Thanks a ton to standuptj (Reddit) for this interesting beer.

Nice creamy darker head hit 1 finger and leaves nice lacing, pitch black thick color with long legs.

Nose roast, coffee, fresh coffee, black patent, vanilla, chocolate, cocoa, caramel, syrupy malt, hint of peppery aroma.

Taste big malts, little syrupy, caramel, vanilla, cocoa, roasted malt, plenty of roast but not overly burnt, nice back end chipotle heat, some warming and tingly booze, lots of fresh coffee and coffee grounds, gets a little acrid. Some earthy hops and bitterness. Finish is fairly dry, bitter hot from peppers and booze, coffee and cocoa lingering.

Mouth is fuller bodied, some booze and pepper warmth, decent carb.

Overall pretty nice, good dark malts, lots of nice fresh coffee, it does get a bit acrid which keeps it from really getting good, nice chocolate, vanilla, and the nice chipotle pepper adds a nice heat and flavor.

Thanks are owed to canadianghetto for hooking me up with a bottle of this during our recent trade. Consumed this past weekend in a side by side with the 2 other rodeo treatments.

Poured from a 750ml into a Mikkeller teku glass. The brew appears black in color with a rich 3 finger cap of mocha. The head displays solid powers of retention that leaves patches of lace on the glass a it slowly fades. A light swirl revives a thick dark brown finger back to the surface.

The smell is roasty like burnt grain with a solid earthen and barnyard aspect mixed with tobacco, coffee and hints of citrus/minerals. Yeasty phenolics and spice are ever-present and somewhat clashing with the roasted aspect of the grain. Hints of pepper bring out even more focus on minerals. As it warms up, some faint smokey hint emerges.

The taste is bitter roast like char to ashy grain. Some coffee and mineral elements just like the nose suggested. A touch of citrus and slight hop flavoring. The coffee and earthy peppery quality hang around mid-palate before fading into earth and yeasty elements. The warmth of the alcohol mixes well with the peppery spice to tingle the back of the throat. Some comes out as the brew warms up.

This is a medium bodied brew with a modest amount of carbonation. It makes for a lighter feel in the mouth but at times, it displays a smoothness that clings to the mouth like quick-oats. Overall this was a solid integration of flavors and the pepper was not over-done which I liked. I am not completely sold on the whole farmhouse stout but it kinda wasnt bad. If the sulfur and minerals could be removed, id love another go at this.

"According to the brewer, this is an Imperial Oatmeal Stout brewed with smoked malt, chipotle peppers and Vietnamese coffee. This is the second collaboration between the two breweries"

Sampled at the Big Texas Beer Fest.

The beer pours a very dark brown to black color with a large tan head. The aroma is full of heavily roasted malt, chocolate, pepper and a little bit of light smoke. The flavor is very similar. I get a lot of roasted malt and chocolate, with some light coffee and smoke notes. There is also a nice roasted pepper component as well as a little bit of creaminess. Medium to thick mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

A thanks to JLindros to sharing this beer at the Wormtown brewery. Reviewed from notes. Poured into a standard snifter.

A - Pours a nice dark oily brown hue with a one figner khaki head that fades to a thin creamy blanket, leaving behind some slick side lacing. Solid and well done.

S - Nice chipotle notes with some faint coffee. Its a very good balance between light chili heat and coffee/roast malts.

T - Taste is nice chocolate and coffee notes. You have to really hunt for the chipotle as it emerges on the aftertastes. Slightly malty sweet as well. Wish the chili was a bit more forefront.

M - Mouthfeel was smooth and creamy with some faint alcohol present. Again, solid.

O - This was an enjoyable stout from two solid breweries. Glad I've got a bottle of this myself to crack at a later date.
