COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Danish: Denne imperial oatmeal stout er brygget med den vietnamesiske kaffesort Ca Pe Chon, som er en af verdens dyreste kaffesorter. Ca Pe Chon kaffen er lavet af afføringen fra væseldyr. De sydøstasiatiske dyr spiser kun de bedste og mest modne kaffebønner. Enzymer i deres fordøjelsessystem hjælper til at nedbryde bønnerne. Herefter indsamles afføringen som indeholder de hele bønner og bruges til væselkaffen. Kaffen har en kraftig smag og en endnu kraftigere aroma. Nogle mener endda, at kaffen øger sexlysten!
En Imperial Oatmeal Stout brygget på: Vand, malt, humle, gær og vietnamesisk ca phe chon kaffe. Lagret på cognac tønder.

English: The recipe for this beer is as simple as a child’s finger painting: you take one of the world’s highest rated beers – that’s the one called Brunch – and then you let it splash about in a totally fresh cognac barrel for three months. After that it’s a question of out of the barrel, into a bottle and off you go.

Bottle from Dan - danke! Pours a pitch black, with the classic BGB brown head, looks great. Aroma is chocolate, coffee, cognac, vinous pear/apple. Taste is great, too: malty chocolate, coffee, a bit of vanilla, cognac (which bites at the very end), vinous fruits, faro fruits. Medium-full before. It lacks the distinctive kopi luwak quality of standard Weasel, and as such I prefer that beer, but its still wonderfully complex, rich and delicious. Another winner from Mikkeller. Ya beaut’.

Oh boy here we go! Aroma is full of vanilla,dark fruits,coffee,roasted malts and chocolate. Color is deep black with no foam. Taste is what blew me away. Tons of vanilla sweetness is countered by bitter counter with just tons and tons of coffee and chocolate.Full bodied,oily Imperial Stout with no carbonation with long finish and coffee aftertaste. Well hidden alcohol with 10.9% ABV is really something. Mikkeller your beer is outstanding!

Savagesteeler (133) - Warszaw, POLAND - APR 29, 2016
Aromat powala. Cudowna beczka, drewno, nuty koniaku, w tle gorzka czekolada, lekka wanilina. W smaku idealny balans pomiędzy beczką, drewnem, a slodyczą, palonsoscia, lekko kwaskową Szlachetną kawą. Gęste, pełne, czarne z brązowa drobnopecherzykową pianą. Swietne

Bottle. Pitch black with a quickly fading dark brown bubbly head. Aroma is of dark chocolate, rich bitter coffee, dark fruits, hint of liquorice, slight booziness, reminds me of liqueur chocolates. Taste is of coffee, blackcurrant, raisins, chocolate, liquorice, molasses. Sticky heavy oily mouthfeel, medium carbonation.

Pours oily black, slightly haze, with foamy brown head. Visually low carbonation. Aroma: rich dark and roasted malt aroma, with notes of coffee, dark chocolate, cacao powder and nibs, roasted coffee nibs, supported with notes of molasses, vanilla, oak and cognac. Flavor: Rich roadted coffee and dark malts flavors, which also takes on coffee, dark chocolate, are supported with flavor of Cognac, vanilla, cinnamon, hint of licorice, oak. In the background are hop notes, which takes of dark fruits. Taste is sweet, with evident alcohol presence, and dry, slightly bitter finish. Body is full, texture soft, carbonation low. The normal, non barrel aged version is still the best one for me.

Rask0lnikov (627) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAR 1, 2016
330 ml bottle with new design. Pitch black liquid with medium brown head. Rich, powerful aroma. Berries, raisins, cognac and of course really powerful aroma of coffee beans. Thick, silky mouthfeel. Coffee, berries, cognac at first. Dark bread, raisins and burnt coffee beans and sourness in the middle. Hints of berries and sourness of coffee beans in the end. Nice cognac in the aftertaste. Really heavy bodied, thick, low carbonated, cosmic beer. Very well balanced. Giant!

jinroh (1102) - ESTONIA - FEB 23, 2016
Bottle from my European Secret Santa rouhlas. Pours dark mahogany, almost black. Just a bit of foam, does not last. Aroma is thick and fulfilling. Has some dark fruits, plums soaked in cognac, some oak is there and also bit of subdued coffee is coming-out from the end. When I swirl the beer in the glass, it sort of sticks on the glass, high viscosity. Taste is smooth, thick and velvety. Then comes the booze. Warming, has some bitter chocolate, coffee and cocoa dust. Lots of flavours and leaves some lingering bitterness and liquorice linger in the finish. Good stuff, I am glad I could share this one with my relative, luring her into the world of beer, one full bottle just for me would have been way too much.
