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.

On tap at the Rackhouse Pub. Dark black color, a little head. Smells very roasty, all stout in the smell. The flavor hit me at first with some sour but then it really blended in with the roasted malt stout-like flavor. This was interesting but I preferred Kick and would probably never order this again.

Tap at Banger’s in Austin. Thin black pour with medium head. Aroma is roasty, earth, some coffee. Not too intense. Flavor is roasty, with a bit of tartness that adds a decent touch.

On tap 1/2 pint at Gilly's Craft Beer & Fine Wine in Rockville, MD. Opaque deep brown with tan head and very good lacing. Aroma of dark cherries, light roasted malt and Gamay wine. Taste of slightly tart and slightly sweet roasted malt, Gamay, Zinfandel and pie cherries. Medium/full body with medium carbonation. Nice mouthfeel. Different, interesting and once you get used to it, far too easy too drink. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Dark brown pour with a light brown head. Some tart fruits in the nose and some roasty chocolate flavors. Sour flavor gets masked some, but it’s still enjoyable.

Bomber. Pours deep brown nearly black, with a small creamy light tan head. Aroma is lightly green apple tartness with plenty of roast and some chocolate and marshmallow sweetness. Flavor is more tart with the crispness coming through in the beginning though quickly overtaken by the cocoa and roast into a smooth creamy finish. Medium creamy body and a soft carbonation. Interesting beer.

Bottle. Pours like dark black, thin head, with good stickiness. The aroma is sweet and fruity. This drinks with a very mellow, mushy sourness, but this is pretty even-keeled. The sourness asserts itself primarily in the final bit. I find this pleasant enough, but don’t think this quite lives up to the hype. (#4727, 8/12/2012)

jgb9348 (5681) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - JUL 22, 2012
Super deep and dark brown coloured body, almost indigo or violet with a thin, oily tan head. Aroma of alcohol, malt, raisins, earth and a little bit of vinegar and acidic notes. Medium-bodied; Strong assertive bitter note of anise and permanent marker, mixed with earth and strong nuts, all with a pungent alcohol flavour, some oatmeal and a tiny amount of sour grape flavour. Aftertaste is deep, pungent, long-lasting and a strong stone fruit flavour coupled with the bitterness from anise and dark roasted malt. Overall, a pungent and interesting beer, that while being well-executed, is not such a good beer with some rather pungent flavours that don’t meld well together. I sampled this 65 cL bottle purchased from West LakeView Liqours in Chicago, Illinois on 03-December-2011 for US$10.49 sampled at home in Washington on 22-July-2012.
