COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
""""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!""""

buzz_and_hum (153) - Wellington, - JAN 10, 2013
Pours pitch black with HUGE amounts of brown head; too much head really. Rich chocolate ice cream aroma. Body is very light for the weight of bitter rum’n’raisin that follows. I guess you could call the body "silky" but the amount of head and lightness of the body means that despite the darkness of the flavours and colours it doesn’t *feel* like a stout, let alone an imperial one. It’s good, but not quite there. But, mmm, in the meantime the very rich chocolatey, creamy aftertaste is very drinkable. A winner on everything but palate.

stoutnick (500) - 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.

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
