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.

a very mild ale, for sure. only 4% alcohol, which is weak and disappointing. still, it’s a nice tasting "dark ale".

Franzen (290) - SWEDEN - JUN 20, 2014
Roasted aroma, dark chocolate, bit of coffee a bit smokiness. Very dark red, lots of beige head, to much foaming. Taste is rich in coffee, pretty bitter, dark chocolate and coffe bitterness. A bit of malty sweetness but mostly itter. Medium body low carbonation. Nice ale, darker and more bitter than expected.

nazzty (906) - Ödåkra - Helsingborg, SWEDEN - MAY 31, 2014
Fine, burnt flavors in a nice balance to a stylish after bitterness. The brew does not become heavy and full-bodied without maintaining a surprisingly light body.
