""""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 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 and roast grain bite to balance. And then there’s the mouthfeel… Full bodied is an understatement. Massive mouthfillling 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!""""

Shark_Pants (609) - AUSTRALIA - SEP 13, 2014
UPDATED: JUN 12, 2015 Pours darkest brown with not much carbonation, small mocha head that quickly recedes leaving a soapy brown film. Aromas include charred steak, mocha coffee and some caramel. Taste is bittersweet dark chocolate, a little toffee, then coffee bitter and dries out with peppery charred meat in the finish. Didn?t get any of the purported rumminess or fruitiness. Nice full body and mouth coating. Good Australian imperial stout.

Pours near black with a thin golden brown foam ring that clings to the edge of the glass. Aroma of brown sugar, toffee, coffee and chocolate. Full bodied and rich. Lovely sweet taste coats your mouth with enough support from roasty bitternes and alcohol warmth, which leads into a satisfying finish.

stoutnick (829) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - AUG 12, 2014
Appearance - black with some tan head. Aroma is mild dark malt character. Taste is very smooth dark malt, mild soy, bitterness - great straight up imperial stout - subtle but full. Not big on the mouth but makes it very drinkable. Nice malt lingering. Overall, great Australian imperial stout.

Bittersweet dark chocolate. Dried fruit. Complex. Rich. Roasty. Mouthwarming finish with some boozy/rummy notes. Delicious. One of the best from Shaun at Murrays.

Great aroma. Got licorice, ash, burnt toast crust and dried raisins. Pours dark with light head and rouge on the edge at the glass. Ripper sweet mouthfeel with roasted edge. A really fruity tasty stout. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottled@PBF IX. Black colour, brown head. Aroma is liquorice, alcohol, some toffee and quite ok. Flavour is quite similar with some wood and syrupy notes. A bit vintage taste to it.
