In a blind tasting by BJCP trained experts, this beer rated


Jester King Brewery Black Metal

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.”
