Jester King Funk Metal
Jester King Funk Metal is an American Wild Ale that is essentially a sour barrel aged version of their Black Metal Farmhouse Imperial Stout. I got this in a trade and I’ve been holding onto it for about a year or so for no particular reason. Thanks Dan! Getting lots of sour cherries and straight rubbing alcohol on the nose. The taste however has stumped me more than any other I can think of in recent years. This is one crazy beer with an almost overwhelming array of flavors. I’m tasting lots of bitter coffee, tart cherries and some chocolate. This finish is all intense oak, bitter and dry. I am so glad this ended up being a beer I shared with the guys, this would have been just too much for me to handle on my own. One of those times when my respect for the beer maybe out weighs my overall enjoyment of it. Definitely seek this out if you love extreme beer drinking, you will certainly appreciate it as much as I did!
