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).

This was very dark, with a big bubbled beige head. The palate is lovely soft and very malty, not that nutty to be honest, there is a hint of coffee on the finish. A great quaffable brew, could drink loads of this.

Bottle from Tesco. A very dark ruby with a tan head. A nice smooth bottled ale, caramel, malts, toffee, very nice.

I probably havenít drunk a mild for 30 years, so I thought Iíd stretch my parameters: well, it looks good: pours deep ruby red with a beige head. However,Iím getting a rubbery vinegar aroma, and a taste more mouth dryingly sour than nutty. Not really enjoying this, perhaps it doesnít travel over the Pennines? Perhaps theres a reason I havenít drunk mild for 30 years. The further I get down the glass, the more actively unpleasant I find this, itís going down the drain.

Bottle. Very dark brown/red with a thin but lasting head. Weak aroma of coffee. Flavour is fruity with a chocolate and coffee edge. Not bad for a mild.

Bottle (@ room temperature). Pours reddish black with foamy off-white head. Aroma is malt, fresh green grapes, lemon and hints of horse stable. Taste is medium bitter and light sour. Body is light oily with good carbonation. Finish is medium long with notes of fruit.

Beth101 (528) - West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - AUG 21, 2009
Bottle from Tesco Bradford. Black colour with a large frothy tan coloured head with lacing on the glass. Sweet malt aroma with maybe a hint of nut. Smooth and silky with a taste of malt.

martinrumsam (484) - BARNSTAPLE, Devon, ENGLAND - MAR 10, 2012
bottle pours almost black with a ruby red tint and a tan head . aroma is light - some toasted notes combined with light coffee. High carbonation - overdone which masks the taste somewhat and gives an edge on the palate . Thin body with taste of unsweetened cocoa , coffee dominated by a tart sourness and a metallic touch . Disappointing

errr...nutty: oats and almonds, roastiness, sweet malty texture, some mild chocolate in there and a porter-ish nod. little bland overall

Pizd (432) - Merseyside, ENGLAND - MAR 31, 2013
(Bottle): Pours lovely, very black with small tinge of red. Almost no head. Aroma is nutty, hints of coffee and liquorice. Taste is similar - malty, nutty taste but unfortunately is very watery and doesnt leave much on the palate.
