Dark brown, a little roasty but w some tartness. Quite sweet, rich stingy malt but tempered by Belgiany sift yeast accents.

bluevegie (3042) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - SEP 13, 2012
Black body with lasting tan head. A little bit thick and heavy in the mouth but does taste all right, coffee, liquorice and some chocolate notes.

maneliquor (2780) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JUL 24, 2012
UPDATED: SEP 6, 2012 Bottle from Mane Liquor. Pours viscous black with little to no head. Nose is very farmhousey with a touch of roasted malts and the slightest hint of milk chocolate. The funkiness of the nose overrides the other notes, not necessarily in a bad way. Taste starts out with your typical farmhouse notes. It slowly creeps into milk chocolate and roasted woodiness. Finishes very dry with a touch of funk on the finish. A very unusual beer. Canít believe this is over 10%. Tastes more like a 5% brew/ Weird stuff but pretty tasty

mkel07 (2520) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - SEP 1, 2012
330ml bottle. Pours a jet black colour with a latte coloured head that builds. Aniseed and licorice in the aroma. Thick in the mouth with a big bold flavour thatbhits all parts of the mouth.

hawthorne00 (2251) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - AUG 18, 2012
UPDATED: MAR 2, 2014 [8/12] Bottle, 14C. Black with a small tan head that fades to a coat. Aroma of roasted malt, weeds, earth, chicory. Not that sweet, but taste has molasses and kola nut, powdery cocoa. Astringent, earthy and herbal with vague bitterness. Warming rather than hot alcohol. Faintly rummy. No residual sweetness. Interesting, but the flavours donít (yet?) meld together. [3.4]

[3/13] Bottle, 12C. Black with an inch of tan head. Mysterious funky earthy aroma with coffee and chicory, roasted barley, dark berries. Tight powerful roasted flavours, dark rum, pinot noir, cocoa. Insistent coffee, spices and zingy astringent flavours build. Now seems coiled. [3.6]

[3/14] Black with an inch of tan head that lasts well. Lots of chicory, light roasted coffee, earthy. Body was never substantial, seems to be thinning. Quite interesting. Not clear this is going anywhere, though.

davidm (1926) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - AUG 25, 2012
Bottle from King&Godfree. Exceptional, pumped up black IPA. Aromas of caramel, chocolate, and notes of grass, flowers, and liquorice. Taste is sweet and bitter, with very long length. Palate is syrupy, and full bodied. Black, with a frothy head.

highlandlad (1402) - Blue Mountains, AUSTRALIA - JUN 16, 2013
A big beer by most standards and best appreciated by the some who like it hot. This is a late-night fireside sipper, with prominent alcohol and a throat-burning swallow. They could strap barrels of this to St Bernards. Impenetrable dark brown with a short but persistent caramel head. Aroma is heavy on chocolate malt - Milo, cocoa powder, some prickly spice and marshmallow sweetness. Thick and creamy. Richly flavoured and yes, earthy. Cherry Ripe, Cointreau and licorice root. As well made as everything Murrays produces. Not a stout Iíd want every night but perfect for the cold months. (33cl bottle from Steveís Cool Booze, Kingsford. BB 2014)

Sevenlee (1193) - Central Coast, NSW, AUSTRALIA - FEB 25, 2013
Pours black with a light brown head. Aroma is sweet, malt, fruit, raisin, caramel and chocolate. Taste is very sweet and too much alcohol which kind of overwhelms everything with little roastiness or bitterness. Decent but probably the first Murrays beer Iíve had that I was less than impressed with.
