I find it curious how skewed ratings are towards the big, bold and strong. Subtlety has its place too, and as much as I like a beautiful imperial stout, its not something I would be able to go back to day after day. Why the lack of love for milds? Anyway, rich dark brown appearance with a creamy nitro head. Roasted malts in the nose. Creamy roasted malt flavour with coffee hints. Very smooth and light on the palate. A nice example of a sadly unpopular style. Good session beer.

Deep mahogany under a nitro-cream head. Worty nose with dark chocolate notes and candle wax. Felt and tasted like a creamy Guinness-clone, with a darker chocolate persona along with some red wine to linger.

Big round butterscotch and caramel aroma with plenty of chocolate apparent also. Opaque brown body is topped by a decent sized nitro tan head that lasts throughout and coats the glass. Mildly fruity flavour has some butterscotch and caramel along with bitter sweet chocolate, roast and a light saltiness in the aftertaste. Medium body is quite slick with soft, bland, nitro carbonation. Sampled on tap at the brewpub.

UPDATED: JAN 5, 2008 [040-20060909] Tap @ Cest What (Toronto, ON). Fruity brown aroma. Black body with a creamy light brown head and lacing on the glass. Very thick, tar-like coffee, malty flavour. Full body, heavy on the tongue. Surprisingly dark and fully stouty for its name. (6/5/7/4/14) 3.6

[833C-20071113] Tap @ Cest What (Toronto, ON). Yeasty earthy hops aroma. Hazy, dark brown body with a medium-lasting creamy light brown head. Tastes like earthy mushrooms in a field of grass. Medium-full body. Initially unknowingly irritating, eventually quite enjoyable. (7/4/8/4/15) 3.8

(Draught) Pint at the bar. Pours a very lightly carbonated, deep brown body with little head. Nose of roasted malt and mild jerky. The flavour is nutty and very malted with a hint of hops in the finish. Tastes more of a Nut Brown Ale than a Mild; but hey...

Draught at Cest What, shared with HogTownHarry. Pours a clear, very dark, ruby-brown with a creamy light-brown head. Aroma of chocolate, bacon bits and some mild hops. Yes, bacon bits. In a good way. Flavour of chocolate, some nuts, malt and a hoppy aftertaste. Pretty good for a Mild Ale but overall its just O.K.
