August 2016 - Cask handpull at GBBF 2016, as ’Nottingham Rock Mild’. Opaque black, foamy brown head. Aroma is molasses and chocolate. Body is smooth with soft carbonation. Taste is chocolate, soft toffee malts, milky fudge. Lovely balance and flavours. Delivers a lot at the ABV. A very good mild indeed. (3.7)

theprof (1242) - Nottingham, Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - JAN 6, 2016
UPDATED: MAY 18, 2016 Cask at the Crown. Smells yeasty and mealy to me. Pours mahogany dark with cream scum some lacing. Tastes of roasted malt and heather honey with a great tang on the palate. A classic. Bemused that this is my first rating as it’s not the first taste.

Really decent with contemporary citrus and blackcurrant undercurrents leaning towards bipartisan (black IPA!). Some coffee grounds; slight tang of sour. Really good.
