About The Beer
Brewery: Murray's Brewing Co
Style: Imperial/Double Stout
Format: 375ml Can
Murray's 'Wild Thing' Imperial Stout was inspired by the great stouts favoured by the Russian Imperial Court. A massive, intense drinking experience. The colour is black. Totally black. Impossible to see through even when held up to the light - nothing insipid about this beer.
Aromas of strong dark chocolate, a little fruitiness from the hops and yeast and some rumminess from the alcohol. The flavour is an intense hit of mocha - bitter dark chocolate bordering on coffee. Some malt sweetness but an aggressive hop bitterness. Massive mouth-fillling malt that almost overwhelms, before the freight train of the bitterness from the hops and the roast acidity kicks in to clean up the palate.
