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.
