A Note on This Beer
One taste of today’s sinfully-smooth Black Metal Farmhouse Imperial Stout, and you’ll completely understand why fans say it’s “in a league of its own.”
But, if you’re sitting there wondering, “what the hell is a Farmhouse Imperial Stout anyway?” it's because this is the only one that exists.
It’s a unique, boundary-breaking style that the Wild Ale legends at Austin’s Jester King invented in 2011!
And it’s basically a Russian Imperial Stout that they ferment with farmhouse yeast. The result is a jet-black pour that is equal parts bold, funky, bitter, and of course, boozy as hell at 10.4% ABV.
Enticing aromas of toasty malts and burnt molasses greet the nose. Bittersweet baker’s chocolate and heavy notes of tobacco mingle with vinous cherry undertones on the palate from Jester King’s famed open fermentation process and wild yeast cultures. Espresso roastiness and a blast of char lead the way to a bone-dry finish, prepping your mouth for another luxurious sip.
Seasonally released with a different recipe for each batch, Black Metal is your one-way ticket to a tastebud-tantalizing adventure like no other. Seriously, even the most metal of your Dark Beer lovin’ buds have probably never tasted anything quite as nuanced and complex as this one-of-a-kind brew!
It’s not often that you get to taste a beer as unforgettable as this, and especially from the folks that are responsible for introducing the Farmhouse style to the U.S.
So go ahead, let loose a head-bang or two for scoring these prized bottles. You deserve it.
Last year’s variant was rated 90/100 on BeerAdvocate.
