COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle conditioned.
Higher abv version of Thwaites mild, which has been sold under various names.
Previously sold as Very Nutty Black
Normally brewed solely for the home market, Daniel Thwaites has broken all the rules with an export strength version of its award winning ale. The same great well rounded flavours and nuttiness lie within but bottles will now leave Lancashire destined for the Far East (Leeds) and even remote areas of the southern hemisphere (such as Watford).

redders1974 (347) - Greater Manchester, ENGLAND - JUL 28, 2015
Not much in the way of aroma dark brown with nice silky head and ringlets, very smooth and velvety slightly thin body maybe a hint of coffee decent for a mild

Bottle from waitrose. Dark brown with short lived head. Aroma is indeed nutty, with teacle and a bit of tin. Taste is mild but sweet and bitter. Nice beer.

MiP (14465) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JUN 7, 2015
Bottle, 3.9%. No aroma as far as I can tell. Clear shiny dark chestnut colour. Small frothy off-white head. The flavour is watery with a hint of sweet liquorice. Fruity and watery finish. Tastes all right, but is very thin, even considering its ABV.

Bamsen78 (4414) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JUN 2, 2015
Bottle. Pours slughtly hazy very dark ruby / copper brown with airy light tan head. Very mild aroma of malt, with touches of caramel and yeast. Sweetish flavour of the same, with notes of roast and nuts and faint fruity hints. Nutty Nd slightly roasty aftertaste. Reasonable for the style.

lux_edwards (201) - - JAN 17, 2015
500 ml bottle. Pours dark brown with a tan head that dissipate quickly. Aroma is light as is the taste. Palate is overly filtered and boring.

Zlotta (319) - Bonn, GERMANY - DEC 15, 2014
0,5 l bottle from the English Shop in Bonn. Clear, very dark reddish-brown with a slowly diminishing, creamy, tan head. Weak aroma of roasted malts, nuts and dark chocolate with hints of dark fruits. Sweetish taste of roasted malts, dark chocolate, licorice. Slightly metallic and bitter finish. Medium body, slightly creamy texture (a bit watery though), flat carbonation. Okay beer but not fantastic.
