Thwaites – Nutty Black

WP_20131228_007What the brewers say: Curious dark ruby mild with a hint of nuttiness but unmistakable roasted and bittersweet flavours. Brewed with only the finest dark kiln roasted malts and English barley for a bittersweet flavour and lightly hopped with Fuggles and Goldings.

Following on from Fullers Black Cab was this offering from Thwaites, procured at the same Londis store in Crystal Palace and continuing the evenings dark ale theme. This mild was a little sweet for me but made for an interesting alternative. A true bottle conditioned beer so store upright and pour carefully to avoid disturbing the yeast. 3.9% A.B.V.
