Jester King is ready to release Funk Metal Sour Barrel-Aged Stout. For this funky release, the brewery took an imperial stout and fermented it with a farmhouse yeast and aged it in oak barrels. The barrels are full of wild yeast and funky souring bacteria that make this beer a must have.
Down below heavy clouds, swollen and green with electric rain, the two-grinned snake waves at us in the arrythmic symphony. We dance up the leg of a star dusted mountain; from its summit our souls are projected into the darkness of the universe as scattered laser light beams. We seek the taste of eternity. You dig?

Flavor? Per JK: The finished beer retains aromas of chocolate and roast but takes on a distinct vinous character and sour complexity from extended aging and fermentation in oak barrels.
