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.

beerbaaron (1933) - Arizona, USA - FEB 22, 2014
Bottle (1 day after ’best by’ date). Pours almost clear, light to medium brown amber. Medium to large frothy creamy tan head, fairly lasting with excellent lace. Aroma is sweet and dry. Nutty, light dark fruity, touch of caramel and chocolate roasty malty, along with a sort of earthy herbal woody character. Flavor follows. Good complexity. Bigger Medium body. Finish is mild bitter and some nice chocolate and coffee like roast. The best of the 4 Celt brews I picked up.

MarinEvelyn (794) - Wisconsin, USA - FEB 22, 2014
Sweet malt, dark fruit, caramel, a little creamy aroma. Taste is slight coffee/chocolate, fairly light, smooth, creamy. Roast malt, a somewhat bitter finish. Fairly smooth and drinkable. The dark color is deceiving.

Seffle (450) - Mölndal, SWEDEN - FEB 8, 2014
Bottle from Systemet. Firm, rich head and fine dark copper body. For a alcohol weak mild, it has a very fine aroma and taste with coffee and chocolate. A bit more than the "folköl"-variety of this ale, you can buy in Sweden. Both are very good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Niall73 (2418) - Ontario, CANADA - FEB 4, 2014
bottle. bb 06/01/14. Pours a dark ruby brown with a foamy off white head. Leafy, grassy slightly woody aroma with a hint of yeast. Medium body, a teeny bit thin, mild to medium carbonation. Slightly woody, yet fresh, a little resin, some lemon. It’s OK.

MSBrindbergs (664) - Solna, SWEDEN - FEB 2, 2014
Flaska från SB. Svart vätska med 3 finger krona. Skummet blir härligt tjockt en stund. Dofter av kaffe och choklad. Rund och bra i smaken, kunde varit lite kraftigare kanske men lämnar en bra eftersmak. Inget sticker dock ut riktigt tycker jag.

BiffNilsson (270) - Perstorp, SWEDEN - JAN 31, 2014
Mörkbrun med stor smutsgul skumkrona. Doften är söt med en svag kaffeton. Smaken är pigg. Kolsyran är otroligt massiv och exploderar i munnen. Smakar lite kaffe i fyllig balans med malten. Trots ett lågt ibu är beskan tydlig och eftersmaken är lite bitter. De är inte ofta jag tycker att en öl är för starkt kolsyrad, men här tycker jag den tar över lite. I övrigt en bra öl.
