500ml bottle. Pours a dark ruby brown with a small frothy head. Aroma is roast coffee, not that strong. Some coffee and malt to start and some chocolate on the finish. Medium bitter finish. Very smooth. Glad to see it drinks above its strength.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
2010-08-04. Very dark brown body small tan head fades. 3+ Modest aroma, sweet mild malt, caramel accents, muted toasty touches. Flavour is mild, sweet malt core with mild toasty malt accents, very light tangy caramel touch in the finish, bit of yeast and florals that harken back to the Honey Porter that preceded it. (Enough so that I wonder if its coming off my moustache rather than the Mild...) Smooth average palate is a bit flat. 2+ Not unpleasant but overly mild, and a bit dull. Might have fared better if it had not followed the Honey Porter, who knows. Cask at Jerusalem Tavern, London

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Deliziosa ale terrigna, grezza e dolce, con naso di liquerizia, specialmente beverina nonostante la sua caratterizzata mielosità, messa a fuoco da note di cacao soffuse e non molto aggressive. La mia prima mild ale, mica male come inizio.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Reddish black beer with a light head. The aroma is milky chocolate with bitter and roasted notes, and the flavour is quite bitter and roasted. Overall a nice quite bitter and roasted mild, and more stronger tasting than the average mild.
