Murray's Oak-Aged Heart of Darkness

Style
Belgio Imperial Stout
ABV
9.6%

To mark the brewery's 500th brew, Murray's decided to put a twist on one of their most twisted beers, the big, dark, clash of styles Belgian Imperial Stout. It has spent time in American oak barrels previously used for Shiraz. According to the brewery, it's added a "beautifully integrated oak character. The beer features classic light tannins and vanillin oak character, which accentuate the strong chocolate notes of Heart of Darkness." It's only available in very limited numbers from Murray's Brewery ' in person, online, or by calling (02) 4982 6411). Alternatively, you can sample it at the new Murray's At Manly. EDIT: Now available more widely in limited numbers. We sampled it side by side with the straight HoD and it doesn't just add the characters mentioned above, but smoothes out the original, making for a softer, warmer experience (and we don't mean alcohol warmth). Imagine enjoying a glass of top notch Port and a Havana cigar in the comfort of an all-enveloping old leather armchair by a roaring fire - but in beer form.
