COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Danish: Hvem Xiquic egentlig var kan vre lidt vanskeligt at forklare i korte vendinger, men de heltmodige tvillinger kender vi alle: Wayne Wambles og Jacob Storm - chefbryggere p henholdsvis Cigar City Brewing i Tampa, Florida og s her hos os p Amager Bryghus. Siden sit frste besg p bryghuset tilbage i 2011 har Wayne vret lidt af et idol for os. Vi har nemlig svrt ved at forestille os nogen, der er mere dedikeret og kompromisls i sin tilgang til brygning - og det kombineret med gte passion og sans for detaljen. Derfor var det en stor re, at Wayne tog imod vores invitation om at brygge hos os - og det endda p hans fdselsdag! Opskriften blev skabt gennem en endels rkke e-mails. Cigar Citys signatur-ingrediens - cedertret - blev bestilt hjem og en fdselsdagskage blev bagt. Det blev en sjov dag - og vi hber at du vil have det sjovt med at smage denne dobbeltmskede cedertrslagrede peber Imperial Stout - ja intet mindre. Det er lidt af et bst - men et blidt og venligt bst.

English: Who Xiquic was, is a bit hard to explain - but we all know the hero twins: Wayne Wambles and Jacob Storm - headbrewers of Cigar City Brewing in Tampa, FL and Amager Bryghus, Denmark respectively. Since his first visit at Amager back in 2011 Wayne has been quite the idol for us. We dont believe its possible to find anyone with a bigger heart in brewing - combined with the utmost passion and sense for detail. Therefore it was a great honor to us that Wayne accepted our invitation to come brew at Amager Bryghus - even on his birthday! A recipe was created from what seemed like an endless stream of emails. The Cigar City signature cedar wood was ordered and a birthday cake was baked. We had a fun day - we hope youll have fun enjoying this double mash cedar infused black pepper Imperial Stout, yeah, no kiddin. Its a bit of a beast - but a gentle one.

Poured a deep brown with a beige head. Aroma of smokey malt, coffee grinds, dark chocolate. Full body, flavour as the aroma, a bit peppery, some wood. Dry, bitter finish.

I was really excited by this beer becuase I am a big fan of peppered beer. Usually what I look for is something trying to emulate Mexican Chocolate, but this is spiced with black pepper. Pour gives off a great tan head on a black body with the pepper being the first thing to hit your nose. You can definitely taste the Cigar City influence through the cedar wood taste along chocolate, coffee, and licorice but what you get first is the warmth and bite of the pepper. This beer is a success for me, but I dont think Id recommend it without knowing that the person enjoyed a pepper beer.

Bottle at home, 12th January 17. Pours black, perfect tan head. Aroma is black treacle, liquorice, burnt notes, coffee. Taste is peat, wood, barrel, liquorice, coffee, treacle, spice and a little heat from the black pepper, stops this from being too sweet.

PacoRasas (11) - Toledo, SPAIN - NOV 1, 2016
Black-brown with a creamy beige head. The nose holds rich burnt cedar, chocolate. Medium sweet flavor with heavy charred wood, earth, dirt, bitter cocoa. Full bodied with fine carbonation. The oppressive burnt wood character continues into the finish, with further earthy bitterness. Good.

Butelka z datą: 04/2020, batch nr: 993.
WYGLĄD: Barwa czarna, nieprzejrzyste. Piana drobna, średniej wysokości.Pięknie zdobi szkło.
AROMAT: Intensywny. Dominuje lukrecja i nuty leśno-ziołowe. Dopiero w tle wyczuwalne są m.in.: czekolada, karmel oraz kawa.
SMAK: Wytrawne. Ciemne słody, z początku mocno ziołowe z lekkim cytrusowym posmakiem. Końcwka kawowa, długi. Goryczka wysoka, długa. Alkohol świetnie ukryty.
OGLNIE: Nie jest to z pewnością ortodoksyjny RIS, a już na pewno nie każdemu posmakuje. Specyficzne. Mi smakowało.

alteregoo (1234) - POLAND - MAY 20, 2016
Piana obfita, drobna, beżowego koloru, ładnie zdobi szkło. Barwa czarna z brązowymi prześwitami. W aromacie od razu po otwarciu dolatuje do nas potężna czekolada i pikantność pieprzu, ze szkła pieprz wręcz łaskocze w nosie przy wąchaniu, do tego trufle, lukrecja, jakieś taniny (może i cydr)... W smaku płsłodki, czekoladowy, kakaowy, choć szybko kontruje to pikantność podkręcona drobnym, szczypiącym nagazowaniem (mimo, że niskim) i wysoka, palona goryczka, ktra w połączeniu z pieprzem bardzo długo zalega. W posmaku nuty ziemisto mineralne, "tłuste" (jak olej roślinny). Dość treściwe, dość gęste, choć nie oleiste, alkoholu brak.
Dobry RIS, choć dodatek dużej (wydaje mi się) ilości czarnego pieprzu zaburza poprawny odbir trunku, czyniąc go nieco pustym (pikantność pieprzu przykrywa wiele ciekawych smaczkw) i trudnym w piciu.

Butelka 0,5l Kolor ciemny nieprzejrzysty, piana brązowa ładnie się trzyma i osiada na szkle. Aromat sojowy, pikantny, lukrecja i torf,, do wyboru do koloru" Pełny smak solonej wędzonki, trochę czekolady, jałowca? Pełnia smaku i aksamitne odczucie, super imperial stout.
