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%.

330ml butelka. Kolor Czarny, minimalnie przeswitujacy. Piana obfita leczy szybko opadajaca. Ladny lacing. Aromat mocno owocowy (ciemne owoce i cytrusy, las, jagody, czarna porzeczka). Niesamowity smak. Bomba owocowa z lekka, zanikajaca goryczka. Dobrze ulozony alkohol sprawia, ze piwo jest bardzo latwo pijalne. Niesamowite! Pozycja obowiazkowa od BrewDoga

AgentAle (1636) - Alberta, CANADA - FEB 14, 2016
Aroma is roasted malts, caramel, and some hop earthiness. Taste is rich malts, caramel, toffee, slight vanilla and tart which mingles together quite affectively. Appearance is black with a thin pearl head that retains fairly well.

Biroholik (1097) - Sosnowiec, Poland, POLAND - FEB 9, 2016
Chmiele: Simcoe.
Kolor: Czarny z minimalnymi refleksami.
Piana: Żłto-kremowa, małe oczka, genialnie krążkuje i zaznacza na szkle każdy łyk wypitego piwa.
Zapach: Słynny prażony slonecznik na pierwszym planie. Bardzo mocny i trwały aromat. Poza nim trochę ciemnych owocw.
Smak: Ciemne owoce z ktrych bardzo wyraźnie czuć czarną porzeczkę. Poza tym trochę żywicznej nuty. Goryczka wyraźna, troszeczkę szczypiąca język. Pijalność na wysokim poziomie.
Wysycenie: Średnie.
Podsumowanie:
Bardzo dobre Black lPA . Świetnie zbalansowa Z mocną,wyraźną nutą prażonego slonecznika. Piwo jest bardzo gładkie i pijalne.

poech73 (383) - Braine, BELGIUM - JAN 30, 2016
From Hoppy House Magnifique dgustation proche dun Porter. A la dcapsule, le nez se ravit de senteurs forts aromatiques: caf moulu, caramel un houblon rsineux le tout sur une eau alcaline. En bouche, la gorge livre un maltage fort complexe mais assez gale: rond aux saveurs de caf cacaot aux flancs sale cependant fort aqueux. Ce nest quen arrire bouche que je reois une certaine densit avec de la rglisse qui offre une sensation lacte voire crmeuse accompagne dune amrisation forte mais pas agressive sur un belle longueur laissant le palais gras et la langue poudreuse. Un incontournable!

mduspara (33) - Zagreb, CROATIA - JAN 26, 2016
Bottle 0,33 Pours dark (almost black) brown with a big, off white head. Hoppy with aromas of pine, citrus and grapefruit. Some coffee and licorice aromas somewhere in the back. Medium body with well balanced bitter/sweet taste. On the palate it tastes of pine, licorice and orange. Long lasting bitter aftertaste.

Bottle. A- Milk chocolate. A- Black color, black liquid, light brown head. T- Cocoa, roasty, subtle bitterness. P- Medium body, average texture, average carbonation, balanced finish. O- To be fair, I did have this bottle almost a year after the best by day. Some would scream in horror. For me, I think its only made this better. The hops are pretty much gone and its showing through almost completely stout like. Pretty tasty. Im honestly not sure Id like it as much fresh.
