COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask: Regular; Bottle: Cold filtered.

A classic example of a beer mild in hops but not in flavour. Sweetness balanced by bitter chocolate malt to produce a rare but much sought after traditional mild.

yngwie (13575) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - DEC 28, 2013
Bottle. A clear, dark amber beer topped by a small, creamy beige head. The aroma is lightly roasted, with dark dried fruits, coffee and some chocolate. Some metallic hints. Roasted, coffeeish flavor with hints of chocolate. A little bitterness too. Full to medium body, dry on the palate, with a very soft carbonation. Lasting roasted and coffee-ish finish with a solid dose of dark chocolate. Overall, sure a fine mild, easy drinkable and tasteful. 131228

thirstyrabbit (1102) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - NOV 8, 2013
Bottle. Dark brown, minimal head. Aroma has sweet roast and light cocoa. Mild but full malty and roasty taste. When I glanced at the ABV numbers I was thinking it might turn out to be too watery but itís really not.

BlackHaddock (3780) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - SEP 6, 2013
500ml Bottle: BB 23 Jan 2014. Poured into two old íHome Alesí badged Countryman glass tankards on 6 Sep 2013 (the wife wanted half). Looked fine: dark mahogany body with a full head of off-white foam. The aroma is all malts, slightly burnt and full on dark chocolate. Taste wise it is also a chocolate malt lead, but it isnít that simple, there is a lot more going on. Nutty and woody, some hidden spiciness and always a semi-sweetness being suppressed by the hop content. Very drinkable and a pleasant change from all the golden brews I seem to be having at the moment.

Bit of chocolate somewhere in the mix. Some sips are a bit rank and others are reasonably reasonable. Fizzy and thin. Is it rare if you can get it in many supermarkets? I donít want to know the answer.
