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.

Poured a deep brown with a beige head. Aroma of smokey malt, coffee grinds, dark chocolate. Full body, flavour as the aroma, a bit peppery, some wood. Dry, bitter finish.

ogniskowicz (338) - POLAND - APR 13, 2015
Aromat: paloność, drewno, likier kawowy i specyficzna przyprawowość, w tle delikatna śmietanka i alkohol. Wygląd: klasyczny RIS Smak: jest palono-czekoladowo z muśnięciem kawowego likieru, alkohol grzejący przełyk, ale niewyczuwalny zbytnio w smaku, do tego lekko mleczny akcent i lekko szczypiący pieprz w finiszu. Dziwny, intrygujący, ale świetny RIS.

50cl bottle shared by Arve_Christian - thanks! Pours close to black with beige head. Roasty aroma with mild wooden notes, hints of citrus, licorice and spices. Strange, but delicious! Balanced and easy to drink!

Leighton (13344) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 14, 2015
Bottle shared at the Cotteridge Convention 2015. Pours oily black-brown with a creamy beige head. The nose holds rich burnt cedar, chocolate. Medium sweet flavor with heavy charred wood, earth, dirt, bitter cocoa. Full bodied with fine carbonation. The oppressive burnt wood character continues into the finish, with further earthy bitterness, mild chocolate, cedar. A bit heavy. Not very drinkable.
