OOne of St Austell’s best kept secrets, Black Prince is a black mild ale and well worth investigating. Deep, dark and intriguing, Black Prince has a full-bodied fruity flavour, the perfect complement to a Steak & Kidney Pudding or Steak & Ale Pie.

Leighton (18527) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 6, 2011
Cask at The Market Porter, London. Pours deep brown with a small, off-white head. Living up to its name, this beer’s character is mild. Some pleasant dough notes, light butter, bread. Very subtle fruits. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Perfectly acceptable.

[cask at 2009 GBBF, Earl’s Court] Dark black porter, looks quite thin on the pour rather than being viscous. Light at 4%abv. There was something about this I was trying to put my finger on for ages – it’s roasty but not too dark. There’s a hint of molasses, a sweetness but with some subtlety. It’s good stuff – I was getting hints of what I thought was slight coffee – but I realised later it reminded me of sugared tea – the bitter tannin flavour that’s not quite coffee-bitter, mixed with a sweetness. Good stuff [05082009]

Oakes (15651) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 28, 2010
@ Raven, Bath. Dark chestnut. Bright, with a nice head. Deep pruney, fruity, molassesy nose - yum. Deep liquorice character, soft with molasses and other rich, dark sugars. Fantastic. A classic mild.

Beershine (5221) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - SEP 10, 2010
Cask @ The Raven (Coastal Beer festival). Ruby-tinted black with thick tan head. Gorgeous. Big fruity aroma is fruit plus carbon and prunes. Nice! Great prune flavors too. Smooth and silky. Well-developed chocolate malts. Absolutely delicious and well-made.

FatPhil (13867) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - AUG 22, 2010
Cask (GBBF2010) - queued up 10 minutes before the bar opened for this one!
7 Sweet raisiny bread pudding aroma
5 Black. Healthy tan head
8 Beautiful roasty taste, packed full of raisins. A touch milky.
4 Soft palate, carbonation low. Finish gloriously soft and roasty. Hops only arrive later.
16 All in 4% - amazing. This has everything from a rich roast, to a long dry nutty bitter finish. This is dark quaffable beer as it should be.
