Christmas 2018 releases: Trespass Dark Farmhouse Ale with Blackberries & Blowhard Imperial Stout aged in Jameson Barrels

Trespass Dark Farmhouse Ale with Blackberries 7.5% ABV Blowhard Imperial Stout aged in Jameson Barrels 12% ABV Following from the success of our barrel-aged releases from 2017 (The Holly King and The Oak King) and 2016 (The Dukes of Burgundy trilogy), we are releasing a brace of barrel-aged beauties for Christmas 2018.

We aged this in Burgundy pinot noir and chardonnay wine barrels for 13 months, then added even more blackberries to create a rich, dark and complex blackberry farmhouse ale. We called it Trespass: the sweetest blackberries always grow on another man’s bush. Limited draught. 750ml bottles.
