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”).

Pours a dark black hue with a creamy three finger head and lacing everywhere what a looker, the smell is strong whiskey with dark chocolate and smokey oak, the feel is full bodied lush with moderate carbonation and the taste is started off with a little whiskey then the big imp stout takes over its dark chocolate, coffee and finished with a smokey oakiness and overall wow what a top drop cheers.

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.
