3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask Conditioned at Oliver Twist, Stockholm
Dark amber to brown color. There are hints of roasted malt, both in the aroma and flavor; the mouthfeel is quite dry, the body stronger than the average, and the dominant flavor is dark chocolate. The final is chocolatey, dryish as well. Pleasant.

4.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Cask at GBBF ’09, dark brown with a large yellowish head. Just a light nose that has touches of caramal. A big mouthfeel, lots of malt with some coffee, some chocolate, and some smokiness. Impressively complex for a Mild. It is obviously in good form. I love it.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Cask at the GBBF 2009. An appropriate beer for my 100th rating with it being the Champion beer at the festival this year. It’s a nice dark red beer with oak and wood chip aroma with maybe a touch of dark fruits in the background. Nice full palate and overall very well balanced. The flavours are fruity and hoppy with a lovely, long, bitter finish. Excellent and especially flavourful for a mild.

500ml bottle. Dark chestnut in colour with some reddish undertones. Big, but short-lived, tan head and plenty of carbonation. Aroma of blackcurrants, sweetish doughy malt and hazelnuts. Flavour was also sweet, with lots of berry fruit, some roastiness and a soft, bitter finish. Very drinkable.

Cask in the Magpie & Crown, Brentford. A beautiful looking pint, deep red-black, with a thin head that lasted surprisingly long and laced the glass well. A sweet malty nose was followed by a full body with prune and dry roasty flavours, and then a dry bitter finish.
