COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
English Imperial Stout meets the Franco-Belgian Farmhouse tradition in this dry, drinkable beer; Pitch black in color with notes of chocolate, roasted and black malts coupled with earthy, peppery and floral farmhouse esters.

Note: This Farmhouse version replaced the original Black Metal Imperial Stout when Jester King switched to a farmhouse yeast for all beers. The original bottles feature a small Jester King sticker on the neck; newer bottles do not have this sticker and say "Farmhouse" in small print on the label.

yngwie (13820) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 18, 2012
Bottle, 75cl, at TFODRBSG 2012. A big, tan head forms over a black, body. Lacings. Roasted, slightly yeasty and spiced aroma with some pine cones and grassy hints. Soft on the palate, lightly roasted, quite chocolatey and coffee-ish flavor, maybe a bit too heavy on carbonation. A touch of licorice and some roasted black peppercorn too. Lasting roasted finish. Certainly a nice one, but still... Maybe it’s lacking a bit on complexity or punch, it might be the yeast used, not really sure. 120818
