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.

Pyobon (891) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JUL 8, 2014
(On tap) Black with short lived tan head. Subtle aroma of dried fruit and dark chocolate with a slightly smokey hint. Medium bodied smooth but with some bright carbonation. Taste is rich and complex with dried fruits - raisins, figs and dates - some chocolate, plus a hint of bitterness in the finish. Very nice. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

onceblind (3933) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAY 27, 2014
Black pour under a foamy light khaki head. The aroma is really lovely with earthy milk chocolate and nutty caramel tones. The flavor is a bit more bitter than I like, particularly at the beginning, but mellows into a earthy cocoa and bitter black roast malt tone. Finishes dry and roasty.
