Beer geeks and rodeos dont often go together, but if ever there were a place where the two would meet, it would be Denmark No one from Jester King has ever been to Denmark, but our friends Mikkel and Thomas tell us the entire country is inhabited by craft beer drinking, spicy food loving Viking cowboys and cowgirls, and we think that sounds awesome. So as they say in Danish, bunden i vejret eller resten i haret, which we believe is pro-nounced Yee-haw! Jester King Craft Brewery is an authentic farm-house brewery in the beautiful Texas Hill Country, on the outskirts of Austin. We brew what we like, drink what we want and offer the rest to those who share our tastes.

Imperial Oatmeal Stout brewed with smoked malt, chipotle peppers and Vietnamese coffee.

In an effort to be honest, will say that was both skeptical of liking this and not so thrilled at shelling out the bucks, Yes, I know I should be thrilled that a local brewery has made some great beers and is making yet another collaboration with the brewer they managed to create a previous beer I really enjoyed - but I am no big stout fan and here in Texas it is already acting like summer has hit the first week of May. I take a sip and immediately note the chipotle at the end of things sliding down my throat. Not bad, not intense, just noticeable. fast forward to halfway into the 750 and it just gets better and better. Alright, yes damn it I am liking this. Not only do I start liking it more and more, but I am regretting that the bottle is disappearing. Some beers past that "I only need three ounces to tell if I like it" do get tiresome after eight, ten twelve ounces. But when you start looking at the bottom of an empty 750 to see where the beer is, you know that it hit the mark.

Backlog, ocena przepisana z untappd, w ramach uzupełniania profilu na ratebeer. Wyśmienita gorzka czekolada, kremowe ciało, chili nieobecne, za to profil kawowy trochę jak w Vietnamese Speedway. Super.

Bottle at Good, Bad, Ugly tasting 2014. Roasty with strong coffee notes in the aroma and flavor. A bit of coffee/roast tartness in the finish. Not bad.

Habanero (4492) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK, DENMARK - OCT 10, 2014
Bottled. Pours pitch blak and a small, creamy and lacing tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, chocolate and coffee. Sweet flavor that ends up more dry, with alcohol, a hint of chili and slightly bitter. Medium to full bodied, oily texture and soft carbonation. An excellent Impy.

TXBadger (2733) - Dallas, Texas, USA - SEP 27, 2014
Reviewed from notes: pours a nice black oil like color with khaki colored head. Cocoa, roasted malt, and coffee on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes with some heat from the peppers, and gives a nice warming sensation.

750 ml bottle poured a clear dark reddish brown with a small lingering tan head. Aromas of roasted malt, bitter chocolate, coffee and chipotles. Palate was medium bodied and smooth. Flavors of bitter chocolate, roastiness, light coffee and light chipotle with a smooth warming lingering chocolate finish.

From a trade with Errl-thanks, Chris! Deep thick black. Lots of coffee on the nose, with some earthy chipotle. Taste is chocolate, light heat, subtle smokiness, coffee and burnt malt finish. Chewy, viscous mouthfeel. About 2 years old? Very good, but didnt quite match up to the Darkness and Huny also tasted that night.

Really good. Nice blend of spice, roasted malt and coffee aromas. Intensely dark with a dark brown head that left nice lacing. Full weighty palate that had a slightly oily sense. Carbonation was at a good level and not distracting. Flavors blended well. You could tell this was a Mikkeller recipe with a Jester King spin. Good coffee, roasted barley, and some chocolate with a spicy finish. Just superb.
