Dark Arts blends 4 malts and bags of whole hops to deliver a decadently deep and indulgent experience. A luxuriously smooth mouthfeel, is followed by spicy hop notes and full flavours of chocolate, liquorice, blackberries and figs. The finish is rich and satisfying with a lingering roasted bitterness. Our stout will convert you to the dark side.

JackMandarin (299) - Aberdour, SCOTLAND - NOV 20, 2016
Can from Bridgend Services, Freuchie. Pours very, very dark brown. Viscous. Thin but tight, light-tan head. Aroma that is smokey, savoury and roasty......but with a lovely herbal hoppiness providing a little support. Coffee. Oxo stock cube. Hint of toasted coconut. Taste has light latte notes. A touch of vanilla ice cream. Burnt ginger bread. A little citrus...lemon, grapefruit. Really smooth. Fairly full mouthfeel. Creamy carbonation. Bit sherberty too. Burnt finish. Bitterness has real length. Alcohol is well hidden. Excellent stout.
