Audit Ale – ABV 8.0%, 750ml
Dark copper barley wine bursting with marvellous marmalade aromas. Berries and spice cascade the palate, followed by a smooth sweet finish. An exceptional example of a unique style of beer and won champion Winter beer of Britain at The Great British Beer Festival in 2019.
Old Nogg- ABV 6.0%, 750ml
Charming dark ale, slightly nutty with an abundance of warm woody tones. Hints of dark fruits and pine aroma tingle the senses.
