2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Cask, gravity, at Luton Beer Festival ’11. Very dark brown, near black, with a small off white head. Rather a sulphurous aroma.Taste has a little sourness, faint malt and dryness. My first from this brewery, and it’s not a promising start, I’m afraid.

Cask handpull, SIBA Champions Fest 2011, The Canalhouse, Nottingham. Burgundy under a fine beige top. A level of complexity above the other beers I’ve had today. Aroma; dung, cigars, dead leaves. Lots of dung. Flavour; burnt nuts, chocolate-dusted leaf matter. Slippery condition. Love a mild when it’s not.

7 Lovely rich chocolatey aroma.
4 Deep reddy brown, small head
6 Dry burntness, but well short of ashy. Some dark berries for tart sweetness too.
3 Not a simple palate, it’s quite agresively sharp.
11 Too sharp to hook me as a mild.

One of the best beers in the bar I was volunteering. Nice head and spicy features, not so watery and very dark.

Almost a perfect mild. Great malt taste with the darker malts being wonderfully balanced. Has plenty of body but still slips down very easily.
