Bottle. Very dark brown with beige head that fades fast. Aroma is very light roasted malt. Flavour is also light roasted malts, chocolate but a little thin, little watery. Good bitter balance, though.

I love this beer, 3.4% but still decent body, Grainy roasty dry chocolate dominates the flavour and it’s awesome! Blends wonderfully with the hops, well balanced, and very smooth finish. A classic English dark mild. BrewMetal (2) - Indiana, USA - AUG 24, 2014 does not count
Pored a dark brown with ruby highlights. Clear with a tan head that quickly disolved. Hints of chocolate and moderate maltiness, also some background hints of raisin, no hop aroma. Light bodied with low carbonation, hints of chocolate and some wet papery oxidation, probably due to age. Overall a nice mild, would like to try a fresher version. chrisv10 (18234) - DENMARK - APR 9, 2014

@ Greens Discount Liquor / Columbia SC --- Clear very dark ruby with a tiny rim head, no lace. Taste is light malt that quickly into the palate where a thin veneer of roasted chocolate adds body to the brew. The finish is more smooth than hoppy. This is the epitome of session beer. I could drink several 17 oz. bottles in one sitting without missing a beat. Also good with cheese and white crackers, and it even works well with sliders from White Castle. Very successful at what it attempts to be. Mr_Pink_152 (5433) - Lincoln, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - MAR 9, 2014
500ml bottle from b&m. Dark almost black colour with a thin white head. Aroma of chocolate and dark fruit. but with a nice amount of black cherry and black berry as well. Flavour is also chocolate with cherry and toasted malt. ReV2 (178) - Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - MAR 9, 2014
A classic mild at the right gravity sampled on the first hot day of the year. Roasted aroma, big creamy head, the taste belies its strength. Black cherry, hints of coffee and chocolate, toasted muffins, really nice. RichTheVillan (8160) - Birmingham, West Midlands, ENGLAND - FEB 28, 2014

NWAF 23 Jan 13. Svart. Lavt skum. Bra sjokoladearoma. Vassen smak. Tørr ettersmak. Bra for alkoholstyrken, dog.
