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.

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.

The main reason for the high scores is the fact it makes me want to take another sip. It has a good hop taste, which I am looking for, and the dark malty flavors are great for the cold weather. There is a lot of good happening in this beer and I keep going back for more. It is a very smooth beer which makes this, in my opinion, to be a great beer for someone just venturing into the darker beer universe.

Appearance: Pours a jet-black liquid with medium effervescence and thick mocha head.

Aroma: Nicely achieved dark malt & hop balance. Medium intensity. Notes are of chocolate, coffee, toffee, honey, fresh hops, citrus and dried hay. Very fresh and aromatic.

Taste: Intense and rich with the notes of hops and malt in perfect accord. There's the caramel, chocolate, fresh hops like herbal character, citric splash and a noble hops like quality.

Palate: Medium low bitterness. Medium low carbonation. Medium full bodied. ABV works well, doesn't get in the way. They got the palate and the way it works with the aromatic notes perfectly.

Overall: The first Black Ale I can really get behind of. It has great complexity and drinkibility value - it drinks like a session ale. One of my instant favourites from Brewdog.
