COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask, keg & bottle; Regular.

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.

Theydon_Bois (14964) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - AUG 19, 2012
Cask at the Cask, Pimlico - 22/06/12. Black with a little brown edgeing when held to the light and a creamy tan head. Nose is roasted malts, slightly burnt and coffee. Burnt roasted coffee, dark chocolate and malts in the taste. Medium bodied and drinkable, perhaps a little too much in the way of burnt notes for me.

Cletus (6355) - Connecticut, USA - JUL 20, 2012
Pours dark brown with some off white bubbles. Smells of roasted malt, some spicy elements. Tastes of light roasty malt, a touch of soy sauce, some spici earthiness on the finish.

Beer5000 (5467) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUL 8, 2012
On draft @ HaandBryggeriet Beer festival 2012. A black body with a small beige head. Relatively mild, but nice aroma of dark malt, coffee and roast. Flavor is sweet malt, nice bitterness, chocolate and strong coffee. Medium body. A very nice stout without anything fancy.

Has a spicy texture to begin with, but the subsequent flavours are full, chocolates and roasted malts.

geeejayell (26) - Hampshire, ENGLAND - JUN 23, 2012
Outstanding full flavoured dry stout. Plenty of hops with roast goodness and depth of flavour. One to be savoured not rushed. If you want a sweet stout then this isnít for you.

larsga (6937) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 27, 2012
Small beige head. Opaque black body. Earthy coffee aroma with spicy notes. Dryish resiny earthy coffee taste with mealy notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, soft mouthfeel. Dry earthy coffee grounds aftertaste with spicy burnt notes. Nice, vivid, drinkable, but falls off a little at the end. (0.15l sample at Haand 2012.)

A decent bitter stout, but there is a little missing in the aroma, itís just coffee. the taste is a bit medicinal and bitter. Decent.
