A capped 750 mL bottle won in turfy's "A Taste of Texas LIF!" Thanks a ton! Split into four tasting snifters and shared with friends; review is from notes taken on 09/30/2011.

A black body with minimal dark brown head. The body is opaque save for the surface and edges of the glass. Smells of chocolate, cocoa, caramel, a decent amount of alcohol, molasses, roasted malt, and sugar. Tastes of thick molasses, syrupy caramel, chocolate, brown sugar, and alcohol. Mouthfeel is thick, syrupy, rich, and finishes rather dry. Overall, a flavorful but dry, boozy, and sticky stout.

10.4% ABV. 750ml bottle

Appearance: Pours like the blackest crude oil you can imagine. Small head with little retention.

Smell: Strong notes of coffee, chocolate, roasty malts, and somewhat of a floral bouquet.

Taste: Dark fruits, similar tastes of roasted coffee, dark chocolate, hop bitterness is present and makes itself known to balance out the sweetness of this beer.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied, but surprisingly light. A pleasant, easy carbonation matches the body as I'm sure over-carbonation would absolutely kill this delicate beer.

Overall: Reading the ingredients list provides some insight as to why the body is so thin. Dextrose is listed on there. Dextrose boosts the alcohol content since it completely ferments out, but leaves a thinner mouthfeel. Even with the light body, this beer certainly has it's place as a great pairing beer to a heavy dessert.

On tap - well actually out of a pitcher - at the brewery's grand opening celebration.

The beer pours a black color with a dark brown head. This is a great looking beer.

The aroma is heavy on the roasted malt with some chocolate mxied in. Not too complex, but everything mixes well together.

The flavor is more of the same. The chocolate really stands out and the roasted malt compliments it very well. A nice, chocolate-forward imperial stout. The alcohol is well hidden and the beer is very - dangerously - easy to drink.

The mouthfeel is on the thinnish side of medium and is really my only complaint. I wish it was thicker and more viscous. Medium carbonation.

A very nice imperial stout.

Thanks to davacano for this one! I’ve been saving this for a special occasion, but occasions seem to be few and far between. So, I’m celebrating the impending arrival of some more Jester King!

750ml bottle poured into a Jester King Grand Opening snifter. Looks like there are remnants of a bottle date at the top of the bottle but I can’t make it out. I received this bottle in 5/11.

A: About as good as a stout can look. Jet black body with a dark brown one-finger head. After some decent retention it reduces to a small cap in the center with a ring around the edge. Some spotted lacing.

S: Very aromatic. Chocolate and coffee. Faint hops and licorice. A good dose of roasted dark malt.

T: Beautiful roasted malt is featured and interplays with the chocolate and coffee from the nose. Very nicely balanced..no one flavor dominates. Finishes very smooth and dry with slight warming but overall alcohol is very well hidden.

M: Heavy body and medium-low carbonation. Kinda chewy. The balance, mostly-hidden alcohol and smooth finish make this very drinkable for such a full-flavored beer.

O: I loved this. I’m assuming that this was more hop-forward when fresh, but I’m glad that I let this rest for awhile even though it was difficult to do so. It reminded me of some other classic English style stouts I’ve had.

Bottle (2011)

Urge Gastropub
San Diego, CA

Black throughout with a moderately sized dark brown head that eventually leaves the glass oily and spotted with lace.

Simple, straightforward, though appropriate aroma of roast, chocolate, and dark, black malt.

The flavor is similarly straightforward, though tasty. There's lots of roast and mild chocolate.

Medium to full bodied with moderate carbonation.

Good, straightforward imperial stout, though I think the farmhouse version is slightly better.

Huge Black Metal fan drinking a beer called black metal...does it get any better?

A: black as death with an awesome milk chocolate head.

S: smells like dark chocolate. tons of roasted malt smell and some hops.

T: Huge. massive chocolate and coffee notes. licorice. Some cookie notes.

M: creamy with a nice hop bite.

D: this is a great beer that I am so glad to have tried!

Another beer review written after the first one mysteriously disappeared. Pours black, brown head. Aroma was of heavily roasted malts, a little bit of chocolate malt.

