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%.

Bottle. A- Milk chocolate. A- Black color, black liquid, light brown head. T- Cocoa, roasty, subtle bitterness. P- Medium body, average texture, average carbonation, balanced finish. O- To be fair, I did have this bottle almost a year after the best by day. Some would scream in horror. For me, I think it’s only made this better. The hops are pretty much gone and it’s showing through almost completely stout like. Pretty tasty. I’m honestly not sure I’d like it as much fresh.

Bottle from Whole Foods in Cheltenham. Excellent beer section there. Another great effort from Brewdog. Super hoppy but smooth with loads of body. Black IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

C’est trop bon ça! C’est très caramélisé et fort bien malté. Elle est très proche de certaines bières de type Porter que j’ai pu déguster. Un délice, tout simplement!
