COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Regular. Also available bottle conditioned.

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.

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.

½ Pint Cask split by two with SinH4 @ Waterloo Tap. Happy B-Day! Black, little tanned head. Nose is cacao, chocolate, coffee, low herbal. Lovely round stupidly drinkable cacao & chocolate taste, sugar, mildly sweet, insanely drinkable. Really tasty & crazily drinkable. This is really lovely.

500ml Bottle conditioned: BBD 7th Aug 2013, poured at home some 8 days earlier into an ’Abbot Ale’ glass tankard.

Lovely black colour with a full and lasting beige head.

Chocolate esters and tastes rule the brew completely, rich and creamy feel to the whole brew: a chocolate orange flavour arrives as the beer warms in the glass, which sets it apart from other Porters I’ve tried.

Really enjoyed this beer, my fourth and final bottle during a ’random tasting evening’ I undertook with myself.
