MASTODON Launching (Another) Beer: Black Tongue Double Black IPA

There are so many bands with their own beer nowadays that we had to create a unique category just to house all the news, but to the best of my recollection, Mastodon were one of the first. The band released a lager as part of Sonisphere Festival promotions in the summer of 2009, which had a very limited run.

But the band is getting back in the beer game with the launch of their new double black IPA, Black Tongue. 

The beer will sport 8.3% alcohol by volume, which is awesome. It's a double black IPA produced by Signature Brew in the UK. Here's how they describe the beer:

Black Tongue is a Double Black IPA, brewed in collaboration with metal legends – Mastodon.

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, this is our biggest and most powerful creation to date. 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.

The beer will begin shipping on December 3rd, and a 6 pack goes for £22.49. You can pre-order here.

Here's a video teaser the beer makers released to wet your whistle:
