Notes/Commercial Description:
Lose yourself in this voluptuous beast of a beer. A twenty-first century hop overdose. This mother will seduce you, ravish you and you’ll be back gagging for more. Adore it. Lust for it. Fall for it. Libertine Black Ale is a dark hop bomb combining the hop awesomeness of an IPA, the decadent and indulgent malt flavours of a stout with an insatiable drinkability that belies the punch that this beer packs. A Dark Knight amongst pale knaves. Taste the hops, live the dream. Learn to speak beer, love fruit and never forget you come from a long line of truth seekers, dreamers and warriors… the outlaw elite. Ride toward anarchy and caramel craziness. Let the sharp bitter finish rip you straight to the tits. Swallow hard – this beer bites.

65 IBU

330ml poured into a pint glass. BB date feb 2015

A - jet black, opaque, pours a thin off white head. Thin lacing

A - roasted malt, coca cola and a big chunk of floral odours. Throw in a faint whiff of coffee

T - very good mix - the citrus (orange), grapefruit and brillant hoppy bitterness of an IPA, blending well with the roasted malt, milk chocolate and coffee tinge of a dry stout. Great balance

M - creamy texture, soft carbonation, medium bodied, alcohol is muted.

O - very good mix of an IPA and stout. It brings out the best of both - the brillant floral bitterness with the roasted malts and choc. Yet neither is too strong. Give it a crack!

Single hopped simcoe black ale, rich and full of flavour. I had this in Brewdog Camden several times, one beer i would travel out of my way to find.

Nice and piney/resinous ale with a touch of citrus. Very smooth and tasty. Really great example of the style.
