3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle BB4 April 2008. The bottle had a picture of a man fishing. I might have dropped a point for a pink label with a stork delivering a baby. Very thin head, just enough big bubbles to cover half the surface. Very dark brown. Aroma of smoke, brown sugar and wood. Tastes like the scents. Woody sweetness upfront morphs into some strong smoke by the finish. Chewy. A Brown with some interesting light complexity.

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.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20

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.
