Strong Suffolk Vintage Ale
Originally Strong Suffolk Vintage Ale, this was renamed Strong Suffolk Dark Ale in Greene King's 2013 rebrand. It is sold as Olde Suffolk English ale in the USA.
A blend of two ales: Old 5X , which is brewed to the maximum strength possible (around 12% abv) and left to mature in 100-barrel oak vats for a minimum of two years, and BPA, a dark, full-bodied freshly brewed beer which is added just before bottling. The result is a unique beer - strong (6% abv), dark, fruity, oaky and very, very special.
