Intresting mild brown beer. Nice aroma and flavor. Good session beer with a dry finish. This was a good summer beer.

ekoerper (599) - Iowa, USA - SEP 17, 2012
Aroma: toasty malts, a good dose of roast malts and coffee, really a mix of dry stout and mild in the nose. Pours black, almost opaque, but some light can get through around the edges and cast light reddish hues, off-white head dissipates somewhat quickly, spotty lacing. Flavor: nice and bready/toasty, mellow roast character, light bitterness, dry finish. Medium body, low-medium carbonation. Very easy drinking and enjoyable brew, nice!

Black color with fleeting tan head. Dry black malt, dirt, kelp, dark coffee aromas. Light bodied. Dry dark roast malt, coffee, dirt flavors--not a fan

Bomber from Bine & Vine. Pours cola color with a slight tan head. Aroma is mild chocolate. Med body. Soft carb. Flavor is darkish chocolate with some slightly burnt malt. Sort of an old fashioned Guinness aspect. Drinks nice. Finishes bitter.

A - Pours a very dark black color with a very thick finger of frothy and creamy khaki-chocolate colored head. The head fades down extremely slowly leaving behind some nice lacing. S - Aroma is a mix of roasted bitter and sweet chocolate, fruity English yeast esters, and a bit of coffee. T - Starts off with a mix of roasted baker’s chocolate with some English yeast character. Through the middle, some coffee flavor and some sweeter milk chocolate comes through. The finish is a mix of roasted chocolate malts with some lactose sweetness, English yeast notes, and a bit of coffee. M - Medium-light with moderate carbonation. Feels smooth with a sweet and roasted finish. D - Very drinkable. Nicely balanced and very sessionable. Nice example of the style.

illidurit (2327) - San Francisco, California, USA - AUG 2, 2012
Nitro tap at the brewery during RBSG 2012. Pours a deep brown with orange/red highlights and a huge tan head. Sweet coffee aroma with light roastiness, but mainly soft and sweet. Flavor is dry roasty coffee, semisweet chocolate chips. Smooth and easy to drink but finishes with a hard roastiness that turns astringent after a while.

My go to session beer! This is an easy to drink black mild that doesn’t try to blow your face apart, just designed to soothe the soul. Black as night with a beige head. Nice roast and burnt toast aromas. Smooth and super easy to drink without being watery. YUMMY

crossovert (12670) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 26, 2012
Watery. Very reminiscent of a Guiness. A ark mild should be lighter on the palate, but it should also have a bit of complexity.

3.7
GT (10000) - San Diego, California, USA - JUL 25, 2012
Tap at Eagle Rock. Clear ruby, dense head formation. Nose is raw grain, sharp roast, caramel, toffee, thicker dessert. Fresh and malty. Taste is roasty, bitter, oatmeal, rustic malt. Clean, very sessionable. Like a light porter. Very impressive for under 4%.+1 for excellent session beer.
