Very dark pour
Very mild taste for so dark beer (some rye bread)
A bit of a disappointment

Black colour with a large frothy tan coloured head with lacing on the glass. Sweet malt aroma with maybe a hint of nut. Smooth and silky with a taste of malt.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

Dark in colour with not much in the way of head. Fruity, sweet and a bit nutty. Very easy drinking and rather nice!

I am surprised by all the low scores on this.... it is not the best i had but thr nutty black is overall a beer i would keep in stock and even drink as a session beer since it is only 3.9ABV. It stands for normal times great for sports nights, and also would be good to hve at a steak dinner.not a world class brew but a good one to be sure. Hint i suggest pouring it into a pint as this type would be best in. It lets your head be better.

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.

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!

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
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.
