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”).

PhillyCraft (3225) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 7, 2012
4 oz sample from a tap to my glass at the BBF 12. Pour was mirror black with small to med beige head, small amt of lacing. Aromas and taste of peat, cofffe, burnt wood, licorice, biscuit, and light pepper. This one was way hotter then the non barrel aged weasel rodeo. A little too much smoke, coffee, and roast for me.
