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.

15/12/2012 Ma che siete venuti a fà (handpump). Bevuta a Birre Sotto l’Albero. Nera, impenetrabile, schiuma beige molto abbondante e persistente. Al naso sentori di caffé, cioccolato nero fondente, luppolo, leggera liquirizia. In bocca malti tostati, cioccolato, caffé, discretamente lunga e intensa, appagante e ben fatta. Corpo medio-leggero, carbonazione soft. Non male come stout.
