Black smooth on the palate and slightly bitter. Dry roast finish. TheGrandMaster (2335) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - FEB 11, 2006
Half pint gravity fed at the Battersea Beer Fest, dark ruby with an off-white frothy head. A sweet caramal aroma - very warming. Very smooth in the mouth - goes down easily. Subtle caramal in the flavour with a nice bitter finish. Mungo (2470) - Southampton, Hampshire, ENGLAND - FEB 2, 2006
BCA (from Bitter Virtue, BBE Aug 06). Coffee and chocolate roasty notes with fruity (blackberry?) qualities. Quite dry with a fruity acidity - leads to a slight clash with sweeter choc flavours. Ungstrup (38958) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - DEC 4, 2005
[Cask at GBBF 2005] An almost opaque red-brown beer with a thin brown head. The aroma is sweet with light notes of roasted malt and caramel. The flavor is sweet with notes of roasted malt and caramel. A lovely mild. chriso (7536) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 13, 2005
Very dark and almost opaque. Some coffee notes in the aroma. Mainly fruity, but quite full bodied. Some ashy character. Smooth and easy drinking. Cask (gravity dispense), Reading Beer Festival, April 2005.

Reading Beer Festival. Rounded mild with roasty flavours and fruit flavours. Not bad. haddonsman (1234) - Derby, Derbyshire, ENGLAND - MAY 4, 2005
Cask at Babington Arms (JDW) Mild Festival. Another wonderfully fresh tasting mild, juicy stuff, fruits outdid the roasts but it was still a convincing pint. duff (5486) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 3, 2005

BF. Classy mild. Light roasted malt and chcolate flavours, subtle as it should be, but really well balanced. Roasty, with a surprisingly long finish.
UPDATED: JUN 18, 2005 Black with a beige head. Ashy tar aroma. Taste is similar, some roast but quite chalky. A bit unbalanced for me. Re-Rate: Light roast flavour, a little chalky. Bit unrefined, but still a nice mild. Previously 3/3/5/3/8 Hildigöltur (5103) - København, DENMARK - APR 14, 2005
[Cask conditioned] Beautiful dark reddish brown coloured. Sweet and malty flavour. Flavourful and tasty.
