5oz pour at the Revolution brew pub pours a transparent, caramel amber with some cloudy, white head. Nose has malty notes, toffee, a little loose leaf tea. Flavor has more nutty character to it, toast, still some tea, coffee, brown bread crust. Crisp finish.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
My Bottom Line:
Caramel, earthen truffles and toasted cereals move into minerals and leafy hop bitterness in this lean Dark Mild.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam laces around the gleaming ruby brown.
-Fruity angles are also found.
-This is not sweet at all; just lots of clean malt flavors and balancing hops.
-Carbonation could be softer (this one deserves a handpump too!).
On tap at the Milwaukee Avenue location.

Pour on tap at the brewery, dark reddish brown pour with thin off white head, aroma brought notes of bread, toast, some red fruits into a bit of cocoa, slight earthy notes with a slight grassy note. Taste was a mix of cocoa, toast, bready notes into a bit of red fruit, hints of earth, finishing slightly bitter. Pretty nice.
