750 ml bottle into the trusty and eponymous Jester King snifter. Black with a tan, fine head. Smells of whiskey, plum, well-roasted coffee, smoked barley, cinnamon, salted caramel. Taste is quite robust. The coffee is more prevalent than others note, but it’s back seat to the whiskey, dark chocolate, sweet and spicy pepper, fig, light floral hops. The chipotle heat has accumulated by the end of the first 3 oz. Barrel treatment has done great things for an already great beer. Best Jester King effort yet!
No head. Thick like used motor oil. Smooth. Mild coffee. Mexican chocolate. Chipotle is a nice touch. skortila (5950) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - NOV 27, 2016
On tap. Old note. The aroma has bit coffee, chocolate. Black coloured beer with a thin, off-white/beige head. The taste is moderate bitter with coffee roast, pepper, cookie, bit chocolate. Full and thick/sticky mouthfeel. Nice. Klimaet (2878) - Aarhus N, DENMARK - JUL 18, 2016
Bottle. Pours pitch black with a small brown head. Aromas of coffee, dust, light oxidization, dark fruits, chocolate. Taste is dusty, malty, dark fruits, slight oxidization, coffee. Cybercat (5959) - Georgia, USA - MAR 20, 2016
Pours coffee sable, not much head. Aroma delivers strong molasses, roast malt and licorice tones with a hint of mocha. Sharp flavor features coffee, roast malt, chocolate, molasses, and subtle licorice and peppery notes. Mouthfeel presents decent body and OK fizz. So, how do weasels have a rodeo? bytemesis (8768) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - JAN 17, 2016
Bottle. Pours opaque black, medium creamy brown head, good lacing. Aroma is coffee, mocha, licorice. Flavor is light plus sweet, medium bitter, coffee and cocoa, hints of charred wood, anise. Lingering bitterness, as well as a touch of chili heat that comes on late and lingered to the far finish. Full body, creamy mouthfeel. Pretty solid effort.

Wow! Damn near a 50 point beer. Aroma of roasted malts, sweet chocolate, dark dried fruits, cherries, light spice and coffee. Taste is a nice mix of roasted coffee, sweet chocolate, vegetal peppers, light sourness/spiciness and a good well balanced bitterness into the finish... Absolutely one of the best beers I’ve had 5o date as the slick mouthfeel on this beer makes it unreal! llkc (2582) - århus, DENMARK - MAY 10, 2015
