Our original ruby brown premium beer, Brodie’s Prime, brewed to export strength and bottle conditioned to create a rich, complex, strong dark ale. English Maris Otter malted barley, dark malts and a medley of English and American hops produce aromas of dark chocolate, treacle sweet flavours, roasted bitterness, a surprising fruitiness and a long dry finish.

Bottle from Open All hours in Keskwick. Pours mahogany with a beige head. Boozy red fruit aroma. The taste has light spice and caramel along with raisin, red fruits and port. There’s a lingering bitter finish along with warming alcohol. Quite nice.

jamesie1857 (1763) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - AUG 12, 2015
330ml bottle from Hawkshead Beer Hall - Deep black body with a browny hue, tan head. Nose is treacle, coffee, liquorice, and burnt toast. Taste is a little harsh, sharp and butter with the burnt features in the background. I was hoping for a little better, but there was something a little too raw about this one.
