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. Black, viscous, minimal tan head. Strong coffee on the nose, but it is shortly joined by apricots, black chocolate and a big toffee smell, which lingers on. Just so inviting. Tastes absolutely unbelievable: big whack of smooth toffee, silky milk chocolate and jammy apricots, with aftertastes of lovely nutty coffee. And of every other flavour in it. This beer is so good it makes me a little mental.

Black pour with thin head. Grassy, orange peel, cocoa, charcoal, booze on the nose. Taste is a dry field of grass, cocao, burnt wood, not overly complex and a bit dry for me. Feel was a bit thin for the style but overall decent.

thebeertourist (5025) - Oslo, NORWAY - APR 12, 2015
On tap at Mikkeller Bar Stockholm. Black with a beige head. Complex roasted coffee, oranges, vanilla aromas. Good dry roast balanced by orange zest, vanilla and sweeter chocolate flavours. A great beer.

Nische (1022) - Saltsjö-Boo, SWEDEN - APR 12, 2015
Pitch black with very small brown head. Aroma off roasted malts, coffee, quite boozy, cocoa, some sweetness. Heavy alcohol in taste together with coffee and some soy sauce.

simont1 (361) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - APR 8, 2015
Chocolate and lightly acidic coffee nose, mellowed out with vanilla and oak. I suspect the light acidity and fruitiness is more so from the barrel than the coffee, but it’s a well integrated coffee-driven imperial stout filled with flavour - oak, vanilla, earthy, chocolate like coffee which doesn’t get too roasted or goes over the top. This is the best version of the Beer Geek Brunch Weasel’s I’ve tried, and for some reason it had a better mouthfeel than Islay & Bourbon.

Fat på mikkeller bar. Kolsvart vätska med fint brunt skum. Kaffe, plommon och cognac i doften. Mycket kaffe, lite katrinplommon, med eftersmak av cognac. Gott! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

chimpgibbon (396) - London, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 30, 2015
Keg at Brewdog. Boozy sweet velvet with choco fetishes and possibly the best colour tan head since god knows when. Attack of the prunes. Defended by the cloak of cognac. After this I fear nobody. I mean you really ought to.

Theydon_Bois (11491) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 27, 2015
Keg at BD Camden, 21/03/15. Black topped with a decent dirty tan swirl. Nose is dark fruit rinds, bitter orange, spice, booze fumes - a touch harsh for me, light oak, Cognac tune in, rich chocolate. Taste comprises mellow dark fruits, spice, charr, Rich chocolate orange, raisens, light coffee. Full bodied, fine carbonation, warming booze vein pulses throughout. Ok impy but a touch harsh for me.

Scopey (8328) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 23, 2015
Keg at ND Camden. It pours jet black with a thick tan head. The nose is rich roast, sweet coffee, vanilla, light apple notes, juicy, charred wood, light spice, burnt toffee, nougat and a good hit of chocolate. The taste is rich roast, smooth, bitter-sweet, cocoa, earth, coffee, mild acidity, warming alcohol, wood, charred stuff, medicinal notes, tar and some dried apple with a dry, roasty finish. Full body, fine carbonation and slick mouth-feel. Rich and decadent, yet remains very drinkable. Good stuff.

Leighton (13253) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 21, 2015
Keg at BD Camden - London. Hard roast in the nose, some tar, cocoa, light medicinal notes. Medium to big sweet flavor with rich dark malts, darkr malts, raisins, cherries, earth, burnt grains, baking cocoa. Full bodied with average carbonation. Warming finish with more strong dark malt character, bittersweet baking cocoa, scorched earth, leather, dried dark fruits. Robust and nicely balanced.

Pours crude black with a medium sized brown head which soon disappears. Aroma is coffee, cocoa, peaty whisky. Taste is mild cognac initially followed by cocoa then, some oak, slight liquorice which then leads on to a long coffee finish. Full bodied with a slightly sticky finish.
