I don't get how this is a mild. It's more a cross between a shwartbier and an old ale, with lots of different malts use to give it an interesting malt complexity. It is also 6.5% not consistent with a mild. IBU is 28, there is a modest hopping. Very decent dark malty aroma and taste. Moderately Chocolate creamy.

On tap at Market Street Brewing in Corning, NY.

Pours a dark brown, somewhat clear, with a 1/2 inch head, and a good amount of lacing.

Smells like lightly roasted malt, and a bit of chocolate.

This feels a bit stronger than the dark milds I'm used to, but still tastes fairly good, especially compared to some of the other Market Street beers. A bit of cocoa powder, some roasted malt, and basically no hop flavor. Nothing crazy, but fairly drinkable and tasty.

This one has a medium amount of carbonation, with a light bodied feel to it. Creamy mouthfeel.

Probably the best of the beers I tried by them, but it's not saying much.

A: The beer is black when viewed from afar and has traces of dark brownish red visible near the edges of the glass when it is held up to a bright light. It poured with a quarter finger high beige colored head that gradually died down and consistently l
S: Light to moderate aromas of roasted, nutty, and dark malts are present in the nose along with bits of smoke.
T: The taste is similar to the smell, except that the roasted malts are a lot stronger and particularly linger through the finish.
M: It feels medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: I found this beer to be quite flavorful for a style that is generally mild.

Serving type: growler

On tap at MSBC, served in a pint glass.

A- Clear but dark brown body with a thin off-white soapy head.

S- There really isn't a whole lot going on with the smell. Maybe a little chocolate and some roasty notes, but its really a stretch to find anything.

T- At least it tastes good. Nice and roasty, malty, and slightly bitter. There's a touch of sweetness and maybe some dark fruits in there somewhere as well.

M- Highly carbonated and medium feel. Perhaps a little too bubbly, but not bad.

O- I've heard this is their best beer they offer, and if that's the case, I probably won't be going out of my way to get my hands on their stuff. But I still love fresh local beer.

Pours a deep copper color, almost brown, with reddish highligts. Very little head and lacing, though that is expected from a growler.

Robust chocolate and roasted malt aroma. This has my interest now. Nothing special in the aroma, but it is exactly what I like. Rich and roasty.

Flavor mirrors the aroma - full of chocolate and roasted malts. Notes of bittersweet cocoa and faint hops. Robust and full flavored but not overwhelming. Very porter-ish with less bite.

Medium bodied and super smooth. Thinner than expected but all the better for the drinkability. I seriously could have finished the entire growler had I popped it during a Sunday football marathon. Mild, Old Ale - whatever it is I like it!

Big thanks to charlesw for sending me this as my Powerball winnings!

Black in the glass with a foamy off-white head.

In the nose is stale yeast and sweet grain.

Bitterness explodes in the sides of the mouth, then there is a sweet molasses flavor up front finishing in a dry fullness in the back accompanied by some coffee notes. This one has a lot of good flavor, but it doesn't really work together as well as it could. Decent, but not great.

Pours a deep dark brown with a tan head that seemed to last forever. Aromas of chocolate, caramel, roasted grains, and a bit of toffee. Smells is quite inviting. Taste is roasty and malty. Chocolate caramel and toffee mixed with a hint of astringency sum up the taste experience here. Fizzy carbonation ruined the mouthfeel for me here, this one seemed a bit over carbonated. Decent brew that might be better served a bit less bubbly.

British Dark Mild....I don't think so! No respecting Brit Mild would clock in at 6.5%!

A-Deep, dark copper...almost bronze...with a medium tan head that reduced to a thin film.
Nice lace left behind.

S-Faint chocolate and roasted malts. Not much else.

T-Rich and full flavoured with hefty amounts of chocolate and roasted malt. Secondary flavours from a fair hop bite.

M-Medium-heavy body with a good full flavoured malt bill.

D-Rich and roasty. A nice brew. A non-standard cross style between a brown, porter and stout. Untraditional, but it works.

The beer is a very dark brown: almost opaque. It has a small tan head. The nose has some roastiness to it. There are some hop notes also to the nose. There is a roast chocolate taste to it. Also a little malty sweetness. There is some hops to the finish, offsetting the sweetness a bit. Tastes alot like an English Mild (They called it an "Old Ale" there).

The bartender described this as being sort of between a porter and a stout, closer to a porter. By that description, the beer was very light in color and not what I'd expect. However, if it's meant to be an English Dark Mild as listed here, then it's more in character. Pleasant flavor but not anything to be excited about.

Served from a growler courtesy charlesw as part of Beer Powerball Week 4. Thanks Charles.

Pours from the growler into a pint glass. A dark, slightly ruddy, dark milk chocolate colored beer with a decent off white head.

Nice aromas. Bready, very toasty and roasty, chocolate, citrus hoppiness. Very nice.

Taste like a slightly hoppy brown/porter ale. I dont know how else to describe it. It has some of the burnt malt characteristics of a porter but the smooth subtlety of a brown or Indian brown ale.

Medium bodied and perfect carbonation. A very nice beer. Not sure of the categorization but its good, whatever it is. Split this with my bro and dad and they both liked it. They arent beer nerds like me but I am slowly bringing them to the dark side (I brother drinks Newcastle and my dad stays away from all BMC when not drinking liquor or wine).
