Good old Waitrose. I love mild (even though this is actually a modern low density stout and ’mild’ doesn’t mean more that ’fresh’ anyway but hey, who cares? Not even me and I’m writing this.) Great milky mouth-feel with lovely. Hint of sweetness and quite dry. The hop finish is quite bitter-chocolate and leafy and it lasts for quite a while. Lots of burnt malt and the mildest hint of smoked sausage. Downable stuff.

0.5 l bottle courtesy of Marko, thanks! It poured clear reddish brown body with small head. Sweet and strong malty aroma, sugar, caramel, touch of coffee. On contrary, flavor was more bitterish, coffee driven with only a bit of sweet caramel malt. Thinner in body and very simple, but pleasant. Fine, longer coffee and licorice finish. OK enough, since it’s only my first mild can’t compare, but I’m not complaining.

Bottle, Kuca Piva, Zagreb. Small off white head. Misty cola-dark ruby body. Fine dark bread & coffee nose, dry and sweetish. Taste... Diluted stout. Dry dark chocolate. Bitterish finish. Coffee with chocolate-like bitterness in the finish. This is actually quite good!

Bottle from Global Wines, Bearwood. Very nice smell: roast, sweet coco. A Mild it is, but one which has some flavour. Crisp, thinnish mouthfeel, with a soft, but drying choc/roast flavour. More than enough taste to glance the tongue and tonsils. Enjoyable.

Pours very dark chestnut with a small, creamy, beige film head. Good duration. Aroma is malty, some roasted malts, light liqourice, chocolate and a slight metallic note. Low carbonation, fine light and very dry mouthfeel. Flavour is very lovely with some good liqourice, chocolate, good dryness. A hint of coffee and sharp roasted malts. Very lovely for the ABV.
