Celt Dark-Age is a delicious full bodied Welsh dark beer. The beer has a special blend of coffee and chocolate flavours, which are balanced with a smooth aroma with subtle notes of caramel and dark fruit, leading to a bitter finish.This beers name comes from the Dark age. Folklore has highlighted many stories of Celtic warriors and kings that waged successful battles against the intruding Anglo-Saxons. None more than King Arthur, who legend has it, fought in 12 battles in the late 5th and early 6th century.

500ml bottle from ASDA, BB Dec 2015. Cola black, big dense foamy white head. Aroma is ashy, twig, resin, sweet floral hoppiness. Body is light, foamy, low carbonation. Taste is sweet malt, ashy, soft floral hoppiness. Very good mild - moreish, balanced and extremely drinkable ... never gets watery. Impressed with this one. Under-rated.

ninecats (203) - Uddevalla, SWEDEN - SEP 21, 2014
Pours deep ruby/dark brown with a huge beige quickly dissipating head leaving lots of lacings. Aroma is flowery, some roasted notes, coffee. Taste is bitter up-front with grass, flowers, some malty tones before ending quite lingering bitter. Light to medium body, medium carbo, sharp bubbles. It says 23 IBU but it feels like it was way more. The bitterness probably comes through this much due to the fairly weak body.

RickFifty (500) - Fredrikstad, NORWAY - AUG 13, 2014
Deep red-brown color, thick beige head. Dried fruit nose, brown sugar, roasted malt, coffee. Sweet taste, roasted malt, coffee, chocolate, metallic notes, bitter finish. Big aromas and taste considering the low abv, but the taste fades quickly. Thin body, lively carbonation.
