New Belgium & The Band Clutch Collaborate On Clutch Wood-Aged Imperial Sour Stout

image
From New Belgium:

It started as chance, a sandwich shop encounter between a band and a fan. It ended as the Clutch Collaboration. 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 70% stout, 30% 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.

The two flavors come as raucous and riotous as the Maryland band and their Fort Collins fans, getting loud and making beer, together.

SPECIAL PROCESSING

Stout blended with 30% sour Oscar. Oscar is the name of the dark base beer that we put in barrels, acidify for years then blend to make La Folie. The 30% blend brings a tartness and unique complexity to an otherwise basic strong stout.
