On tap at Mad Fox. Pours clear moderate brown color with off white head. Nose has slight roasted malt, chocolate, an a slight nuttiness. Flavor is similar with roast on the tongue and a chocolate finish. Body is a bit too thin. Probably needs a slightly-higher mash temperature, at least for my taste. Quite nice and very drinkable.

Poured from the cask into a pint glass at Churchkey DC.

Light tan and classic big bubbled soapy head. However, I was watching this thing for about a good 10-15 minutes without touching it and it never even fell. Body color is super dark walnut/brown to black, there might even be some red hues along the sides. Nice start to this.

What a great nose on this. Fresh brewed morning drip coffee! Dark chocolate bitter notes! Lots of cream too, some light tobacco comes out too! Real killer.

Palate fills with all the great richness hinted on the nose. Coffee, chocolate etc.. Lots of ash like quality to this and carbon burnt gravy mixing nicely. Classic wet body as to be expected but pretty much giving the notes in the palate some say.

Overall just a lovely mild out of the cask, very enjoyable.

Served at the source in a pint glass. Beer is ruby and clear / brown with a thin tan head of small bubbles, low retention, no lacing, low carbonation.

Aroma is a little sweet but very faint.

Beer is light in body and sweet on the start, thins out to a watery grainy beer at the back but not necessarily in a bad way. I enjoy it mostly and move on. A good 3% beer for sure. I might have it again.

From the menu: "One of our extreme session beers, this dark roasty malt-accented beer is our lowest alcohol beer yet. This session ale is toffee and chocolate accented with just enough hops to keep the malt sweetness from getting cloying. Brewed with English malts and English Goldings hops, this classic English-style ale was born for the Pub and your pint glass."

From 05/25/12 notes at the brewpub. On cask, served in a pint glass.

a - Pours a clear dark amber color with one inch of off white head and low carbonatioin evident.

s - Smells of nuts, burnt malts, toasted malts, bread malts, light wood. Pretty nice nose.

t - Tastes nutty, bready malts, light fruit, bready malts, burnt and toasted malts. A tiny bit sweeter then the nose, a tiny step up for me.

m - Light to medium body and low carbonation evident. Nice body, a little thicker then I was expecting given the ABV.

o - Overall a nice Englidh dark mild. Lots of malts, and some nice nuts in the nose and taste. Super easy to drink, and would like to have to again.
