Bottle. Pours very dark brown with a foamy beige head. Nutty, chocolate aroma. Mildy sweet chocolate flavor, with some light nuttiness. The flavor is better than the description. Itís quite pleasant.

This is a decent thick and medium bodied beer with a thin but resistant head. Aroma as the name suggests is somewhat soft and nutty. Taste is soft-coffee with a nutty back taste. Overall a decent beer.

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.

(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.

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.
