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”).

Flavors are of nougat, coffee, dark fruit and a touch of acidity. Lots of nutty notes, roast, light smoke. Medium bodied for how big it is, fuller carbonation. Mild barrel.

brokensail (10744) - Orange County, California, USA - FEB 25, 2013
Black pour with a rather tall mocha head. The nose is a bit tart and metallic, kind of a green apple note to it. Otherwise, some good roasted malt, vanilla, whiskey, and coffee notes. A bit of dark chocolate and oak, too. The flavor has a nice roast character, some hints of vanilla, whiskey, and coffee. A definite char flavor, some alcohol, dark chocolate, and a tart, green apple finish.

Palme (3284) - Bergen, NORWAY - FEB 8, 2013
From 0.75l bottle @ Borefts 2012. It’s as good as jet black in the glass this one, but the head glimmers with it’s absence. On the nose is amazingly lovely. Vanilla roasted coconut with rich buttery chocolate and deep dark Brazilianized amazonian coffee on wood with some brown muscavado sugar on the side. Rich and lovely aromatic. It has a small prickling carbonation level and a rich oily mouthfeel. The taste is also somewhat vanilla infused, lot’s of fantastic cold coffee, deep roasted goodness, bitter dark chocolate and it ends with a throat-warming chili-like alcohol burning. Really fancypancy stuff that I enjoyed to the maximum. 28.09.2012

Bottle 750ml. @ 4th Borefts Beer Festival 2012, Brouwerij de Molen, Bodegraven, Netherlands.

Clear dark black brown colour with virtually none head. Aroma is light heavy malty, roasted, chocolate, beery, malty, barrel - earthy notes. Flavour is heavy sweet and moderate to heavy bitter with a long duration, dark malt, dark chocolate, artificial sweet and artificial berries ? maybe it is the chipotle pepper. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft. [20120928]

Bottle thanks to errl. Pours a dense black with a thin tan head of foam. Aroma is booze and some vegetal notes on top of some coffee. Malty sweet. A bit of a miss for me.

Plovmand (6349) - Helsinge, DENMARK - DEC 17, 2012
Bottle shared by my good friend Søren. Pours jet black with a small brown head. The aroma is hard roasted malt, chili, coffee and a great kick of whiskey. The flavour is an awesome mix of chili, cocoa, roasted malt and sweet whiskey. Great ! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Schokoladiger Beginn mitröstig-hefigen Noten. Dabei sind Alkoholnoten (nicht negativ) schmeckbar. Starke Karbonisierung, zum Ende nussig, etwas brennend. 11/11/10/11//11
