Erasmus_ro (2179) - Alabama, USA - JAN 22, 2012
Cask @ Gallows Bird. Pours a hazy dark red with a large, beige head. Aroma is fruity and nutty. Taste is fruit, nuts and caramel. A bit underwhelming though not that surprising considering the style and when it was had (in the middle of a tasting).

dogbomb (1126) - ENGLAND - NOV 24, 2011
Pours a nice dark ruby with a quickly receding mid-brown head. Heady malts with nuts and a mild coffee on the nose. Mild bitter drink (living up to it’s name) but is a little heavy. A light carbonation and the mild bitter finish making this very drinkable.

BeerCast_Rich (1906) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - NOV 7, 2011
[cask at Melton’s Too, York] Deep brownish red beer, quite a lovely colour. Thin white head. Roasty malt aroma with some chocolate, touch of fruit on the nose. Nutty, slightly toffeeish on the palate, more chocolate. Very well balanced. Very drinkable, touch thin maybe, but to be expected given the style [30102011]

AleManTom (195) - Chapel en le Frith, Derbyshire, ENGLAND - NOV 7, 2011
Aroma of nuts, a big rich nutty flavour. Dark red with a disc head. Plenty to it, just not quite to my taste, a good mild.

EdKing (2264) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 17, 2011
Cask in Dog and Duck. Pours reddish. Thin White head. Nose is sweet fruity malt. Taste is sweet fruity malt. Feels like it’s been dry hopped which is odd for mild. Dry chalkiness on the tongue. Not blowing me away and not sure about the dryness.
