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.

wheresthepath (2299) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - APR 19, 2014
Cask at the Hope Tap, Reading. Mahogany in hue with a thick creamy head. Oak and fake chocolate and roasty malt and pepper and dryness and- oh dear- some quite aggressive leafy grapefruit hops that really dont go. No, really not impressed by this, its very unbalanced. Rather watery too by the end. Not a good mild, think theyve rather missed the point of a mild here. More like a really crap, weak black IPA. I dont like it. Much as I like US hops, brewers need to realise that just shoving them willy nilly into every beer doesnt always work.

DruncanVeasey (8225) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - APR 15, 2014
UPDATED: JUN 9, 2015 1)Spoonsfest #37, The Babington, Derby, 11/04/14. Heavy ruby swathed with beige. This is good; soft smoked chocolate and tobacco; Imperial Leather and lactic alkalinity, good roasted nut finish. Nose is roasted veg, D&B, oak and malt loaf. Elegant little sipper. 747414, 2) The Felix, Nuneaton. Sneaking lychee nose with molten Neopolitan aspects and barely a puff of coal dust. Deep layered ruby with a tight cream foam lacing ornately with each sip. Mild leaning towards BIPA with shavings of bitter chocolate, cocoa, blueberry and delicate lychee hop. Lets call it New World Mild. Almost a perfect sessions beer showcasing everything great about British cask beer and Pacific hops one handy pint size package. 848416.