Taste, same thing, a hefty dose of thick roasted malt, a smidge of smoke. Bitterness and hopping seems strong. Ample carbonation. Kind of an English yeast presence. Chewy and the alcohol doesn't seem all that high on the tongue, so its relatively drinkable. Pretty straightforward big stout: big malt, some chocolate, minimal coffee, high bitterness, good alcohol absorption.

Thanks to exiled for this evil looking guy.

Pours a thick black with a mildly fluffy mocha tan head that fades quickly to some lacing.

Smells like roasted malt, chocolate, pine trees and liquorice.

Tastes are tons of chocolate, coffee, light vanilla, more roasted malt and just a slight alcohol bite.

Mouthfeel is medium and creamy.

Overall is really good. I would most certainly drink this again.

Bottle shared by Grant – much obliged!

Pours black with a one-finger tan head. The head recedes into a wispy layer on top leaving decent lacing.

Smells of robust roasted malts with good amounts of dark chocolate aromas. Also present are slight amounts of smoke and lighter hints of tobacco.

Tastes similar to how it smells but slightly richer. Smooth roasted malt flavors kick things off and are joined quickly solid amounts of dark chocolate. Midway through the sip the flavor profile dries up a bit with hints of smoke. Near the end of the sip the smoke fades a bit, allowing slight earthy hops and tobacco flavors to carry through to a moderately bitter ending.

Mouthfeel is good. It’s got a nice thickness with smooth carbonation.

Drinkability is very good. I finished my glass quickly and could easily have a few more.

Overall this is one of the better pure American Double Stouts I’ve had in a while. All the flavors are well integrated and it goes down smoothly. Worth a shot.

Drinking a Black Metal from Dec 2010. Due to some unfortunate events with a broken box, this came back to me, and I was afraid the cap had leaked because it was missing about 2 inches of beer from what I normally see in these bottles, and the cap was dented. Here we go- gotta see if it is oxidized and messed up.

Popped the cap, still lets out a hiss, whew. Still smells like dark chocolate and dark fruits coming off the bottle. Looks like this one is still intact. I'm sad to have not waited longer, but this is one of my favorite beers so I'm glad to open it regardless. Poured from bottle into my Brooklyn tulip glass. Pours a pitch black nice thick texture. Tan head comes up off the pitch black liquid, but it dies away pretty quickly. Smell- espresso, dark chocolate, but there is something uniquely English about the yeast- almost reminds me of a mild- it is nice and subdued. Taste- dark chocolate sweetness, espresso bitterness in the back of the throat (the big hops presence probably contributes to this), but overall very smooth- there is some dark fruit presence- maybe figs, raisons. A lot going on here.

Overall, there is pretty much no alcohol presence here at all. So smooth, decadent. I will be buying many more of these to age as soon as JK makes more.

Review from notes.

A: Pours a dark black, very oily looking, with a small mocha colored head on top. Decent retention and spotty lacing.

S: A little bit of chocolate and roast. Had a lot of sweet oat aroma almost, even though its a RIS.

T: Surprising amount of licorice and brown sugar. A little bit of coffee and chocolate, and again more oatmeal.

M: Medium bodied with medium carbonation, extremely smooth with no sign of the abv at all.

O: A good RIS, but a little bit of a letdown. The oat presence was a bit confusing, but not bad, just unexpected.

Thanks to Exiled for this bad boy!

A rather excellent looking beer. Total Fu**ing Svart! Oily jet black liquid and a toasty brown head that doesn't last long, but looks good trying. Dissipates to a crown made of remarkably large bubbles.

A huge blast of juicy dark fruits (plum, raisin, fig), vanilla, alcohol, coffee and chocolate. Pretty much all the traits you'll find in this style, and none of it out of whack or cloying.

First taste impression is a mixture of grape, chocolate and light smoke. The vinous quality continues and lords over all the rest, the rest being plum and raisin, watery chocolate milk, and a hint of lightly roasted coffee bean. Alcohol is present but never penetrates too deeply into the main flavors. A fruit sweetness is surprising, but seems to work. The semi-dry finish hosts tart fruit and lingering dark chocolate/coffee bitterness (although not an acrid or strong bitterness), all adding some depth.

