COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask, keg & bottle; Regular.

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.

MrHangover (3935) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - SEP 15, 2016
Can. Pours a nice deep black beer with a big tanned head on top. Aroma is roasty, hints of licorice and dark fruits, some more chocolate in there as well. Flavor is deep and roasty with a nice, dark bready malty experience. Loads of dark chocolate in the aftertaste, dark fruits, and overall quite dark and dense. Full flavored, subtle carbonation and good aftertaste. Nice beer!!

From tap at Fermentoren Aarhus. Pours an almost pitch black with a small tan head. Aroma has lots of malts. Roasted, chocolate, maybe oats, light hops. Taste is smoothly sweet, milk chocolate, light roasty bitterness and light fruity coffee. Average carbonation and a smooth body.

BrettGT (179) - Aalborg, DENMARK - SEP 11, 2016
Can. Aroma of roasted malts, licorice, dark chocolate, coffee. Pours almost pitch black with a one finger tan head. Taste follows the nose with roasted malts, dark chocolate and a coffee like flavour. Could need a bit more sweetness for my liking. Medium body, creamy mouthfeel, average carbonation, roasty finish. This is nice stuff - especially compared to the price tag.
