Celt Experience Dark

Popped into the Pen & Wig in Newport for a quick pint, it was a nice surprise to see a beer from the Celt Experience Brewery in Caerphilly on the bar alongside the usual Brains SA, Flowers IPA and Bass.
It is the first time I have tried this beer and it does not dissapoint, a black with dark red hues and poured with a tight white head, yes the pub does use swan neck handpumps but there is no problem with this particular beer. A rich dark aroma of treacle and coffee leads to a smooth bittersweet taste and complex aftertaste with some liquorice tones. Chewy, roasted flavours in the finish as well. A surprisingly complex beer but highly enjoyable.
Off to the bar for another I think!
