COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Regular. Also available bottle conditioned.
A complex blend of fine English Malts, Blackout is a porter ale produced from a unique 1930’s recipe which has only recently been recovered.
The rich, smooth taste will help you relax and unwind, but treat with care, this porter is not called Blackout for nothing.
We hope you enjoy a taste of the past.

Bottle from blacker Hall farm (Denby dale). Beautiful aroma of chocolate and toffee. Taste doesn’t quite live up to the smell, but not bad, quite a deep and savoury flavour, not much bite or bitterness though. Dark brown in colour and the head didn’t last long.

Great Yorkshire and Cropton Blackout bottles from Hopkins-Porter, Ripley Castle. A black beer with a creamy white head and ruby red highlights. It has a creamy rich tasting beer with strong milk chocolate notes and a sweet, oily, slight roasted finish.

Leighton (9848) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 1, 2013
Keg at the Euston Tap - London. Pours brown with a foamy, beige head. Lots of slightly artificial chocolate powder in the aroma, perhaps some coffee. Medium sweet flavor with sugary milk chocolate and subtle roasted malts. Light to medium bodied with fine, creamy carbonation. Sweet finish with a bit of earthy bitterness and more semi-artificial cocoa. So so.

Bottle. Black beer with red hues. A medium head that dissipates to a ring around the edge of the glass. An aroma of cocoa and vanilla is quite strong. The taste is cocoa, some bitter hops, lactose and roasted malts. The beer is more like a schwarzbier in texture. Very good beer.
