Danish: Dette er et helt unik blend af to af Danmarks allerbedste imperial stouts. Vi har brygget Mikkeller Beer Geek Brunch Weasel og Amager Bryghus Hr. Frederiksen hver for sig og herefter blendet de to bryg. Dette har givet en meget balanceret, harmonisk og fyldig øl.

This is a blend of Amager Bryghus’ Hr. Frederiksen and Mikkeller’s Beer Geek Brunch Weasel, called "Væsal Brunch Weasel" at ChurchKey. The keg in particular was 30% nitrogenated, as well. 4 oz. served into a tasting snifter. From notes. A: Pours a damned near pitch black color. The head is a gorgeous one finger tan shade with fantastic texturing, fantastic duration, and fantastic lacing. I can only imagine what a full serving would look like - even in this dinky serving, it’s one of the prettiest imperial stouts I’ve ever witnessed. S: There actually isn’t too much on the nose. I note roasted barley, subtle coffee, and cocoa powder in particular. This kind of aroma doesn’t seem to justify an 8 score, but the way it meshes together just boggles the mind. It’s like some warped, insane version of a dry stout brewed by angry Vikings ready to plunder America. T: It opens with some light cocoa powder (as opposed to sweet, fudgy chocolate), transitioning into a coffee midtaste and a soft roasted finish. Where this succeeds isn’t the complexity - it’s in the top-caliber balance between the handful of flavors featured here. As a pure coffee stout, I wouldn’t put in with, say, FBS: this is a different beast entirely, where the coffee quality is a subtle note packed into a big-ass dry stout. M: This one is beautifully dry on the back end. Think Guinness sans any watery notes, and about 2.5 times stronger without really telling the palate that. This and, incidentally enough, the taster of Black Albert I had earlier in the day, are just about the only imperial stouts I could ever call ’refreshing’. O: Holy fuck. This is something I could drink all damn day for the rest of my life. What it lacks slightly in complexity it MORE than makes up for in ease of drinkability. Seriously, this is an amazing blend...if only it weren’t so damn pricey. If only...

Coffee and chocolate aroma. Taste bitter coffee, dark chocolate, high alcohol, sweet finish. One year over time. Great evolution.

Pours dark brown, bit of beige foam. Aroma has coffee, chocolate and roast. Taste is coming from powerful milk chocolate, bit if booze, prickly roast and dark plums. Very juicy actually. Some ashy roast in the finish.

Tap and bottle rating. Full bodied, rich, oily. Never really kicks me in the dick like a world class imp does, but still a wholly satisfying blend of two top class beerus.

3 year aged bottle shared. Thanks Juan! Huge chocolate syrup nose with coffee, bakers chocolate, dark fruit and cherry all present. Insanely complex on the palate with the chocolate just dominating. The booze is there, but not overly so. Nutella on the finish with lots more chocolate. Sweet with some dryness on the finish. Wonderful and enjoyable stuff.

mathieuc (3318) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 1, 2016
Pours a dark brown with a thin beige rim that leaves low lacing. Nose is of coffee, chocolate, smoke and something fresh that I associate with camphor (maybe it is the alcohol?). Taste is of coffee, chocolate, grapes, ash and a lot of booze. Hefty. Body is full and carbonation is low. Just too hot for me. A bit hard to drink and rough. Good but not great.

Bottle (500 ml) shared tasting. Pitch black with a medium beige head, good retention, leaving some lacing. Aroma is of strong coffee, a bit vegetal, bitter chocolate, a bit of ashes and smoke, herbal hops and roast. Taste is sweet with rather strong coffee, vegetal notes, ashes, bitter chocolate, roasted malts and low bitterness. Medium to full body. Medium carbonation. A bit oily. Roasty finish. A bit of ashes in the aftertaste. Good but not great. Lack a bit of both balance and depth.

Pours black into a tulip. Mocha head recedes to hug rim. Milk chocolate and espresso aromas. Thick with dark chocolate, marshmallow and hot espresso front to back. Lasting warm mocha burn.

Pours a deep dark black color with a small reddish brwon head. Aromas of coffee, chocolate, with a hint of hops. Flavor has a lot of big chocolate taste, with some coffee, and I think a touch of smoke. A damn fine stout.
