Bottled (backlog). More or less black colour with a small off-white head. Aroma is liquorice, caramel, some mild non-sweet syrup as well as some toasted notes. Flavour is mild toasted malts, some wheat, mild liquorice, caramel and some non-sweet syrupy and resiny notes. madmitch76 (25321) - , Essex, ENGLAND - FEB 26, 2014

Chelmsford Winter Beer Fest in KEGS. Cask. Almost opaque dark brown - black beer, small pale tan head. Palate is light and semi dry. Mild crispness from decent fine carbonation. Smooth and very mellow dark malts. Whisper of dark chocolate. Nice touches of sweet candy fruits, parma violets and sherbet that blend with the dark malts supremely well. Light finish. Great cask beer!
Eher milder Antrunk mit hintergründiger Röstmalznote, sehr trocken. Etwas würziger werdend, im Vordergrund steht nun die trockene und nur leicht würzige Malznote. Weiter trocken, etwas hopfig-bitter, im Abgang erneut herber. Das Röstmalz verharrt auf gegebener Intensität und rutscht dadurch etwas in den Hintergrund. Die permanenten Trockenheit passt überhaupt nicht, eine ausgleichende Note wäre wünschenswert. Ok.. 10/8/8/7/7/7

Beer Festival, 2008. Black beer with a very malty and herbal aroma. The flavour is herbal, malty and lightly dry. Overall a nice malty and herbal beer.
Cask Fluffy greige head, near black, but with ruby highlights. Lots of UK hops, dry, more than roasted notes. Grapey, lively flavours with especially retronasal roasted, and a bit of liquorice. More fresh grapey hops with every sip. In the aftertaste, I get stouty sourness. Light with some wheatlike slickness; not empty. Very close (as intented) to the original Entire Butt; as far as one can access that.

Cask Condtitioned at Oxford Beer Festival ’04. Dark brown / red hinted beer with a slight head. Dark smokey roasted flavours with an acidic sourness running throughout, more an old ale in my book, but maybe this is due to it being the last day of a Festival. Juicy and sweetish on the tongue..

Cask conditioned at the Ipswich Beer Festival 2004, gravity dispense. Listed as a cross between a mild and a porter, which indeed it is - an interesting one, too. Coffee and chocolate aroma. Quite sweet and malty flavour. Not bad at all. chriso (7586) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 28, 2004
It was getting rather late in the proceedings so my critical faculties were becoming impaired to say the least. However, I was compos mentis enough to note this down as an impressive, fruity beer with a smoky, coffee, aroma and a sweetish malty flavour. Very juicy. Certainly does come over as a cross between a mild and a porter. Cask (gravity dispense), Ipswich Beer Festival.

Beautiful mild. Irresistable texture. Lovely subtle rich chocolate flavour, with a touch of banana, raisin and wood. Silky smooth palate, with a long, ever so slightly roasty finish. Everything appeared to be in its right place, the mouthfeel was lovely and everything was in balance. Definitely the surprise and perhaps even the winner of the day, definitely 'mild' in flavour however (Cask- ChelmsfordBF 03')
