Heart of Darkness

There is beer for every mood, every person at every point in their life (at a reasonable drinking age) Arche Enemy- Heart of Darkness popped on my itunes today

Arche Enemy is one my favorite bands for being female powered and long lasting with depth and musical talent.

14_Heart_Darkness_DecalThe title of the song reminded me of beer I had in Brisbane, QLD at the Archive Bar that touched my heart. Heart of Darkness by Murray's Brewing co. Likely on of my favorite stouts to date, Heart of Darkness was all chocolate and bitterness- like my heart. Melts in your mouth, not in your hands, likely to hop bomb and intoxicate.

MURRAY'S Heart of Darkness 9.6% “Belgio” Imperial stout

A: Dark with red highlights

S: Chocolate and yeasty

T: Bread like a Belgian yeast, malty and chocolate but not too coffee or roasted. Lingering chocolate

M: Lightly creamy with a perfect amount of carbonation to cut the heavy ingredients.

O: Pours in bitter and hoppy then finishes chocolate. In love! Strong and loving. Sip-able, gulp-able, hearty and soft. It bursts with flavor but doesn’t give you a caffeine headache. Pours with a syrup consistency. Fizzes like a redhead in heat.


What I found as I searched for my dark hearted beer, was that Magic Hat also has a Heart of Darkness beer- Uh oh... please don't sue anyone Magic Hat!