The biggest surprise here is the lighter body...hardly any carbonation! And while it might be considered a touch watery compared to better Russian imperial stouts, I found its slickness and smoothness an appropriate delivery system for the well-balanced and agreeable flavors. And since I hate over-carbonated stouts, I can let it slide...and that's what this does, slips and slides easily over the tongue, giving some crazy drinkability for a beer of this type.

Jester King calls this "a cruel and punishing brew." But, nah, not really. Instead, Black Metal has a more Gothic Rock sort of vibe, relative to more beastly examples of the style. If I let go of the fact that the Abbath-looking character on the front, and the name of the beer, are far more menacing than what it actually delivers, I can enjoy this for what it is. I can't put my finger on why I can't lift this above a B+, but screw it...it's a really good stout that drinks easily and is remarkably balanced for such a burly ABV. I'd try more Jester King offerings in a heartbeat.

Lots of bells and whistles. A tad of smoke, more would have been appreciated. Really coffee, big in coffee, a point of astringency. Syrupy sweetener, lots of sugar, and salt. These impeded drinkability.. Huge head, big and foamy.Thanks for sharing Pino.

This seems like a good choice for review #666. Thanks to gawnphishin for the hook-up. Poured from a 750mL bottle into my Bruery tulip.

Seal brown liquid, opaque, seems to rise slowly to the surface as the active massive creamy head builds then recedes ever so slowly - the whole appearance brings to mind a tar sands extraction site. Dense heavy lacing liked whipped cream.

Roasted barley, chocolate and black malt, demerara rum or molasses, with a note of chocolate liqueur and grain in the nose.

Sweet dark palate entry suggestive of cocoa nibs and ganache, licorice, bread crusts, and figs. Some esters emerge mid-palate along with a mild clean bitterness from hops. The finish is medium-dry, earthy, and devoid of alcohol. Maybe the slightest whisper of diacetyl. Mild coffee-like astringency in the bittersweet aftertaste.

Velvety, medium-full bodied, not quite oily, with well concealed ABV.

A pleasing example of the style, though not compared to the best of its peers, this lacks some depth and power.

This will be my third Jester King beer and I doubt I will be disappointed by this one. Every one I've had has impressed me and since today is International Stout Day, I thought it'd be a good idea to pick up Jester King's Black Metal Imperial Stout.

The beer pours a pitch and opaque black. It looks like you're pouring out a dark syrup. The head forms slowly with the bottom formation having an awesome look as the carbonation rises to the top and builds the ultra creamy, chocolate mousse-colored head. No lacing, decent retention, and a bit of head always remains on top. This is a lovely-looking beer.

Roasty, smoky, chocolatey, coffee-y, booze, and a lactose sweetness. I don't think they put lactose in, it isn't mentioned as an ingredient on the bottle, but it seems to be there or something else like it. The booze is pretty strong, it is 10.4% ABV after all, but there is plenty of other aromas.

The flavors don't kick in immediately, but there's some decent hoppy bitterness from hops and a coffee, chocolate, and a bit smoky roastiness that gets stronger as you taste it. Roasted barley is strong while some chocolate bitterness sneaks in there too. It's definitely boozy, adding some warmth and makes for a beer you should drink before bed. Ha! Like most stouts, this gets better as it warms, with all of the complexities becoming more evident. This has some damn good flavors but I do think the booziness hides the other flavors a bit much. It takes away from the robustness.

I'd say this is a bit on the medium side of heavy-bodied but it's by no means light. It's pretty smooth, creamy, and a bit syrupy throughout. The end has a drier finish.

Another damn good and impressive beer by Jester King. I think they may be the most adventurous Texas brewery I've had the pleasure of trying their beers. I've only had three of them but I've been impressed by all three.

Thanks to xpimptastikx for this one. Poured from a 750ml capped bottle into a Darkness snifter.

