BeerViking (2315) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 14, 2011
Cask at the Magpie, pours a dark red-brown with a mid-coarse beige head and aromas of malt and coffee. Roasty and faintly bitter on the palate, with hints of chocolate and an underlying red-fruit sweetness, and the roastiness persisting into the aftertaste.

weaselkenievil (1608) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - APR 10, 2011
Cask at Waters Green Tavern Macclesfield. Pleasant and drinkable. It’s a dark ruby brown with a thin pale brown head. Thin mouthfeel. Little sweet caramel nutty flavour with some roasted malts.

planky84 (1930) - , Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 7, 2011
Cask at the ’Grape and Grain’ beer festival. Reddish brown pour with a white head. Berries, caramel and a little wood aroma. Nuts, berries, chocolate and some hop flavours. Fruity, bitter finish.

Vladivostok (227) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - JUL 15, 2010
Darkish mild with a roasty flavour. This type of mild always strikes me as being neither fish nor fowl - not dry or strong enough to be a porter nor sweet and caramely enough for a ’traditional’ mild. Okay though, but not my favourite.

FatPhil (9182) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUN 12, 2010
Cask (Gallows Bird, Espoo, Real Ale Festival 2003)
Very deep red, lovely bready head. Rich sweet aroma, caramelly and chocolatey. Lovely smooth palate, carbonation low, and softened by the sweetness. Chocolatey taste. Good mild, just what you want from 3.8%. (Rating discovered while packing stuff for my move in 2010!)

rickgordon (3843) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - APR 14, 2010
From cask at Oliver Twist, Stockholm. Dark brown colour with expected vague head. Cocoa-cola nose along with dark fruits, red apples and light sourish. Light chocolate features in flavour and light toasty with apples again. Light bodied and bit astringent and tad phenolic with low bitterness.

ladnewton (1400) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 30, 2010
Cask at the Cask Pub & Kitchen on 24th March 2010. Brown/red with vanishing off white head. Roast malts in the main. Vinous kick then maltiness continues until a slightly bitter finish. Smooth texture.

RichardGretton (4229) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - MAR 20, 2010
Cask@Loughborough Beer Festival, 2010. Lightly black beer with a malty aroma and a malty and gently hopped flavour. Overall an average malty and hopped beer.

Ethereal (2417) - Los Angeles, California, USA - DEC 31, 2009
Cask at Wandsworth Common Halloween Beer Festival, 30th Oct 09. Very dark brown. Deep berry and caramel malt aroma. Sweet, rich, roasted flavour. A decent mild.

fiulijn (14350) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 28, 2009
Cask Conditioned at Oliver Twist, Stockholm
Dark amber color. The aroma is a bit sour, I expect to see fruit flies at any time. Caramel flavor, smooth but dry mouthfeel, with a light sourness out of place; correctly bitter. Probably not in good conditions.
