Dark Arts blends 4 malts and bags of whole hops to deliver a decadently deep and indulgent experience. A luxuriously smooth mouthfeel, is followed by spicy hop notes and full flavours of chocolate, liquorice, blackberries and figs. The finish is rich and satisfying with a lingering roasted bitterness. Our stout will convert you to the dark side.

visionthing (3222) - Oslo, NORWAY - APR 4, 2013
On tap at Grünerløkka Brygghus (Mathallen). Black with a lasting beige head. Roasty aroma with malt, chocolate, licorice and hints of fruits, pine and coffee. Medium body with fairly average carbonation. Moderate sweet and chocolaty with a decent bitterness in the finish. Very nice and surprisingly refreshing!

olio (6897) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAR 30, 2013
33 cl bottle. BBE 12/2013.
Pours pitch black color with a large beige head, leaves a nice lace. Aroma of toasted malts, some dry dark chocolate, cocoa and caramel, faint licorice and vanilla notes too. Flavor of ash, cocoa powder, dark chocolate, caramel and roasted malts. Slick but still very dry palate. Balanced and all round nice brew.

spacecube (1127) - Leeds, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 22, 2013
Pours black with a foamy head and solid carbonation. Roasty chocolate malts the main flavour in the aroma, a hint of coffee and cream, not too bitter. Pleasant to drink

DarkSideOfBeer (47) - Padova, ITALY - MAR 15, 2013
Alla spina in K-keg. Torbatura eccellente e retrogusto torrefatto per questa "surreal stout" decisa ma non aggressiva che con 6% di volume alcolico si lascia bere fin troppo facilmente

Straight forward, but well brewed and clean.

Opaque black beer, tidy tan head. Semi dry palate, crispy. Dark malt, roasty. Not a lot of hop here. Finishes semi dry with a bitter roast malt aftertaste. One dimensional, needs something to balance all the roast malt.
