In a move that was surely made just to give this blog some­thing to write about, Jester King Craft Brew­ery in Austin Texas – a very new ven­ture, by the look of it – has announced Black Metal Impe­r­ial Stout:

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.

If you’re in the Austin area, here are some details of how you can get hold of some.

Accord­ing to the brewer Jef­frey, the brew is “filled with huge fla­vors of roast, choco­late, burnt malt and alco­hol and car­ries a hint of leather”. We’re a lit­tle wor­ried about beer tast­ing of leather… I guess as long as it’s not sweaty old stud­ded cod-piece leather it should be ok!

What’s the ver­dict – is this kvlt?
