Ravens Brewing English Dark Mild BottleRavens Brewing Company – English Dark Mild Review

Ravens Brewing from Abbotsford, BC released their English Dark Mild last year to great acclaim.  The beer pours from the bomber bottle a deep brown colour with one finger of tan head.  The foam dissipates quickly with very little lacing on the glass.  The beer gives off aromas of molasses and toffee, along with subtle plum pudding notes.  Coupled with these sweet smells are roasted malt and light coffee notes to round things out.  In the mouth, the flavour of roasted malts predominate, closely followed by caramel and roasted hazelnuts, along with a faint earthiness.  These delicious tones lead into some mild hop notes and transition to a mild bitter finish on the tongue.  At 4.0% this is a very sessionable beer, in spite of it being a rich and dark ale.  Ravens Brewing has done well to emulate the Dark Mild style with a complex and delicious mix of flavours and aromas.
