Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - FEB 3, 2012
On cask at The Bow Bar. Pours a dark ruby colour with a decent light tan head. Aroma of Weetabix malt and alcohol. Similar malty flavour with mild carbonation and an oily mouth-feel. mjs (7510) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JAN 27, 2012
(Cask at Kuikka, 20120127) The beer poured dark brown and clear. Its head was medium sized and white. Aroma had roasted malts and chocolate. Palate was medium bodied with low carbonation. Flavours were roasted malts, burnt malts, sweetness, hops and bitterness. Aftertaste was malty, burnt and bitter. A tasty mild. ndon (857) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 4, 2011

Very dark brown beer, light just passes through. Seme dry palate. Low carbonation. Roasty malt and bittering hop, not much else. A bit of an effort.
Cask at the Magpie, pours a dark red-brown with a mid-coarse beige head and aromas of malt and coffee. Roasty and faintly bitter on the palate, with hints of chocolate and an underlying red-fruit sweetness, and the roastiness persisting into the aftertaste.

Cask at Waters Green Tavern Macclesfield. Pleasant and drinkable. It’s a dark ruby brown with a thin pale brown head. Thin mouthfeel. Little sweet caramel nutty flavour with some roasted malts. planky84 (3345) - Lee, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 7, 2011
Cask at the ’Grape and Grain’ beer festival. Reddish brown pour with a white head. Berries, caramel and a little wood aroma. Nuts, berries, chocolate and some hop flavours. Fruity, bitter finish. Vladivostok (490) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - JUL 15, 2010
Darkish mild with a roasty flavour. This type of mild always strikes me as being neither fish nor fowl - not dry or strong enough to be a porter nor sweet and caramely enough for a ’traditional’ mild. Okay though, but not my favourite. FatPhil (16647) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUN 12, 2010
Cask (Gallows Bird, Espoo, Real Ale Festival 2003)rickgordon (3878) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - APR 14, 2010
Very deep red, lovely bready head. Rich sweet aroma, caramelly and
chocolatey. Lovely smooth palate, carbonation low, and softened by the
sweetness. Chocolatey taste. Good mild, just what you want from 3.8%.
(Rating discovered while packing stuff for my move in 2010!)
From cask at Oliver Twist, Stockholm.
Dark brown colour with expected vague head. Cocoa-cola nose along with dark fruits, red apples and light sourish. Light chocolate features in flavour and light toasty with apples again. Light bodied and bit astringent and tad phenolic with low bitterness.
