MASTODON, which released a limited-run lager in 2009, is once again retuning to one of their favorite pastimes: The enjoyment of quality handcrafted beer. Fortuitous that British craft beer makers Signature Brew along with the members of Mastodon have teamed up to create Black Tongue Brew, an 8.3% ABV Double Black IPA.The beer is made in the U.K. and can be shipped to customers in the U.S., Canada, and other territories beginning December 3rd. Mastodon fans and custom beer appreciators can now enjoy this feisty and festive dark beverage everywhere in the world. Pre-order it here.
Signature Brew has described Black Tongue thusly: “Rumbling smoky notes are offset by the elixir of misbehaving punchy hops. Mosaic and Magnum hops to the front, with Carafa Special 3 Malt and Pale on the baseline. The band wanted to create a ‘pallet crusher’ and that’s certainly what has been delivered. A beer for enjoying slowly, letting the bombardment of flavour and intensity hit your tongue and explode with every sip.”
In addition to collaborating on the perfect brew, Mastodon has been in the studio working on their sixth album, which will be released by Warner Bros. Records next year. As previously announced, December 10th, is the release date for Live At Brixton – digital-only video and audio versions of their sold-out show at London’s O2 Academy that capped off the Atlanta-based band’s world tour in support of their critically acclaimed album The Hunter.
