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. Dark, almost black beer. Steady bubbly tan head. Nose is milk chocolate maltiness. In the mouth, like milk chocolate milkshake with a little metallic. Sweet and delicious. There's a hint of bitter here, but mostly sweet. A little watery, but alright.

Bottle from Nina’s. Pours a dark brown colour with a thick, light tan head. Aroma of Cadbury’s chocolate, caramel, coffee and roasty malt. Similar flavours with moderate carbonation and a foamy mouth-feel. Very chocolatey all round.

Cask in Crown & Two Chairmen. Pours almost black but with reddish hue in the light. Nose is milk chocolate and touch of coffee. Taste is milk chocolate and a bit of lactic milkiness. Very chocolatey porter and very good.

nealgersh (19) - South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 20, 2011
Meant to be a porter recipe from the 1930s. As a historical recreation it is interesting, but no more. The initial nice porter (darker) malty nose and flavour makes way for a fair amount of sourness, but it’s not a satisfying mouthful. It’s a bit thin for me and doesn’t have complex enough flavours.

larsniclas (5635) - Billdal, SWEDEN - JUL 1, 2011
Bottled from ? Black with a small tan head. Dry cocoa in the aroma. Pretty thin body with a milky and dry cocoa. Way too sweet.
