COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A dark, almost black porter, named for the part of the brewing process not quite covered by science. Dark Arts is brewed using a healthy dose of Black malt and Chocolate malt, to add to the flavour as well as to give the beer its dark colour. This unfiltered porter has a clear roasty flavour, but with hints of caramel and chocolate, while maintaining enough bitter hop presence to preserve its balance
