Durham Brewery Benedictus (8.4%)

White Rum and apple pie, that’s the business end of this fabulous Barley Wine from Durham.
There’s a thick chewy toffee apple, brown bread and Demerara sugar malt body that sticks to your lips and coats your tongue, until the pithy hedgerow and tangy orange marmalade hit of the hops bring some respite.
But like all good Barley Wines, this is all about a puddingy sweetness, lots of candied fruit and a great big slug of chest warming booze that sees the beer finish like a drunken creme brulee.
Lovely stuff.
