Nutty and caramel aroma. Very dark appearance. Thinner than expected. Slightly sweet and chocolatey and nutty, unsurprisingly.

Cask at the Masons Arms, Solihull. Poured a murky dark brown with a frothy light tan head and loads of lace. The aroma is roasted malt and liqourice. The flavour is light bitter with a watery malt hop bitter palate and a short bitter finish. Medium to light bodied with soft carbonation. A decent session ale.

Cask at Haymarket Bar, and previously somewhere in Keswick. I remember it well, one of the best milds I’ve ever had. Near black pour, nice tan head & lacing. Lots of roasted malt notes, light coffee. Smooth taste, and surprisingly full-bodied for the strength. Roasted bitter finish. A lovely, well-made mild.
