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).

imdownthepub (14471) - 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.
Earlier Rating: 6/8/2010 Total Score: 3.4
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.

Lubiere (13796) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - APR 4, 2011
A dark mahoganny brown ale with a thin dark moka head. In aroma, very nice caramel overlayed with moka coffee and light creamy vanilla. In mouth, a soft sweet nutty malt with light coffee notes, a bit lighter than expected but very quaffable. Bottle from MLCC on Pembina Highway.

3.2
Bov (12636) - 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

allmyvinyl (10508) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - APR 16, 2015
500ml bottle from Booths. Pours dark brown with a short-lived off-white head. Aromas of caramel, light nuttiness, fruit. Taste is light sweet, light chocolate. Sweet finish. Better on cask.

3.3
leaparsons (10504) - Wigston, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - MAY 28, 2009
Bottle. Near black with a beige foam. Aromas are earthy with a light oatiness. Some coffee and cream. Flavours are light roast malts with sweet and dark chocolate. Yeasty with a decent palate. Some hints of metal. A decent mild.

ManVsBeer (10281) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - DEC 26, 2012
Mild ale, dark with a red glow, no head. Has a slightly sweet, slightly nutty aroma, less than its name would suggest. The same can be said for its taste.

Earlier Rating: 4/1/2013 Total Score: 3.2
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.

3.4
Quack-Duck (9484) - Down South, GERMANY - NOV 1, 2010
bottle from Waitrose Sidmouth (08/2010). Dark brown colour, large off-white head. Malty, caramel, fudge, raisins. Some shy hops in the lingering finish.A very good beer.

3.4
jmgreenuk (9333) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - JUL 23, 2013
Bottle from Tesco’s. Poured a cloudy murky dark brown with a thin bubbly tan head. The aroma is weak roasted malt. The flavour is medium bitter, nutty and with roasted malt. The bitterness lingers for a while in the finish for a very refreshing beer.

3.5
maeib (8749) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - DEC 30, 2009
Bottled. A dark ruby coloured beer with a mountainous gushing whitish head. I was convinced that after a ten or so minute pour this beer would turn out to be infected, but it as surprisingly good. Smoke and hops in the aroma with chocolate, fruit, a hint of sourness and roast in the mouth. Bottled Conditioned milds rarely wotk, but this does.
