Cask at PoW, Farnborough. Light chocolate aroma with a boiled veg edge. Dark cola brown. Thin bubbly beige head. Initially a light sweet malty choolate. Does develop a bitter coffee berry streak to keep things interesting. Light bodied and thin. Average carbonation. Abrupt finish. Decent mild. john44 (3341) - SW London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 18, 2017
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)

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 it’s not a promising start, I’m afraid. DruncanVeasey (8260) - Nr 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 I’ve had today. Aroma; dung, cigars, dead leaves. Lots of dung. Flavour; burnt nuts, chocolate-dusted leaf matter. Slippery condition. Love a mild when it’s not.

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, it’s 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. joe19612 (3033) - camberley, Surrey, ENGLAND - AUG 30, 2010
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. oh6gdx (26487) - Vasa, FINLAND - AUG 24, 2010

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.

Almost a perfect mild. Great malt taste with the darker malts being wonderfully balanced. Has plenty of body but still slips down very easily.
