COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

This is a black pint with a thin white head Nice to hold in the mouth till swallowed then leaving a strong after taste for some time after But before you swallow take it to the back of the tong and drive it past both sides of the tong One to get again ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

dogbomb (996) - ENGLAND - APR 4, 2012
On cask. Pours jet black with a thick dark tan head. Chocolates and malty goodness coming from the scent. Licorice, chocolate, blackberry, treacle, a slight alcohol kick. After the sweetness comes the bitter. Makes the finish last long and memorable. Cracker.

Aromas of candy, toffee, some liquorice. Flavours of roasted malts, burnt caramel, some sweetness and herbal hop too. Perhaps a little too acrid, but a pleasing stout all round.
