A: Pours Blacker then the blackest black times infinity. A dryed blood color finger of head.

S: smells of BLACK Coffee and Rotting Farmhouse yeast! and some boozyness...

T: hell fire roasted Cocoa, slight festering malts and yeast and vanilla bean tears ov dying angels

M: thick as blood with a generous amount ov carbonation

This brew was defiantly spawned from the darkest pits ov hell to pay homage to Black Metal and SATAN! \m/

Bottled 2013. From bottle to goblet.

Pours deep dark black and compliments the screech owls in the background of my porch. Medium brown head that retains well and leaves subtle lacing.

Smells like a good Imperial stout brewed in a barn in all the right ways. Dark malts with hints of sour and funk.

Tastes like a good Stout at first then blast beats into a crazy farmhouse/saison with sourness and funk carried by the Black malt in all it's roasted complexity. Notes of coffee, chocolate and dark fruit with hints of hay then other strange flavor combinations.

Feels like the best of both styles. With a juicy thick body and a slight lingering astringency.

Overall I only thought this brew was okay when I had it young, 3 to 5 months old, but maturation in the cellar has made a world of difference! 2 styles that I love brought together in a beautifully dark, well balanced, union. Would like to see other brewery's attempted this style!
A brutally delicious brew!
... And quite Metal!!!
