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.

Clear dark red - amber beer. Tidy pale cream coloured head. Palate is light, crisp and a little dry. Super light malts, minerals. Vague dark fruits. Dry finish. Mmm it’s all a bit bland and non-descript. I expect more of this brewery now.

harrisoni (12648) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - AUG 12, 2013
500ml bottle from Oddbins London Bridge drunk at home. Very very dark brown beer with lasting dark beige rocky head. Funny there is a slightly herby edge to the choccy mild feel. The beer is good. A really good dark beer. Drunk as England won the Ashes at Durham on 12 August 2013. What an evening. Broad was amazing. Good beer too.
