COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A dark, almost black porter, named for the part of the brewing process not quite covered by science. Dark Arts is brewed using a healthy dose of Black malt and Chocolate malt, to add to the flavour as well as to give the beer its dark colour. This unfiltered porter has a clear roasty flavour, but with hints of caramel and chocolate, while maintaining enough bitter hop presence to preserve its balance

jamaty (1733) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 8, 2015
Negra rojiza no completamente opaca que deja ver ligeramente el color rubi. Aroma muy marcado a chocolate. Exquisito sabor que mezcla bien chocolate predominante con caramelo y postgusto de cafe. Cuerpo moderado y baja carbonatacion que la hace algo aguada pero muy bebible. Buena porter.
