An outstanding dark mild that I tried at the Blatt on nitro. Smooth with a dense malty sweetness.

Carlisle (642) - Pennsylvania, USA - APR 22, 2016
Draft (nitro). Pours dark brown with light tan head and substantial lacing. Toast and light chocolate malt aroma. Chocolate and malt up front followed by coffee and more malt. Lighter mouthfeel than expected; more substantial body would be better. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Atom (2256) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - FEB 24, 2016
On nitro at surly pours dark brown with huge creamy khaki head. Aroma is dry and earthy saw dust, light toast, caramel, light cacoa, and hop. Light flavors, toasted bread, dry caramel, light milky chocolate, and a dry hop presence. Light and drinkable, nice lively carbonation with the nitro.

corby112 (2804) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 9, 2015
Pours a dark golden copper color with bright mahogany edges and a two finger off-white head that slowly settles into a thick, lasting cap. Great retention, taking a while to settle with large streaks of soapy lacing clinging to the glass on the way dow. Somewhat mild aroma with chocolate malt sweetness and a very faint floral hop presence. Earthy, soily hops followed by light toast, caramel and toffee. Not much else happening. True to style but not very exciting. Light body thats pretty watered down with faint earthy/grassy hop character countered by slightly toasted light malt sweetness. Grass, pine needle and faint resins followed by caramel, toffee and chocolate sweetness. Somewhat true to style but kind of one dimensional and boring. Hops could be stronger for an American interpretation and the mouthfeel and malts presence could be more interesting for a British version, especially on cask. Unfortunately, this is caught somewhere in between. Not bad, but I wouldnt order this again.

piscator34 (2385) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - MAY 12, 2015
Draft. Brown in colour with moderate carbonation. Aromas are of nougat, toasted nuts, and cocoa powder. Flavors are of pale malt, malted chocolate candies, and a bit of orchard fruit notes from the yeast. Slick bodied. Serviceable, but could have used more hop flavor.

Obfuscate (539) - Minneapolis, - APR 12, 2015
On tap at Surly. Not bad for a low ABV brown ale but least favorite I tried at the brew house

markducommun (1000) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 22, 2015
Deep red mahogany, light tan head. Corn, light grains on the nose. A bit like Crispex. Sweetish, a touch of bitterness. Quite light, but fairly chewy. Medium finish. Pretty good.
