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.

Cask, Sheffield Tap 20/07/11. I’m going to have to get the head brewer, Stuart Ross, to talk me through the malt bill for this one. Again. Because it works so well, it puts such strength and depth and suppleness in, that I still can’t believe how he’s conjured it up. I can nearly always find fault with a cask stout - maybe a touch acetic, or too much ashtray - but this was bob on. Three things: I need more of it. I need to drink this at the end of a long snowy walk in front of a roaring log fire. And I absolutley bloody well demand that it’s made stronger, shoved in a wooden cask of some sort and matured into a barrel-aged monster. Just go easy on the snozzberries...

Black color, beautiful beige head. Roasty malts, coffee, and chocolate in aroma, slightly smoke too. Taste of dark chocolate and coffee, medium bitterness, light sweetness. Very drinkable but with nice body and light chocolate finish. One of my favorite beers when I just want to relax after long day.

Torrefacto en nariz, en boca algo de cacao. Cremosa, intensa y equilibrada. Un cervezón! BB 27/02/2018 Ayer tome la Moor Stout, comparada con ella esta es espectacular.

Can from Asahiya. Nose of dark roast, coffee, chocolate, and some licorice. Dark brown color with translucent edges. Deep dark roast initial flavor, some ash, bitter chocolate, and licorice. Medium heavy, smooth and tongue-coating. Very nice.

rodsquad (226) - Aberdeen, SCOTLAND - MAY 5, 2017
Can from Westhill Service Station. Pours shiny black with thick tight tan head. On the nose there is light ash and licorice, dried dark fruit with a soft cocoa powder finish. Tastes as nose but with a smooth roast malt front. A surprisingly light body that is gently carbonated. The smooth roasty flavours are bang on making this a top drawer stout. Excellent.
