3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Sampled on handpump at the Church Inn, Saddleworth, where the beer is brewed. A lovely pub next to the isolated St Chads Church high on the edge of the moors above Uppermill, with views down into the valley. Plus there’s an excellent J W Lees pub (the Cross Keys) just a little further up the hill, with a helpfully signposted footpath between the two. I had this beer down as a stout but I see that other sources have it as a strong bitter, whilst the commercial description has is as a "stout/porter bitter". That seems to cover all the angles. Whatever it is, I thought it was a superb beer. very dark, very rich with a creamy beige head. Lots of roast malt and touches of coffee in the aroma. Dried fruit and mocha in the flavour. Dry finish. Excellent.
