3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
This was very dark, with a big bubbled beige head. The palate is lovely soft and very malty, not that nutty to be honest, there is a hint of coffee on the finish. A great quaffable brew, could drink loads of this.

1.5 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
I probably havenít drunk a mild for 30 years, so I thought Iíd stretch my parameters: well, it looks good: pours deep ruby red with a beige head. However,Iím getting a rubbery vinegar aroma, and a taste more mouth dryingly sour than nutty. Not really enjoying this, perhaps it doesnít travel over the Pennines? Perhaps theres a reason I havenít drunk mild for 30 years. The further I get down the glass, the more actively unpleasant I find this, itís going down the drain.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Very dark brown/red with a thin but lasting head. Weak aroma of coffee. Flavour is fruity with a chocolate and coffee edge. Not bad for a mild.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
bottle pours almost black with a ruby red tint and a tan head . aroma is light - some toasted notes combined with light coffee. High carbonation - overdone which masks the taste somewhat and gives an edge on the palate . Thin body with taste of unsweetened cocoa , coffee dominated by a tart sourness and a metallic touch . Disappointing

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
(Bottle): Pours lovely, very black with small tinge of red. Almost no head. Aroma is nutty, hints of coffee and liquorice. Taste is similar - malty, nutty taste but unfortunately is very watery and doesnt leave much on the palate.
