Brewmasters Notes Appearance: Obsidian black with a creamy, tan coloured head. Aroma: Subtle, malty aroma Palate: A dark, bold English-style mild ale. Expect a mild bitterness with notes of chocolate and a roasted coffee finish. Finish: Delightfully subtle with a refreshing, lingering finish.

Jado (573) - Camp Hill, - NOV 14, 2012
Dark cola-coloured body with a thinnish beige head. Aroma is light, mainly roasted malt. Taste is also fairly light, with mild coffee and deep malt flavours, followed by a dry finish. A bit thin on the palate, but not watery. It’s definitely well balanced and quite approachable. Not bad.

Listigovers (366) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 6, 2014
Very dark brown with a creamy head. Not completely opaque. Nice chocolatey smell with roasted grain. Not as heavy as it looks or smells. Tastes a bit old, might just be the tap. Refreshing, slightly stout-like flavour. An okay beer, needs more body to round out the taste, coats the mouth a bit.

Faint barley aroma that should be stronger. nice dark body with modest head. great barley flavour with hints of chocolate and hazelnut. medium finish. great amber beer for a session.

CacheManyHose (235) - HONG KONG - JUN 29, 2014
Bottle. Smells of crisp nutty malt, bit of grassy hop. Tastes of malt/corn, thin but crisp body, not as black as I expected.

dfinney23 (1839) - Houston, Texas, USA - JUN 17, 2014
I get that mild are called milds for a reason but this one is simply too mild, though the intense black of the pour would be fun to spring on people who think all dark beers are intensely roasty malty beasts.

WheatKing (1306) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 27, 2014
On tap at Garricks, Victoria. Pours opaque very dark brown, off-white head. Nose is berry, nuts, choc. Flavour is really creamy, like a very light milk stout, mouthfeel is very full. Subtle and rich. Clean finish. What a nice surprise!

kidmartinek (3742) - austin, Texas, USA - FEB 26, 2014
Black pour. White head. Lightly roasted maly aroma. Flavors of mild barley malt where the bitterness covers up the sweetness. Head vanishes. Finisbes with a little caramel malt.

simonblaine (328) - Alberta, CANADA - DEC 24, 2013
Aroma of light coffee and chocolate, pours black with little head. Taste is like a black ale should, but like its on a diet. Good, not great, but easy to drink. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
