Bottle 50 cl. Courtesy of madmitch76. Pours a clear brown with an orange hue and an off-white hue. Rustic, woody "Old Ale" aroma. Medium body, skewed maltiness, nutty. Rather hoppy finish. 231109 hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 14, 2009
Cask at Bankers Draft (JDW), Bedford, in ’Spoons BF ’09. Dark brown with a small off white head. Buttery aroma. Taste is thin oily malt with background hints of ashtray and treacle tart. Slight bitterness. Quite nice, but I’m not as ecstatic as the GBBF judges. Miksu (5053) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - NOV 7, 2009

Dark amber to brown color. There are hints of roasted malt, both in the aroma and flavor; the mouthfeel is quite dry, the body stronger than the average, and the dominant flavor is dark chocolate. The final is chocolatey, dryish as well. Pleasant.
Cask at GBBF ’09, dark brown with a large yellowish head. Just a light nose that has touches of caramal. A big mouthfeel, lots of malt with some coffee, some chocolate, and some smokiness. Impressively complex for a Mild. It is obviously in good form. I love it. RPillsbury (115) - Nottingham, Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - AUG 7, 2009
Cask at the GBBF 2009. An appropriate beer for my 100th rating with it being the Champion beer at the festival this year. It’s a nice dark red beer with oak and wood chip aroma with maybe a touch of dark fruits in the background. Nice full palate and overall very well balanced. The flavours are fruity and hoppy with a lovely, long, bitter finish. Excellent and especially flavourful for a mild. Christian (13670) - Odense, DENMARK - JUL 30, 2009
Brown with a small off-white head. Fruity aroma with chocloate notes. Dry and fruity flavour with a roasted finish anders37 (26641) - Malmö, SWEDEN - APR 6, 2009

500ml bottle. Dark chestnut in colour with some reddish undertones. Big, but short-lived, tan head and plenty of carbonation. Aroma of blackcurrants, sweetish doughy malt and hazelnuts. Flavour was also sweet, with lots of berry fruit, some roastiness and a soft, bitter finish. Very drinkable.
