Bottle; pours dark brown with a tan head; aroma is toasted malt with nuts and a hint of chocolate; taste is similar with toasted malt, chocolate and hints of nuts; finish is sweet; okay but a little watery AndrewC (373) - Canterbury, Kent, ENGLAND - JAN 6, 2011
Bottle conditioned. I love the fact that the bottle says itís export strength at 3.9%. Rock on! Smells of chocolate and vine tomatoes. Tastes of slightly roasted, melon juice. Very soft in the mouth. Not bad. jvhemert (397) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - APR 24, 2011

Bottled, 500ml from Waitrose, Witney. Black with cream head. Thinner than the cask version, there is still a darkly roasted malt though but masked a little by a wet cardboard type flavour, some fruitiness. Lacks some depth. Average.DSG (14685) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - JUN 19, 2013

Bottled, 500ml from Morrisons in Banbury. Black with brown head. Smooth and fruity flavours, some liquorice and hints of chocolate amalgamate into a very decent bottled mild. Easy drinking while retaining flavours.
Bottle sample at a tasting at the Beer & Beyond shop. Thanks troubles. Dark brown color with a huge beige head. Aroma of malt, dark bread, a bit of toastiness, nutty notes, a bit of caramel and some earthy hops. Sweetish malty flavor with some toastiness, caramel hints and a dry finish, slightly bitter and earthy. Light to medium-bodied. beerandbeyond (708) - ISRAEL - JUL 5, 2013
Clear dark brown with red hues and a big dark beige head.
Ashy nose, with nuts, mild roast, earth and faint cocoa.

Thick creamy tan head. Clear black pour. A nice brew. I never drunk milds 20 years ago as they were almost extinct when I started drinking. Iím glad the style is making a comeback due to Camra. A nice session beer.
Bottle. Black with a red hue. Aroma is creamy malt. Flavour is Cadbury fruit and nut, creamy finish, thin texture.
