COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This version of Jester King and Mikkeller’s collaborative imperial oatmeal stout, made with chipotle peppers and smoked malt, was aged for six months in Tennessee whiskey barrels, prior to the addition of a special blend of Vietnamese coffees, including a large portion of authentic Kopi Luwak coffee (a.k.a. “weasel coffee”).

No head. Aroma is slightly rich and sweet, dark sugar, oak, minerals, dark malts, dark fruits, licorice, grass, minerals, bourbon, bark, weeds, grassy chillies. Taste is slightly sour-ish dry, weeds, dark malts, oak, bark, booze, minerals, grass, burnt sugar, grassy chillies, burnt coffee. Medium bitterness, dry mineraly and watery mouthfeel. Not even close to as good as I remember it. Way over the top.

wchesser (1900) - Denver, Colorado, USA - DEC 31, 2014
Bottle from errl a loonng time ago. One of the best labels ever. Pours viscous black with coffee crema colored rim. Nose of sweet bourbon, rich dark malts, vanilla, rich chocolate, and dark coffee. Taste follows but with nicely warming chile heat and flavors, slick mouthfeel. The best of the three variations of this. Has held up well in the cellar.

brystmar (1314) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JUL 3, 2014
Over-carbonated. But underneath is a deliciously roasty gem. Barrel accents the base nicely; booze & coffee depth for days. Certainly better than I expected.

jbeatty (1244) - New York, USA - JUN 15, 2014
Bottle, 06/15/2014. Pours black, fluffy dark tan head rests easy on the surface, nice retention, medium ring of lacing built up around the glass. Aroma is roasted coffee, a bit acidic and unctuous, sweet dark chocolate, vanilla, smoke, mild peppers and wood, nice bourbon notes coming out as the beer warms. Taste is dark chocolate, moderately sweet, offset by bitter roast, growing chili heat, oily coffee, light vanilla, lingering smoke, subtle bourbon and heat. Medium thick body. Still tasty.

Bottle split at Bruce’s pad, thanks to Kenny, 12/05/14. Pitch black with a moderate tan swirl. Nose carries big roasted vibes, dark chocolat, whisky resonance, light coffee, molastic pangs. Taste comprises rich chocolate, toffee fudge, brown sugars, coffee grinds, subtle enough bourbonics, spice, shades of green pepper. Medium + body, fine carbonation, light spice and BA notes ring out in the close. Solid!

Bottle shared at a tasting at Beer Market Jaffa. Pours opaque black with a brown head, aroma of chocolate, coffee, red pepper, wood, whiskey, vanilla and milk, flavor of chocolate, brandy, whiskey, wood, zest and spiciness, some vanilla and fruity notes, medium to full bodied. Great

75 cl bottle @ home. Pours black with a little sediment and a tan head that leaves some lacing. Aroma and flavour are coffee, whiskey, chili, roasted malt, and chocolate - with a bitter finish.
