Yes it has made it to the far flung corners of the world down here in Watford and it is well worth imbibing if you like dark mild, in fact i’m having one right now and jolly good it is too : )

A very dark brown to black in colour with an off white head. Aroma of malt, coffee and nuts. A flavour to match the aroma with a nice light bitter finish..

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dunkelmaziger Geruch. Der Antrunk ist mild-malzig, angenehm mild, recht süffig. Man merkt den geringen Alkoholgehalt. Aber durch die angenehm-malzige Note wirkt das Bier trotzdem nicht wässrig. Sehr toll.
Der Nachgeschmack ist röstmalzig-schokoladig, dabei angenehm herb. Röstmalzig-herbe Töne bleiben lange auf der Zunge. --> Für die 3.9% richtig toll!

I am surprised by all the low scores on this.... it is not the best i had but thr nutty black is overall a beer i would keep in stock and even drink as a session beer since it is only 3.9ABV. It stands for normal times great for sports nights, and also would be good to hve at a steak dinner.not a world class brew but a good one to be sure. Hint i suggest pouring it into a pint as this type would be best in. It lets your head be better.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottled. Deep rubyish brown, close to black colour with a small beige head. Aroma is liquorice, some caramel malts, mild roasted malts, rather rich on toffee and also shows some mild chocolaty notes. Flavour is chocolate, roasted malts, mild liquorice and some dark fruityness. Also the toffeeish notes show up in the flavour as the beer gets a bit warmer.

Bottle. Black, opaque. Nice looking. Aroma is rocks & stones, coal and licorice, and nicely acidic chocolate. Has bottled carbonation, but is still soft and silky. Flavors are very nice. Acidic fruits including cherry with rich, 60% dark chocolate.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle at home. Pours a very, very deep ruby (looks like Ribena purple when held up to a light), finger of head with decent retention. Aroma is coffee grain, malts, nuttiness, with some grapes and cherries. Taste is different, with nutty malts leading the way and coffee, a touch of charcoal and a definite monkey nut shell thing also there. A little metallic, too (a feature which increases with the sediment). Not very sweet, but not exactly bitter either. A thin medium body, good level of carbonation. This is much more interesting and exciting than I was expecting, and with the subtle joking in the description on the label and presumably ironic ’export strength’ subtitle, this is a beer I’m really quite fond of.

Bottle from morrisons, had at home. Alround rating: Sweet roasty chocolate malts, good mild malt set up, no hops, but a small tartness balances it all out. Tasty.

UPDATED: NOV 17, 2010 June 2009 Bottle conditioned from Morrisons. Thwaites Mild (under various names ) is one of their more notable beers, and when served in good condition it is a very decent beer indeed. Being a dark roasty, low hopped beer, it stands up well to pasteurisation - but this is the beer Thwaites have decided to test as a bottle conditioned ale. Perhaps because it is such a robust little ale, that they feel it can hide the flaws better? Anyway, the extra strength works well, and this is a decent quaffable mild. It is soft and creamy, with interesting chocolate notes and touches of vine here and there. Quite likeable. [3.3]
Nov 2009 Bottle conditioned from Morrisons. Cracking beer - very drinkable. Lovely sweetness. Hmmmm. I could drink a fair bit of this stuff. [3.9]
