Probably what a muddy bog in the Land of Chocolate would taste like. Supping from all the rainwater between the Malteser-cobbled roads. Noice. Ethereal (2421) - Los Angeles, California, USA - MAR 2, 2008
Gravity cask at the Battersea Beer Festival, 8th Feb 2008. Black as night (well, not quite, but an exceedingly dark brown) with an aroma of molasses, caramel and pine needles. Caramel malt rules the flavour with molasses and milk chocolate on either hand. The mouthfeel is spot on - it penetrates to every corner of your mouth. A wonderful dark mild!

Some roast aroma. Beige head. Dark red coloured smooth on the palate with a fruity blackcurrant flavour. A hint of dryness in a lasting malt finish. Spiesy (2338) - Sydney, Greater London, AUSTRALIA - MAR 5, 2004
Cask Conditioned, at the Wenlock Arms, London. SilkTork (5806) - Southampton, United Kingdom, Hampshire, ENGLAND - JUN 19, 2003
Black with a thin brown head. Super smooth and silky. Did I say silky and smooth, smooth and silky. I had two have second pint to be sure. Very easy drinking. Slight chocolate notes, nothing harsh at all. Lucky I went actually, because there will be none left tomorrow. I stood at the bar whilst no few then six pints were served and I get the priority running.
UPDATED: JUL 27, 2003 Gravity Cask, Catford Beer Festival. Huge aroma of seaweed. Nice dark colour with natural head. Unusual flavour for a mild - some soy sauce and vanilla, touch of tannic oak. Tasty and refreshing. [3.6]

Cask at the Brown Cow, BIngley. Black with off white head. Very smooth with a nutty, roasted and mild taste and quite a full mouthfeel. Good mild. TheGrandMaster (2335) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - AUG 13, 2006
UPDATED: AUG 17, 2006 Gravity fed pint at The Bricklayer’s Arms in Putney (London), a very dark black with a bubbly tan head. A very subtle malt aroma. Very smooth with a good malty finish. Sweet cola-like flavours. Easy to have another. DonMagi (5593) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 2, 2007
Aroma has hints of sulphur, roasty and choclate malt, hints of caramel. Taste is similar nice and rich hints of spice amoung the chocolate malt. EFC1878 (315) - Manchester, Greater Manchester, ENGLAND - NOV 30, 2008
Cask at the Coach and Horses, Manchester. Very dark ruby in colour with beige head. Slight roast malt aroma, pleasant smooth taste with hints of vanilla and a balancing dryness from the malts. A very good flavoursome mild. kempicus (343) - Bakewell, Derbyshire, ENGLAND - MAR 20, 2009
Had this on cask at the bricklayers arms. Pours a dark espresso with a disappearing head....not the best for looks but promises a lot more...sweet treacle toffee coupled with reduced blackberries. Sweet treacle and coffee flavours abound in this really well crafted mild....Bliss!
