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.

Dark brown beer (not black) with greyish brown fizzy head that fades slowly. Primary smell is chalk, then more subtle smells of roasted malt, coffee, liquorice, hint of chocolate, and hops. Taste is bitter, lots of coffee, plums, some figs and a bit of liqourice. Mouthfeel is very mediocre, a bit watery for a stout. Nice spicy hops and pepper in aftertaste, although it could be stronger. Could be better, but certainly not bad.

330ml can.Im a big fan of Magic Rock -they ar one of the better UK acraft brewers but this isnt their best beer. Good coffee aroma and a nice black appearance with a tan but not strong head. For me the taste is too bitter - too much on the burnt side and less on the sweet side that makes a really good stout. However works quite quite well with an American Rye or Bourbon whisky that provides that sweet balance.

Can. Black colour, minimal head with decent lacing. Aroma is intensive roasted malt, a bit of liquorice. Light bitterness, dry. Lively carbonation, too high. Decent.

UPDATED: MAR 15, 2017 Ciemne z bogatą pianą. Kremową i trwałą. W aromacie kawa z mlekiem. Początkowo w konsystencji wydaje się gęste i puszyste. Pźniej nieco wodniste. Dosyć wytrawne. Bardzo poprawne.
