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 80% stout, 20% 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.
Dark coffee with the slightest sheen, light brown foam with nice lacing and head retention
Bakers chocolate, slight sour notes- like coca-cola and hints of coffee grounds
Semi-sweet chocolate up front, acrid coffee note with a slightly sour cherry-cola finish
Mouth covering, warming woody dry notes that finishes crisp and surprisingly light/clean for such a bold beer
Dark Chocolate, Coffee, Black
Dark Wood Ale
Stout blended with 20% 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 20% blend brings a tartness and unique complexity to an otherwise basic strong stout.
