More a porter than an ale. Very flavoursome with earthy tones and toasted marshmallow & coffee out of the fridge, but the flavours mature as it warms. The head doesn't last and looks more like coke. Leaves a dry palate asking for more to whet the whistle.

Dark red color with minimal head
Malty aroma but with a passionfruit note.
Very mild bitterness and thin body but perfectly drinkable. ippopotamo36 (2497) - Rome, ITALY - MAR 24, 2016
Bottle courtesy of Marko and ogivlado in Zagreb-Croatia, many thanks guys. Pours black with reddish highlights, little off-white foam. Nose: dusty, English accent, a bit yeasty too, fresh paint. Mouth: far too watery, a smokey note, dry end with some burnt malt notes. Different Mild Ale. ogivlado (7955) - Zagreb, CROATIA - MAR 10, 2016
Bottled 500ml. -Courtesy of Marko, shared with him and ippopotamo36. Dark brown coloured with a red glare, small off-white head, caramelish malty nose. Quite weak taste with almost lack of everything; some light malt, weak caramel and rather dry finish. Marko (5931) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - MAR 6, 2016
Enormous thanks to Krešo for lugging this in from New Zealand. Poured a darker brown/red body with good carbonation and a small thick off white head. Aroma... caramel, slightly fruity, malty. Taste... empty, dry caramelly taste, raisins, very light bitterness. Seems like very very hard water, the finish is insanely dry, the aftertaste awful.

Bière légère et passable. Le goût est trop léger même si les note de chocolat dont interessante. Debut de bouche qui vommence bien et disparition rapide de toute possibilité de continuation. Fort déçu. ..

Tasteless and forgettable. No aroma and the sugary taste dominated the malt. Thin and flat - good for getting drunk on, I guess heyden (137) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - FEB 14, 2015
Winding down the evening with this dark brew. Dark in appearance but light and sessionable. Malty chocolate but not too complex. Easy drinking material, missing the stomach curdling acidity that accompany so many dark beers waiake (606) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - NOV 29, 2014
bottle poured dark & lacy choco malt aroma taste is fresh malty bitter & mildly dry good creamy flavours a great session beer Earplay (51) - NEW ZEALAND - MAY 28, 2014
Had the ’Mild Dark Ale’ version. Nice roasty choc malt aroma. Hops seem at odds with the malt forward style. Thin bodied, poor head retention. joe19612 (3033) - camberley, Surrey, ENGLAND - MAR 8, 2014
Bottle. Pours a very dark brown colour, fresh malty aroma with a light roasted taste with a sweet finish.
