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.

Finally a bottle I can’t get in my own state. Supplied by Drsilverworm -- thanks! Hadn’t realized the bottle was so small -- 8.5 FL OZ worth of oily black liquid. Its head is an off-khaki shade that only has a rim around the glass in appearnce. No head, laciness however was quite prominent. Smells like Candy corn, applewood smoked bacon, black liquorice, ash, apple cider vinegar, sweet malts and some chocolate. Not noticing too much in regards of the coffee. WHOA... this beer is intense; there’s no getting around it: starts off with a charcoal/dark chocolate bittersweetness which has plenty of booze, oak and pear. By mid-palate it has gotten amazingly smoky with hints of candied apples, caramel, allspice, ginger and London yeast. Ends quite bitter from the hops and dark malts. Coffee only slightly tasted. I like this beer, but I was ultimately unimpressed that the coffee element which is basically the biggest seller to the Weasel series, is hidden amongst a platter of smoke, apples, oak and roast.

Bottle. Pitch black pour, thin tan head. Dark syrupy malts, molasses, dried apples, raisin, licorice, alcohal booziness, and note of vanilla. Thick, full body. Not as smooth as the cognac, this beer has more sharp edges. Pretty good, but to expensive.

Smells of plumbs, raisins, hints of tobacco, ash, tar, earth, caramel, and hints of vanilla. Pitch black, decent legs, ring of iodine head. Tastes of chocolate, raisins, plumb, tar, smoke, vanilla. Mouthfeel is big and syrupy, pretty much as expected. I’m glad it came in such a small bottle. It’s pretty intense. Not really worth the price. Definitely won’t be getting it again

gyllenbock (6484) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - OCT 8, 2012
Sample at SBWF 2012. Black with no head. A great aroma of roasted malt, wood, licorice, alcohol,coffee and something sweet. About the same in the complex taste. Really a great beer to sip. Very long aftertaste with a smooth mouth feel. I liked this a bit more than the Cognac Edition.

Theydon_Bois (14996) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - OCT 5, 2012
Bottle at home (BOE) - 05/10/12. Pours pitch black, dark mahogony brown edges in light, with hardly any head just a few spots on top of the glass and some edgeing. Big boozy nose comprising burnt apples, dark malts, raisens, dates, molasses, licqourice, treacle toffee and a touch more alcohol for good measure. Tastes of sweet caramelised toffee apples, raisen fudge, bitter chocolate, hot toffee sauce, a little earthy woodiness. Full bodied with soft carbonation, smooth drinking, perfectly pitched, great on the palate! Overall - this really worked for me. First sip I wasn’t convinced and whilst decent I was expecting to end up with a rating of 3.6/7, however as it warmed the flavours developed and this proved to be a great Imperial Stout!

callmemickey (3989) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 24, 2012
UPDATED: MAR 1, 2013 Pitch black body. Thin dark brown head, thin skim, next to no lacing. Nose definitely is the sum of its parts: apple brandy, tobacco, roasted malts, chocolate, coffee, espresso. Flavor carries over with similar notes. Full bodied, smooth carbonation, light bitterness in the finish. Silky. Overall, this beer reminded me of a beer version of apple Sheesha--distinctive.

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.
