COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Beer geeks and rodeos don’t 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.

Capped 750 from ericandersnavy. Pours dark brown/black with a slight dark tan head. Aroma is hot (spice) and coffee. Full bodied. Flavor is hot spice and coffee over smooth burnt malt. Seems to be treacle in it. Finishes pretty much that way. Nice.

OmegaX (1233) - Florida, USA - JUL 30, 2012
Woah! This one was another stand out at my local tasting. Nose of roast, earth, chocolate, coffee, and slight smoke. Pour is black with a tan head. Light, earthy chili flavors and roasted coffee went well with the chocolatey malt backbone here. I could drink a ton of this stuff! A big thanks to Matt for this one!!

Chipalsa (1307) - Florida, USA - JUL 30, 2012
This beer was pretty damn good. The body was an oily black, and had a whopper-like head. Aromas were of roasted malts, dirt and dark chocolate. Flavors were a bit smoky and earthy, and almost went on to taste like a lightly smoked porter. As it warmed up the peppers came through and had a very satisfying chocolate finish with light bitterness. Supplied by the very generous OmegaX.

hopscotch (8912) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JUL 25, 2012
Bottle... Pours black with a mid-sized, beige head. Fantastic retention. Chocolaty nose with only a rumor of smoke and nuttiness. Medium to full-bodied with airy carbonation. The flavor is deeply roasted, carbonic and lightly acrid. Smoky peppers and a hint of spicy heat in the finish. Quite enjoyable. Bottle courtesy of ericandersnavy!

Bottle shared by my good friend Waffle, thanks dude! I found this beer to be extremely well balanced and full of flavor. The coffee and peppers really compliment each other well here. Not too spicy but the peppers are definitely in there. A great showing here.
