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.

Fantastic beer...with a cool story. Love the civet coffee inclusion. Poured thick, syrupy, and black. The aroma provided plenty of coffee and a warmness from the calvados barrel aging. Tasted had a wonderful smoky feel, the subtle and interesting coffee was there, and the booze presence was perfect. You could get vanilla and chocolate. Big tastes, but nice. It was definitely a thick beer, and I think a small bottle is more than enough to drink in a setting. Real pricey, but a fun and worthwhile beer to try.

Bottle from Beers Of Europe (I think). The pour’s a deep obsidian black with a luxuriously creamy deep tan head that slowly fades. Attractive beer. The nose is big sweet apple, some boozy wood, vanilla and caramel Hot rum raisin and anise. Very sweet. I’m getting a sugar high just smelling this beer. The taste is deep charred coffee beans, plenty of roasted bitter chocolate. Strong peppery wood body. Big espresso. Sweet burned brown sugar and condensed milk come through on the long, lightly dry finish. Hints of green apple and umami. Mild soy sauce, but not overpowering. Full body, but not overly boozy or particularly viscous. This is actually quite drinkable. Overall, strange beer! A bit of Jekyll and Hyde. The aroma suggested a syrupy sweetness that didn’t materialize in the coffee-dominated taste. Pretty good.

0.25 l bottle. Black color. Aromas of coffee, pungent oak, vanilla, salty licorice, raisins and booze. Roasty flavor with salty licorice, oak, herbal bitter tonic and burning alcohol. Initially sweet with dryer bitter, oaky and coffeish finish. Full body. Strong pungent taste. Quite oaky and burning, but still retains some interest and drinkability.

250ml brown bottle at Wunderbar. Black pour, small brown head. Aroma is fruity, apple note, thick roast, chocolate. Rich taste, big liquid chocolate, roast, ends with some alcohol and big chocolate and roast. Silky body, smooth, mild carbonation. Solid beer.

ReggieDunlap (3005) - The dub c, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 11, 2012
Pours black with a thin mocha head. Aroma has definite tequila...still a stout beneath it but very notable tequila...not boozy though. Flavor is roasty with some coffee but dominated by tequila. Mouthfeel is medium with a roasty tequila finish.

Aroma- scotch, char, acidity, oak, booze Appearance- pitch black with a mocha head Taste- metallic astringency, big barrel qualities, tobacco, char, syrupy sweetness Palate- full-bodied, chewy Overall- Could have and should have been better. Without the metallic notes on the back part of the palate this would have easily jumped to a 3.8 or 3.9. Price was insane as well.

Bottle. Pours black, thick, with minimal head. Nose has coffee, dark choxolate, soy sauce, some bbq, melasses and a bit of sweetness. Body is thick, full. Licorice, sweet, some anis, jasmin. Really good imperial!

Had this side by side with the cognac bottle. Both poured the same: near black, viscous, with a medium brown head. Both had dense aroma nd flavour profiles, lots of heart roast, bitter chocolate, licorice. Of the two, this was distinctly more ashy, leathery, and less sweet. A beautiful imperial stout, but I enjoyed the cognac bottle better.
