Appearance

The Ravens Brewing English Dark Mild comes in a tall bottle with a blue, gray, black and white label. It has a large blue raven, and the font is very legible and modern. The beer pours a dark amber color, with a generously fluffy and white head.

Aroma

I was able to pick up faint toasted malts and mild coffee, with some underlying sweet creaminess.

Flavor

Each sip reveals bitter toasted malts that gives way to toasted coffee, caramel and chocolate. As the flavor fades away, and the beer warms up, I’m getting some metallic copper flavors.

Balance

Each of the flavor notes seem very balanced in intensity against each other, with coffee being the only one standing out.

Finish

The finish is very long, with toasted espresso and caramel that lingers and then fades to sweet chocolate.

The Ravens Brewing English Dark Mild goes to show you don’t need sky high ABV numbers to deliver rich layers of flavor.
