JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - NOV 4, 2012
Cask pour at Jerusalem Tavern, London. Nice rustic-looking pour, a ruddy reddish-brown with a thinnish carbonation. Nose of soft biscuity malts on the nose, a trace of wood, a dollop of hops. Body is nicely full, substantial. A bit more of a bitterness emerges in the taste, but theres certainly a greater emphasis on nutella-type flavors than anything else. Solid stuff, a winning quaffer.

inbirraveritas (1560) - Budapest, HUNGARY - MAR 16, 2017
Bottled, 500 ml (ABV 3.7%). Almost black in colour with a medium sized creamy beige head on its top, which leaves a thin film behind. Malty nose and aroma ruled by caramel, chocolate and coffee underpainted by some fruity hints, mouthfeel is slick. Bittersweet, roasty finish.

Towey1989 (2561) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 13, 2017
Bottle. Pours a deep brown colour with a medium beige head. Aroma of roasted malts, chocolate, toffee, some plum, slight dark berries, a little brown sugar and subtle coffee. Taste of roasted malts, chocolate, some toffee, slight plum, a little dark berries, a hint of coffee and subtle milky sweetness. Light bodied and soft carbonation. A dryish, lightly roasted, chocolate bitterness in the finish. Lots of great malty flavours in this, chocolate, toffee, some fruit and a lightly roasted bitterness. Better body than other milds around 3.7%. Great.

ozzatoadisback (155) - ITALY - JAN 30, 2017
Pours very dark brown (almost black) with a dense white head that shows nice retention and lacing. Aroma has gently roasted and chocolate malts, and maybe a touch of fruitiness. Taste shows a bit of malt sweetness with a gentle milk coffee feel (quite milk stout like). Light chocolate. Gentle roasted malts notes to bring balance. Again, maybe a fruity hint. Sweetness and bitterness are overall both mild and in good balance. Light bodied with light carbonation, easy and decently silky mouthfeel. Very much doing its job in being an enjoyable mild. Quite nice.

john44 (3034) - SW London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 29, 2017
Cask Pint at Jerusalem Tavern, Clerkenwell, London in Mar 2010 - Dark Reddish-Brown in colour. Malty; roasty malts, coffee, liquorice, hint of chocolate. Fruity; sour fruit (berries?). Hoppy; lightly hopped. Roast malty throughout with slightly sour fruit/hop edge. Quite tasty. Drinkable. (2010-03)

Mortlach (2330) - Rome, ITALY - JAN 15, 2017
On tap @Birrifugio Trastevere (Roma), with Pippi. Al naso sentori di malti tostati, caff, cioccolato in polvere e un accenno di erba tagliata. In bocca ha un corpo molto esile, dolce allattacco con finale amaro delicato, bilanciata nel complesso. Corpo leggerissimo, carbonazione soft. Delicata come una carezza.

Grumbo (2541) - Ipswich, Suffolk, ENGLAND - NOV 12, 2016
Cask handpull at the Shadingfield Fox, Suffolk. Pours ruby brown with an off white head. Aroma of light malt, chocolate and touch of sour fruits. Medium to heavy sweetness, light roasted bitterness. Medium body, texture slightly sticky, soft carbonation. Dry fruity finish. Better cask than bottled.

Swaroga (2213) - Warszawa, POLAND - AUG 5, 2016
Despite the fact this beer is watery with very low alcohol ...this is a decent brew. Soft and creamy mouth feel, delicate carbonation. Aroma is mostly nuts, bread skin, some little coffee and grains. The flavor is filled with juicy malts. Good grain backbone, almost toffee and coffee like. Very easy to drink and satisfying. Will come back.
