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.

Bomber. Roasted malt aroma with notes of dark chocolate, coffee and tart cherry. Pours dark brown with a large light brown head that has excellent retention and lacing. Starts with roasted malt and coffee flavors to go with a medium body and creamy mouthfeel. Finishes smooth and tart with tart cherry and chocolate coating the palate nicely. Quite good.

Black pour with a thin espresso head. Aroma of oak and some cherries. Medium bodied. Taste has some chocolate notes with hints of cherries as well. Finish is nice, not sour, not sweet, like a chocolate covered tart cherry. No lace present.

Tap at muddy waters with samadueche. Cola brown black with small white head. Tart nose. Taste is tart and sour, more so than any semblance of stout. Interesting, but big sour, little stout.

Clear black body with some rapidly dissipating tan head. Nose is initially sour but I smell lots of raisin, fig, and chocolate. Taste is unique. It first comes at you with some sour berries but soon the roasted malt appears. A sour chocolate lingers. Every so often I notice coffee. Lightly bodied add lightly carbonated. This is a fun blend of styles that works better than I thought it would. Id drink another.

Grunt fill from Winco.. Not normally a big sour fan, but was intrigued by the Belgian slant on this. It lives up to the description , resembling a sour quad or dubbel.Dark brown / black body, small skin of bubbly beige head. Aroma features the chocolate first, some plums or figs in the background. Taste is more chocolate, pit fruit, brown sugar, with a sourness that seems odd at first, but fits right into the mix. This beer hits it at many levels.

UPDATED: JAN 17, 2017 On tap at Downtown Drafts in Gainesville GA. Clear but opaque and essentially black body with a rather weak head, ruby highlights at the edge, and a modicum of lacing. Sweet and sour aroma with hints of ripe soft fruits and chocolate. Moderately sour flavor that is also mildly bitter. Some dark fruit notes with chocolate, but the tartness is more obvious. Overall: excellent for style (allowing for a sour stout style).

22 ounce bottle best by date of May 6, 2018. Served in a Great Lakes Brewing snifter, the beer pours dark brown/black wtih about an inch tan head. Head retention and lacing are both good. I like the aroma, the brew smells like roasted malt, chocolate, dark fruit/berries, coffee and some earthiness. Taste is similar to the aroma, but with the addition of tart berries, wood and a bit of green apple flavors. Not a big amount of sourness, but enough to know that its a sour/tart ale. Mouthfeel/body is medium, its creamy and coating with a decent amount of carbonation. I thought this was a good sour stout, I enjoyed it. Certainly worth trying, I wouldnt mind having it again sometime! $16.99 a bottle.

Bottle. It poured a black color with a tan head. The aroma was of malts, coffee and smoke. The taste was similar to the aroma with more malts, coffee, sugar, smoke and wood. It was slightly tart and a little sweet. Different than what I expected.

Best before May 6th 2018. Black liquid, 1 finger head of tan foam, good retention and nice lacing. A bit sour to the smell initially, I get roasted malt and chocolate beneath. Holding the glass a bit further away, yeah, I smell some coffee notes. Tastes of tart chocolate with a side order of roasted malt. Every once in a while I can taste some coffee but its fleeting. Medium body and carbonation. I cant shake the feeling that it reminds me of other Brewerys mistakes. It IS drinkable though.
