Murray’s 2019 Dark Beer Month Line-up
Headlining this year is Murray’s ‘Wild Thing’ Imperial Stout a massive, intense drinking experience. The flavour is an intense hit of mocha, with malt sweetness and an aggressive hop bitterness and roast grain bite to balance. Released Saturday 8 June, can and draught.
Murray’s Coco Hops Nitro is exactly as it sounds, the same great brown coconut porter that everyone loves but with a nitro twist giving it the creamy texture that people would be familiar with in beers such as Guinness and Kilkenny. Released Saturday 1 June, draught.
Murray’s Cherry Porter aroma is strong and intense, with some earthiness, strong fruit flavours such as sweet cherries, bitter chocolate and dark bread. Released Saturday 1 June, draught.
Murray’s Raspberry Sour is a very light coffee and chocolate malt aroma hidden beneath the raspberry. Pours like a cherry cola sparkling with a reddish, black colour. Immediate sourness is quickly balanced by the sweetness from the raspberries. Released Saturday 8 June, draught.
Murray’s Belgian Dubbel’ a Hazy mahogany with golden brown highlights, along with a creamy tan head and residual lacing, Aromas of raisins, prunes, brown sugar, caramel, figs, dates, brown bread, earthy wood and vanilla. Medium to full bodied, soft on the palette. Released Saturday 15 June, draught.
Murray’s Dark Belgian Strong with complex aromas of bubble gum, banana and cloves from the yeasts, raisins and stone fruit from the malts, it is a perfect winter warmer. Sweet mouth filling malt up front with a remarkably dry finish for a beer of this size. Released Saturday 22 June, draught.
Murray’s Black IPA is intensely hoppy with citrus, pine and roasted caramel malts. A flavour of citrus hops, loads of wood, spruce and pine needles, with lightly roasted malts and earthy notes and medium-to-high bitterness on the finish. Released Saturday 29 June, draught.
