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).

(bottle conditioned). I have a cold, so everything smells like shit , but I got subtle coffee and dark chocolate breaking through the sinus blocking... nice black base , with lose beige head that just died too soon. A pretty grimy and unslick dark ale but soulful and honest features ,with a meaty , smoky , roastines, ev ident bitter chocolate and dark fruit , like tart plums ....This beer is a bit syrupy and jamish in body , with what i’d call a sludgy texture . Dirty , but diggable and niceale .

BrotherLogic (252) - California, USA - JUN 19, 2010
Bottle bought from Premier in Sheffield. Pours a dark red with little head, light aroma, initially quite weak tasting but settled down over the course of drinking. Pleasant but not astonishing.

imdownthepub (10648) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 8, 2010
Bottled, 500ml from Morrisons in Banbury. Black with brown head. Smooth and fruity flavours, some liquorice and hints of chocolate amalgamate into a very decent bottled mild. Easy drinking while retaining flavours.

Bottled from Waitrose. Relatively thin head and deep, rich coca-cola brown colour with hints or dark red. Slightly sweet in aroma and flavour with light carbonation. Quite well balanced "mild" flavours: well roasted with a smoky burnt toast finish.

maeib (8750) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - DEC 30, 2009
Bottled. A dark ruby coloured beer with a mountainous gushing whitish head. I was convinced that after a ten or so minute pour this beer would turn out to be infected, but it as surprisingly good. Smoke and hops in the aroma with chocolate, fruit, a hint of sourness and roast in the mouth. Bottled Conditioned milds rarely wotk, but this does.
