danlo (1074) - Darlington, Durham, ENGLAND - MAY 14, 2014
500ml bottle. Dark brown-black ruby colour, foamy white head with mash malty caramel type aroma. Malty dry fizzy bitterness followed by roast caramel, biscuit, coffee notes and remaining fairly dry with slight sweetish and lingering bitterness. Quite OK.

rikstar (669) - NETHERLANDS - APR 5, 2014
0,5l fles meegebracht uit York. Donker bruin bier met een witte kraag. Geur van geroosterde mout en brood. Mondgevoel is licht plakkend, smaak is bitterzoet, aangenaam bittertje in de afdronk.

One of my first mild ales, this beer pours with a thick creamy head which blasts the aroma of roasted malt and bitter dark chocolate into your face, just inviting you in. the mouthfeel is quite slick and oily but it hold a robust flavour the malt content reduces the bitterness to a minimal bite as an after taste. Smooth and rich it is a great mild for any dark beer newcomer.

Pours a dark brown colour with a thin beige head, mild malty aroma, the taste is light sweetness, with roasted malt with a dry finish.

larsga (6139) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUL 17, 2013
Medium beige head. Clear barely translucent dark brown body. Roasty earthy aroma with dusty burnt notes. Sweetish roasty nutty earthy taste with fruity notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, soft mouthfeel. Dryish minty fruity roasty aftertaste with spicy earthy oily rye crisp bread notes. Nice, vivid, and highly drinkable. (0.5l bottle, from House of Trembling Madness, York.)

A fine mild ale, not completely black in appearance but getting there. Has a medium to full body with plenty of mild but good tasting roasted notes

BlackHaddock (3488) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - JUN 14, 2013
500ml Bottle:BBD 28 Jul 2013. Shared with the wife on 14 Jun 2013. Poured into two old ’Home Ales’ half-pint countryman tankards. Dark, very dark: ruby red hints in the light, good tanned head that lasted on both halves. Malty aroma and taste: charcoal and chocolate infused coffee, all rolled up in a caramel flavoured brown bread bap. Then soaked over night in alcohol, great! Smooth, complex and tasty, more malts obviously than hops, but the hops do keep the sweetness in check nicely. Good body feel and depth: a very pleasant beer all round.

maeib (8598) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - MAY 31, 2013
Bottled 25/05/13. A near blak coloured beer with an off-white head. Roasted malts and a little banana in the nose. Chocolate and light coffee and coal fires in the mouth with a little sweetness. More like an old ale for me. Enjoyable.

jamesie1857 (1342) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 16, 2013
500ml bottle - Dark mahogany body with a light tan head. Raisin, apple, cherry and pine in the aroma. Chocolate hops and malt dominate the taste, some light coffee. Nice bitter ending. Felt closer to a stout than a mild.

My kind of beer. Too easy to drink at 5.4%, this is a dark mild cum porter. Pours darkest brown with light carbonation. Aroma is of roasted chestnuts and coffee. The palate is well balanced with subtle hops that linger after the chocolate and smoke finally disappear. Very good!
