COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Regular. Also available bottled.
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.

chinchill (1776) - South Carolina, USA - APR 1, 2014
500ml bottle served in a Belgian snifter. Pours with excellent clarity; dark red-brown; small semi-durable head; spotty lacing. Aroma and Flavor are mild, as per style. Sweet malts, some dark fruit and earthy hops in the nose. The hops largely disappear from the taste, but leave the ale with a good sweet/bitter balance. Feel: medium-light body and carbonation. A bit thin, as usual for style. O: very good example of style.

Finishes with lots of toasted leaves, brown bread, earth, some meat, berries. OK.

Dark Age pours with a very ample tan - cream head which frames the deep ruby liquid perfectly. There is a strong presence of nuts, biscuit and milk on the nose and this is followed through into the beers taste. It is a great session mild and goes down a treat, just leaves you wanting another.
