Handpull cask at the Half Moon, Hitchin. Translucent brown with a loose cream-coloured head. Quite lively considering the dispense method. Liquorice abounds in the aroma but there’s also a hint of Robusta coffee. Taste is sweet but there’s a bitterness in the malt that gives it body, depth and balance. Some bitter sourness in the finish, with more roast coffee. Body’s a bit watery. Hovers around average for me: tasty but not all that lively. theprof (931) - Nottingham, Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - DEC 17, 2016
Cask. Aroma is roasted malts. Pours dark brown with tan top that yields broken lacing. Taste is nicely complex with roasted malt coffee and bread notes. It shows what a 3.9% beer can give and why mild is a style worth keeping. BlackHaddock (7232) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - OCT 4, 2016
Half-pint, hand-pulled on 30th Sep 2016 at The Crown Inn, Oakengates. Dark brown with a red hue, tanned topping. Smooth bodied, slick almost, aroma and taste had hedgerow fruits in a malty pot; a trace of hop bitterness in the finish. Decent. jmgreenuk (9313) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - SEP 4, 2016
Cask at Ale Caesar, Margate. Poured a clear reddish brown with little life. The aroma is roasty malt, dry coffee, light spice. The flavour is moderate liqourice bitter with a smooth, flavourful, roasty, light dry liqourice, light hop bitter palate. Medium bodied with soft carbonation. jackl (8022) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - AUG 16, 2016
Cask @ GBBF 2014. Deep brown pour with a small head. Nose of cherry cola. Baked bread. Raisin and milk chocolate. Similar flavor. Lightly tart / sweet red fruit skin. Earthy toastiness. Just a bit sweet. Light body, a bit dull on the tongue. Solid.

Cask conditioned at The Albion, Cromer, Norfolk. Very dark brown with cream head. There was a medicinal tone to this along with full roasty malts, some sweetness and a light nuttiness. Lingering palate, fullish. It’s okay. alfa (14) - Canterbury, ENGLAND - MAY 27, 2016
One of my favourite beers of the moment. Almost black, strong aroma and initial taste of soft liquorice which surrenders to dark malt and light hops. Fades a bit on the palette but V Nice and involves dangerously short time to the second pint. ManVsBeer (10264) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - FEB 18, 2016
Cask @ The Grove, Huddersfield. Very dark with a small off-white bubbly head. Crisp in the main with a washy roasted malt aroma taste that’s very light. More stated in its nose. niquillis (2679) - Stoke on Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 13, 2015
Cask at Man of Kent, Rochester. Pours black brown with creamy tan head. Some roast, hint of choc, fruity, light hop. Cracking mild. MissPxx (970) - Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 26, 2015
Gorgeous dark appearance. Slightly chocolatey. Deeply bitter and caramel tasting.
