COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Black Metal Imperial Stout, a.k.a. Suds of Northern Darkness, a.k.a. Iron Sword, a.k.a. El Martillo del Muerte. Black Metal is a cruel and punishing beer fermented by the sheer force of its awesome will. We are pretty sure that Kreator wrote the song “Impossible Brutality” about this beer while drinking it during their Extreme Aggression Tour.

Note: This entry is the original Black Metal. Beginning around the time of their first anniversary, Jester King switched to a farmhouse yeast for all of their beers. All ratings after this switch should be entered under the Farmhouse Black Metal Imperial Stout entry. The original Black Metal bottles feature a small sticker on the neck; the Farmhouse Black Metal bottles have the word "Farmhouse" in small print on the label.

fonefan (50751) - VestJylland, DENMARK - SEP 29, 2011

Bottle 750ml.

Clear dark black colour with a large, frothy - creamy, good lacing, fully lasting, light brown head. Aroma is moderate to heavy malty, roasted, burnt, smoke, iodine, light to moderate yeasty. Flavour is moderate to heavy sweet and bitter with a long duration, yeasty, phenol notes. IMO a bit Belgium Imp.Stout alike ! Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft. [20110918]

Bottled. More or less pitch black colour with a beigeish brown head. Aroma is chocolate, roasted malts, ashes, some ripe dark fruits as well as mild liquorice. Flavour is very dark chocolate, some coffee, mild nuttiness as well as some ashes, ripe fruits, alcohol and some hints of liquorice. Smooth to drink and although big, not all too thick.

omhper (25568) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - MAR 20, 2012
Bottled at Linköping Beer Expo. Near black, brief head. Aroma of green apples and licorice. Really sweet, full bodied with rounded mouthfeel. Thick and viscous, heavy on caramel and syrup. White pepper finish. The only thing brutal here is the sweetness.

Opaque black beer. Massive dark tan head, persistent. Palate is semi dry and pretty well carbonated, perhaps overly so. Dark chocolate with sour wet wood. Whisper of emulsion paint. Pinch of spice. Dry finish with more dark chocolate. Not bad but I like by Impys a little sweeter.
