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.

Pours deep mahogany into an english pint. Tan head with good retention recedes leaving sheet lacing. Sweet dark caramel aromas. Thin with dark caramel and pit fruit upfront turning slightly metallic in the lasting bitter soy finish.

beeebon (289) - Cornwall, ENGLAND - JUN 12, 2015
Bottle from Morrisons, pours a coppery red amber colour with thick frothy tan head which lingers. Aroma of mild coffee and chocolate with dark fruits and molasses plus slightly woody. Taste is medium sweet and bitter and slightly sour, long lasting and rather good. A bit watery in the mouth feel but also quite lively carbonation. Decent mild ale

UPDATED: MAY 19, 2015 Must try a second pint another day as already have had something else. That said good dark chestnut appearance. Coffee and chocolate aromas. That carries on into the taste and delightful bitterness. Good one. Even better at second tasting.

imdownthepub (11282) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 22, 2015
Cask conditioned at a Wetherspoons. Dark chestnut with cream head. There is a roasty, toasty element to this from the off. Rich, dark malts to the fore, hints of chocolate bitterness alongside a plummy fruitiness. Good stuff.

ianwelby (731) - SCOTLAND - APR 11, 2015
Clear black beer with a thick and bubbly beige head. Light aroma of malt. Flavour has a lot going on. Fruit up front very briefly, malty chocolate, a bit of coffee in there but then a nice dose of bitter, grassy hop to mix things up. Has a nice, rich body too. A great beer.
