(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.

Bottle conditioned. I love the fact that the bottle says itís export strength at 3.9%. Rock on! Smells of chocolate and vine tomatoes. Tastes of slightly roasted, melon juice. Very soft in the mouth. Not bad.

Bottle bought from Premier in Sheffield. Pours a dark red with little head, light aroma, initially quite weak tasting but settled down over the course of drinking. Pleasant but not astonishing.

This is a decent thick and medium bodied beer with a thin but resistant head. Aroma as the name suggests is somewhat soft and nutty. Taste is soft-coffee with a nutty back taste. Overall a decent beer.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Really nice black ruby pour with great head. Aromaís a bit nutty, roasty, and fruity, but more apple than the darker carameled fruits iíd like/expect. Taste is alright, with some nutty biscuit notes and a bit of roast again. Palate is a bit thin, though the carbonation amps it a bit.

Bottled from Waitrose. Relatively thin head and deep, rich coca-cola brown colour with hints or dark red. Slightly sweet in aroma and flavour with light carbonation. Quite well balanced "mild" flavours: well roasted with a smoky burnt toast finish.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours dark with a thin head. Fairly easy to drink with an unspectacular taste. It may be a mild but has a lot in common with a black beer. Coffee, malt and a slightly nutty burnt taste , that said it is also a little watery. At 3.9% it isnt too strong to session though. Not great but not awful.

A very dark brown to black in colour with an off white head. Aroma of malt, coffee and nuts. A flavour to match the aroma with a nice light bitter finish..

Iím not a massive fan of mild. Iíve not drunk a pint of it in over twenty years, mainly because the pubs I frequent havenít had it for sale since the 1980s. However, this is very smooth, very pleasant beer and Iíd definitely drink it again if I was in the mood for something to while away an afternoon.
