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%.

From a bottle. Damn this is good stuff, the bitterness of the hops is subtle and balanced with the smoothness of the malt, rich roasted flavours of coffee kick in at the end. Good stuff, very good stuff.

mmahut (1363) - CZECH REPUBLIC - APR 23, 2014
Black body with creamy tan head. Aroma is amazing, has a light citrus character, avocado, some berries but mostly coffee, roasty, toffee. Taste has licorice sweetness with almost parallel complex earthy bitterness. It’s like the sweet dances with the bitter. After taste is little bit grassy. Body is full, medium carbonation.

Flaska hemma hos föräldrarna. Mycket mörk men skumkronan var lite av en besvikelse. Aromen var inte så tillfredställande heller men smaken var bra. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
