5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
Pours pitch black with a large dark brown, mocha head. Smells strongly of chocolate with a strong coffee presence. Taste is bold: lots of chocolate, coffee, and some spice heat underneath. Full-bodied with a thick, chewy texture and mild mouth-carbonation, Jester King/Mikkeller Beer Geek Rodeo finishes with some solid pepper heat.

4.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
On tap at Tap Exchange, San Antonio TX
Very good beer. Aroma is of coffee and malts. Strong smell. Dark brown to black body with a very tan head that lasted the whole time. Taste was of coffee with great spice. It actually burned my throat a few times (in a good way, helped me to experience the peppers better). very heavy, very thick. Moderate carbonation. Easy to drink for its style but again, very strong.

4.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
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.

4.4 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Sample at Copenhagen Beer Celebration. Smokey, peppery and roasty aroma, balanced by sweetish malty notes, lovely. Sweet, malty and roasty flavour, the smokey and peppery notes are fairly moderate, the coffee notes linger in the aftertaste. A pretty impressive beer.

Cask at Texas Beerfest. Pours a black with medium tan head that lasts awhile leaving sticky lacing along the glass. The aroma is smoke and pepper. Thin mouthfeel with smokey malt and roast with a sweet finish. Really enjoye this one, a very impressive Imperial stout from JK/Mikkeller.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
(750ml bottle) jet black pour, thick creamy very dark tan head with excellent lacing and retention. Looks thick and viscous. Nose of fresh cold-pressed coffee, mild chipotle, sweet medium dark chocolate, oats and graham cracker. Taste of nicely spicy chipotle peppers, fudge, cold-pressed coffee, and oats. Thick body, smooth palate, natural carbonation, the palate finish is a damn near perfect mix of dark chocolate, smoothness from the oats and a nice spicy linger without being overbearing. Excellent.
