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.

Bottle at Good, Bad, Ugly tasting 2014. Roasty with strong coffee notes in the aroma and flavor. A bit of coffee/roast tartness in the finish. Not bad.

Habanero (4119) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK, DENMARK - OCT 10, 2014
Bottled. Pours pitch blak and a small, creamy and lacing tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, chocolate and coffee. Sweet flavor that ends up more dry, with alcohol, a hint of chili and slightly bitter. Medium to full bodied, oily texture and soft carbonation. An excellent Impy.

TXBadger (2565) - Dallas, Texas, USA - SEP 27, 2014
Reviewed from notes: pours a nice black oil like color with khaki colored head. Cocoa, roasted malt, and coffee on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes with some heat from the peppers, and gives a nice warming sensation.

wchesser (1920) - Denver, Colorado, USA - DEC 28, 2013
From a trade with Errl-thanks, Chris! Deep thick black. Lots of coffee on the nose, with some earthy chipotle. Taste is chocolate, light heat, subtle smokiness, coffee and burnt malt finish. Chewy, viscous mouthfeel. About 2 years old? Very good, but didn’t quite match up to the Darkness and Huny also tasted that night.

kevinator (1851) - The Colony, Texas, USA - NOV 30, 2013
Really good. Nice blend of spice, roasted malt and coffee aromas. Intensely dark with a dark brown head that left nice lacing. Full weighty palate that had a slightly oily sense. Carbonation was at a good level and not distracting. Flavors blended well. You could tell this was a Mikkeller recipe with a Jester King spin. Good coffee, roasted barley, and some chocolate with a spicy finish. Just superb.

Rated at BTBF 2012 (Backlog). Black in color with a good sized tan head. Aroma is of molasses, coffee, leather and earth. Taste is of black peppercorn, coffee, smoke, booze and molasses. Thick and smooth.
