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.

ninecats (527) - Uddevalla, SWEDEN - SEP 21, 2014
Pours deep ruby/dark brown with a huge beige quickly dissipating head leaving lots of lacings. Aroma is flowery, some roasted notes, coffee. Taste is bitter up-front with grass, flowers, some malty tones before ending quite lingering bitter. Light to medium body, medium carbo, sharp bubbles. It says 23 IBU but it feels like it was way more. The bitterness probably comes through this much due to the fairly weak body.

RickFifty (1200) - Fredrikstad, NORWAY - AUG 13, 2014
Deep red-brown color, thick beige head. Dried fruit nose, brown sugar, roasted malt, coffee. Sweet taste, roasted malt, coffee, chocolate, metallic notes, bitter finish. Big aromas and taste considering the low abv, but the taste fades quickly. Thin body, lively carbonation.

JorgeLee (2017) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 31, 2014
Cask in the Euston Tap. Dark brown with reddish depths, white foam. Surprisingly bitter, agree its more like a low abv black ipa than anything else. Or you could just call it a dark session beer, very bitter, both hops and a bit of malts, with herbal nettle and a bit of aniseed. Moreish. Doesnt quite sit together but went down well.
