Durham Temptation

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!

At a glance Bottle ConditionedBeerHawk FavoriteAward Winning
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
  1. Overwhelmed by the alcohol Review by Cresp

    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)

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

    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)

  3. 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)

  4. Strong stout Review by BitZimBobs

    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)

  5. Powweful Stuff Review by leonidasthewookiee

    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)

    very rich and creamy, dark chocolate, licorice , coffee, beautiful Irish stout (Posted on 18/01/2015)

  7. The Dark Side Review by Ay Pee Horne

    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)

  8. Very strong Review by Kath

    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)

My order arrived on time in perfect condition. I was kept informed about the estimated arrival time of my order via text and email. I am completely happy with the service.
Hmmmm I do not like writing negative reviews and have used Beer Hawk before and they have been great but I am left a little underwhelmed. Simply I ordered the Oktoberfest selection with great anticipation and expected 15 different beers I have never tried to arrive, (the previous box had contained 15 different beers and was a massive party hit.) The first issue was probably my excitement as after ordering I got an email telling me my beers were in the warehouse and ready for dispatch.... after 2 days I had heard nothing and contacted Beer Hawk only to be told they were still in the warehouse ready to be sent and would be shortly. They arrived 2 days later which is not bad but my excitement and an expectation of an Amazon esque delivery window meant the 4 days felt like an eternity. What would have helped was an indication of the length of time when ordering as I would have gone for the express option. The second issue is just instead of 15 different beers I got 5 different beers but 3 of each. I won't complain as they are good beers but I am surprised why there were only 5 different ones.... Thus, all in all it was just a little disappointing and underwhelming.
Although the delivery company brought the two boxes separately on different days, the selection of beer was great. It is the second year my wife and I have ordered the Oktoberfest box because we enjoy it so much. Great work !
