Leeds Beer Festival 2017. Dark, slightly sweet mild but very palatable - certainly in its texture.

Mr_Pink_152 (5642) - Lincoln, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - OCT 15, 2016
Tried at the Nottingham Beer Festival 2016. Mahogany colour with a thin head. Roasted malt and light fruit aroma and taste that has a touch of coffee.

theprof (1301) - Nottingham, Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - FEB 3, 2016
Cask. Aroma of earthy loam with vinegary undertones. Pours dark chestnut with thin gop. Some lacing.
Tastes malty at the front more toasted than caramelized. Some peaty notes and a backwash of hops within a thin body light carbonation and watery on the palate. Bonum rather than optimum.

edsspoon (905) - Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - JUN 30, 2015
Cask - ruby red with a creamy greyish head. Aroma of whisky, peat and vinegar. Taste of peat, rum, vanilla, a little plastic, toasted malt and cocoa in the finish. Thin body, low carbonation. Maybe was starting to turn bad when I had it.

3.8
niquillis (2752) - Stoke on Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 15, 2015
On cask at Red Lion, Thornby. Pours chestnut with a light tan head. Some nut, hint of caramel. Very smooth, a cracking mild.

2.7
Beese (3262) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 24, 2014
Cask at The Watford Beer Festival 2012. Poured a murky dark brown, with a halo of beige head. Aroma of dark malt, light earth and dates. Roasted malt flavours, with some cold coffee and ash. Light mouth feel. Finish was brown sugar, hay and grain.

2.7
BlackHaddock (7753) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - JUN 25, 2014
Hand-pulled half-pint in The Town and Country Club, Rugby on 25th June 2014. Looks like a Mild, dark brown to almost black with a red hue: creamy, but thin head. Malty with a slight bitter finish: decent but not great, my pour might have been towards the end of an old barrel, as there was a distinct off-ish feel to the taste, with vinegar notes trying to assert themselves. Scored as best I can under the circumstances.

1.7
vipinvelp (4555) - Velp, NETHERLANDS - APR 8, 2014
Clear dark brown with no foam head lasting. Aroma is kind of muddy, barley. Tastes very watery, can’t think this is a beer. (Barnsley 201404)
