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.

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.

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.

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.

DruncanVeasey (6950) - NUNEATON, Top 24, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - JAN 13, 2011
BC. Pours dark, transparent ruby with a slim cream slick. Aroma of coal, red wine and mouldering leaves. Flavour dank and earthy (in a not completely unenjoyable way); soap, damp wood, blackcurrant skins, discounted supermarket blueberries just as they’re beginning to fur with mould. I’m also getting the lactic hints rauchbier picked up on. Decent but too yeasty and not convincing- needs the carbon turning up.

rauchbier (3559) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - NOV 12, 2010
Bottle conditioned, from Rhythm & Booze in Barton upon Humber. Deep chestnut, thin but lasting off white head and gentle condition. Muted aromas of chocolate and berries, quite tangy in the mouth with a suggestion of lactic sourness and a touch more chocolate and fruit, and a lingering finish laced with cocoa powder and another hint of the lactic notes
