Multi-award winning, bottle-conditioned legends. Family owned and brewing from a 10 barrel plant, Durham makes 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.

The Durham Black Bishop stout is intense in flavour but not in body or strength making it an entirely quaffable and interesting beer. The Black Bishop has flavours and aromas of a roasty coffee, peat, and a sweet chocolate and caramel; smokey notes are definitely at the forefront. Our director, Mark, likes this beer so much he necked half the bottle before the rest of us had a chance to try some. Thanks for sharing!

Too fizzy for my personal taste

Was really looking forward to this bottle-conditioned stout in its great looking bottle. But I didn't find it enjoyable to drink. Way too fizzy for my liking and if the flavours were there, the fizziness prevented me for really tasting them.
