One-off brew, Heart of Darkness base fermented with brettanomyces, released exclusively for Murray's Belgian Feast in March 2012. Tried and reviewed on the night.
Very dark brown, almost black. Head is OK but settles out to little else. Lace is not really there. Looks big; quite intimidating really.
Smells a bit crazy; organic and a bit wild. Big sour character, with a strong vegemitey note. Big yeast, slightly spicy. Rich and sludgey, but very pleasant.
Mostly imperial stout characters on the palate. Black, roasty and very spicy. Big strong vegemite yeasty notes with black pepper. Slight acidity upfront, and more late on the palate. Spicy more than roasty on the finish. Quite intense but very palatable.
Drying on the back but full, quite nice but a bit of pull from the Brett.
Nice interesting beer. I have such respect for brewers doing this sort of crazy thing, and when it's Mr Sherlock at the helm you're in safe hands. Other one-offs I've tried have had mixed results, but this particular incarnation has come off in really interesting ways. Great drop.
Serving type: on-tap
