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.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - SEP 17, 2010
Bottle 50 cl. Courtesy of fonefan. Pours a clear reddish brown with a rough off-white head. The nose has some roast and burned caramel. Medium body, quite some roast that gradually grows a little more bitter ending with quite some malt bitterness. There’s a light underlying tartness. Calling this "rich" is maybe a little much... 170910

Leighton (18075) - 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.

Theydon_Bois (16473) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - NOV 12, 2012
Keg at the Euston Tap - 29/10/12. Now re-branded as Great Yorkshire - Blackout Stout. Still at 5% ABV. Very dark mahogony brown approaching black with a decent off white head. Good lacing ensues. Light roast malt on the nose with a touch of chocolate in the background. Tastes of chocolate pudding, light malts, a touch earthy. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation leading to a smooth roasty finish. Decent enough stout/porter.
