COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Beer geeks and rodeos donít 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 ďYee-haw!Ē 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.

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.

TheEpeeist (3351) - Media, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 29, 2012
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.

Mouthfeel is smooth, creamy, slightly spicy hot, oily and near full bodied.

5000 (6300) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - SEP 30, 2012
Bottle:   Black, thin beige sudsy head, little lacing.   Roasty nose, chocolate, a little spicy too.   Roasty on the tongue, sweet, a little milky, chocolate, with a soft spicy chili pepper aspect.   Thankfully its not too overpowering.   Chili pepper comes out more as it warms up.   Roastiness dies down, chocolate (dark) comes out as well.   Does appear to have a little bit of smokiness to it.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   The spiciness creep sup after the finish on this one.   Not a hoppy example, or too heavy.   Clean, easy to drink, and well balanced.   Thanks Bill!

ansermadide (1520) - Kyle, Texas, USA - SEP 27, 2012
It pours a very deep and rich black color with a thick, almost menacing, medium brown colored head. Its aroma is so rich and roasted that itís bitter, but with noticeable notes of chocolate malts, a warmth in the nose much like that of a chile pepper chocolate bar, and a tease of alcohol. I donít normally notice peppers in the nose like this. Itís much lighter in the mouth as I expected this to be (1.013 FG is pretty light, after all), which prevents this extremely rich beer from completely clogging up your senses (and gut). The oats are present in just the right amount to add a hint of smoothness, while not noticeably contributing to its flavor - which is dominated by a very nice balance of coffee, chocolate malts, and a touch of chipotle. The smokiness of the chipotle also adds a nice characteristic of smoke without making the beer actually taste like smoke or smoked malts. This was definitely a good idea for a recipe, well-balanced, and well executed. While still extremely rich on the palate, itís still very easy to drink. It finishes with an almost medicine-like flavor of alcohol and chocolate peppers. ...Thatís my kind of medicine. Iíll hold on to a bottle of this to age a few years and give you another update in 2015.

Leighton (10969) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 26, 2012
Draft at the Copenhagen Beer Celebration 2012. Pours oily black with a big, brown foam head. Dark malt nose, burnt wood, faint plastic, very fant chilies, some age. medium to big sweet flavor, strong roasted malts, dark chocolate, decent bit of spicy heat, some peaty earth. Medium to full bodied with fine carbonation. Moderate warmth to finish, the spiciness picks up a bit, especially in the throat, but itís just about the perfect level of spice - not too much, not too little. Pretty nice chili impy.
