750 ml bottle into the trusty and eponymous Jester King snifter. Black with a tan, fine head. Smells of whiskey, plum, well-roasted coffee, smoked barley, cinnamon, salted caramel. Taste is quite robust. The coffee is more prevalent than others note, but it’s back seat to the whiskey, dark chocolate, sweet and spicy pepper, fig, light floral hops. The chipotle heat has accumulated by the end of the first 3 oz. Barrel treatment has done great things for an already great beer. Best Jester King effort yet!

Wow! Damn near a 50 point beer. Aroma of roasted malts, sweet chocolate, dark dried fruits, cherries, light spice and coffee. Taste is a nice mix of roasted coffee, sweet chocolate, vegetal peppers, light sourness/spiciness and a good well balanced bitterness into the finish... Absolutely one of the best beers I’ve had 5o date as the slick mouthfeel on this beer makes it unreal!

750 bottle. Tastes like Old euro stout. Burnt coffee. Bitter roast. Not getting any coffee or pepper. Maybe it was better 3 years ago.

Bottle pour into a snifter. Pours a thick, viscous black with a khaki colored head of foam. The aroma has smoke, peppers, caramel, coffee, ash. Taste is smoky and sweet. Thicker mouthfeel with low to moderate carbonation.

Bottle from errl forever ago! Thanks, Chris! Dark black, not super viscous but up there. Nose is terrific coffee, dark and burnt malt, light sweet vanilla. Flavor follows nose, smooth coffee, lightly sweet vanilla and dark chocolate, with chipotle just lending a bit of heat without much chipotle flavor. Rich, but not decadent. Smoother than the regular Rodeo, presumably from the better coffee. Good stuff.

Tmoney99 (12072) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 20, 2014
Bottle shared by b3shine. Poured a dark brown color with an average frothy brown head that lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy roasted chocolate, coffee, hot spice and alcohol aroma. Medium to heavy toasted dark chocolate and spice malt flavor with a medium to heavy sweet and spice finish of moderate to long duration. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. This is a solid beer.

750 ml bottle shared by b3shine. Pours a dark cola brown color with a thin off white film. The aroma and flavor have roasted malt, great coffee notes, chocolate, chipotle peppers, mild smokey character, everything I get is good, my only knock on this is the lack of carbonation, nothing really pops, more carbonation makes this a 4 for sure.

750ml bottle, thanks to b3shine for sharing. Bottle is labeled 10.01%. Very dark brown color. Very small ring of light brown bubbly head. Couple dots of lace. Awesome coffee in the nose. Questionable production methods or not, Kopi Luwak does magic for my nose. In the flavor, great kopi luwak coffee, and a nice light bit of chipotle pepper at the back end. Good light smokiness is evident throughout the whole thing. Well-blended with the rest of the aroma. Good roast malt, and dark chocolate. Hint of dark fruit. Medium to bigger body. Smooth, chewy, lighter carbonation. Very light carbonation. Seems to be an issue with my fellow raters. Doesn’t bother me too much, though. Moderate to bigger bitter taste, light alcohol warmth, light sweet. Tasty, interesting, impressive stuff.
