COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle conditioned.
Higher abv version of 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).

oh6gdx (20947) - Vasa, FINLAND - JUL 13, 2011
Bottled. Deep rubyish brown, close to black colour with a small beige head. Aroma is liquorice, some caramel malts, mild roasted malts, rather rich on toffee and also shows some mild chocolaty notes. Flavour is chocolate, roasted malts, mild liquorice and some dark fruityness. Also the toffeeish notes show up in the flavour as the beer gets a bit warmer.

bhensonb (11533) - Woodland, California, USA - MAY 21, 2011
Bottle. Pours very dark brown with a foamy beige head. Nutty, chocolate aroma. Mildy sweet chocolate flavor, with some light nuttiness. The flavor is better than the description. It’s quite pleasant.

AROMA: nuts, cereal, leather TASTE: medium bitterness PALATE: medium body, oily feel, lively, bitter, longish finish OVERALL: quite drinkable and nice low alcohol level, not one that stands out very much good allrounder

Lubiere (10485) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - APR 4, 2011
A dark mahoganny brown ale with a thin dark moka head. In aroma, very nice caramel overlayed with moka coffee and light creamy vanilla. In mouth, a soft sweet nutty malt with light coffee notes, a bit lighter than expected but very quaffable. Bottle from MLCC on Pembina Highway.

piscator34 (1996) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - MAR 12, 2011
Bottled sample. Brownish-red in colour with moderate carbonation. Faint aromas of pale malt, minerals, orchard fruit and vanilla. Watery on the palate with notes of toffee, toasted nuts, molasses, and chocolate powder. A bit too watery and simplistic, but not all that bad either. Average.
