look: 4.5 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.75

Poured from a bottle into a snifter.

Appearence: Pours a dark rich black with a thin 1/2 finger of dark brown head. Not much lacing and the head recedes quickly into just a few lingering bubbles.

Smell: Fresh roast coffee, dark chocolate, slight chille pepper tinge. Very rich flavor that I could keep smelling for hours.

Taste: Follows the smell, coffee first and then chocolate. Some mollasess and dark fruits with a chilie pepper finish. A little earthy coffee ground flavor also.

Mouthfeel: Rich and creamy, almost like a milk stout. My favorite part of this beer.

Overall: A terrific brew, only wish the pepper was just a little more noticeable. Easily my favorite coffee beer.

Poured from a bottle in line at DLD '13. Thank you, kind sir for being so generous.

Very impressed, roasty aroma, oily and dark, full bodied, creamy mouthfeel. Couldn't stop sipping this. That's all I have to say. Find this, and drink it. Share it. Enjoy it.

Jester King Weasel Rodeo

Pours dark brown into black in a snifter. 1/2 finger beautiful golden tan head that fades into a thin ring on the outside of the glass quickly.

Aromas are of intense dark chocolate, bit of chocolate sweetness, and a hint of smoke and chocolate liqueur and khalua.

Taste- semi sweet chocolate, strong coffee flavor but with a very mild bitterness. Bit of a dark fruit up front. Tiny bit of smokeyness on the finish, probably the chipotle.

Mouthfeel- coats the tongue nicely, it's not thick or viscous by any means but sticky. Little carbonation but not flat, small happy bubbles. The chipotle and alcohol heat sit nicely at the back of the throat.

O- super smooth, chocolatey, coffee without bitterness, and warming. Damn fine beer. Might have to pick another one up.

Buy again.

Pours with little to no head. Not surprising for a 10% RIS. Nose is of strong coffee.. espresso maybe. Very pleasant, I love a solid coffee RIS. When I buy a house I will stop at nothing to have Beer Geek Breakfast on tap in my bar! Very viscous mouthfeel.. hardly any carbonation, is almost slightly slimy.. Upfront taste is roasted malts (duh in a RIS), chocolate and burnt fruits. The coolest thing about this beer is how it takes 15-20 seconds after you swallow to taste the heat. It isnt overpowering or even spicy by any stretch but you get this amazing aftertaste of chipotle peppers. The taste lingers for minutes.. its absolutely awesome. Overall this is one of the most complex beers I have ever had. You are transitioning from a coffee smell to roasted/burnt malts taste to chipotle aftertaste. It is definitely worth the 19$/750ml sticker price

I’ve been saving this one for review #700!

It’s one of those bottles that’s all-too-tasty and has a ton of good memories associated with it.
This pours pitch black with no/low foam. It’s coffee forward, with a strong (weasel poo) coffee aroma. Sharp and acidic, with an intense roasty flavor undercut by the coffee. Similar body to the Whiskey Rodeo. Intense is the key word here—even with some time to mellow out the Vietnamese coffee comes across in its aroma and flavor in a way that’s rewarding but will be off-putting to those who have no interest in either coffee or beers. (Or beer + coffee combinations.) For a 10%+ ABV beer this hides it well.

Can’t wait to saddle up for another go.
