A full-bodied, dark brown, strong ale. Slightly malty but with hints of roast coffee and liquorice. A smooth caramel overlay and a complex fruitiness leads to a bitter chocolate finish.
Pale brown with a faint malty and fruity aroma. Malt and fruit flavours dominate the taste with a balancing bitterness, making for an easy-drinking beer of deceptive strength.
Powerful fruitiness, with flavours reminiscent of redcurrants, raspberries and strawberries intermingled with citrus notes. The fruitiness is balanced out by the famous Ruddles bitterness and by a delicate aroma.
A full-bodied, very distinctive beer with a bitter-sweet aftertaste.
A beer which really needs no introduction. Arguably the most decorated beer in recent British brewing history. A rich, complex, dark ruby porter from an 1872 recipe. It has an old port nose, coffee and bitter chocolate flavours from four malts including finest Maris Otter and English hops. Supreme Champion Beer of Britain. Three times National Winter Ales Champion.
