Not completely black, has a slight red glow. Maintains a thick creamy head but without much flavour below it. Relatively smooth to drink.

Cask at Our Mutual Friend, Stevenage, described as Theakston Dark Mild. Deep chestnut with a tight beige head; nutty aroma; thin but with powerful earthy and nutty malts, becoming slightly sweeter, then some light hops before a bready finish. A full bodied mild.
