Probably what a muddy bog in the Land of Chocolate would taste like. Supping from all the rainwater between the Malteser-cobbled roads. Noice.

Leighton (19188) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 11, 2016
Cask at the Thirty-Nine Steps - Broadstairs. Pours brown-black with a light, foamy tan head. Very faint cocoa in the nose, also some toasted toffee. Light sweet flavour with darkened bread, faint roast, hints of dark berries. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Basic dark malts in the finish, with hints of dark fruits, berries, mild cocoa. A very simple mild.

Scopey (13006) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 9, 2016
Cask at the Royal Albert, New Cross. It pours clear dark brown with a light tan head. The aroma is brown bread, fruit cake, malt loaf and toasted malts. The taste is mellow, rich, toasted malt, brown bread, touch of dried fruits, big malt loaf character and some caramel. Light body and soft carbonation. Pretty OK for the style, but I was hoping for a touch more oomph.

imdownthepub (13557) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 6, 2015
Cask conditioned at Headington Beer Festival #14, Masons Arms, Headington, Oxford. Dark brown with tan head. I couldnt believe that I had never come across this beer before, a good example of a northern mild, richly roasted malt lead beer with a light background bitterness, hints of fruitiness. Good stuff.
