Brewer Half's Half Brewed Reviews: Dark Arts Surreal Stout

It's time for another edition of the Brewer Half's Half Brewed Reviews!

Magic Rock Brewing Surreal Stout - 6%

I love thick, dark beers, and this looked like it would fit the bill. This is a new brewery to me, and my local beer shop (the Discount Supermarket - an excellent beer shop cunningly disguised as a corner shop) has just gotten in a selection. 

This beer has an aroma and flavour of roasted barley. Each mouthful has a fine balance of thick, smooth richness, and bitterness from the dark malts. The finish is lingering and smoky. 

This smoky finish adds a little extra twist to what is a fine example of the style.
