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.

DarkSideOfBeer (45) - 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
