759: Durham Brewery | Temptation

The brewery: "We are masters of our craft and this can be tasted in every mouthful. Continually creating award winning beers since 1994, we never get tired of experimenting."

The beer: "Imperial Russian Stout with massive body supports oily coffee, liquorice and chocolate flavours."

This is not the strongest stout in their line up - the limited edition Imperious is 11.5% A.B.V. - but this was certainly something special. Very powerful indeed but one to sip rather than glug back.
If anything I found it a little too overpowering - I preferred the weaker but still potent Insane Darkness from Allendale brewery if I'm honest.
