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.

Been a long time coming. From one of those tap things from the other place. Smooth and beautiful. Good times in the sun, sat in a lovely garden with a dear friend. There was beer in tubs scattered around. Did I mention this was bloody awesome?

Black (or very dark brown) beer with a brown head. Surprisingly light aroma of toasty malt. Not much of an initial hit of flavour other than a bit of hop on the tongue. Following that is a stronger taste of malt and I think both coffee and chocolate. There?s a brief tangy fruit flavour in there too and the finish is quite bitter and dry. Lighter than I expected.
