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.

Bottle. Black with a creamy light brown head. Sweet chocolate and smooth coffee aroma and taste with orange apple and brandy notes. Nice creamy palate. Very good.

Yea, it’s black. Has very dark spots on a swirl. Man, that’s some crazy aroma! Ash, ultra dark choco, strong coffee (but not the big aroma here), iodine, licorice, choco milk, faint cherry. There is some barrel here but I couldn’t tell u it’s calvados - and I love calvados. The aroma comes in at different strengths and seems to change at will - cool. The taste is better than the aroma which is a rare thing with me. Oily goodness, burnt everything, charred logs, iodine, cherry and alcohol when I want it, cigar sweetness, coffee intensity and harshness, wood maybe, oats, I can only find the malt softness when I breathe into my hand or the lungs of a shrew. Oily, ashy, choco coffo chewo burnto, long finish. Hell of a beer - intense to a point of being almost too intense - minus the alcohol and bitter intensity that usually does one in.

Pours black with a thin head. Aroma is very nice. I get a lot of berrel out of this one. Smells amazing. Tastes amazing. The barrel, the calvados, the coffee, the chocolate. This is fucking amazing an amazing an amazing beer.

Savvy1982 (1705) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 8, 2012
Bottle - from my Minneapolis Town Hall glass. Pours deep, viscous, opaque black. No head, no lacing... I’m guessing that the carbonation here is going to be soft... Nose is very sweet, big coffee, big sweet roast, lots of cigar ash, big black licorice, some hints of barrel, but only when I look for it. Was hoping for more of a Calvados note here. Flavours of ink, graphite, tar, smoke, very bitter coffee, black licorice, very gently carbonated as suspected, again, the barrel is just a suggestion of brandy and vanilla in the finish.

reebtogi (3833) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 7, 2012
250ml bottle pours black in color with a half finger of light brown head that leaves only a small trace of lacing on the glass. Aroma is roasted grains and chocolate with hints of coffee and alcohol. Taste is roasted barley and coffee bitterness well balanced with a chocolate malty sweetness and hints of brandy in the finish. Medium to heavy body with mild carbonation. Very similar to the regular brunch weasel, but the Calvados edition does have a taste of its own and is quite tasty.

magsinva (846) - Virginia, USA - AUG 4, 2012
Bottle from Bruisin ales - pours a deep brown with a thin head. Aroma is meaty, brown sugar, and oatmeal, which totally reminds me of breakfast. That said, I found the spicy alcohol too present when I drank it. Very good, but not my favorite Mikkeller.

bytemesis (2587) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - JUL 29, 2012
Bottle. Pours clear deep black, with a very small brown head that dissipates fairly quickly with some lacing. Aroma is strong with notes of roasted malt, coffee, chocolate, and wine. Taste is very strong roasted malt and wine, notes of coffee and chocolate but less strong than in the cognac edition. The calvados barrels have clearly made a significant impact on this beer. Finish is warming from the alcohol and minorly bitter from the coffee notes.

JaBier (4532) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - JUL 29, 2012
Bottled shared with Aledude for his birthday celebration. Pitch black pour with a medium tan to light brown head. Boozy nose with slight apple notes and a lot of coffee and chocolate. Chocolate and malt flavor with apple and booze before a roasty coffee finish. Really good stuff.

barn0216 (359) - California, USA - JUL 29, 2012
UPDATED: OCT 3, 2012 Pitch black, little foam, but what is there clings to the glass. Heavily influenced by the Calvados aging relative to the regular bottling. That and chocolate in the nose. Taste is still a sharp coffee stout but overlaid with wine-y tones. The Calvados seems to muddle the brew in my opinion.

Bottle at home. Pours black with a ring beige head. Aroma of chocolate, coffee, roasted malt, fudge and a little dark fruit. Flavour is medium to heavy sweet, medium bitter, big alcohol warmth in the finish a along with spice. Full bodied with soft to moderate carbonation.
