Jester King Brewery Black Metal

What the brewers say

“Pitch black with huge notes of chocolate, roast, coffee, burnt malt, and alcohol balanced by aggressive hops bitterness.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Roast malt and dark chocolate earthy background notes provide complexity. Some spicy hops presence. Nice fruity esters with hints of fig and raisin.”

Flavor: “Rich and smooth with lots of chocolate and roast barley and a bit of welcome coffee roast. Hops bitterness is assertive but not overwhelming. Alcohol is readily apparent.”

Overall: “Earthy complexity nicely accentuates this big stout. The base stout is well crafted with earthy notes that dart about, tantalizing you to follow. This is a farmhouse meal in a glass. Pair with something hearty and salty.”
