downender (8584) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - DEC 10, 2016
Cask-conditioned at the Green Man, Bristol 1/12/2016. Deep brown, with a slight, off-white, head. Toasty beer, with a touch of chocolate sweetness, leafy hops and a moderately bitter finish. Fine.

kwik-lime (1915) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 6, 2016
Cask at the Antelope in Surbiton. A little coffee, some nut, roasted malt, very drinkable. Pleasant, a bit more like a mild.

Mr_Pink_152 (4887) - Lincoln, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - AUG 23, 2016
Tried at the Queens Head, Kings Cross. I would have called this a Mild every day of the week. Dark reddish brown colour slight tan head. Aroma light coffee and roasted malt. Taste slight sweet fruity to roasted bitter. Thinnish body.

On cask at Monsal Head Hotel. Appearance - deep amber to red with a creamy head. Nose - toffee, nuts and sweet malt. Taste - soggy bran flakes (not in a bad way), honeycomb . Palate - Overall - this is good and Iíd say itís more of a Scottish Ale in style.

mr_h (5434) - Ayr, SCOTLAND - OCT 2, 2015
Cask by gravity at Ayrshire Beer Festival, Concert Hall, Troon (1 Oct 2015), coffee aroma, blood red, brown, thin bubbly head, no lacing, coffee flavour with a dry, bitter malty finish.

3.4
jjsint (3007) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - AUG 27, 2015
Gravity cask at the Draymanís Son, Ely. Very dark brown, a bit flat-looking with no head to speak of. Coffee and charcoal aroma. Focussed and intense. Taste starts sweet but the burnt coffee bitter pervades just after the initial sip. Bodyís a bit thin and flat but itís not the end of the world. I like this but... a bitter? Are you sure?

3.3
evergreen0199 (3323) - Northwood, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 11, 2015
Cask at Ealing Beer Festival 2015, Ealing, London. A dark ruby brown coloured pour with a medium off white bubbly head on top. Roasty, malty, chocolate, slight sweetness.

Very nice beet. Slight coffee, almost coffee like. Lovely indeed. Easy drinking and mild

3.2
The_Osprey (7886) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 10, 2015
Cask at Gravity Station. A cola coloured dark brown, very little head, dotted lacing. Aroma is light ash, hints of seaside made me wonder whether the glass was dirty. Body is medium, smooth, touch of carbonation. Taste is thin malts, hint of coffee, light metallics, smoke, some astringent hop, soft bitterness. Iíd call this a mild / bitter hybrid.
