Deep amber with cinder toffee and navel oranges flavours. Full and rich.
This barley wine is golden in colour with a luscious malty body. A complex blend of hops give an interesting depth and balancing bitterness. The finish lingers with a rich warmth. Something very special.
Very pale Maris Otter malt and traditional English Goldings hops replicate the original pale bitter. Bitterness is robust but well rounded with a spicy peppery finish and heady esters.
Golden in colour, this dry, clean tasting and aromatic ale makes the ultimate thirst quencher. Made in the modern style using the latest aromatic hops, Cloister is in the mode of a Durham "White Beer".
An old fashioned English dark strong bitter. Based on an original 1937 recipe, this ruby coloured beer balances generous quantities of Goldings hops with luscious dark malt.
Pale malt gives this beer its straw colour but hops define its character, with a fruity aroma, a clean bitter mouthfeel and a lingering dry, citrus-like finish.
Superb strong sipping beer from the doyen of English strong ale brewing
This is a very rich, golden, original style IPA. Despite being strong, this beer is not too sweet, but has a luscious malty base over which a complex bitterness makes balancing, thirst quenching properties.
Excellent interpretation of a Russian Imperial Stout. This superb beer is deep ruby in colour, with plenty of coffee and liquorice flavour, underpinned by a massive malt body and heady alcohol.
While the word "stout" has come to mean a dark beer, the original meaning was "strong and true". Before the porter brewers commandeered the word to mean a stout, or strong, porter it referred to any strong beer.
