Murray's Cavemaster Reserve The Other Stephen
This item is currently out of stock. Please try one of our other delicious cheeses!
We love St. Stephen. These heavenly little discs are 75% butterfat, with a decadent flavor profile that hits on notes of fresh cream and butter-soaked mushrooms. But this particular St. Stephen is no Saint – this one comes bathed in Short, Dark & Handsome, an American stout from Other Half Brewing in Brooklyn. At 7.00% ABV, the beer wash brings some rowdiness to the cheese, imparting notes of roasted coffee beans, dark cocoa, hops and flowers, with a nice salty finish that might just get you a little rowdy yourself.
Just the Facts
The hands that wash the cheese may change, but the title remains the same - Cavemaster. Since the inception of the caves beneath Bleecker Street at Murray's, we've had an expert aboard whose sole purpose is to tend to the hundreds of cheeses lurking below the store. And every now and again, they'll create an entirely new cheese; either by washing, aging or coating, the result always impresses.
