Notes/Commercial Description:
This pleasing, two-part, potion was brewed with chocolate and black malts for a rich and roasty overtone, then fused with a dry, substratum of sour for a bold and audacious flavor. Black as night, this beer is blended at 80% stout, 20% dark sour wood beer for a collaboration that begins with a sour edge and finishes with a big, dark malt character, lingering, sweet on your palate.

Pours, a dark brown. Produced a long lasting, 2 finger, beige head.
The smell is of dark chocolate, coffee, and stout like.
The taste is similar, but with a slight sour note on the end.
The consistency is that of a creamy stout. It has low carbonation, and a slightly heavy mouth-feel.
This is good. I was hesitant of trying it. It is a sipper.

Bottle broached on 24th Feb 2014: shared at the second ever 'Shrewsbury Bottle Share', four of us tucked into this: cheers Mat for bringing it (he's a Clutch fan). I've never heard of Clutch of course, apart from the ones in the various cars I've owned.

Anyway the beauty poured a dark, dark brown, almost black in fact.

Dark fruits wrapped in chocolate with a sourness that belies the sweetness that is trying to burst through the brew. A dusting of caster sugar towards the end gives the beer a slightly less sour finish and adds a little lightness to the whole thing.

Different and pleasing, my third beer from New Belgium, they are doing OK in my eyes.
