Cask; Regular. Also available bottle conditioned.

A complex blend of fine English Malts, Blackout is a porter ale produced from a unique 1930s recipe which has only recently been recovered.
The rich, smooth taste will help you relax and unwind, but treat with care, this porter is not called Blackout for nothing.
We hope you enjoy a taste of the past.

Much better on tap then in bottle. chocolatey but not too sweet. A bit watery in the bottle, but this isnt the case on tap. For someone like me who likes the taste of sweet stouts but finds milk stouts overpowering it is perfect for my fix.

[York Beer Festival, 2014] - Great Yorkshire Brewery Yorkshire Blackout, 5%, dunkelbraun, fast schwarz. Mittlere, luftige Krone. Deutlich schokoladig und vanillig im Aroma. Nicht zu slich. Noch etwas wssrig, nicht lig. Gerade mal mittlerer Krper. Minimalste natrliche Kohlensure. Im Antrunk jede Menge dunkler Schokolade, durch etwas Hopfenfloralitt aber nicht s, sondern doch eher trocken. Keine nennenswerte Frucht. Zur Mitte wird die Schokolade noch etwas dunkler, Vanille gesellt sich hinzu. Abgang ebenfalls dunkle Schokolade mit Vanille, Nachhall ganz milde bitter schokoladig.

On cask at the Haymarket. Appearance - dark brown to black with a lovely fawn head. Nose - toffee and liquorice more than chocolate. Taste - very dark chocolate going into liquorice again. Palate - medium bodied with a creamy texture and quite an elegant finish. Overall - lovely porter.