A: Standard pour yields a barely-there cluster of large, dark mocha colored bubbles that dissipates quickly. A thin ring of chocolate colored foam serves as the only real head. Beer is opaque and pitch black. Lacing is non existant but the legs make my glass a dark tan color. Lack of carbonation really hurts but the legs and color are nice.

S: Nose is a stuffy cocoa powder, chocolate, and mocha. Aromas of roasted malt, espresso beans, and liquorice are deep and mysterious. Very robust and decently aromatic.

T: Opens sweet molasses, chocolate, and cocoa. Espresso beans, roasted malt, and rich dark fruit flavors in the middle with some toffee and tobacco notes. End is sweet with a slight creamy hop bitterness in the back. Finish is brown sugar with a sweet, slight booze and molasses aftertaste. Very smooth and with decent complexity.

M: Medium bodied with little carbonation. Oily and slick in the mouth and goes down super smooth, rich, and viscous. Finish is messy with a slightly hot, lingering aftertaste. Very nice.

O: There was a bit of hype around this beer when it was first released. Having finally gotten a chance to try it, I'd say its well deserved. This one's fallen off the radar a little bit but its definitely worth seeking out. One of the sleepers in the imperial stout category.

A - Pours black as night into a tulip with frothy off white head.

S - Hints of charcoal, dark chocolate and a little coffee. Notes of fresh caramel or toffee are really making their way through as well.

T - Lots of dark chocolate blast the tastebuds in the first sip. This flavor lingers for a long time. Black licorice and charred fruit flavors come into play nicely. Sweet, but not overly done. Flavors of smoked almonds and brown sugar are very agressive and very welcomed.

M - Agressive carbonation keeps this beer from being cloying. Very appropriate and enjoyable.

O - Great beer. This has been on my wants list for quite some time. I will keep this on my list, as I already want more, and the bottle I have, just won't suffice.

Thanks to CuriousMonk for the great trade. Cheers!

Appearance: Pours a beautiful thick black with a one finger medium body cherry soda head that dissipates in a minute or so with a ring of carbonation around the rim

Smell: Chocolate malts and some coffee with an astringent smell, maybe anise or cardamom.

Taste: Very lively on the tongue. lots of carbonation and malts up front. In the middle there some sweet characters maybe dark fruit but mostly malts and chocolate. The end finishes slightly acidic and astringent with some coffee and maybe that anise or cardamom. Finishes clean with a mild coffee aftertaste. correction, after 70 mins of drinking with the bottle sitting out and cork stopped, there are some sweet notes that come out more. there are berry notes, maybe blueberry with sweet malts.

Mouthfeel: medium body with lots of jump on the tongue because of the carbonation level.

Overall: This is a good stout but not my favorite for the style. Too much coffee and chocolate malts and not enough dark fruits. The astringent quality is also not desirable.

At the brewery on tap in snifter. 10%

A: Black, dark as night. 1" Brown head light lacing. Good carbonation.

S: Spices and malts, chocolate. Not a strong smell.

T: Oh so good, tiny bitter of chocolate followed by malts spices and little burn of alcohol. Did I mention this is good?

MF: little fizzy from carbonation, slight sticky.

OA: Need more of this in my life, cold is good as is, as it warms to room temp it comes alive even more. Had it on tap at The Saucer and now at the brewery itself, life is good. Now need to open a bottle.

Standard pour into a Duvel tulip.

A: Dark, ropey pour. Completely opaque, jet black body in the glass. Very dense looking. Large bubbles settle into a weak, tight, sienna foam.

S: Dutch cocoa, light alcohol on the back end. Faint hint of an herbal sweetness, like licorice root/sasparilla.

T: A round bitterness like high quality semi-sweet chocolate at the front. Lots of roast, but more chocolate than coffee. Little to no taste of alcohol. Subsides into a rich, prune like sweetness.

M: Thick and slick in that peculiarly stout sort of way.

O: Complex, I get the impression a lot of work went into this craft stout. You could contrast this with some of the drier stouts-- it doesn't have that acerbic character, rather a sort of decadent fruity dimension. Well worth a nine dollar pint.

