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).

500 ml bottle. Pours dark brown with a tan head that dissipate quickly. Aroma is light as is the taste. Palate is overly filtered and boring.

Zlotta (3285) - Hagen / Düsseldorf, GERMANY - DEC 15, 2014
0,5 l bottle from the English Shop in Bonn. Clear, very dark reddish-brown with a slowly diminishing, creamy, tan head. Weak aroma of roasted malts, nuts and dark chocolate with hints of dark fruits. Sweetish taste of roasted malts, dark chocolate, licorice. Slightly metallic and bitter finish. Medium body, slightly creamy texture (a bit watery though), flat carbonation. Okay beer but not fantastic.
