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.

Seffle (200) - 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 (1871) - Greater London, ENGLAND - 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 (440) - 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 (256) - 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.

Vignale (2198) - Malmö, SWEDEN - JAN 27, 2014
UPDATED: JAN 28, 2014 Flaska från SB. Fina rostade lite söta aromer. Mörk bröd, chokladkola, torkad frukt, kaffe, svarta vinbär. Lätt kropp men mycket smak, väldigt bra balans, lätt rostad bitter eftersmak som dör relativt snabbt. Stor öl i litet format, fantastisk maltbas med stora smaker. Lite Caskkaraktär. En bra mild och riktigt gott.
