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.

Caña en cimmeria el 25-01-2015. color negro intenso con espuma beige. Aromas y sabores maltosos tostados con ligeros ahumados cacaos y especias, ligero ligero amargo final y toques algo quemados. No esta mal, cuerpo medio suave y fácil de beber con 6 vol. Una pequeña sorpresa stout inglesa.

In short: tasty stout.
Pours very dark with nice creamy tan head. Moderate head retention, good lacing. Roasty, coffee, spicy aromas. Medium body, soft carbonation, oily texture. Taste is quite bitter, roasty, coffee, spicy. Ends dry and bitter. Prety tasty stout.

Very very good balance to the bitter direction. It's a nice, sweet, and not-very-hoppy aroma. It's a perfect beer to enjoy by itself. I have a hard time to picture it with food, just too sweet and too bitter for a nice mix. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

@ OT 15-1-17: riktig trevlig svart vätska med fina tjocka toner av rostat malt, kaffe och choklad. En rund och mjuk munnkänsla med lagom hetta. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone ---- Soberness not garanteed!
