Jester King's First Seasonal

Press release from one of Austin's newest breweries below. Clearly these guys are having fun with their young business. Can't wait to try some!
Press Release: Jester King Set to Release Black Metal Imperial Stout Jester King Craft Brewery
13005 Fitzhugh Road
Austin, TX 78736
(512) 364-7278

AUSTIN, TEXAS Jester King Craft Brewery is set to release their first ever seasonal beer – 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.

Black Metal is Jester King’s winter seasonal release. Weighing in at about 10% ABV, it’s filled with huge flavors of roast, chocolate, burnt malt and alcohol and carries a hint of leather. We encourage Black Metal to be enjoyed from a snifter at a serving temperature between 57 and 61 degrees Fahrenheit.

Black Metal is currently available only in kegs. It will be available in 750mL bottles later this winter. If you would like to have Black Metal at your establishment, please contact us at the phone number listed above.

:-) This is not spam. Just a cry for help from one beer centric family to another. I know this isn't necessarily post-related but I wondered if you might help me pick out a beer for a favored beer drinker in my life. I thought I'd seek help from the yahoo answers community but there is nothing like the advice of a fellow craft beer lover. If you have the time please stop by and check out my question, it's the most recent post (12/16/10). Thanks! :-) And I love the blog! - Ashley

We are in the planning stages of a brewery in the Northeast USA and articles such as yours are very helpful. Thank you.
