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.
