Cask handpull at The Crosse Keys Bishopsgate as ’Nethergate Black Shadow’, says 4.7% on the pump clip. Almost opaque black with a red hue, very little head, just a tan ring. Aroma is chocolate malt and ash. Body is smooth and rounded, almost chewy, with low carbonation. Taste is molasses, dates, light metallics, flat cola, some ashy dark chocolate notes. Sweet and rich but does have a roastiness offsetting this. Above average for style but a half is plenty for me. MissPxx (991) - Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 11, 2015
Very woody smokey aroma. Lovely dark appearance with a creamy beige head. Really caramel flavour with string caramel aftertones.

Cask (handpump) at GBBF, August 2006. Deep chestnut brown colour with a thin beige head. Light malt aroma - more grainy than roasty. Reasonably dry on the palate with ample nutty and caramel character. Decent fruity mouthfeel, not too thin with a touch of bite on the finish. An extremely drinkable and wholesome mild. Not sure how this differs from the regular Priory Mild but I found it rather more enjoyable.

Good, this guyus brew nice beers. The taste of the malts was nice, nice foam, not the favourite of some others, but it is not a law. I like the aftertaste and the aroma, not tiring after. kook (2033) - Perth, Western Australia, AUSTRALIA - SEP 6, 2006

Cask conditioned - handpump - GBBF. A very dark brown coloured beer. The aroma has some slight maltiness but not much else. The taste had some slightly stale roasted malt, and an oily character. It was however a little farty which, of course, let it down. harrisoni (18578) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - AUG 7, 2006
Cask at GBBF 2006. Very dark brown with disappearing beige head. Quite a bit of caramel. Quite a decent dark mild. Some dark malts. Decent depth of flavour. Bit of grainy powder on end. Nice mild. RoyceH (1199) - Hesperange, LUXEMBOURG - AUG 6, 2006
