Dark brown with a roasted aroma. Full bodied for its strength. Caramel and chocolate dominates with a slight burnt character. Nice and long dry aftertaste

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask conditioned at the 32nd Cambridge Beer Festival, gravity dispense. One of the craziest beer names so far - chris_o told me it’s adopted from a Cream song (I guess I should have known that). Dark brown colour, low head, some natural carbonation. According to the CBF programme it’s "a little too hoppy to be a classic mild" - still it is not VERY hoppy, just the typical Southern English dusty hoppiness. Aroma and flavour are malty with some caramel (but not really sweet), some cola notes.

Fruity light mild. Rather lovely fruity flavour but ever so light in colour and flavour.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask conditioned - no sparkler - Malt Shovel Northampton. 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 conditioned] Very dark brown coloured. Very mild and very malty. A classic mild ale with a very funny name.

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Cask conditioned @ Railway Arms. A farmers bag of wild hedgerow fruits ripe for the plucking and dark as a smuggler’s cave. A blessing in disguise.

Cask conditioned @ Railway Arms, Alton. Fruity, roast, malt and toffee aroma. Dry body with some coffee. Excellent mild but I couldnt really appreciate it on the hottest day of 2004 so foar.

Very dark colour and full bodied for a mild - I wasn't sure whether this was supposed to be a mild or a stout. The slightly bitter finish reinforced this. Whatever it is, I thought it was very appealing and, if it is a mild, it is certainly my type of mild. Handpump, The Crosse Keys, City of London, March 2003
