2013 'Champion of Champions' was Skull Splitter.

Skull Splitter is a particular favourite at the Chadlington Beer Festival - on the nose it has a fruity malt character, with hints of dark fruit, spicy hop, dates and figs, but on the palate, it's rich and complex with sweet toasted malt, molasses, fresh and dried fruit and hints of warming spices - a fabulous beer and a deserving champion.
