Durham Temptation

£4.49

Style Stout
Country British Beers
ABV 10%
Serving Temp 10 °C
Bottle Size 500ml
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!

  1. Beautifully Crafted
    Review by tt

    I love imperial stouts, and this one is excellent, well balanced flavours. (Posted on 14/06/2017)

  2. Wonderful
    Review by Dale

    Has to be one of the best beers, never mind stouts out there. World class. (Posted on 09/05/2017)

  3. Great Imperial Stout
    Review by Ben

    A very well brewed, tasty imperial stout. Nothing unique but just very well crafted. (Posted on 03/05/2017)

  4. Night night juice
    Review by Garygph

    Dark strong liquorice tangy aftertaste. Good night juice (Posted on 18/04/2017)

  5. Give into Temptation
    Review by Jack Swans

    Mother superior of an Imperial Stout. The best I have bought from Beerhawk since they stopped selling Kernel beers. If your tempted - give in, it's good for your soul. (Posted on 24/03/2017)

  6. Give into Temptation
    Review by Jack Swans

    This is a great imperial stout. One of the best that I have tried. Only bettered, in my opinion, by the offerings ofthe Kernel Brewery. At least in the UK. (Posted on 23/03/2017)

  7. Stunning stout
    Review by Shogun warrior

    As a lover of the black stuff in most of its forms I have to say I have fallen head first into Temptation.
    Stunning flavour, deep, rich and complex with a hint of liquorice and like drinking liquid 90% chocolate.
    Way too easy to drink and you definitely know you had it. Fabulous beer (Posted on 07/02/2017)

  8. Lead me to it.
    Review by Danny Boy

    Where do I begin? Rich, toasty, creamy, chocolatey. I do love a good imperial stout & this is easily right up there. I'm planning on purchasing this one again with my next order, as I don't see this one in the bottle shops & I live in London (I imagine few make it outside Durham). I'd like to see if I can resist the Temptation to drink next time, as apparently this is a beer that ages very well. (Posted on 04/02/2017)

  9. Give in
    Review by Good head

    A deep black colour with no head and a silky smooth and thick feel. A really strong flavour that coats the tongue, this is a beer of pleasure and one that I would recommend, but not necessarily share! (Posted on 14/12/2016)

  10. Magnificent
    Review by Paul

    A full on Imperial stout, rich, creamy, oily. One of the best stouts around (Posted on 04/10/2016)

  11. Very easy to drink
    Review by Mik

    Very balanced imperial stout. Easy to drink despite 10%. Smooth on the tongue. (Posted on 17/08/2016)

  12. Interesting
    Review by JDW38

    Pours very dark, off-white/tan head. Chocolate and slight coffee on the nose but also very strong alcohol notes that I found somewhat off-putting. Boozy fruitcake and chocolate with roasted malt taste. Again the very strongly alcoholic aftertaste came through which for me made it less enjoyable. Just personal taste though and still an excellent example of the style. (Posted on 31/07/2016)

  13. Luxurious
    Review by Ben

    Perfect stout, thick, bursting with flavour. (Posted on 29/07/2016)

  14. Tempting
    Review by Llamaman

    Whoah. Big beer this one, in every sense.
    Bags of flavour - coffee and chocolate dominate as you'd expect, but there's also a boozy hit that makes it hard going. You could cut yourself a slice. Definitely a night cap. (Posted on 13/07/2016)

  15. strong
    Review by Harry

    A strong and tasty stout. I enjoyed it. Something good to sip on if you like stronger stouts on the sweeter side. (Posted on 22/06/2016)

  16. nearly
    Review by doomlord

    not the smoothest or most refined imperial stout althought potent the alchohol was prevalent in the aftertaste and it found it slightly acidic (Posted on 29/05/2016)

  17. Very good Imperial Stout.
    Review by simontomlinson

    Near white head left a skim - probably a bit too cold.
    Great chocolate, coffee, malt & stewed fruit aroma.
    Very smooth on the tongue - almost like velvet.
    Coffee, malt, plum & red berries with a strong alcohol presence.

  18. Boom!
    Review by Kaz

    At 10% this certainly packs a punch, so take your time with it! It's worth it though, a rich creamy stout, one of the best examples of the kind that I've had. Recommended. (Posted on 26/04/2016)

  19. Beyond Temptation
    Review by Ninja Terrier

    This is very easy drinking for a 10% brew. All of the usual stout flavours are there in abundance. This will be going on my favorites list. (Posted on 13/03/2016)

  20. Potent
    Review by David 1985

    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)

  21. Knockout drops!
    Review by BJ 53

    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)

  22. Tempted?
    Review by Ady Gray

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

  23. 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)

  24. Decent
    Review by John

    Very pleasant. Not as good as Cocoa Psycho but enjoyable. (Posted on 07/11/2015)

  25. 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)

  26. 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)

  27. 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)

  28. 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)

  29. 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)

  30. rich taste
    Review by bob

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

  31. 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)

  32. 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)
