Jester King / Mikkeller Weasel Rodeo
Jester King & Mikkeller collaborate to make Weasel Rodeo, an American Double/Imperial Stout. From the bottle: An Imperial Oatmeal Stout brewed with smoked malt, Chipotle peppers and Kopi Luwak coffee. I’m not sure if this was a one time only brewing or if they rotate it in and out of their line-up. Either way I’m glad I was able to trade for one. Looks like I got to this bottle just in time too, it was on the flat side of the carbonation spectrum, but not completely so. The flavor from the chipotle peppers is still pretty kickin’ with some big flavor but not spice heat. The coffee it seems has faded quite a bit though. Behind the specialty ingredients is a solid imperial stout with flavors of roasted malts and some chocolate. Quite impressive overall, even with the lack of bubbles.
