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.

Gurthnar (4480) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - NOV 28, 2015
Bottle by Cuso, thanks! Almost devoid of any aroma and flavour. Rather dry and slightly roasty. Easy drinking and even tasty. The lack of more points is because of the sheer simplicity of this beer.

gegwilson (2731) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - NOV 14, 2015
Bottle from a Welsh Tesco. Pours mahogany with a big frothy cream head. A very mild fruity malt aroma. The taste is light spice with a hint of red fruits before a pine finish with a hint of coffee coming late to the party. Quite decent.
