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.

[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.

Bottled. Dark brown, small head. Cocoa powder and caramel up front. Sweet with medium body and rounded mouthfeel. Sheer chocolate sauce. Low bitterness. Simplistic.

Bottle from Drink? Hebden Bridge. Clear dark-brown with next to no head. Very rich with a lovely vanilla aroma and flavour. Has a small smoothness to its texture.

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.

Cask at the haymarket as Great Yorkshire Blackout. Pours clear dark brown, ruby hints. Tight beige head. Light coffee aromas, toffee. Taste is sweet, milky coffee. Light sweet finish, faintest toasted bitter tingle. Decent.

Cask by hand-pump (as Great Yorkshire Yorkshire Blackout) at Drum & Monkey, Glasgow - clear very dark reddish brown, good creamy beige head, chocolate malty aroma, good film of lacing, rich creamy chocolate, vanilla flavour, good carbonation, easy to drink

Keg in the New Inn, Cropton. Mahogany with a creamy cream head. Lots of cocoa in the flavour. OK, but quite one dimensional.

JohnRMurdoch (4830) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - JUL 20, 2014
500ml bottle, present. Almost black, not much head. Grassy vanilla liquorice aroma. Chocolate vanilla flavour. Sharp sweet aftertaste. Unbalanced and not very nice.

GerrynJoy (1) - MIRFIELD, ENGLAND - JUN 12, 2014 does not count
Exceptional beer both draught and bottled. Chocolate aromas with a hint of liquorice wow!!!.

Bottle from York Beer & Wine. This very dark brown beer pours with a thin tan head. It has an extremely strong milk chocolate flavour with vanilla notes and a creamy red fruity finish. More a milk/chocolate stout rather than a porter.
Earlier Rating: 1/30/2014 Total Score: 3.7
Great Yorkshire and Cropton Blackout bottles from Hopkins-Porter, Ripley Castle. A black beer with a creamy white head and ruby red highlights. It has a creamy rich tasting beer with strong milk chocolate notes and a sweet, oily, slight roasted finish.
