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.

[York Beer Festival, 2014] - Great Yorkshire Brewery Yorkshire Blackout, 5%, dunkelbraun, fast schwarz. Mittlere, luftige Krone. Deutlich schokoladig und vanillig im Aroma. Nicht zu süßlich. Noch etwas wässrig, nicht ölig. Gerade mal mittlerer Körper. Minimalste natürliche Kohlensäure. Im Antrunk jede Menge dunkler Schokolade, durch etwas Hopfenfloralität aber nicht süß, sondern doch eher trocken. Keine nennenswerte Frucht. Zur Mitte wird die Schokolade noch etwas dunkler, Vanille gesellt sich hinzu. Abgang ebenfalls dunkle Schokolade mit Vanille, Nachhall ganz milde bitter schokoladig.

On cask at the Haymarket. Appearance - dark brown to black with a lovely fawn head. Nose - toffee and liquorice more than chocolate. Taste - very dark chocolate going into liquorice again. Palate - medium bodied with a creamy texture and quite an elegant finish. Overall - lovely porter.
