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 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.

I'll be honest, I didn't read the reviews too closely and was expecting something along the lines of a Black IPA here i.e. that the colour is not indicative of the flavour, which in this case would be a delicious stout!! Sadly, I was disappointed on the first sip, and although this is a fairly solid strong beer in its own right, it lacks any real defining features. In any case, I would prefer a proper stout, tasty barleywine, strong tripel or a good imperial IPA over this directionless brew!
