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).

Erzengel (5340) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - OCT 6, 2013
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! --> 13/12/13/13

cthomas2390 (228) - Colorado, USA - OCT 1, 2013
Really nice black ruby pour with great head. Aroma’s a bit nutty, roasty, and fruity, but more apple than the darker carameled fruits i’d like/expect. Taste is alright, with some nutty biscuit notes and a bit of roast again. Palate is a bit thin, though the carbonation amps it a bit.

jjsint (1339) - Ely, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - AUG 29, 2013
Bottle from Tesco. Colour is black with reasonable full grey-tan head. Aroma is of nuts of course, with some smoke and liquorice notes. A bit metallic. Taste is exquisitely complex, sweet mostly but slightly bitter.

jmgreenuk (5715) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - JUL 23, 2013
Bottle from Tesco’s. Poured a cloudy murky dark brown with a thin bubbly tan head. The aroma is weak roasted malt. The flavour is medium bitter, nutty and with roasted malt. The bitterness lingers for a while in the finish for a very refreshing beer.

deanso (6503) - the Hague, NETHERLANDS - JUL 23, 2013
50cl bottle courtesy of and shared with jmgreenuk. Thick creamy off white head. Clear deep burgundy pour. Nice brew.
Earlier Rating: 4/1/2013 Total Score: 3.2
50cl bottle. Thick creamy tan head. Clear black pour. A nice brew. I never drunk milds 20 years ago as they were almost extinct when I started drinking. I’m glad the style is making a comeback due to Camra. A nice session beer.
