Beer geeks and rodeos dont often go together, but if ever there were a place where the two would meet, it would be Denmark No one from Jester King has ever been to Denmark, but our friends Mikkel and Thomas tell us the entire country is inhabited by craft beer drinking, spicy food loving Viking cowboys and cowgirls, and we think that sounds awesome. So as they say in Danish, bunden i vejret eller resten i haret, which we believe is pro-nounced Yee-haw! Jester King Craft Brewery is an authentic farm-house brewery in the beautiful Texas Hill Country, on the outskirts of Austin. We brew what we like, drink what we want and offer the rest to those who share our tastes.

Imperial Oatmeal Stout brewed with smoked malt, chipotle peppers and Vietnamese coffee.

Pour out of 750 mL, thanks Stephen! Dark black pour with tan head, aroma brought big notes of anise, coffee, slight vanilla, hints of vegetal from the chilies, hints of chocolate, more coffee, some dark fruits come through as well. Taste is a mix of dark fruit, smoky chilis, hints of vanilla, chocolate, coffee, slight anise in there, finishing fairly bitter, roasted, with a slight burn at the end. Pretty nice stuff, stout with chilis done well.

Bottle at the final Crooked Stave release of 2012. Pour is dark brown, almost black with a big brown head and good lacing. Coffee, roast, caramel, light peppers, potpourri, and bread in the aroma. Taste is roasty, big dark chocolate, coffee, toffee, caramel, cinnamon, and bread with a lightly spicy finish. Creamy mouthfeel with soft carbonation. Pretty good stuff and not a sign of alcohol in sight.

Draft. The look is dark, black in color, has a nice big tan head. The smell is roasty, chocolate, slight chile pepper, and coffee. The taste is good similar to the taste but with the chile pepper taste coming through.

my least favorite of the 3 JK/Mikkeller stout collabs. This is good but was lacking compared to the other 2. smooth, oily, rich mouthfeel. moderate coffee melds well with roasted malts. chipotle seem muted compared to the others.

On tap at Mikkeller Bar, November 2012. Black with a small tan head. Roasted malt, coffee, also some light notes of smoke and caramel. The finish was dry and on the bitter side.

Draft at Mikkeller Bar, Black Celebration. An opaque black beer with a small light brown head. Thick coffee, roasty nose with plummy accents. Very smooth texture with a dry roasted bitter finish. Faint chili notes. Lovely.

25.4 oz bottle. Dark brown with a thick, foamy tan head. Nose is chocolate, coffee, caramel, oats, light smoke and hay. Medium to full body, a bit chalky with a tang and spicy tongue tip burn. Taste starts with a huge slap of intense coffee and smoky chipotle. Sweet citrus compliments the rich chocolate base. Finishing as silky and seductive as the opening is brash.
