3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Jan 2013 - room temp bottle of ’Nutty Black’. Dark mild beer. There is some ’nuttiness’ in the flavour, light body and slightly watery, slight smokiness too. A bit of a cheap sharpness to it that I associated with my under-fermented home made porters, but only to a small, hardly noticeable, extent. Overall, it’s alright but nothing to write home about.

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.
