Murray's Wild Thing Whisky
Style: Imperial/Double Stout
Format: 375ml Can
Inspired by the great stouts favoured by the Russian Imperial Court, the original Murray's cult beer, 'Wild Thing' Imperial Stout, is a massive, intense drinking experience. This year, it's extra wild from conditioning on whisky barrel staves. An intense hit of mocha, with some roast malt sweetness, combining with the barrel oak to give a complex, yet rounded flavour. An aggressive addition of hops gives bitterness to balance. The colour is intensely black.
WHAT OTHER CUSTOMERS ARE SAYING
Roasted malt, raisin and rich choc nose. Bold and rich roast and briney flavours. Hints of dark fruit and drying oak with subtle whisky notes. Bitter cocoa finish and linger. Intense. RIS like. Evens out as it warms. Traces of peat late.
More like sipping on a whiskey
Quite yummy but you get all of the alcohol so this is more of a sipper.
The only thing letting this beer down is the fact that it comes in a 375ml can. The flavour is so intense, from dark malts, hops, smoke from the barrel ageing, and of course, alcohol, that it is hard to finish a can that size on your own. Would be 5 star if it was in a 250ml can.
