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

Bov (10089) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - MAY 4, 2014
from Mondial de la Bière 2013, Mulhouse - black beer with a fast vanishing foam; aroma of vanilla and coffee; pretty toasted, moderate malt body, clean and decently tasty; a gentle earthy bitterness and more chocolatey and vanilla notes in the finish

Intense malty-choclate in the beginning. The mainpart is a bit light, milk-chocolate, but hints of water. The aftertaste is chocolate-malty, smooth, slightly bitter.
Nice and easy to drink, and for the 4.4% ok, but could be a bit more deeper and intense. --> 11/12/11/11

ryanscourt (858) - Latrobe, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 24, 2014
Water with a touch of booze and coffee. Maybe with most porters being closer to a stout, I am losing appreciation for a less intense ale but this one did not do a whole lot for me.
