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!""""

a magnificent imperial stout in every way, from luscious thick body to creamy dark brown head, deep burnt bitterness and a very classy marsala-tiramisu sort of liqueuryness in aroma and finish. my only caveat is the contribution of the wild yeast - i was hoping for more complex esters and some sourness too but got mainly a faint vegetably note (the way some lambics do) ok perhaps some cherry.

The tasting notes are spot on. 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

Complex beer whilst being balanced. Hides the alcohol content well. Matches well with bbq red or smoked meats or chocolate

stevoj (2875) - Boise, Idaho, USA - APR 11, 2015
330ml bottle from Bitter Phew, 2012 vintage. Beautiful from the start. Aroma wafts up and provides signs of great things to come. Black slippery body with oil skin beige head. Taste is equal parts roast grain and woody flavors. High ABV is masked by all of the other sumptuous characters.

Very smooth, great balance. Dark and wild. Roasted coffee and bitter without being offensive. Lovely.

Opaque black - brown beer, good tan head. Palate is airy and mildly dry. Mild fine carbonation. Nice dark malts, light in feel but rich in taste. Little dark malt cream and smooth mild dark chocolate. Finishes smooth and pretty dry with the malts turning slightly bitter. Interesting and tasty.

Leighton (13985) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 11, 2014
Bottle shared in London - thanks to Paul. Pours rich black-brown with a foamy tan head. The aroma holds mild char, dark fruits, some toast. Medium to big sweet flavor, some burnt caramel, earth, burnt wood, dried dark fruits. Full bodied with fine to average carbonation. Rich chocolate on the finish, moderate roast, dark fruits. Solid.
