Bottle. My first from the brewery and what an impressive debut. Black with a small head and so much body from a relatively weak beer. Lingering maltiness with chocolate in the background.Clear appearance and complex flavour. Proves that you haven’t got to have a mind blowing amount of alcohol to produce a strong flavour.Impressive.

Cask, The Pub, Leicester, 20/05/11. Pitch, grey-beige collar, copper at the edges. Aroma of coffee, pistachios dropped in a toaster. Excellent flavour; black coffee and black chocolate drizzled on decaying leaves; flicks of ash. Finely-sieved and insinuating mild full of rusty chocolate, schwarz-like, stouty character. Amen.

Bottle from hop hideout, sheffield. Dark brown with beige head. Nice fruity malts and some woody dry flavours. It’s dry and bitter, quite drinkable though. Slight Prickly carbonation and considering its strength it’s body is not too thin. Impressive brewing. skortila (5970) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - MAY 29, 2015
Bottled. 50cl sample. The aroma has cocoa, milk chocolate, roast. Black coloured beer with a thin, lasting, beige head. The taste is light bitter, little sweet, has nice creamy chocolate, bit roast. Medium bodied for its ABV. Very easy drinking beer. Pretty good. JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - SEP 20, 2012
Cask pull at Craft Beer Co. Man, this was quite a velvety, roasty, deceptively mild beer. Looking and smelling and tasting for all the world like a very well rendered foreign stout, it nonetheless achieved some of the sessionable, understated qualities of a mild. Sweet flavors were present, but dry and roasty won the day for sure. Very impressive at 3.7%. AshtonMcCobb (6871) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUL 3, 2013
On cask @ the Stockbridge Tap. This was the beer of the afternoon. I thought it was somewhere between a mild and a brown ale in character. Some of the chocolate across aroma and taste but also a beautiful nuttiness. Well balanced palate - really enjoyable. jj0076 (31) - York, North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 16, 2014
Dark mild. Good session beer at 3.7%. Makes a nice change from all the hoppy IPA style beers flooding the market.
