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).

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

Pours dark with a thin head. Fairly easy to drink with an unspectacular taste. It may be a mild but has a lot in common with a black beer. Coffee, malt and a slightly nutty burnt taste , that said it is also a little watery. At 3.9% it isnt too strong to session though. Not great but not awful.

Pours very dark brown, almost black with a creamy nitrogen head. Not a very smooth ale, very high carbonation. A roasted taste with hints of coffee but tatsting is made difficult due to the gassy nature of the ale. Too many better alternatives, lower than average.

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 from a friend. Sour grassy malt aroma. Almost black colour, reasonable head. Tastes like sour cold tea. Sour aftertaste. One to water the plants with.
