4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Pete’s Dad’s holiday in Devon. Nice dark colours, with a small beige head. Very flavoursome Mild - at the higher ABV end of the style. Chocolate, winey notes, with a liqueur finish. Rounded, jelly mouthfeel. Sweet, jelly tot quality. Excelent stuff for my first bottled Mild.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled. Brown with a large bold tan head. Solid, try to the style, mild malt flavours. Quite a deal more kick though. Chewy, malts with caramel and soft white chocolate. Not a session ale by any stretch but quite a nice beer.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle conditioned. Almost jet black with odd glints of red/brown. Good but shortlived creamy beige head and moderate condition. Enticing roast barley and chocolate aromas, with a suggestion of coffee. Roast barley is more dominant than the choc in the mouth, and the coffee disappears, with a slight fruitiness developing. Finish is long and fruity with a hint of berries and chocolate powder.

Nice reason to brew a beer! Anyway this is a stronger, dark mild of the type I enjoy. This is no different - good roasted malts, winter fruit, sweet chocolate and an earthy edge make this a good mild. Have another child, please!
