3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle picked up at Darts Farm, Topsham, Nr Exeter, Devon 12-11-06 had this evening of 13-11-06. Yet another very good mild along with the Tryst one that I’ve had this week. Stronger than normal for a mild, but poured and looked similar, more intense in the flavour department, with bitter chocolate and coffee in the mix, very good.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
BCA (from Bitter Virtue, BBE Dec 06). Good roasty aroma - liquorice, dusty chocolate with some sweet malt aromas. Some sweetness on the body but not too much balanced by fruitiness and a hint of roasty flavours in the finish. Quite full but still easy drinking.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Roasted caramel, chocolate and berrylike aroma, fizzlesticks. Red chestnut, foamy lacing amber head - pretty.
Initially quite fizzy - need to beat the co2 out. Hereafter sweet honeyish, earthy/minerally and roasted coffee notes with a distinct fruity afterplay. Body feels light - probably due to carbonation.
Must be the most interresting mild to date :-)

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A hazy brown beer with a thin brown head. The aroma is sweet malty and slightly roasty, while the flavor is plain sweet malty, I find no hints of roast. But still an OK mild.
