On tap at 2011 HAF, referred to as a 'sour stout' in program notes.
Broken layer of brown head resulted in ring of foam around edge of 'glass', medium brown body with no visible effervescence. Funky nose, cocoa nibs, pretty chocolatey, not very sour aroma-wise. Taste mirrors nose, and once again not that sour, more on the tart side. Pretty dry mouthfeel from the Brett, good effervescence. A real interesting beer, though a bit boozy and certainly not as complex or balanced as the phenomenal Bruery Tart of Darkness, a bit more chocolate in this, but still quite tasty.
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.
