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.

Can. Pours black. Subtle aromas of roast malts, coffee and chocolate. Roasty bitter taste with some hoppiness. Didn’t massively enjoy it.

On tap. Very dark with a creamy head. Aroma of coffee, and a smokey flavor - reminded me slightly of beef jerky.

Pours black with white head. Nose is roasty malts and cream. Aromas are roasted malts, herbal hops, milky notes. Average carbonation, neodymium body. Neodymium roasty and milky finish. Ok, but nothing exceptional here. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Idiosynkrasie (6539) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - MAR 30, 2016
330ml can. Jet black colour with average to huge, thick, creamy, mostly lasting, fairly lacing, beige to tan head. Roasty, dark malty aroma, notes of dark chocolate and liquorice, hints of roasted nuts, bramble and blueberry. Taste is slightly roasty, chocolately dark malty with a nuttily touch, moderately sweet, fruity notes of bramble and blueberry, herbal, earthy, leafy hints of corresponding shrubs. Full bodied, somehow heavy like mercury, thereby easy drinkable and alleviated. There’s really something "magic" going on - an almost total correspondence of Magic Rock brews and my taste buds.
