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.

Bottle. Pours black with a small brown head. Aroma is thick with strong, tactile pepper, spices and some roast and chocolate. Taste is extremely spicy and quite bitter but also smooth and balanced. The peppery presence has lots of staying power, remaining strong throughout the experience. As it warms the pepper becomes more managable and compliments the oaky undertones. Somewhat boozy but not overly so.

Bottle shared with ajax25g for his birthday, pleasure drinking with you. Completely black. nice brown head. Aroma of cigar humidor, holy cow! Taste is burnt espresso, licorice, dark bitter cocoa. Tobacco plus cedar, first time I’ve seen this in a dark beer. Works pretty damn well.
