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.

Turtles (1650) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - NOV 28, 2015
Tap @ Taylor Jones with a twist. Black with a creamy thick tanned head, good lacing. Really smooth mouthfeel, mid-dry. Chocolate aroma, coffee with cream notes. Chocolate and coffee notes in the taste, classic and familiar stout taste nothing extreme, just very relaxing.

Kauge (1451) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - NOV 20, 2015
Had it a while back at Speakeasy by Põhjala and didn’t take notes. I remember quite liking it though, I got a lot of surprising coffee notes rather than chocolate or liqorice; the drinkability was excellent, the palate soft and smooth, lightish and roasty. Easygoing and well done stuff, would not have minded having one after another.
