Handpulled cask at the Express Tavern, Kew Bridge. A very dark beer; almost black with a hint of red. The aroma is like sour chocolate as is the taste. The alcohol comes through very strongly and it is hard to believe it is only 3.8%. Not a typical mild but a good drink.

Cask, gravity, at Wellington Arms, Bedford, in the Welly Winter Festival of Ale. Dark brown. Rather dreary, tasteles mild with a little cardboard and slight bitterness. Faint aroma. Nothing to detain us here.

MiP (14519) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JAN 30, 2008
Cask. Sweet soy and sweat aroma. Very dark brown colour. Almost no head. Sweet grassy hop aroma, also some soy. Thin mouthfeel. The colour led me to believe this was a malty beer, but it seems more focused on the hops.

Cask @ CAMRA Twickenham 2007. Pours a dark murky brown colour with a small head. Sweet malt and roast coffee notes in the nose.Taste of coffee, some hops give a bitter finish. A softeness and sticky/syrup element at the end.

[CASK - Shared with MiP at C4.] Nice to sample a beer with a low ABV and with such a intense flavor. Come on you microbrewers, make something similar. Redbrown and with a small head. No carbonation, but intense complex notes of roast, smoothness, caramel, bread, yeast, nuts, malt and wood. Good beer!
