COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle conditioned.
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.

imdownthepub (11495) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 17, 2013
Bottled, 500ml from Waitrose, Witney. Black with cream head. Thinner than the cask version, there is still a darkly roasted malt though but masked a little by a wet cardboard type flavour, some fruitiness. Lacks some depth. Average.

Bottled, 500ml from Morrisons in Banbury. Black with brown head. Smooth and fruity flavours, some liquorice and hints of chocolate amalgamate into a very decent bottled mild. Easy drinking while retaining flavours.

DSG (8610) - Tel Aviv, - JUN 19, 2013
Bottle sample at a tasting at the Beer & Beyond shop. Thanks troubles. Dark brown color with a huge beige head. Aroma of malt, dark bread, a bit of toastiness, nutty notes, a bit of caramel and some earthy hops. Sweetish malty flavor with some toastiness, caramel hints and a dry finish, slightly bitter and earthy. Light to medium-bodied.

beerandbeyond (708) - ISRAEL - JUL 5, 2013
bottle sample. Clear dark brown with red hues and a big dark beige head. Ashy nose, with nuts, mild roast, earth and faint cocoa. Soft roast flavors, some dark bread and low bitterness. Over carbonated, dry, light and overall OK.

50cl bottle. Thick creamy tan head. Clear black pour. A nice brew. I never drunk milds 20 years ago as they were almost extinct when I started drinking. I’m glad the style is making a comeback due to Camra. A nice session beer.

Beth101 (531) - 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.

BrotherLogic (252) - California, USA - JUN 19, 2010
Bottle bought from Premier in Sheffield. Pours a dark red with little head, light aroma, initially quite weak tasting but settled down over the course of drinking. Pleasant but not astonishing.

piscator34 (2152) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - MAR 12, 2011
Bottled sample. Brownish-red in colour with moderate carbonation. Faint aromas of pale malt, minerals, orchard fruit and vanilla. Watery on the palate with notes of toffee, toasted nuts, molasses, and chocolate powder. A bit too watery and simplistic, but not all that bad either. Average.
