t try to be a porter, just an excellent mild.

I have tried this 3 times at three different festivals, mainly because of the awards it has won. I was disappointed each time. Perhaps I just dont get the whole mild thing? But if it wins these awards for overall champion, then there must be more to it. It should be better!
