Durham Temptation

4.6
13
Moohahahaha (*evil laugh)--this is amazing! You expect coffee, chocolates and dark liquorice from any stout, but when you swill this around your glass the deep viscous liquid beckons you with a chocolatey finger of temptation. This is a malty, creamy, full-bodied mix of every after-dinner taste you ever desired. If you want to tone down any boozy after effects of the 10% kick or are feeling particularly generous then share it with a friend!

Multi-award winning, bottle-conditioned legends. Family owned and brewing from a 10 barrel plant, Durham make a staggering range of superb brews, from low abv Pale ales right through to knock-you-round- the- back-of-the-head supercharged stouts. They've casually tossed aside the temptation to brew in bulk instead focussing on brewing to an exquisite standard. All are bottle-conditioned and we've never once had a bad one - quite an achievement given the volatility of true bottle-conditioning. Lovely

    This was one of three Stouts Bought to share with my Dad. To us this was the easiest drank, wouldn't like to know what would happen after a second bottle. (Posted on 09/02/2016)

    Simply a fantastic beer. Roasty, creamy, silky - really lovely mouthfeel. One to end the night with and a real classic in the making. (Posted on 15/01/2016)

    Bang; 10% of chocolatey goodness in a 500ml bottle. One too many and Xmas is over ;-) (Posted on 25/12/2015)

  4. Lead us not into... Review by Grrrroooooovvvy

    Ohh. Sweet blackcurrant and liquorice smoothness. Too easy on the tongue. A strong stout with a real woozy feel, but the fruit and malts are there in plenty to provide a truly pleasant sipping experience (Posted on 29/11/2015)

  6. Overwhelmed by the alcohol Review by Cresp
    Rating

    After all the positive ratings I thought I would give this a try. On the nose, you can smell a little bit of liquorice and coffee, but it is overshadowed by a boozy smell, and unfortunately that is all I could taste too it isn\'t bad but I expected much more. (Posted on 07/09/2015)

  7. Not bad, but a bit too 'boozy' Review by interzen
    Rating

    Make no mistake, this is a full-on Imperial stout and a fairly big hitter to boot - just to make life even more interesting, it comes in a 500ml bottle so the value-for-money score is pretty high.

    Thick, black and, well, fairly stout - this weighs in at 10% and, for me at least, this was quite noticeable - all the 'typical' stout flavours are present and correct (coffee, chocolate, toasted malts etc.) but there's a strong undercurrent of alcohol too. Given that stouts of similar strength (eg. De Molen Hemel & Aarde) can disguise it quite well, this is a bit disappointing.

    Not to be dismissed out of hand by any means, but a bit more masking of the alcohol would make this a real winner. (Posted on 28/08/2015)

  8. Well worth it Review by z

    Don't be deterred by the price, as you get high volume, strength and taste. Never seen this stout before so had to try it and would certainly recommend. (Posted on 09/08/2015)

  9. Strong stout Review by BitZimBobs
    Rating

    This is a strong Stout. It had my head spinning. In lovely way of course. Very deep, bold, earthy, chocolatey flavour for me. I'm on a Stout tasting crusade - this is definitely one of the good ones. (Posted on 26/06/2015)

    An absolute must for lovers of stout or just beer in general. Hard not to drink this too fast but savor it! (Posted on 16/05/2015)

  12. The Dark Side Review by Ay Pee Horne
    Rating

    Cracking IRS and good value for the money. Powerful, velvety mouthfeel. Dark chocolate, burnt coffee beans, thick treacle. Not one to go mad with, get two glasses and split with a pal. (Posted on 25/11/2014)

  13. Very strong Review by Kath
    Rating

    This is my husbands favourite so far. He says it's the equivalent of pouring a whole bottle of wine in a glass and drinking it! Incredibly strong but incredibly tasty was his verdict - although it was difficult to understand him as his speech was slightly slurred. (Posted on 31/08/2014)
