A- Dark with a thick latte-coloured head when poured roughly into goblet. Head is foamy and leaves heavy lacing. Light does not permeate when beer is held to light.

S- Bitter hops and coffee. Roasted, very dark malt, a light pepper scent (nasal burn?).

T- Coffee and roasted malt upfront, with peppery (the spicy vegetable kind) flavor and aftertaste.

M- Light to medium-bodied for style, smooth and creamy. The light burn of the pepper lingers well after swallowing.

O- Fantastic. Definitely my favorite Jester King so far. The local wild yeast is indiscernible to me and every note hits.

expectedly so rather excellent. funny that milkeller makes it to dallas. and the only two i've ever had were chipotle dark american porter or double porter. big creamy beer and should be shared in the summer. wonderful feel for something that has such a warmth to it body of fluff. nose of coffee, roasted or smoked malt, and the standard well formed american double. palate was not as 'warm' as i would have expected but still quite nice. there is evidence of every ingredient stated. i don't know many coffees from vietnam that are renown beside the weasel coffee. would go as far to say that was what was used. i do on the other hand think that anyone that like the beer geek stout collection should try this one. the warmth in most in the dregs. not something i would deem a drinkable in texas when its 110 out but nice to see it come around.

750ml bottle. No date, but this was just released Spring '12. Poured this one into my Victory Golden Monkey tulip.

A: Pours a deep, dark, black color. Two fingers of dark mocha, tan head. Tight bubbled bottle conditioned head. It is leaving some nice lacing. And there is definitely some alcohol feet in there. Pretty looking beer.

S: Dark roast coffee. Dark chocolate. Some smokiness. But really getting a lot of that coffee.

T: Bitterness from the coffee on the from of the tongue. Really sharp bite. Mid mouth is the spicey bitter notes from the chipotle peppers. There is some creamy notes. Then spice. A touch of heat. Finish is loud and aggressive. Sticks with you.

M: Full bodied.

750 bottle poured into a a tulip.

Oh yeah this thing is a beaut. It pours thick and black as night. Even though it is such a big beer it produces quite the lovely big fluffy straight up brown head.

Coffee this first along with some chocolate and a little bit of roast and pepper.

Lots of coffee and chocolate dominating the flavor. I must say I’m not getting much heat at all after sipping on this. There is a slight tingle on the tongue. The Texas Ranger was a little much on the pepper, and this a little light. I would like just a notch above this. Subtle seems to be the name of the game here in the flavor and nose which is kinda disappointing.

It hits that full body and just coats the mouth and goes down smoothly. *cue Borat voice* Very nice!

This was a very drinkable stout. The pepper doesn’t get out of control and detracting. It looks and feels great. The flavor and aroma are nice but nothing really pops out in this beer. It was hard deciding between 3.5 and 4 on the taste. The pleasantness ruled out and I think I gotta go 4. Tasty sh*t!

There needs to be a third JK/Mikkeller collab!
