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”).

Poured a deep dark black with the most interesting head I have seen in a while- frothy and big and small bubbles competing. Taste was heavy whisky, but I appreciated the hotness- very yummy.

Pours a black, oil like color, with a nice viscosity. Coffee, whiskey, and chocolate on the nose; follows onto the palate. Ends with less heat than the Weasel Rodeo. A complex beer, with the alcohol well hidden.

750mL bottle. Poured viscous deep brown with a rich, quite dark brown head. The aroma picked up very enjoyable, semi-sweet coffee paired with toasty, spicy whiskey, oak barrel, and deep notes of vanilla bean.. complementary smoked peppers on the back of the nose.. great! The flavor found near-burnt coffee, licorice, and smoked chocolatey notes at the core, with smoky whiskey and tasty dried peppers through the finish.. peppery warmth built as the drink progressed, and had quite a kick with the alcohol on the finish.. tasty stuff! Heavier-bodied with silky, higher carbonation on the palate.. spicy and barrel-y, but everything worked well together.. I really enjoyed the use of the peppers in here.

Bottle from Rosebud Butternuts. Cheers, Eric! Pours a deep motor oil color with a tan head. Nose is roast, big kopi, coffee, earth, some light peat character, dark chocolate, earthy peppers, some light oak, vanilla, and more earth. Flavor is wonderfully complex like only a stout can be: earth, peat, moves to whiskey, vanilla, oak, chocolate, cocoa, kopi, coffee, black coffee, chocolate bar, then finishing somewhat dry with earthy peppers and light heat on the back end. Medium in body and really a beautiful blend of these flavors; lingering earthy peppers and slight peat into the finish.

On tap @ Lake Saucer Beerfeast. Deep black pour with some tan head. Big time whiskey aroma with some vanilla, coffee, peppers, and chocolate. I got a lot more chipotle heat for this version than the original which built more and more with each sip. Lots of roasted malt and coffee. This was amazing and I’m very glad I got to try it.

MattSweatshirt (9) - - AUG 24, 2012 does not count
New bottle poured into a snifter. Comes out black with a big super dark brown head that starts out large and pillowy but falls down fairly quickly. You get coffee, whiskey, chipotle pepper, and the best combination that comes in barrel aged stouts with the chocolate and vanilla. The taste on this is great. The whiskey is prevalent and big right up there with the roast and coffee flavors. The chipotle takes hold at the end of things and a spicy warmth lingers on the lips and in the mouth. It’s got a big body and modest carbonation. There’s a slight pop of barrel character. Even at a big 12.1 I’m not picking up any alcohol and it drinks just as easy as the other beers in this whole Rodeo trilogy.

Bottle @ Borefts 12. Pitch black, light brown head. Smells bourbon, sweet, chocolate, caramel. Tastes bourbon, some sour notes but also a lot of sweetness. Dark chocolate, cocoa, roasty and some coffee. Full body, nice carbo.
