3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
incredibly gassy bottle, powdered chocolate aroma, massive head that thankfully vanishes so you can see a (nutty) black body that tastes sweet and rich, fizzy and watery though still enjoyable.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle 500 ml at home. Labeled simply Nutty Black but the barcode and ABV 3.9% fit, so I am rating it under this. Into a big tulip.
Pours dark brown, with ruby shades where light hits it. Huge dark beige head, thick and creamy, with great retention, leaving medium lacing on the glass.
Aroma is unexpectedly fruity, berries like, some liquorice.
Taste has roasted malts, red fruits, a bit of stale coffee, grass.
Medium thin body, good carbonation, very dry initially on the palate but after that the dryness seems to tone down a bit.
Overall a tasty beer and very easy to drink.

Bottle. Too cold to start, witjh some chocolate, old wood shavings, butter and hazelnuts on the aroma and flavour. When warmer it did not improve much. Watery, not a mild out of this world.

good aroma pleasant. A nice dark appearance and promises of a silky smooth pint. The taste disappointed me. I was expecting more but t tasted a bit diluted. Overall it was ok but not one I would buy again

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
At first I served this a bit too cold which had a negative impact on the beer. As it warmed slightly the beer improved considerably and started to give off all sorts of flavours, nuts, dark fruits, raisins, toffee all tickled the tastebuds while a slight hoppiness waited in the wings to give a subtle, bitter finish. All in all a nice beer if you do as it says on the label, serve cool NOT chilled.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dunkelmaziger Geruch. Der Antrunk ist mild-malzig, angenehm mild, recht süffig. Man merkt den geringen Alkoholgehalt. Aber durch die angenehm-malzige Note wirkt das Bier trotzdem nicht wässrig. Sehr toll.
Der Nachgeschmack ist röstmalzig-schokoladig, dabei angenehm herb. Röstmalzig-herbe Töne bleiben lange auf der Zunge. --> Für die 3.9% richtig toll!
