Details

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 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!

Drinking this feels like pure indulgence. Each mouthful is endlessly fascinating, and as strong as it is you'll want to take your time over it. You won't want to share though!

Truly extraordinary. Enormous body and flavour, unfathomable depth. So much going on here - heavy aniseed, rich coffee a smoky undertone. Durham are adept at taking classic styles up a notch. They have surpassed themselves here.
