Cask half-pint at The Crown Inn, Oakengates on 28th Apr 2017. Most likely the beer of the festival for me, loved the richness and flavour. Black bodied, thin beige head. Loads going on in both the nose and taste: coffee, treacle, chocolate, singed toffee and a light piney bitterness. Not as sweet as my description may indicate, this was a well balanced and tasty Mild. theprof (931) - Nottingham, Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - DEC 15, 2016
Cask. Intriguing aroma that modulates from smoked wood and toast to begin and then reveals coffee and chocolate malts. Impressive. Pours very dark brown with tan cream top and ruby notes. Taste is creamier than I was anticipating with caramel and coffee to the fore and thus sweet but the finish is more blended. It stays on the palate and could cloy but overall a fine mild and for my money the best of the Muirhouse range currently. Grumbo (2819) - Ipswich, Suffolk, ENGLAND - NOV 26, 2016

On cask at Neptune Inn, Chesterfield - Solid ruby brown body, thick two finger off white head. Nose is smokey, roast nuts, coffee and a bit of chocolate. Taste is a little more robust than this piss weak milds the Midlands put out, bit of treacle at the end makes each sip a good one. davidtjm (1074) - Berlin, GERMANY - MAR 6, 2015
Cask. Pour is black, aroma is toffee, nutty. Taste is toffee, malty, gentle earthy bitterness, rather thin. Nice gegwilson (3671) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - FEB 15, 2015
Gravity at the National Winter Ales Festival in Derby. Pours ruby with a thin cream head. Pleasant coffee aroma. Light roasty coffee flavour. Thin body. A nice easy drinking mild. jjsint (2988) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - DEC 22, 2014
Cask at George’s, March. Impenetrable black with a wisp of off-white head. Liquorice, slate and coffee aroma. Bittersweet initial taste, but you becomes aware of the sourness as the pint goes on. Almost Guinness-like. Bitter-sour finish with a grainy coffee taste. Do I detect pork scratching a, or would that be the perfect companion to this drink? At any rate, one to seek out.
