This beer is named after the late Mr W Mucklow, the last brewer in Bewdley (1912) before the new brewery opened a few years ago.

The brown 500ml bottled conditioned beer was poured slowly into an Abbot Ale glass tankard some four months before it's best before date.

William Mucklow brewed a sweet dark Mild in his day, the recipe now also gone, this brew is trying to replicate that long forgotten formula.

Very dark brown in colour, the thin tanned head soon left the scene and nothinmg sat on top of the moody looking brew. Just a hint of a necklace around the liquids edges.

Sweet molasses and roasted/toasted malts hit the nose, chocolate esters coming through as the beer began to warm in the glass (this beer should not be refrigerated anyway).

The taste/flavours were almost identical to the smells, with the chocolate becoming stronger as my taste buds became used to the intermix of flavours. Some suggestion of plums and mixed dried fruits (like in a rich cake) also appeared in the aftertaste.

Good depth of body, the alcohol content sitting well within the brew and complimenting the flavours nicely.

A lot better than the first beer I reviewed from this brewery (thank goodness).
