22oz bottle served into a tulip.
A: Right on for an American Stout. Black with just a bit of dark brown shining through on the edges when held to the light. Light brown foam develops which settles to a ring of head at the top of the beer. As I make subsequent pours, there is a mixture of brown and light tan head. Very nice looking.
S: Strong roast scents with slight green apple smell. Some dark chocolate as well.
T: Strong roast flavors with some dark chocolate and light coffee. There is really very little sour flavor in this beer - again I get very slight green apple. Very little alcohol flavor despite the 9.5% ABV.
M: Medium body with medium amount of carbonation. Quite good.
O: I don't really taste much sourness in this beer. As an American Stout, it's decent.

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.
