A Sim rate (Manchester BF): Smoke and roast in the flavour. Its a mild, but almost porter-esque. Almost opaque. I had to literally find the light within it. Sweet, but vinegary. Its wine-like. OK, but a mild afterall.

From cask at Guildford Arms. Pours dark brown to almost black with a diminished tan head. Roasted malt aroma with a mild liqourice spice note. Light acidic flavoured out of a solid roasted malt breadish flavour with a hint of chocolate. Light acidic and roasted malty finish.

Cask conditioned at The Turf Tavern, Oxford. Black with cream head. Big, oatmealy beer almost a stout in flavour, burnt, dry coffee notes, qhite husky with touches of malty sweetness, biscuity and thick on the palate. Decent.

Fin (10321) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 28, 2007
Cask at Merton Winter Beer Festival, 2005 Going back through my travel log and Merton Beer Festival information tonight and picking up those Ive not added yet. This is a really decent Mild that Ive had many times since. Poured dark brown with a beige head, simple mild but nice coffee and chocolate aroma to this. Lovely roasted mlt taste and whilst uncomplicated very well done.

FatPhil (15575) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - NOV 14, 2007
UPDATED: MAY 20, 2008 Cask (Live and Let Live, Cambridge) Almost black, thin off-white head. Roasted malt aroma. Creamy and succulent mouthfeel. Taste has the biscuity sweetness, but also a serious dark bready roasted maltiness too, all topped off with a creamy mocha burntness. Light hopping keeps it crisp too. Superbly well balanced, excellent mild.

Doppelganger (1388) - Dry County, Arkansas, USA - SEP 15, 2007
UPDATED: MAY 17, 2008 Cask, Turf Tavern, Oxford. Deep brown, nice tan head. Caramel, toast, butter aroma. Perked coffee flavor, brown bread with a smear of marmite. Thinish, but not watery. Pleasant mild, and vastly better than in previous experience. (Previous Rating: 15 Sept 2007 Cask, Far From The Madding Crowd, Oxford. Very dark brown, small tan head. Dark bread and rust aroma, nuts. Iodine sourness, mineral. Palate is soft and pleasant but everything else seems a bit off. Not sure if the cask is in the best shape, though most of the time FFTMC takes good care of their stuff. Have to hunt this one down again some time. 6/3/5/4 9)

Blackfriers. Aroma os roasted baley hints of wheat, coffee and chocolate malt dominating. Taste is similar exstremly smooth, really drinkable and sessionable. Too bad the cask finished so quickly!
