Notes/Commercial Description:
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”).

This beer has a beautiful amount of complexity with its ingredients coming out.

The beer has a medium minus spiciness from the peppers. There is a pop of whiskey barrel, which is clearly unlike the smooth qualities of bourbon barrels. Then from mid palate on, there is a big roasted coffee flavor that is familiar of Kopi from Kopi speedway.

The beer is medium plus to full.

An interesting and fun brew.

Bottle opened on 1.3.14

A - Pours a very dark brown with a huge active head that fades quickly.

S - Coffee hits first, then chilies, then finally some bourbon.

T - Taste follows the nose, except more bourbon and chilie heat in the finish.

D - Good carbonationn with a medium to light body.

O - Not sure if the bourbon helped this one. Still a good beer.
