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).

SarkyNorthener (4398) - West Bromwich (Yorkshire Expat), West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAR 15, 2013
Bottle conditioned from Waitrose, now labeled as Nutty Black, still at 3.9% and different from the other Nutty black at 3.2% just to make it simple! Almost black beer with small beige head and a little lacing. Slight dark fruit aroma. Taste is a little nutty, roast malts and a little dark fruit chocolate. Medium bodied and slightly carbonated. Decent enough beer.

Zlotta (2878) - Hagen / Bonn, 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.
