A dark, vinous, old-style, English Northern Brown Ale that is bottle conditioned for 100 days. Brewed from a cunning blend of Maris Otter pale ale winter barley, crystal malt and chocolate malt. Bittered and flavoured with three English hops. Fermented with live English ale yeast.
"Massive winey bouquet of rich fruit with peppery hop notes. Toffee & roasted malt in the mouth with a deep bitter-sweet liquorice finish".
