TheGrandMaster (2334) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - MAY 19, 2007
Half pint gravity fed from the cask at the Ealing Beer Festival, poured black with a bubbly tan head. A light malt aroma, some chocolate, but a bit astringent. A little watery, a roasted flavour, but a bit tart and disappointing.

Ungstrup (29694) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAR 15, 2007
Cask at GBBF 2006. A pitch black beer with a brown shine under a thin brown head. The aroma is sweet with strong notes of roasted malty combined with notes of caramel and chocolate. The flavor is sweet with notes of chocolate and roasted malt - though it isn’t leaving any dryness. the mouthfeel is smooth but a bit thin.

Doppelganger (1388) - Dry County, Arkansas, USA - FEB 19, 2007
Gravity, Merton BF. Ruby-highlighted black with a generous layer of fine dense beige foam. Sweet soft caramel aroma, toasted marshmellows, touch of apple warmth. Slightly tart roast, soft and mouth-filling, some dried fruit esters. Just a bit less depth of flavor than the aroma suggests. Still, what a lovely gentle mild. If milds were like this historically, it makes me wonder how they could have faded so much from the UK beer scene? (And how they seem to be largely ignored by brewers around the world.) Such wonderfully friendly beer!

Fin (7620) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 19, 2007
Cask conditioned at Merton Beer Festival 17-02-07. I was really looking forward to this beer having heard so much about it and the plaudits it has received. I thoroughly enjoyed it although much like the Amarillo I think there was a part of me that expected it to be even better than it was. This beer poured a very dark brown colour and was almost without a head. There were some bitter coffee notes but not as much as I anticipated. The taste was smoother than I expected with some dryness although it was also quite smooth in a stout kind of way, coffee and roasted notes were the major taste characteristics of this beer but it was a little more complex than that and developed the more that you got into it. I thoroughly enjoyed it and whilst it was slightly different to how I would normally expect a mild to be, it was quite different to some of the more robust strong milds that are really just teetering on the egde of what most people would normally accept at being a mild. Very good.

DruncanVeasey (7309) - NUNEATON, Top 23, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - JAN 15, 2007
Cask pint, Lloyd’s, Nuneaton. Blackish with very faint ruby tints and filthy caramel head. Some pleasantly assertive espresso and bitter chocolate notes, but nothing exceptional. Palatable but one-dimensional stouty dark mild.
