This beer is a sour stout that is composed of 80% New Belgium base beer and 20 % Sour beer. It has 15 IBUs.
The beer appears midnight black with a brown colored head.
It smells strongly of roasted smoky malts, dark chocolate and tart cherries.
It tastes initially of a smooth chocolate like stout. Soon however a tart cherry flavor takes over. There are hints of dark chocolate, coffee, and tart cherries to this beer. For how high it is in alcohol it is very smooth, light and refreshing. This could be a dangerous beer.
The beer has a thin mouthfeel with moderate low carbonation.
Overall a really good a unique sour stout. One of the best beers I have tried from NB. I am really impressed by how easy the beer is to drink.
Serving type: on-tap

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.
