""""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!""""

Pleasant savory aroma, Rich but not cloyingly sweet like many Imp stouts. Little soy sauce flavor.

[bottle] shared by skyview. Pours clear, almost black, with a really dark head. One of the darkest heads I’ve seen. Aroma is roasted malts, a touch of soy sauce, powdery chocolate, artificial vanilla. The flavor is really rich and full, chocolate, roasted malts, chalky, and earthy flavors.

Thanks Skyview for this taste. Holy soy sauce batman! A little chocolate in the aroma. The body is a dark dark brown. The body is a bit more complex. Still has some soy characteristics, but there a little nuttiness and the dark chocolate.

black body with a medium tan head, good cap and retention, ok lace... milk chocolate and cocoa nibs, a touch of chemical alcohol on the finish, but very solid... wow, I finally found a really good Australian beer, tastes exactly like an imperial stout should, cocoa nibs, bakers chocolate, and little roasted character, very complex and tastey, however, its a bit overcarbonated and the chemical finish from the nose presents again... gladly drink again

UPDATED: OCT 2, 2012 Bottle from Mane Liquor. Love at first sight. Almost gluggs out. Pours jet black with no light coming through. Has a small tan head which eventually becomes a small ring of heavy tan around the edges. Aroma is huge. Very dark chocolate, vanilla, some sweet roasted malts. Notes of bourbon and oak. Taste is superb. Big, dark chocolate mixed with espresso-like coffee, sweet vanilla-like malts, wood, and some hopppy bitterness to finish it off. Woody bourbon tones linger throughout the entire brew. Loved it so much I put a few bottles in my cellar and plan to keep them there for a few years at least... if I can resist them that is. Re-rate as the newest vintages haven’t been as good as the first few. Will try some aged ones soon

Bottle 33 cl. Courtesy of bluebetty. Pours pitch black with a light brown head. Hard roast malt aroma almost tarry. Very solid body, pours almost thick and syrupy, tarry and lightly roasty with a ton of hard roast malt. Some malt bitterness. This is heavy duty shit, a real impressive "classic" and untreated Imperial Stout. 150311
