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!

On opening the bottle all seemed normal, but on slow careful pouring it was obvious it was going to be a 2 glass job. Even after being fridged for 2 days and being under serving temperature suggestion the beige head took up more of the glass than the stout itself. Tastewise it was smooth, light to medium-bodied with a slight bitter and smoky finish. Nothing remarkable however and you could "taste" the low ABV

Really didn't enjoy this one, I'm afraid. Missed out on a lot of the flavours that others have commented on, and far too fizzy for a stout.
