Clear, very deep brown body with a small, short-lived, frothy, beige head that leaves little lacing. Moderate aroma of dark caramel and roasted malt. Quite strong flavour of burnt sugar, roasted malt, and dark fruits. Moderate to light sweet taste with a light bitter and malty dry finish. Soft carbonation, light body. Not bad!
[Half pint from cask @ The Brewery Tap, Abingdon, UK]

Davros IX (577) - Hertford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 18, 2017
Bottle at home from the brewery while watching the Singapore Grand Prix. It looked good in the tankard and the nose was roasted and toasted malts. The flavour was the same, with the bitter toasted malts perfectly balanced against the typical sweetness of a true mild. The malts gave a lovely mouthfeel and I had it at the perfect temperature to make this very thirst quenching. I can see why this did so well at the GBBF.
