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.

UPDATED: APR 2, 2016 Pitch black beer with a beige, frothy head. Smells of rich, earthy malt and a touch of chocolate. Surprisingly light. Malty, bitter chocolate and then a splash of light, tangy, fruity hop in the flavour. The malt is quite long-lasting. Only disappointing thing is it feels ever so slightly watery. Lovely, though.

Dark brown, weak head. Aroma: chocolate, roasted, light vinous notes. Light sweetness, burned acidity, low bitterness. Flavour: sweet roasted malt, cold coffee with bitter chocolate. Very good.

Brilliant drop...love the chocolate...liquorice roasty flavours..find the finish a bit short though.

Can at the Old Bicycle Shop, Cambridge. Very dark brown, barely translucent with a quickly dissipating khaki head. Aroma of coffee, some stone fruit, charcoal. The sweet taste is amazing. Full of gorgeous chewy malt with a light hop balance. The hop bitterness increases to the end of the sip, imbuing the beer with a fruit juice finish. Robusta coffee, ash and mulberry juice in the aftertaste. Body isn’t overtaken by carbonation; it’s soft and creamy. A complex and enjoyable stout.

Color negro con capa de espuma marrón de dos dedos de grosor (burbujas amplias y buena retención). Carbonatación mínima. Textura entre oleosa y acuosa. Aroma torrefacto, ligero cacao y café. Simple, directo y rico. Sabor torrefacto, cacao y café a partes iguales, no demasiado dulce. Ligero amargor final acompañado de un poquito de alcohol. Postgusto mínimo. Bien.

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.
