Had this from a bottle poured into a pint glass. I really enjoy Newcastle products so I figured I'd give this beer a try. This beer pours a brownish and reddish color. The smell is very coffee, chocolate and roasted malty. The taste is pretty much like the smell. You get a good mix of coffee and chocolate. First thoughts were it's very well balanced. Really not a bad beer at all. This beer seems like it would go well with different beef dinners. I liked it and recommend it.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

12 oz bottle poured into a snifter.

A: Poured dark reddish brown with a good size head that settles to a thin layer but leaves good lacing.

S: Mild, with roasted grains, some caramel, and a hint of coffee.

F: The flavor follows, but with some light hops at the finish... and not as strong as hoped. Pretty well balanced.

M: Crisp yet smooth; dry finish; medium-thin body.

O: A good looking brew, with good flavor for style and for a 4.2% ABV.

3.3/5  rDev +3.4%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

Presentation: It was poured from a brown 12 oz bottle into a pint glass. The label lists the abv at 4.2% and there is a short description of the beer as well.

Appearance: It has a dark reddish garnet colored body with a small just off white head on top. This head settles quickly leaving a thin film of lacing that just hangs on.

Smell: It is light overall and has some odd earthy and leathery notes with some light toasted bready maltiness.

Taste / Palate: It’s flavor matches the aroma perfectly and both the flavor and palate feels light, subtle and thin. Overall I like what’s here but I would just like a little more.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Deep brown colored with a moderate amount of light seeping through. A half inch of off white to light khaki colored foam covers the top. Aroma of malt powder and a bit of chocolate. The body is light,smooth and creamy. I get malt powder and chocolate in the flavor with a very gentle note of bittering hops. This is a subtle yet tasty,sessionable beer.

I always like English milds. nice dark appearance with a quickly vanishing white head. In the light it has a red color. Smell is mild hops and sweet malts. Taste is the winner here. Medium baked bread with earthy hops that mellow to a light toffee. Mouthfeel is lacking and dissapates quickly.

look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.25

Poured into a standard pint glass
Dark brown in color, with a moderate head of light tan foam.
Aroma-Faint, toasted malt note
Taste-Subtle chocolate, hint of coffee. Overall not bad, certainly session able, if a bit middle-of-the-road. Nothing here to blow your doors of but an easy drinker.
