Durham Brewery Black Bishop (4.1%)

black-bishopThere was a time when Durham and CAMRGB felt synonymous, they even sent me a bunch of beer called CAMRGB.
This beer reminds me why I used to love them so much and makes me wonder how and why I lost touch with them.
Rich and creamy and full of damsons and chocolate, coffee, toffee and burned wholemeal toast, at 4.1% ABV, Black Bishop is very easy drinking.
There’s a red crunchy leaf litter hopping too, and you also get a little orange juice and lemon zest, fresh herbs and mown lawns.
All this takes you to a finish that’s round and rich, all treacle tart sweetness and nettle tea dryness, Black Bishop is very good indeed.
I need to give Durham Brewery a call and get to know them all over again.
