Towey1989 (2216) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 16, 2017
Gravity at The Derby Winter Beer Festival. A copper brown colour with a frothy off white head. Aroma of chocolate, caramel, some nuts, slight coffee, a little burnt sugar and subtle dark fruits. Taste of chocolate, caramel, some nuts, slight coffee, a little dark fruits, a hint of vanilla and subtle cookie dough. Light bodied and soft carbonation. A soft, dryish, chocolate brownie kind of bitterness to the finish. I like this, sweet like most milds but chocolatey and nutty with a nice bitter finish. Good.

UPDATED: FEB 6, 2017 Handpull cask at the Coach & Horses, Wellingborough. Very dark brown, almost with purplish notes. Opaque. Cream-tan head leaves lots of lacing. Chocolate malt aroma with a slight medicinal note. Taste is sweet, smooth and malty. Ovaltine notes are slowly overcome by an insistent but polite hop bitterness. Bittersweet balance in the long finish, with blackberry, red grape and charcoal notes. Tasty mild.
