Cask; Regular. Also available bottle conditioned.
A refreshing well balanced dark mild, whose chocolate and fruity flavours compliment its roasted long bitter finish. Primed using a combination of rich dark sugars, this beer is a taste sensation.

Cask. Reddish-black mild punches above its weight. Malt & roast flavours. Chocolate. Fruity (dark fruits). Slightly sour taste. Good. (2008)

theprof (1144) - Nottingham, Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - FEB 5, 2017
Cask. Pours black/dark brown with tan foam top. Aroma malty with some dark fruits. The taste has caramel malts with licorice notes. Could not detect chocolate. There is a languor on the palate but a flat one with no marked bitter finish. But one should bear in mind that this is a 3.4% mild and for that abv there’s plenty to consider.

gowdy (1115) - Erskine, SCOTLAND - JUL 23, 2016
Cask pint at The Monkey Walk (JDW) in Coalville. Very dark, maybe a touch of red.

3.3
jjsint (3436) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - MAR 12, 2016
Gravity cask at the 2016 Leicester Beer Festival. Dark brown with only a suggestion of head. Small amount of visible carbonation. Red berry, hazelnut and cola in the aroma. Nice but predictable. Taste is better: sweet but with a gentle roasted malt quality. Sweet Ovaltine finish. Fuller body than most milds. Nice.

ShivanDragon (4504) - Leeuwarden, NETHERLANDS - MAR 4, 2016
500ml, bruin tot zwart, met minimale beige kraag. aroma van mout, geroosterde mout, chocolade, vanille, graan. smaken van chocolade, hopjesvla, mout, dun, licht zuur, vanille, desert, lichte koffie, poeder cacao, bruine suiker, aardig maar ook niet meer dan dat.

Gentle_Ben (55) - Rutland, ENGLAND - DEC 30, 2015
Classic mild. Lots of malty flavours but as per all Grainstore beers no hops to speak of. Relatively pleasant as a session beer but too thin for the style and I would not go out of my way to drink this again.

MustangMarkF (253) - Coventry, West Midlands, ENGLAND - OCT 20, 2015
500ml Bottle. Pours a dark reddish brown with a thin head. Aroma of chocolate and has a fruity and caramel taste- very drinkable.
