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.

Big bottle from Wegmans. Sour yeast, malt, oak, citrus, coffee aroma. Really smooth medium feel body, medium bite, sweet-sour finish. Mild woody aftertaste but it’s a very acidic citrus sourness that dominates. Fluctuates big time from dark roasted malt to puckering sweet in a flash. Crazy stuff.

2015 BJCP Category: 28C Wild Specialty Beer (base style: 20C Imperial Stout)


AROMA: Strong sour grape scent along with chocolate, dark malt, slight citrus. Sweet nose overall. No alcohol presence. 8/12

APPEARANCE: Dark black, nearly opaque. Large tan froth, retains and laces well. 3/3

FLAVOR: Strong malt base with notes of roasted malt, chocolate and coffee. Moderately sweet palette enhanced by the sourness on finish which imparts slight fruity flavor (almost candy-like). Bitterness is low, though sour character makes up for it. Fruit punch-like flavors on the finish. Though mostly to spec, taste is surprisingly mild overall. Sourness is a little too tame. Imperial stout base is not all that imperial. 13/20

MOUTHFEEL: Medium body; medium-low carbonation. Feels a little flat and watery for an 8.5% ABV brew. No alcohol warmth. Sourness is not puckering. No astringency. 3/5

OVERALL IMPRESSION: If ever there were a pedestrian wood-aged imperial sour stout - this is it. Not bad, just far from great. 6/10

TOTAL SCORE: 34/50
