For those that do not know this beer (which is probably most people), this was the second beer we ever made. The Dark Mild Ale never had a real name nor did it even get packaged in a bottle. Back in 1997 when we stopped producing it we did not own a bottling line yet. This dark sessionable ale was a favorite of the brewers, however not understood in craft beer’s infancy 15 years ago. We think now craft drinkers will get it.

Purchased at Armanetti’s in Chicago, IL; enjoyed on a Friday afternoon after getting my teeth whitened, which didn’t really work very well. Appearance is a dark amber with a thin off white head that rims around the glass. Aroma is very rich in caramel, with notes of butterscotch, and a very small touch of hops. Delicious aroma. Taste is outstanding, very flavorful, it actually finishes slightly crisp but still has a nice sweetness to it. At 3.2% I can see myself definitely getting this again, but I guess I should act fast as it’s a ltd ed release. Great stuff!

HonkeyBra (4036) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - MAY 1, 2012
22 oz. bottle as part of their 15th Anniversary line. Pour a translucent chestnut colored hue with a some sparse bubbles on top. Aroma of rich coffee, chocolate, and roasted chestnuts. Some peanut brittle, pumpernickel bread, nutella. Flavor is chocolatey, lots of rich caramel and toffee. Notes of dark breads, banana bread, with a very mild bitterness to balance the beer out. Light bodied, refreshing. This is a really great mild ale from Two Brothers. I applaud them.

BBB63 (6557) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - MAY 17, 2012
Bomber bottle and served on standard no-nik pint glass: Pours a light brown/deep amber hue with a small head but nice lacework. The aroma has wonderful earthy notes of nutty brown, medium-roast, English pale chocolate and aromatic malts along with some pear and apple esters. A touch of vinegar acidity on the nose but luckily is not there on the palate. The taste has a smooth nutty and slightly coffee character than is not sweet supported by some faint Goldings like bitterness. A undertone of mild fruit notes and even some earthy character makes this much more than a simple session ale. The mouth feel is smooth, slightly ashy and not interfering. This is what it is, a solid session ale right up my alley and every bit as good (if not better) than my homebrew. If this was in sixers I would buy a case... as it is I will pick up a few more bomber bottles because at 3.2 ABV it still would not knock my dick in the dirt. BRAVO 2 Bros!!! (Was this entered in the WBC? Because this is what a Mild Ale should be)

Aroma is coffee and caramel nuttiness. The flavor is coffee, malts, chocolate and a mildly fruity/tart finish. Subtle but very good.

hayduke (4920) - Eureka, California, USA - JUL 9, 2012
This bomber was courtesy of Srykzone via a trade. Thanks Dave. It poured a dark amber tending toward muddy brown with a nice light brown head and good lacing. Nose is earthy, with nuts. Medium in body and very soft in mouthfeel. The flavor is nuts, chocolate, roasted malts, a hint of coffee. The finish shows some bitterness. This is very tasty and easy drinking, and defines what a session beer should be like

first off... so glad they remade this... now please for the love of whatever... put this in a 6 pack cans or bottles!!!! I would drink the hell out of it. Beautiful yeast character, well attenuated, light roast, some tea-like bitterness, malty, fruity and delicious.

JStax (5214) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - JUL 21, 2012
Poured from a bottle into a tulip glass. Pours a translucent brown with a fluffy head of beige color. Good retention. Aroma is light and just hints at notes of darker malt, caramel, nuts, and bread. Taste is a little sweet, but predominantly roasty. This is a nice mild. If I were Two Brothers, I’d very heavily consider making this a regular offering.

Thanks to Pawola22 for sending me this bottle. The beer pours a brown color with an off-white head. The aroma is very nice. I get some toffee and caramel notes, as well as a little bit of nuttiness. The flavor is very similar. I get a lot of toffee and nut notes, as well as a hint of dry cocoa powder. Thin to medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. This beer has a lot of body and flavor for a beer that is so low in alcohol. This is very well done.
