3.44/5 rDev -11.8%
A 500ml bottle with a BB of April 2014, so it's just out of date. ABV is stated as 4%. Acquired a while back from Beeritz. The label claims that it has a character of toffee and dark fruits.
Poured into a tulip pint glass. Bottle conditioned. A very dark reddish-brown hue that appears almost black in the glass. Produces a massive head of fluffy beige foam that resembles a meringue; this slowly subsides to a thick surface layer. Nice lacing. Aroma of mild roasted malt, faint burnt grain, subtle caramel, a twinge of dried fruit and dry, earthy yeast. OK but a bit dull.
Tastes of mild roasted malt with a dry finish. Notes of mild roasted grain, faint burnt notes, caramel, a hint of dried fruit, earthy yeast and stewed leaves. Highly attenuated, followed by a subtle, malty bitterness upon swallowing. Mouthfeel is smooth, dry and tingly, with soft carbonation and a slightly insubstantial body. Somewhat astringent, accompanied by an aftertaste of bitter stewed leaves, earthy yeast and roasted malt.
OK but nothing amazing. Looks great, with a massive head that stays the course. The aroma and flavour are rather lacklustre - dominated by earthy yeast alongside unenthusiastic dark malt. Body is alright but quite thin and dry. So-so; drinkable enough but nothing special. Perhaps the yeast developed too much in the bottle. Worth trying but no need to hunt it down.

4.22/5 rDev +8.2%
On Gravity dispense from the cask at the Battersea Beer Festival, Feb '12.
Poured into a UK pint glass to a rich dark brown veering to black colour with nothing much in the way of a head!
Strong aroma for a mild, roasted malt and chocolate dominate here.
Also a very tasty mild, again the roasted malt dominates along with a rich (for a mild!) toffee/treacle/caramel spine to the beer and maybe some dried fruits lobbed in for good measure!
Thin body and a little watery as one would expect but overall a very good mild and whilst not my favourite style by any means, I have rated this beer fairly highly in comparison to others in the style.
Make mine a mild as the campaigb says, I'll embellish that to say make mine a Mallinsons!

Taste Definite chocolate maltiness, toastiness, watery black coffee, nutty sweetness, milky notes, fruity (blackcurrents, plums), peppery, strong eartiness, nice hop bitterness, light smoky notes...
