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).

berkshirejohn (4402) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 22, 2009
500ml bottle, bottle-conditioned, from Morrisons. Deep chocolate brown in colour with an amber tint against the light, and a trace of off-white head; chocolate malt aroma; milky texture with smooth chocolate malts, and hints of toast and treacle; oily, satisfying finish with a gentle bitterness. An excellent mild.

wimpyjoe (3568) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - DEC 26, 2012
Mild ale, dark with a red glow, no head. Has a slightly sweet, slightly nutty aroma, less than its name would suggest. The same can be said for its taste.

BlackHaddock (3514) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - JUL 5, 2012
Bottle conditioned 500ml worth of beer poured into a UK sleeve. Good looking brew, dark and with a huge foaming tan coloured head. Mildly coffee and malty molasses in the smell and taste with a soft feel to the overall flavours. Not had a good mild for a while, this has reminded me how good they can be.

Bottle from a friend. Sour grassy malt aroma. Almost black colour, reasonable head. Tastes like sour cold tea. Sour aftertaste. One to water the plants with.
