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.

Is this a mild? tastes like a weak stout to me. some v slight hops, thin coffee/choc vibe, on but not hugely enjoyable, slightly thin overall feel.

Strykzone (7796) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - JUL 30, 2017
Pint bottle. Dark brown with a tan head. Fruited nose includes berries, earth, and cocoa. Low bitterness early but dark bakers chocolate bitterness late and then it becomes citrusy. Caramel, earthiness, complex dark and over ripe fruit flavors. Finishes a lot like a mild with that earthy maltiness.

Cask Pint at Wibbas Down (JDW), Wimbledon, London in April 2014 - Reddish Brown in colour. Good head. Excellent lacing. Malty; toasty/roasty malts, chocolate, coffee, caramel. Fruity; hint of dark fruits. Hoppy; slight floral hops. Sweet-bitter roasty malty chocolatey throughout. Very drinkable. (2014-04-09)

0,5l bottle at home. BB 12/2016. black color, rather big tan head. smells citric, earthy, light fruity, acidic. ok smell. medium body, rather bubbly carbonation, slick mouthfeel. tastes citric, earthy, light veggies, light smoke, acidic. finishes rather dry and acidic with some earthy and roasty notes. overall ok, quite a lot of carbonation though. decent for 4% but overall just drinkable.

ndburns (190) - Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - JUL 19, 2016
500ml bottle from Beers of Europe. Pours brown with large off-white head. Roasty aroma, some coffee, pine, smoke. Taste is surprisingly bitter, only a little sweetness, and quite a bit of hoppiness.

tricksta_p (5341) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - JUL 10, 2016
Bottle at home. Aroma is dark malt, light roasted, caramel, coffee, touch of dark chocolate and a hint of hops in the finish. Flavour is moderate bitter. Body is almost medium. Pretty good Mild Ale, surprising roasty and coffee aroma.

Fullpintofbeer (495) - Bristol, Somerset, ENGLAND - MAY 14, 2016
Cask @Knights Templar, Bristol. Dark red/copper, very hazy at the beginning and then it clears out, medium head, great lacing. Aroma of wet grain, bit of coffee and caramel. Lightly bitter taste, long finish, light body, soft carbonation. Dark, but very light and soft ale, very drinkable.

Mortlach (2531) - Rome, ITALY - MAY 14, 2016
500ml bottle @Mad for Beer (Rome). Pours deep brown with a medium off-white head. Aroma of grapefruit, pine, roasted malts, light metallic note. Flavour is light sweet with a medium bitter end, a bit unbalanced. Medium body, medium to light carbonation. Rough, not my cup of tea.

I_LUV_BEER (232) - - MAY 10, 2016
Served in a snifter from a 500ml bottle. Pours slightly hazy dark brown colour with a big beige head leaving excellent lacing in the glass. Aroma is roasted malts, coffee, smoke and wood. Taste is coffee, malty, slightly sweet and dry with a medium lasting bitter finish. Medium body with soft carbonation. Unusual and interesting beer.

phfyysik (1482) - Tartu, ESTONIA - MAY 8, 2016
Pours nut brown with huge head. Aroma is nuts, some caramel, cream, chocolate, coriander, raisin, some wood, yeast. Taste is caramel, chocolate, crispy white bread, roasted corn, some malts, aged wood. Too much carbonisation, otherwise should be good.
