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.

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

4.09/5  rDev +3.3%

Poured from bottle into a goblet.
Dark brown/black in color, with a moderate-to-short head of light tan foam.
Aroma-"Inscence-like" hop aroma, faint roastiness
Taste-Dark roasted malt, oily resinous hops, caramel, faint smoke, tobacco leaf. Well-balanced and complex in flavor and character. A bit pricey but worth a try.
