COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottled, occasional
Libertine Black Ale is a 7.2% wickedly decadent black beast of a beer that has been hammered with the epic Simcoe hop. With a drinkability that defies its colour and depth of flavour, Libertine delivers a dark hop bomb combining the west coast hop awesomeness of an IPA, the dark and indulgent malt flavours of big stout with a lightness on the palate that bellies the punch that this beer packs. Bags of flavour and loads of hops. We intend to bottle some of this batch for those not lucky enough to make it to a BrewDog Bar to try it. ABV from 7% to 7.2%.

Beautifully dark color with creamy chocolate brown head. Intensive coffe in taste and some sweetness. A nice blend/mix of Stout and Guinness.

Bu en bouteille de 33cl, couleur noire aucune mousse présente, très forte en première bouche sur les malts grillés, une odeur de café nous prends ensuite pour finir sur une amertume houblonnée, un must
