BEER INFO

Brewed by:
New Belgium Brewing
Colorado, United States
newbelgium.com

Style: American Wild Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 9.50%

Availability: Rotating

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 dense dark brown that looks about the same color as it did in the (brown) bottle. I am surprised and strangely excited by how dark the mocha brown head is. The aroma has some light grains and a bit of lactose-like sweetness. It's not bad, but it is just not much. The flavor is similarly unexciting, although it has a rather complex combination of mild apple tartness up front, some moderately roasted malts in the finish, and faint hints of chocolate and wood that creep in as the beer opens up. The texture is fairly light and smooth, which allows a light lingering woodiness to develop. Despite this beer's subtle complexity, however, it just doesn't provide much payoff, particularly for its high ABV.
