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).

Very enjoyable, and another mild! Some choc and not much nut. Dark loveliness. Great lunchtime brew. Yes. See Dom consume imminently.

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.

Cantabrian (986) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - APR 4, 2014
Bottle. Too cold to start, witjh some chocolate, old wood shavings, butter and hazelnuts on the aroma and flavour. When warmer it did not improve much. Watery, not a mild out of this world.

MalcolmTucker (924) - SCOTLAND - APR 6, 2012
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.

redders1974 (895) - Greater Manchester, ENGLAND - JUL 28, 2015
Not much in the way of aroma dark brown with nice silky head and ringlets, very smooth and velvety slightly thin body maybe a hint of coffee decent for a mild

SilverfoX (871) - Norfolk, ENGLAND - JUN 13, 2014
incredibly gassy bottle, powdered chocolate aroma, massive head that thankfully vanishes so you can see a (nutty) black body that tastes sweet and rich, fizzy and watery though still enjoyable.
