(Notes of 24/09/07) Tasted by a half-pint at the New Barrack Tavern, Sheffield (a Castle Rock's pub); served by a sparkler-pour in a half-pint nonic glass.

A: bright & pale mahogany in colour, coming with rather low carbonation and an off-white frothy head - looking really elegant.
S: syrupy caramel, brown bread, gingerbread, overly sweet but full-bodied; a flow of burned nuts, roast malts and X'mas pudding-like sticky berry fruits follows after a swirl. Rather unusual for a Mild, I think.
T: quite spicy actually, the foretaste is full of licorice (+ star-anise?!), then woody/sprigy hints follow, leading towards a mixed aftertaste where marinated berries and raisins linger, warming but not too assertive to mask the deepening bitterness with a spicy tinge. The hop mixture apparently has a strong herbal/spicy presence to it, hence the overall impression of a spiced tea. Finished slightly dry and chewy.
M&D: very soft on the carbonation, but somewhat lacking a healthy dose of fizz. This is a full-bodied and flavoursome strong ale, which one might term more suitably as a Winter Warmer than as a Dark Mild. Also, the taste is better than the aroma, IMO.

Serving type: cask
