Murrays Wild Thing
Brewery: Murrays Craft Brewing Co.
Style: Imperial Stout
Format: 330ml Bottle
Inspired by the great stouts favoured by Russian Imperial Court, Murray's “Wild Thing” Imperial Stout is a beer fit for a Czar. A massive, intense drinking experience. The colour is black. Totally black. The heart of darkness. 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 rum notes 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 and roast grain bite to balance. And then there's the mouthfeel… Full bodied is an understatement. 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. A tiny batch of a huge beer – only 1100 bottles brewed. A beer to savour if you dare!
WHAT OTHER CUSTOMERS ARE SAYING
Nose of chocolate Christmas cake. Seriously thick & smooth. Rich roasted flavours. Bitter, light spice finish with long roasted malt linger.
