Metal band Mastodon have helped to make their very own craft ale.
The 8.3% ABV beer can be pre-ordered now for dispatch on December 3, reports Consequence of Sound. According to the Signature Brew website, the ale is the company’s “most powerful creation to date”. Describing the beverage, they say: “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.”

Mastodon, who performed at this summer’s Download festival, worked on a song which featured in the Monsters Inc sequel, Monsters University, which also came out this summer.
