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.

Poured into a pint glass
A: Moderate pour yields 3/4 finger tan head with fair retention. Near opaque dark brown/black.
S: Subdued, slight cherry, milk stout, coffee, slight Belgian twang. Too subdued, more aroma would be nice.
T: Coffee, roasty malt, sour twinge, cherry. One of the best tasting sour/cherry stouts I've had. Similar to Short's Black cherry Porter. Full flavored and complimentary dark chocolate and tart lemon juice. I like this!
M: Dry, chewy, tart.
O: Glad to drink a bomber solo. Very tasty. I would buy this again. It doesn't blow me away, but if I didn't have Black Cherry Porter around, my cravings would be satisfied by this.

Pours black, dark brown head cascades well on the glass and hangs around for a while before dissipating. Taste starts as a pungent sour, then quickly moves to a stout, dark roasty malts dominate the flavor, but the sour comes back at the end as an accent to the flavor. Sour tickles the sides of the mouth. Wish the sour was a bit more pronounced and the stout a bit less. Like a stout plus more, a great flavor combination. Tasted again after 6 months of again, and the sour was more pronounced. Wish I had another one or two to age longer!

Poured from tap into flute style glass at alewife, baltimore. Pours a pitch black color with a finger of dark tan head. Smells of very roasted dark malts. Taste is very roasted; malts, coffee, slight vanilla and somewhat fruity/cherry notes. Really nice. Easy to drink but complex. Not sure why this didn't get better reviews. Its a great brew with lots of personality. Worth a try for sure.
