(Prog) Mastodon have unveiled some details about their new "Black Tongue Brew" beer, which goes on sale on December 3 and is available for pre-order now.
The 8.3ABV beverage, named after a track on their fifth album The Hunter, is described as a balance of "rumbling smoky notes and misbehaving punchy hops." British craft beer makers Signature Brew explain: "The band wanted to create a 'palate crusher' – and that's certainly what's been delivered. It's a beer for enjoying slowly, letting the bombardment of flavour and intensity hit your tongue and explode with every sip."
It's the second time Mastodon have been involved in brewing – four years ago they release a limited-edition lager. Meanwhile, they're hard at work on the follow-up to The Hunter, with around 20 songs written, and drummer Brann Dailor has revealed they've hired producer Nick Raskulinecz to assist. more on this story
