4.16/5 rDev +9.8%
Served cask style at The Madison Pour House in Albany, NY.
Served in a tulip, this beer is a chocolatey, dark brown-black. Small tight head present that lasts a good amount of time.
Light but pleasant roasted malt aromas. True to the dark mild style.
Tastes include light, pleasant roasted malts, nutty flavors, and toast.
Light cask-style carbonation, with a light to medium body. Feels really good to drink down. Very sessionable.
One of the best cask beers I've had. This style obviously really works.

4.03/5 rDev +6.3%
Served on-tap at Drop Off Service in New York, NY
A: Pours a clear yet almost opaque very dark amber in color with some light amber and garnet red highlights along with a light amount of visible carbonation. The beer has a finger tall frothy beige head that slowly reduces to a very thin film covering the majority of the surface of the beer and a thin ring at the edges of the glass. Light to moderate amounts of lacing are observed.
S: Light to moderate aromas of roasted malts with some very light notes of chocolate.
T: Upfront there are light to moderate flavors of roasted malts with some light notes of chocolate and just a hint of dark fruit (plum). Light amounts of bitterness in the finish.
M: Light to medium bodied with light to moderate amounts of carbonation. Smooth.
O: This beer is very easy to drink, is enjoyable, and as a result of the low ABV definitely a session beer. I really enjoy this style and there are just not too many options in it, especially made in the US - glad I found this one since I started doing full reviews (I previously "Had" it at a cask festival in late 2011).

Appearance: Arrives with a chocolate brown color and a modest cap that leaves a few strands
Smell: Roasty, with black bread, caramel and a hint of chocolate; over time, the caramel builds in intensity
Taste: Caramel and black bread, up front, with a bit if fruit and chocolate appearing in the middle; after the swallow, coffee flavors arrive though the finish re-affirms the caramel and black bread elements; interestingly, coffee lingers in the aftertaste
Mouthfeel: Light to medium body with low to moderate carbonation
Overall: A very interesting panoply of flavor; nice to see more breweries experimenting with the style
