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.

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.
