The latest in the innovative seasonal range from the famous ‘witch brewer’, Black Moss (4.9%) takes its name from an ancient derelict cottage discovered only last year – complete with mummified cat – in the shadow of brooding Pendle Hill. Tasting notes describe the brew as: ‘Classic dry stout ale, black and full bodied with a rich creamy head. Fine roasted rich coffee and chocolate aromas … rounded with traditional English Challenger and Goldings hops’.
