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%.

Bottle - black with slim tan head. Dark fruits and malt in the aroma, chocolate, liquorice. Well balanced set of flavours, roasted maltiness and good hops. Medium bodied, some liveliness on the tongue. Like it, very nice.

davidtjm (506) - Berlin, GERMANY - FEB 22, 2014
UPDATED: FEB 23, 2014 Solid black pour, aroma of malt, tropical fruits and grass. Taste is malty, with a few usual tropical elements lingering in the back, and a subtle bitter hops finish seeing the beer out. Very good

Mejs (104) - Poznań, POLAND - FEB 21, 2014
Pours black, with medium head. Aroma is dark malts, raisins, some grassy hops. Taste is mostly dark malts with some alcohol. Bitterness could by higher, also i’d like it with a little less body. Overally it is quite nice, but for me it was more like Rochefort 8 than some IPA/DIPA

Growler. Pours a deep black with little showing of an IPA. not much hops in the aroma. Getting dark malts and licorice. Smooth mouthfeel with coffee, and toasted malts. Still not much hops. Good clean finish.
