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).

BeerViking (2474) - 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.

Ethereal (2417) - Los Angeles, California, USA - AUG 9, 2011
500ml bottle, won from the tombola at GBBF, drunk at home, 21st Dec 2010. Black, fluffy tan head. Nose is nutty. Not so malty but rather lots of dark fruit flavours. Good body for <4%. Overall a mild that is less malty than usual.

Douberd (2298) - 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.

northropfrye (2215) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - JUL 25, 2011
UPDATED: JUL 27, 2011 Bottle. Nutty and roasty though not too flavourful. Unfortunately a low alcohol content.

Gethinbeer (2158) - Nova Scotia, CANADA - AUG 4, 2009
UPDATED: AUG 25, 2010 Deep ruby colour with a very thin tan lace. Toffee roasted malt and treacle aroma. Thin texture, slight malt flavour. Lacks a full body. Hints of fruit.

piscator34 (1968) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - MAR 12, 2011
Bottled sample. Brownish-red in colour with moderate carbonation. Faint aromas of pale malt, minerals, orchard fruit and vanilla. Watery on the palate with notes of toffee, toasted nuts, molasses, and chocolate powder. A bit too watery and simplistic, but not all that bad either. Average.

SarkyNorthener (1956) - Walsall (Yorkshire Expat), West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAR 15, 2013
Bottle conditioned from Waitrose, now labeled as Nutty Black, still at 3.9% and different from the other Nutty black at 3.2% just to make it simple! Almost black beer with small beige head and a little lacing. Slight dark fruit aroma. Taste is a little nutty, roast malts and a little dark fruit chocolate. Medium bodied and slightly carbonated. Decent enough beer.
