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

TaxiDriver (1775) - Stadland, GERMANY - DEC 1, 2013
It smells malty and fruity. Nearly no head, the body is black. The taste is sweet and a little bit strange, hard to define. The body is light to medium strong, a little bit creamy with a lively carbonation.

elbernays (1509) - Dublin, IRELAND - OCT 5, 2013
Light body. Medium carbonation. Sweet with strong Bitter aftertaste. Nose of milk chocolate. Okay just.

Aroma of soft roast, dark toasted malts, some bitter hop
Taste of roasted malts, dark sweet malts, some bitter hops in there, touch of molasses
