Durham White Stout

Durham White Stout

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
Style Stout
Country British Beers
ABV 7.2%
Serving Temp 10 °C
Bottle Size 500ml
White Stouts are unusual but very traditional indeed. Today, stout is synonymous with dark beer but originally stout was used more literally to describe "strong and true" beers. This is just such a beer at its core; it's strong, "stout" and pale and is a wonderful platform on which to commence a spicy, hoppy, total palate assault. It has an intense bitterness that mellows over time if left to mature.

Product Reviews

  • A bit Belgian?

    Review by David

    Not at all what I was expecting. Very much like a Belgian abbey ale and none-the-worse for it. Worth a try as a bit of an oddity. (Posted on 03/10/2017)

  • Bitter sweet

    Review by Marit

    Hoppy and sweet white stout, with a light finish. Like Durham's darker 'Temptation', it's boozy and warming, but bitterness rules here. Decent beer, but lacks identity. (Posted on 27/06/2017)

  • Fake stout!

    Review by mik

    It's not a stout really, in the sense that it doesn't have those hints of chocolate or coffee. (Posted on 06/06/2017)

  • You've got the white stuff...

    Review by Llamaman

    It's 'stout' in the sense of 'strong' - don't be expecting roasted malts, coffee and chocolate!
    It's a strong pale ale - pours a hazy copper with a lacy head that quickly dissipates. Texture is a little syrupy.
    To taste, it's initially fruity (pear drops?) and spicy (black pepper), there's a quick burst of sweetness then a long, bitter finish.
    It rewards sipping, which is just as well at 7.2%.

  • Something different

    Review by Vauban

    Not really a stout (in any way I'd understand it) but a strong light ale, with hints of coriander (I thought) - a bit like Blue Moon. A drink for a hot afternoon - but treat with respect, as it goes down very easily! (Posted on 10/08/2016)

  • A favourite.

    Review by 101proof

    One of my favourites. A good solid base with a nice hoppy finish. Very drinkable (Posted on 04/08/2016)

  • Not dark

    Review by Good head

    Really lovely golden colour. Lively and foamy head. Really good stout flavour. Would definitely buy again. (Posted on 26/06/2016)

  • Lovely

    Review by Irv

    Full bodied ,not at all bitter or sour,lovely (Posted on 16/06/2016)

  • Ok

    Review by Michyh

    Cool thing that kept me cool (Posted on 28/05/2016)

  • Strong taste

    Review by Beerman

    Big head, strong aftertaste, golden colour. Something different and I enjoyed it. Another premium beer from Durham (Posted on 17/05/2016)

  • I don't understand this one

    Review by simontomlinson

    Brilliant white head sat on a opaque copper coloured body.
    Creamy nutmeg aroma.
    Crisp clean feel on the tongue - feel's like a premium bitter.
    Spicy with quite tart tastes of lemon, coriander & yeast.
    Either my eyes are deceiving my taste buds or this has the wrong label on. I've never tasted a White Stout before & there is nothing wrong with it but .......it's not stout - it's lager textured bitter!

  • Enjoyable

    Review by Blind_Drunk

    I am a lover of stouts but didn't know you could get a white stout. So of course I had to give this a go and I wasn't disappointed, it was a very enjoyable pint (Posted on 02/04/2016)

  • Black > white stout

    Review by Ole

    I don't know what it is, but I didn't like it very much. Too boring. (Posted on 29/03/2016)

  • A deceptively good stout

    Review by Kent Hatter

    Very strong and a tad confusing! White stout intrigued me so I had to buy it and it does have flavour a-plenty, even if it does confuse the brain! (Posted on 17/02/2016)

  • A nice change

    Review by Robo125

    I always like to try things a bit different and you cant get much different than a stout that is not Black. Wasn\'t expecting much but must say it is a lovely beer with a nice bitter finish (Posted on 27/01/2016)

  • Confused?

    Review by Ady Gray

    Some folk find this as confusing as a black IPA but, in reality, the beer does the talking. This is a stout in every manner and a very good one at that (Posted on 26/12/2015)

  • Average

    Review by Andrew

    Sounds like an interesting beer but is a bit average. It is quite a strong beer but the strength overwhelms the flavour a little unlike Belgian strong beers (Posted on 20/08/2015)

  • Great paradox of name and taste

    Review by A white stout?

    Ignore anything you think you may expect in a stout, this White Stout is certainly a stong beer (where the original meaning of stout came from) but an incredible taste that will ensure you don't judge based on a name. (Posted on 19/08/2015)

  • Excellent

    Review by Stu_the_Beer_Baron

    A white stout is, in the old sense of the word, a good quality, strong, premium beer. This does exactly that - at 7.2%, it takes on a slightly syrupy texture, but has lots of flavour. I really liked this one! (Posted on 14/08/2015)

  • durhams finest

    Review by redders

    Good strong ale note this is stout as in strong and is a english strong ale and not a stout (Posted on 13/08/2015)

  • An interesting surprise

    Review by Elliott.jh

    To be honest I didn't know what to expect from this beer, but i have to say i rather enjoyed it.
    Reasonably full bodied and you can taste every decimal of the ABV.
    I would say its definitely worth a punt for anyone who hasn't had a white stout before. (Posted on 10/08/2015)

  • Not sure

    Review by Abdyman

    This beer was confusing my brain, it does have some of the tastes and feel of a stout but is clear and golden, very unlike a stout.
    Very nice though once you get past the confusion, smooth feel, and great flavours. (Posted on 06/05/2015)

  • White Gold

    Review by 101proof

    A lovely full bodied ale with a great smell and taste. A little too hoppy for me. (Posted on 04/04/2015)

  • Tasty

    Review by 101proof

    A nice, smooth ale. Quite bitter with a great smell and head. A bit too hoppy for me though (Posted on 03/04/2015)

  • A *white* stout?! You betcha ...

    Review by interzen

    Well now, this is different - as any fool knows, stouts are meant to be black. Durham Brewery think otherwise.

    This is definitely an interesting one - pours like an IPA with a big head, smells sweet and grainy and tastes of malt, pears and alcohol. It's definitely interesting although it's fairly sweet and heavy on the palate, and some might find the alcoholic aftertaste a bit offputting.

    Well worth a punt if you want to try something different (although I'm slightly biased as I grew up near where Durham Brewery is now situated!) (Posted on 13/02/2015)

  • Back to black

    Review by Jack Swans

    Strong ale, good level of bitterness so stoutly stout. But it just didn't feel right. I am used to smoke, tar, burned coffee when I drink stouts, and of course it's the wrong colour. Atavistic strong beer. Back to black then. (Posted on 02/02/2015)

  • strong

    Review by bob

    Nice beer , strong both in strength and flavor. good value also (Posted on 23/01/2015)

  • A bit odd....

    Review by Ay Pee Horne

    Hmmm, wasn't quite sure about this one. My mouth kept telling me something was up. My eyes said pale ale, my tongue said a stout that's a bit 'off'. Not an entirely unpleasant beer, but I prefer my stout as black as night. (Posted on 25/11/2014)

  • Strong and tasty White Stout

    Review by Beer Hawk Tom

    Drank this beer early afternoon on an empty stomach and it went straight to my head! A very tasty, full bodied pale beer that is stronger than I thought it would be. (Posted on 03/11/2014)

  • Bubbly & Bitter

    Review by Mark

    Lovely beer - clear, golden and with a bubbly head. A fairly bitter aftertaste, but one that makes me want another! (Posted on 31/10/2014)
