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.

BOBBDrinker (66) - - MAR 28, 2014
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.
