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

Bottle in the Porterhouse Temple Bar, Dublin. Pours deep ruby with a frothy beige head. Aroma of sweet caramel coffee. The taste is sweet and lightly spicy with a touch of smoke, cola, caramel and toffee. High carbonation. Decent.

jamaty (2118) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 8, 2015
Negra rojiza no completamente opaca que deja ver ligeramente el color rubi. Aroma muy marcado a chocolate. Exquisito sabor que mezcla bien chocolate predominante con caramelo y postgusto de cafe. Cuerpo moderado y baja carbonatacion que la hace algo aguada pero muy bebible. Buena porter.
