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.

Cask handpull at Blackfriar London. Black beer lasting tan head. Chocolate aroma. Milk chocolate in the mouth. Sone Bournville chocolate flavour. A little one trick and the finish is a little grainy but ok

Cask HP at The Old Bell Fleet St. As Yorkshire Blackout. Very dark orange brown, still, creamy beige head. Aroma is mostly chocolate syrup - the type you get on ice cream, cheap brownies, chocolate fro yo. Body is fairly light, smooth, soft carbonation. Taste has more thin artificial chocolate, raisins, vanilla, some kvass, dark breads, touch salty, dry into the finish with a touch of ash. Works quite well. bit sweet and thin for me but decent.

Much better on tap then in bottle. chocolatey but not too sweet. A bit watery in the bottle, but this isnt the case on tap. For someone like me who likes the taste of sweet stouts but finds milk stouts overpowering it is perfect for my fix.
