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%.

inbirraveritas (1524) - Budapest, - NOV 5, 2012
Bottled. Pours a deep dark brown/ruby with a compact and stabile beige head on its top. Grapefruity nose and aroma with chocolate, caramel and florals underpainted by roasted malt. Slick, somewhat oily texture. Tannic and gently warming finish escorted by resin and liquorice. Fine, enjoyable one.

Serapac (377) - CZECH REPUBLIC - NOV 20, 2016
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

bonev (428) - POLAND - NOV 17, 2016
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.

matzou (60) - SPAIN - OCT 11, 2016
Black body with a thin 1 cm head quickly fading away. Smell of sweety licorice, very thin and slick body well balanced with a hint of biterness on the palate. As for the taste just a very slight hint of licorice.

ALIBALI (964) - Kiel, GERMANY - SEP 27, 2016
Toll lige Textur, wobei leider die Krone nur eine kurze Rolle bekommt. Egal, der Duft ist sofort voll da (das messerscharfe Elixier ruhig etwas warm werden lassen 😀). Simcoe Power, eingelegte Pflaumen, Sherry und viiiiiel Rstmalz. Klasse. Der Trunk dann schlank und sehr komplex, erst angedeutet s, sofort abgefedert von holzig wirkenden Dunkelflavours, aber nur um dann ganz langsam ins Hopfenbittervergngen abzudriften. Klasse, obwohl der Nachhall ruhig noch etwas krftiger htte ausfallen drfen. 0,33l Flasche aus dem CRAFT BEER STORE HH. Ca. 4.

artemb (725) - Chisinau, MOLDOVA - SEP 26, 2016
Aroma: sweet tropical fruits, black currant and catty notes. Taste: moderate to high bitterness with light to moderate sweetness, some salt and acidity. Flavour is on the hoppy side with some strange medicinal and alcohol notes. Bitter and tart finish. Good.
