COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Mainly bottle conditioned. Has been seen in cask as Very Nutty Black.

Higher abv version of Thwaites mild, which has been sold under various names.
Previously sold as Very 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. Pours slughtly hazy very dark ruby / copper brown with airy light tan head. Very mild aroma of malt, with touches of caramel and yeast. Sweetish flavour of the same, with notes of roast and nuts and faint fruity hints. Nutty Nd slightly roasty aftertaste. Reasonable for the style.

Douberd (4622) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - MAY 7, 2014
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.

BeerViking (3982) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 3, 2010
Pours a dark red-brown with a tight mid-sized beige head, malt, some muscovada and a little plum plus a hint of tartness and a little spice - cinnamon? More malt and dried fruit on the vtongue plus notes of milk chocolate and a little coffee, then a dry fruity finish.
