Don’t be put off by the beers high alcohol content. Certainly not a session ale but full of vibrant flavours, it has a rich and bright copper colour, with a white creamy head.

A hint of banana’s on the nose, with a smooth and creamy mouth feel, but beefed up by a punchy alcohol kick.

Chunky, Flavoursome, Powerful, with hints of liquorice on the palate, with sweet malty biscuity undertones.

Savour the long delicious, digestive biscuit malty finish.

A beautiful black smooth stout with a fluffy cappucino head.

Brewery –          Saltaire

Beer –                  Hazlenut Coffee Porter

Alcohol –          4.6%

Origin –              Shipley, West Yorkshire

Style –                Porter

Season –            Winter

If that name doesn’t temp you then I sure hope this write up does!

Dark Brown with a reddish tint, and a foamy creamy tan head, it has a sweet hazlenut nose, with a beautifully luxurious, silky texture.

The ‘coffee’ in the name is slightly misleading as the coffee taste is consigned to the background, whilst vanilla, and nutty notes burst on the palate.

It’s quite heavy going due to the strong flavours, but despite the creamy taste, it has a suprisingly dry finish which leaves you looking forward to the next gulp!

Don’t expect to be able to sink a few of these but I reckon you loosen your belt, put on your Christmas jumper and glug down this sumptuous ale.

Yummy

Style –               Chocolate Stout

Season –            Winter

WOW!

When I first saw this beer in the Pied-Bull in Chester, the bar man told me that this wold not be ‘as chocolatey as I expect’.

Clearly this guy had not tried the beer because it surpassed my expectations and then some.

Most ‘Chocolate Stouts’ have a solid coffee backbone but this was extremely smooth, a slight bitterness from the chocolate, but incredibly easy drinking.

Silky velvety black, with a tan head, it tastes like a chocolate fudge cake, with lashings of double cream,
