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

Sizzler80 (501) - Dublin, IRELAND - FEB 3, 2012
UPDATED: JUN 27, 2012 Dark cola-like pour with a thin, almost non-existent beige head. Aromas of roasted malt, chocolate, coffee and hint of dark fruit. Slight smoked notes. Roasted malt and bitter coffee are the dominant flavours. The chocolate is there but low key. Slightly dry and a little bitter from the hops. Nice porter.

omhper (25835) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - APR 13, 2011
Draught at The Porterhouse, Dublin. Hardly see through black, creamy head. Mid dry, dense and roasty . A meaty Irsish porter/stout, more full bodied than you’d expect from a 4.4% beer. Choclate mud cake with raw licorice. Long bitter finish.
