COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Pure rock fury meets Belgian-style brewed folly in this collaboration with Maryland hard-rockers, Clutch. A pronounced bass line of dark chocolate, coffee and black malts bridge the sourness of our dark wood ale for a fluid riff.

Tons of tart cherry and chocolate flavor. Finishes roasty. Nice way better than the last beer

Draft at churchills with Linh. Pours a deep brown, nearly black body with of white lacing. Aroma is light roast and muted sour fruit. Mouthfeel is smooth and creamy with similar notes, somewhat watery and bland.

Tap at 3rd Annual Boulder SourFest (06-02-2012). Poured a dark, opaque brown, almost black, with a small khaki head. Smell is sweet dark fruits, sour cherry, light cocoa, char, and light marshmallow. Taste is char, cocoa, dark fruits, light cherry, and smoke with a lightly tart finish. Mouthfeel is creamy with soft carbonation. A lot going on, but I canít quite figure out if it works or not, but still kind of tasty. Interesting beer to drink.

S: black, dark tan head, solid collar, strong lacing A: tangy, coffee, mild, a little roasty is masked by the sour T: different, not complex, but well balanced, hints of the stout mixed with lighter sour notes, not heavy, but a little rich, medium finish O: a cool beer, unique, worth having & worth having again! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

From the bottle poured a very dark brew with thick, dark, rich head. Aromas of malt and lightly sour fruit. Medium/heavy bodied with flavors of malt and sour cherries. This is the first sour brew that Iíve found that I like.

Bottle. I feel like it should get extra points for showing up after searching "lips clutch." Very dark with creamy tan head and decent lacing. Nice sour cherry smell with a roasty sweet accompaniment. Roasty flavor, then a little sweet, then a light sour note. Sweet and sour finish, medium bodied, moderate carbonation.

SpringsLicker (3046) - Tennessee, USA - MAY 20, 2012
Dark brown pour with a tall, off-white head that laces nicely. Aroma is a mix of sourness, smoke, fruit, dark malts. The flavor is unique. Sort of a mix of a Munich Dunkel and a Flemish sour. If you donít like a lot of sourness in your Flemish Brown Ales, and Lambics are out of the question for your palate, then you might try this one; just slightly sour.

The darkest a brown can be without being black. Nice head that never leaves. Good sourness in the aroma and taste. Stop trying to rate it based on a category. Its a blended combination of styles. Enjoy it for what it is...not what you want it to be. Very good brew. Nice job Neil.

jcartamdg (1672) - Spring Hill, Florida, USA - MAY 17, 2012
Pours a pitch black color with a two finger head with crazy lacing into my bruery tulip. Aroma of smoky malts and coffee with a hint of infection. Taste follows the nose, slightly tart and very sugary. Smoked malts are there but the sweetness overpowers. This is not an easy beer to drink, itís under attenuated and not a great beer, Iím glad I tried this but I will never seek out this beer again.

Bottle. Tart smell with fruits, roast, malts, acid, and slight barf. The look is brownish colored, darkish, with a tan head. The taste is tart, fruits, roast, and malts.
