Black Beauty Mild joined the Stable last year as a dark outsider and dark is the word! Rich Ruby in colour, using the best chocolate malt and fine English Fuggle hop to achieve a flavour that leaves the herd behind like a true Champion!

berkshirejohn (5395) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - JUN 4, 2013
Cask at the Bird in Hand, Knowl Hill. Dark with a reddish copper glow and a ring of white head; fruity aroma with a touch of hops; immediate hit of Fuggles hops in the mouth, then sweet and malty; the finish is dry with raisins and sultanas. Very good, but rather an odd mild.

Clear dark brown beer. Soft to dry palate. Nice balance of malt and hops. The hops start pretty bitter but then turn more fruity and finally end up a little sweet. Not bad!
