A reasonable beer. I like the concept and the fact Murray’s is trying something new. The various flavours were nice, but a little confusing together. ALLOVATE (3002) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - MAY 22, 2012
Just on cool and into a snifter. Deepest, darkest brown, opaque with a quickly settling pad of yeasty goodness. Big, towering head of foam, holds up high for the length, daubing thick layers of froth in its wake. Deeply, resinous, sharp and piney, forestfloor hops meets salty caramel on the nose with nuances of tar, tobacco, scorched oak, cherry brandy and burnt, bitter raisins. Begins sweet, candyish and fruity in the mouth. A dry and drawing backend leads to a lovely balance of chunky malts and resinous, earthy hops. Very approachable stuff. Firm body, not too heavy, not too light, moderate carbonation and oily late. Wood, smoke and ash, burnt, bitter raisins and dark stone fruit like the nose, powdery cocoa too, lingers long between each sip. This sample is by no way fresh but the way the malt is not hidden, unlike other Black IPA’s, makes this a very quaffable ale. Another Murray’s gem!

I love this beer. The idea of putting an IPA and and a dark beer, my two favorites styles together was brilliant. A fantastic hop aroma and enriched by the great chocolate and dark malt profile. Easy to drink, which could end up to be dangerous, with the abv of 7.5%.

Bottle: Red brown beer with a light brown quickly diminishing head. Aroma is herbal hoppy and big malty with some chocolate and toffee notes. Taste is heavy sweett and bitter with notes of resin, herbs and spruce. Very bitter, dry finish. A different take on a black IPA. A tad too malty for me.
