COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottled, occasional
Libertine Black Ale is a 7.2% wickedly decadent black beast of a beer that has been hammered with the epic Simcoe hop. With a drinkability that defies its colour and depth of flavour, Libertine delivers a dark hop bomb combining the west coast hop awesomeness of an IPA, the dark and indulgent malt flavours of big stout with a lightness on the palate that bellies the punch that this beer packs. Bags of flavour and loads of hops. We intend to bottle some of this batch for those not lucky enough to make it to a BrewDog Bar to try it. ABV from 7% to 7.2%.

Dark brown liquid with beige foam. Molasses and chocolate malt aroma with some hops. Smooth taste, slightly sweet and bitter. Medium body with fizzy carbonation and a slick texture.

Bottle. Almost black with a medium beige head. Aroma of blackberry, grapefruit, pine and mint. Slightly oily to taste, similar flavours to aroma with a little bit of roast malt and cocoa in the finish.

TrefwoordPunk (1015) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - AUG 11, 2016
Bottle 33 cl. Pours pitch black with a medium tan creamy head and an aroma of roasted malts, black coffee, dark chocolate, earthy notes, citrus, syrup and salmiac. The taste is light to medium sweet with some bitterness and a long but not too bitter finish. Really nice!

WilliamDawn (3) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 7, 2016 does not count
-A note of spiciness in the end. -Less bitter comparing to Vagabond, letting alone Jack Hammer with the same alcohol percentage. -Overall, more of a stout-like taste, roasty.

PintjeFritz (242) - Baden-Wrttemberg, GERMANY - AUG 7, 2016
Normal bottle and label without information in detail about the malts, hops and drinktemperature. Black beer with a very nice cappuccino head, smell is fantastic after IPA, taste is a very good balance between hops and roasty malts, full body with a lot of aromas, finish is dark chocolate, (I have 0.33l bottle with best-before 09.06.2016)

kaserov (366) - Oviedo, SPAIN - AUG 3, 2016
Complejsima cerveza. Negra, con ligersima capa de espuma amarronada. Poca carbonatacin, aunque en boca se nota ms. Aroma a lpulos y a caf (leve, pero distintivo). Ms marcado el lpulo, pero no lo suficiente como para tapar su carcter de negra, lo cual es curioso, porque, en teora, una Black IPA debera tener la apariencia de una negra y el sabor de una IPA, pero no es lo que sucede aqu. En boca el carcter del caf est mucho ms marcado, casi al nivel (o incluso algo por encima) de los lpulos, cosa que no esperaba. Quiz el mayor problema es que es demasiado fcil de beber...

mice (862) - FINLAND - AUG 2, 2016
Kirkkaalta vaikuttava, mutta valoa lpisemtn melko musta olut runsaalla beigell vaahdolla, joka ei kuitenkaan juuri pitsi jt. Tuoksu kevyesti havuinen, paahteisen maitokahvinen, kermainen ja pehmen miellyttv. Maussa paahteisuutta, maitokahvia, kevytt maitosuklaisuutta ja loppupuolella kivasti greippist ja havuista katkeruutta. Pehme ja samettinen, keskitytelinen suutuntuma. Tss saisi olla runkoa viel ehk aavistuksen verran enemmn, mutta varsin toimiva kokonaisuus kuitenkin.
