4 Deep brown, tiny head
6 Rich roast, but heading towards dryer ashy tastes
3 Full roastiness, but very dry and nutty.
11 Not what I needed at the time. Can imagine liking this more in other contexts.

sm89walt (1992) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - APR 27, 2009
Cask - Coach and Horses, Norwich. Dark brown with a deep red hue and a medium off-white head. Roasted malts, some chocolate and some fruity notes on the nose. Flavours consist of more roasted malts, some coffee and a nutty quality. A bitter roasted malt finish, good body - smooth and easy-drinking - with a lasting dryness. This ones definitely moreish - a tasty, balanced mild.

Rodders (137) - Norwich, Norfolk, ENGLAND - FEB 20, 2009
(Pint at the Coach and Horses, Norwich) Very dark red with a small white head. Berry smell but very weak, although not unpleasant. Taste a bit chocolate with soap and sweet and roasted malt. Coffee comes in more as I drink and the aftertaste is really quite bitter. Pretty good, although rather uninteresting.

Ethereal (2421) - Los Angeles, California, USA - DEC 27, 2007
Cask at the Coach & Horses, Norwich, 27th Dec 2007. Dark caramel colour with not much head. Very little aroma. Good flavour of burnt sugar, caramel, chocolate and roasted malt. Smooth mouthfeel but very front of the mouth taste and not a long finish. Definitely high strength for a mild!
