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?