Note: I really enjoy the bottle design (despite the cheesy metal head on the front). Good technical info on the back, and I appreciate the vegan/vegetarian seal of approval (it is brewed in Austin after all).

750 mL bottle to a taster. No bottle date. Reviewed from notes.

Appearance - No head. Viscous black. Some bubbles form after, which confuses me. Whatever.

Smell - Chocolate all over. Not a whole lot else.

Taste - Bitter chocolate and then some caramel. A nice bitterness develops with a good coffee roast. Hoppy bitter finish, but it's light.

Mouthfeel - Slick and not as viscous as it looks. Bitter finish is light, but rounds it out nicely.

Oveall - A little dull. Decent, but not necessarily much better than what my local brewery can make.

64 oz growler into an oversized tulip glass. This one was courtesy of jhimstedt in a recent exchange. Thanks for the trade Jared!

This pours blacker than an oil slick into the glass and is topped with thick creamy finger of milk chocolate colored head. Just a magnificently robust look on this, which retain with a tight ½ finger of froth that absolutely slathers the sides of the glass with spotty lace and brown dirty looking oils that slowly slide down. The aroma smells of burnt leather, smoke, and roasted coffee, which all surrounds a sweet and juicy core of chocolate, toffee, and citric fruit. Leafy hops and spicy alcohol esters trail off and linger in the nostrils.

The taste starts with a thick sweet base of chocolate malts (and some tangier caramel notes as well) which gives this a big creamy sweetness that then gives way to some dark burnt malts. Hops pull up the back as well, with a bitterness that works great with the roasted character that is present and also adds some pithy citric fruit flavors (that get progressively darker feeling the more this warms up) that mixes in and nicely compliments the sweetness of the malts. Burnt finish on this with a LOT of dry lingering spicy alcohol notes. The mouthfeel is full bodied, with a thick and creamy feel that's a bit sharp up front but then gets much more chewy and viscous feeling as this works itself around in the mouth. That big ABV gives this a satisfying beefy power to the feel yet alcohol warmth is very minimal and keeps this hugely drinkable for the size. Color me impressed.

This was a darn impressive debut from Jester King, which really swung for the fences (and mostly cleared it) with this monstrous Russian Imperial Stout. While I was looking for a bit more flavor complexity out of this overall, there's no doubt that this beer has the needed attitude to hang with some of the big boys out there. I will seek more of this one out. It's pretty damn good.

To review this beer I obviously put on some black metal in the background. Selected tracks of Pantera, In Flames, and, of course, Black Label Society. Oh! and Slayer!

A: Dark motor oil black. Thin espresso like head with some decent lacying.

S: I get caramelized stone fruits with burnt sugar and coffee. A back end aroma of tobacco smoke and roast.

T: Dark chocolate, burnt sugar, and caramelized stone fruits. Just like the smell but a hint of raisin as well.

M: Thick viscous tar like fluid. A meal in a glass. This might be my favorite trait about this beer. This is a meal in a bottle. Monks could survive on this for all of Lent, past Easter, hit up some middle eastern holidays and finish off at Christmas with just one bottle.

O: Good Imp. Stout, no doubt. But the price is high and it isn't better than Old Raspy. I'll buy more to see what time does but don't kill yourself for this beer.

Big thanks goes out to lnashsig for sending me a few bottles of this in a recent trade! Shared this one with beeruser and funkydelic during one of our weekly tastings! Served from bottle into a Mikkeller flute. Poured pitch black with a half finger tan head that subsided to a minimal amount slowly. Maintained nice lacing throughout the glass. The aroma was comprised of sweet malt, dark chocolate, caramel, coffee, and wood. The flavor was of sweet malt, roasted malt, dark chocolate, caramel, slight coffee, and subtle alcohol. It had a heavy feel on the palate with medium carbonation. Overall this was a pretty good brew. The flavor on this one was quite complex to say the least. If the alcohol note had not been present at all this one it could have been other-worldly good. The aroma on this one was quite excellent as well and full of complexities. A definite must try before you die or kill your liver.
