UPDATED: AUG 8, 2008 Cask at GBBF ’06. Near black with a beige head. Little aroma. Sweet, milky mild. Faint bitter finish. Not much happening. Cask at GBBF ’08. Thanks to Christian for this. Sweet buttery aroma this time. Toffee sweetness nicely balanced with sourness and a bitter hint at the end. Rated: 6,3,6,4,12; 3.1 Nekronos (4175) - Xalapa, MEXICO - APR 20, 2006
Nice flavour, veyr dark, but not as a stout, probably a little different that other milds I have had. Very good this one. DJMonarch (9179) - Northwich, Cheshire, ENGLAND - FEB 25, 2006

Dark red coloured with a very fruity aroma. Slightly dry lasting hop finish. Ungstrup (37677) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - FEB 6, 2006
[Cask at GBBF 2005] A red-brown beer with a dense creamy brown head. The aroma is sweet roasted with light notes of chocolate, while the flavor besides the sweet rostyness contains light notes of metal and lemon, and leads to a dry bitter end. peter48er (185) - Liverpool, Merseyside, ENGLAND - JAN 31, 2006
Cask dispense @ The Feshfield Hotel, Formby Beer Festival 2006. Tried this early on the 1st night of the festival by which time it was already flowing out.
A tremendous dark ale, with some sweetness and strong malty flavour. Fruity, bitter finish. A stout/mild/dark drinkers must have, in excellent condition. Probably to demanding for your average pale/bitter drinker not prepared to experiment. Their loss my gain!

Cask condioned, GBBF 2005:
This beer reminds me of a unusually thin and watery Schwarzbier. Not a good beer. jibber (3) - ENGLAND - MAY 27, 2005 does not count
Admittedly only for Mild fanatics who prefer the more powerful style, this is a rich and full bodied beer with loads of rich, nutty flavours and a long finish. I’ve had this in St Just and at the Peterborough Beer festival, both times on excellent form. DanielBrown (4502) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - APR 25, 2005
Hand pulled at the Wellington, Birmingham. Black, with a white fluffy (yet smooth) head. A hint of berry and Milk Tray strawberry cream sweetness. Fluffy mouthfeel. Flavour is too soft. Pleasant, but not strong enough, although as I write this and realise that it’s a Mild, I’m loath to criticise it too much. DeepBlack (386) - Derby, Derbyshire, ENGLAND - OCT 6, 2004
Served by hand pump from The Alex in Derby, Tis is ery dark brown in colour & with no sparkler had only a small head. The taste was strong for a Mild & had hints of coffee & coco in. Very full boddied, but perhaps a little to full boddied really duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - SEP 16, 2004
