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%.

Bottle - Dark simcoe whore. Aroma is simcoe, some roasty malt. Flavour is flat caramel cardboardy malt with some simcoe at first, followed by the to be expected roast and nice simcoe hop bitterness and flavour. Loved it!

PotjeBier (2881) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - DEC 19, 2016
Bottle @ home, 1.5 years after the expiry date. Almost black color. Beige head with pretty good retention. Aromas: sweet, drop/licorice, roasty. Roast, hops, hoppy sourness, and sweetness, licorice retronasal. Flavor is moderate sweet, moderate bitter, droppy. Medium bodied. Hoppy finish, quite dry, without being very bitter. Still very enjoyable, but will retry with a fresh bottle sometime.

rferrey (64) - Huelva, SPAIN - DEC 16, 2016
Color negro, poca espuma que se desvanece muy lentamente, magistral balance de maltas tostadas con lupulo que le hacen tener un amargo-dulce muy agradable, algo de regaliz, no falla nunca brewdog

Bottle. Coke black, small off-white head. Aroma apricots, pineapple, chocolate - in that order. Taste interestingly follows in an inverse order, producing an unusual sweet&sour apricot finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Piwo czarne z niezbyt trwala piana. W aromacie kwiaty, grejpfrut i palonosc. Sa tez chmiele i szlachetny alkohol. W smaku jest kawa i nuty zywicy kontrowane lekka slodycza na finiszu. Czuc tez ciemne owoce jakby porzeczki czy jagody. Goryczka i wysycenie srednim poziomie. Dosc lekkie z polpelnym cialem i rozgrzewajacym alkoholem.
