A complex blend of fine English Malts, Blackout is a porter ale produced from a unique 1930’s 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.

Dark brown. Not much head. Huge vanilla aroma. Caramel and roasted malt flavors. Dry finish.

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.

SilverfoX (879) - Norfolk, ENGLAND - JUN 30, 2015
big chocolate and vanilla aromas, looks a bit like cola, smooth rich chocolate flavour with hints of vanilla not cloying and very well balanced. superb beer.

[York Beer Festival, 2014] - Great Yorkshire Brewery Yorkshire Blackout, 5%, dunkelbraun, fast schwarz. Mittlere, luftige Krone. Deutlich schokoladig und vanillig im Aroma. Nicht zu süßlich. Noch etwas wässrig, nicht ölig. Gerade mal mittlerer Körper. Minimalste natürliche Kohlensäure. Im Antrunk jede Menge dunkler Schokolade, durch etwas Hopfenfloralität aber nicht süß, 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.

omhper (25740) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - MAY 29, 2015
Bottled. Dark brown, small head. Cocoa powder and caramel up front. Sweet with medium body and rounded mouthfeel. Sheer chocolate sauce. Low bitterness. Simplistic.
