Cask. Very dark brown in colour. Very Malty (lots of chocolate, some coffee, lots of roast malts). Slightly sour fruity (berries). Sweet-bitter in taste. Full-flavoured for ABV. Nice tasty Mild Ale. (2008)

hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 25, 2011
Cask, gravity, at Luton Beer Festival 11. Very dark brown, near black, with a small off white head. Rather a sulphurous aroma.Taste has a little sourness, faint malt and dryness. My first from this brewery, and its not a promising start, Im afraid.

DruncanVeasey (8063) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - FEB 14, 2011
Cask handpull, SIBA Champions Fest 2011, The Canalhouse, Nottingham. Burgundy under a fine beige top. A level of complexity above the other beers Ive had today. Aroma; dung, cigars, dead leaves. Lots of dung. Flavour; burnt nuts, chocolate-dusted leaf matter. Slippery condition. Love a mild when its not.

Cask (GBBF2010)
7 Lovely rich chocolatey aroma.
4 Deep reddy brown, small head
6 Dry burntness, but well short of ashy. Some dark berries for tart sweetness too.
3 Not a simple palate, its quite agresively sharp.
11 Too sharp to hook me as a mild.

One of the best beers in the bar I was volunteering. Nice head and spicy features, not so watery and very dark.

Cask at GBBF 2010. A real dark colour with no real head. Plenty of malt in the aroma with hints of coffee, the taste is all malt with coffeee again with a soft finish.

[email protected] Deep ambery brown colour with small off-white head. Aroma is coffee, caramel, chocolate, roast and some mild notes of ashes. Flavour is ashes, dark dry fruits and some mild caramel malts. A rather balanced and nice mild ale.

SmartYin (2) - Surrey, ENGLAND - JUL 3, 2010 does not count
Almost a perfect mild. Great malt taste with the darker malts being wonderfully balanced. Has plenty of body but still slips down very easily.

Ethereal (2421) - Los Angeles, California, USA - AUG 3, 2008
Cask at Kingston BF, 28th June 2008, with renffisch. Dark mahogany brown and still, with a dark malt and wood smoke nose. Taste is similar and the soft mouthfeel is just what you expect. Classic mild.
