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”).

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.

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 (1104) - 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.

Theydon_Bois (11073) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - JUN 8, 2014
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!

zvikar (3897) - Ramat Gan, ISRAEL - JUN 7, 2014
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

Yorker (1459) - Herning, DENMARK - JUN 6, 2014
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.

DSG (7456) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - MAY 29, 2014
Bottle shared at a tasting at Beer Market Jaffa. Black with a big brown head, a bit creamy. Lovely aroma, a bit alcoholic, with whiskey, vanilla, chocolate, coffee, some roastiness and a vegetal note. Alcoholic flavor, rather sweet, with dark chcoolate, some coffee, whiskey, vanilla and a somewhat burning finish with some hot chili. Full-bodied, quite silky. A bit too hot but still great.

Black with a nice dark mocha head. Aroma of chocolate, vanilla, caramel, roast, and chilly. Taste of chocolate and spice and all things nice. Awesome beer.

hopscotch (9891) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAY 22, 2014
Bottle... This beer rocks!… Dark brown ale with a small, creamy, khaki head. The bouquet is a luxuriant fusion of dark chocolate crème, vanilla and coconut. Full-bodied and velvety with tingly carbonation. The flavor and finish are boozy swirls of dark chocolate, sourmash whiskey and coconut. Leaves a comfortable warming sensation in both my throat and chest. Another world class Jester King treatment generously supplied by Rosebud butternuts!

Tasting at Bruce’s pad. Opaque dark brown beer, good tan head. Smooth palate, softish, fine carbonation. Rich dark chocolate malts. Little dark malt cream. Minor dark fruits. Chilli itch in the background. Mild whisky on the back end. Smooth finish with a chilli linger, not too strong. Flavoursome!
