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

Bottle at parents house, from Abbots Ale House Bottle Shop - thanks to the old man, 27/01/13. Very dark mahogony brown with reddish hues and a tight tan cap that retains well. Nose carries roast malt, milk chocolate, quite a soapy dose. Taste comprises roast malt, dark fruits, chocolate, light molasses, tobacco. Medium bodied, soft carbonation, dry finish. Ok stuff.

Oakes (15615) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 20, 2011
Draught @ Bull & Castle, Dublin. Very dark brown. Chocolatey aroma but cocoa/coffee accent. Lightish body. Vaguely fruity with some bread character. For whatever reason, this simply didn’t resonate with me.
