Cask @ The Wenlock Arms, London.maeib (8749) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - APR 17, 2008
Pours deep redish mahogany brown. A super-fine, staying, creamy off-white head on top. Aroma is soft, sweet caramel, some chocolate and light hops. Very low carbonation - fitting the beer nicely. Flavour is great, softly roasted, light doughy, sweet chocolate and subdued hops. A good mild.
UPDATED: MAY 30, 2010 Cask conditioned - gravity dispense - Coventry BF. A dark dark brown coloured beer verging on ruby. The aroma is really hoppy together with chocolate and caramel. The taste is delicious. Great hops together with lovely fruits and chocolate. Real quality this.Score 4.0DruncanVeasey (8225) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - APR 11, 2008

UPDATED: APR 12, 2008 Covfest ’08. Mild?? Didn’t drink like one. Stouty with ruby tints. VERY blackcurranty opening dominates with big fruity hops, lemon, vanilla, smooth chocolate, long biscuity finish. Crisp, zinging and good. Classic festival-opener. downender (8584) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - MAR 13, 2008
On gravity at the London Drinker festival 12/3/08. Near black with a slight tan head. Aroma of black fruit, chocolate and roasted malt with some citrus hops. Flavour of caramel with some fruit and a decent dry finish. Very good, but I preferred the Oakleaf and Brewdog milds more at the same festival. SaintMatty (7296) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - MAR 12, 2008
Draught at Pullman Bar, Helsinki- Very dark brown in colour with red tinges and a small head. Citrus fruits in the aroma with grapefruit and lemon sticking out along with some chocolate. Chocolate and caramel in the taste with the aftertaste being strange but enjoyable with a hint of lemon, ginger and vanilla.
