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).

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.

incredibly gassy bottle, powdered chocolate aroma, massive head that thankfully vanishes so you can see a (nutty) black body that tastes sweet and rich, fizzy and watery though still enjoyable.

Bottle 500 ml at home. Labeled simply Nutty Black but the barcode and ABV 3.9% fit, so I am rating it under this. Into a big tulip. Pours dark brown, with ruby shades where light hits it. Huge dark beige head, thick and creamy, with great retention, leaving medium lacing on the glass. Aroma is unexpectedly fruity, berries like, some liquorice. Taste has roasted malts, red fruits, a bit of stale coffee, grass. Medium thin body, good carbonation, very dry initially on the palate but after that the dryness seems to tone down a bit. Overall a tasty beer and very easy to drink.

Bottle 0,5ltr: Very dark brown coloured brew with an slightly sweet bitter taste and hints chocolaye, nutty and roasted malts. This was the 3.9% abv bottled version!

Bottle. Too cold to start, witjh some chocolate, old wood shavings, butter and hazelnuts on the aroma and flavour. When warmer it did not improve much. Watery, not a mild out of this world.

good aroma pleasant. A nice dark appearance and promises of a silky smooth pint. The taste disappointed me. I was expecting more but t tasted a bit diluted. Overall it was ok but not one I would buy again

At first I served this a bit too cold which had a negative impact on the beer. As it warmed slightly the beer improved considerably and started to give off all sorts of flavours, nuts, dark fruits, raisins, toffee all tickled the tastebuds while a slight hoppiness waited in the wings to give a subtle, bitter finish. All in all a nice beer if you do as it says on the label, serve cool NOT chilled.

Bottle quality save. Black red colour shortlived tan head. Aroma is nutty and malty. Taste is v good bittersweet nutty strong sweet malt finish. Good silky medium body low carbonation. A cracker.

Bov (13221) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - OCT 17, 2013
from an english shop in Neuchâtel - black beer with a foamy beige head; aroma of cacao and chestnuts; moderate malt backbone, overcarbonated and light acidic, quite dry and gently bitter, more notes of nuts and cacao in the finish
