COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Danish: Hvem Xiquic egentlig var kan være lidt vanskeligt at forklare i korte vendinger, men de heltmodige tvillinger kender vi alle: Wayne Wambles og Jacob Storm - chefbryggere på henholdsvis Cigar City Brewing i Tampa, Florida og så her hos os på Amager Bryghus. Siden sit første besøg på bryghuset tilbage i 2011 har Wayne været lidt af et idol for os. Vi har nemlig svært ved at forestille os nogen, der er mere dedikeret og kompromisløs i sin tilgang til brygning - og det kombineret med ægte passion og sans for detaljen. Derfor var det en stor ære, at Wayne tog imod vores invitation om at brygge hos os - og det endda på hans fødselsdag! Opskriften blev skabt gennem en endeløs række e-mails. Cigar Citys signatur-ingrediens - cedertræet - blev bestilt hjem og en fødselsdagskage blev bagt. Det blev en sjov dag - og vi håber at du vil have det sjovt med at smage denne dobbeltmæskede cedertræslagrede peber Imperial Stout - ja intet mindre. Det er lidt af et bæst - men et blidt og venligt bæst.

English: Who Xiquic was, is a bit hard to explain - but we all know the hero twins: Wayne Wambles and Jacob Storm - headbrewers of Cigar City Brewing in Tampa, FL and Amager Bryghus, Denmark respectively. Since his first visit at Amager back in 2011 Wayne has been quite the idol for us. We don’t believe it’s possible to find anyone with a bigger heart in brewing - combined with the utmost passion and sense for detail. Therefore it was a great honor to us that Wayne accepted our invitation to come brew at Amager Bryghus - even on his birthday! A recipe was created from what seemed like an endless stream of emails. The Cigar City signature cedar wood was ordered and a birthday cake was baked. We had a fun day - we hope you’ll have fun enjoying this double mash cedar infused black pepper Imperial Stout, yeah, no kiddin’. It’s a bit of a beast - but a gentle one.

In taste dark chocolate mixed with cedar, coffee, licorice and again pepper in the finish. Full bodied, oily and smooth on the palate, good bitterness in the finish, the beer is not very sweet. Great beer, very nicely mixed cedar and pepper, ecerything fits just right.

jjgmd (1750) - Coral Springs, Florida, USA - AUG 25, 2015
Shared 22 with Zach, pours a dark black pour with a Java head. Nose is malt with strong cedar and pepper. Taste is very strong cedar and peppery on the palate. The cedar wood beers from CCB are quite distinctive and are either acquired or take it or leave it. Worth a try ! The finish is moderately long , malty without any real sweetness and ends with a forest of cedar. Quaff Score 7 / 10

wlajwl (4695) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - AUG 13, 2015
Aroma is spices, chocolate and dark malts, kind of similar to a Mexican stout. The flavor is spices, garden vegetables, chocolate, dark malts and a warning/slightly sour finish.

I like pepper. Luckily. This is a pretty different beer but in a really cool way. So many different flavours in a serious stout - that work. I get the obvious pepper, dark chocolate, wood, spices but also some eucalyptus or mint or maybe new tennis ball haha. I like it

from Erzbierschof - black beer with a little long lasting dark beige foamroasted aroma of black chocolate; gentle hints of wood and a bolder presence of pepper; full-bodied and a soft carbonation, dry and fairly bitter; more wood presence in the finish where the black pepper dominates chocolate and tobacco
