Brewed to mark our 500th batch of beer, Murray's Heart of Darkness Oak AgedÊ'Belgio' Imperial Stout is a mix of styles and according to Head Brewer, Shawn Sherlock, "one of a kind". An Imperial Stout in basic style but with a stronger accent on the chocolate malt over the roast barley, some rummy, portiness from the dark brown sugar, and underpinning it all, some classic Belgian esters and very light phenolics from the yeast. Extra depth of flavour comes from ageing in Shiraz oak casks. The beer pours very dark brown/black in colour with dark ruby highlights when held up to the light.
This is a big, beautiful beer. A big, dark, beautiful beer. A big, dark Belgian-inspired beautiful beer. At 9.6% abv its a beer made for sipping. Perfect for the darkest of winter nights.
