COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

From cask at Piccadilly Tap, Manchester on 18 January 2017. Dark reddish brown with a thin beige head. Some chocolate but a bit heavy on creamy caramel and vanilla for my taste. OK but not really my thing.

The_Osprey (7440) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 23, 2016
Cask HP at The Old Bell Fleet St. As Yorkshire Blackout. Very dark orange brown, still, creamy beige head. Aroma is mostly chocolate syrup - the type you get on ice cream, cheap brownies, chocolate fro yo. Body is fairly light, smooth, soft carbonation. Taste has more thin artificial chocolate, raisins, vanilla, some kvass, dark breads, touch salty, dry into the finish with a touch of ash. Works quite well. bit sweet and thin for me but decent.
