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.

Foffern (1065) - Bodø, NORWAY - MAY 22, 2013
Bottle shared with (and great courtesy of) the Bergen tasting crew. Has a deep reddish brown colour with no head. Sweet aroma of liqour, caramel, brown sugar, coffee, alcohol, oak and cocoa. Powerful flavour with warming alcohol and more touch from the barrel aging. Complex and nice. Has a silky and rich mouth feel, and a medium bitterness. Powerful, well-balanced and nice.

UPDATED: FEB 23, 2014 11.05.2013, 0,25l bottle sampled @ BBGTC moving-home-tasting for Floffern:
Small shortlasting head. Aroma is slightly dry, wood, cocoa, alcohol, grass, coffee, dark sugar. Taste is medium rich and dry, sour coffee, wood, cocoa, alcohol, grass, dark sugar. Dry long lasting finish and bitterness. Not a favourite.

ClubGonzo (3512) - Bergen, NORWAY - MAY 11, 2013
Bottle, shared with Foffern and Inbreak at Foffern’s going-away tasting. Pours a jet black body with a miniscule beige head. Nose is wood, licorice, espresso, calvados, grape peel, hints of burnt sugar and caramel. Subtle calvados tones which work very nice. Taste is licorice, espresso, wood, dry charcoal, calvados and hints of dark chocolate and burnt sugar. Full body, soft carbonation. Elegant and subtle in its makeup, this is a tasty understatement.

Marheb (1749) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 29, 2013
Un nez puissant de tannins et d’ethanol dans un marécage chocolaté. Le calvados est vraiment envahissant au début et ne réussi jamais à balancer le poids des sucres. Bon mais à court de l’excellence.

BeerBeCue (91) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 28, 2013
1-year aged 8.5 OZ bottle poured into small snifter. It pours deep, deep deeeeep opaque black, with a small ring of foam. This one is so deeply black you can’t even perceive a hint of light through the glass...in this was tested in direct afternoon sunlight! Aroma is of coffee, dark chocolate, calvados (duh) and is quite woody. It’s also quite boozy but it isn’t a fault in this case, in fact, it blends well (and we have to remember it’s 10.9% abv anyways)! Taste is uhm...bittersweet let’s say? The bitterness has a lot to do with the woody aspect of this brew. Body is full, with an oily texture - really, really nice. Carbonation is practically nonexistent. Finish is long. Very long! Overall? Wow. This is a very well done barrel-aged brew. Every aspect - aroma, taste, texture seems to fall into place perfectly. Highly recommended.

banii (231) - Trondheim, NORWAY - APR 1, 2013
Bottle. Dark, oily, almost lumpy. Aroma of roasted coffee, coco and mild oak. Powerful taste of coffee, dark chocolate, wood, and some calvados - taste lasts forever. Great stuff.

jbeatty (947) - New York, USA - MAR 24, 2013
Bottle, 03/24/2013. Pours dark brown, nearly black, medium creamy dark tan head, settles in a few minutes, fine lacing rings the glass. Aroma is round, rich coffee and chocolate with smooth roast background, very dark, raisin and sweeter fruity barrel notes. Taste begins with fruity calvados notes, boozy apple highlights coming in, then changes completely, expanding to intense char roast, espresso grounds, cacao nuts and dark chocolate, long bitter finish. Thick, creamy palate. Wow, nice and quite complex.

JStax (2601) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - MAR 23, 2013
Poured from an 8.5 ounce bottle. Pours a fairly dark brown to black with a thin khaki colored head of foam. Decent retention. The aroma has some wood, coffee, roasty malt, maybe some vanilla bean influence. Almost a cinnamon spiced apple. Taste is a lot more wood and barrel heat than the original version. The original wasn’t barreled either, though. I get the spicy apple notes from the calvados, but still get a nice leathery, roasty coffee presence throughout, it’s just a lot more subdued than what the original had to offer. You really have to concentrate to get the barrel notes in the aroma, but in the taste, they’re front and center. Nice beer and variant, but I believe I prefer the original version.

Plovmand (6176) - Helsinge, DENMARK - MAR 21, 2013
Bottle at home. It pours jet black with a creamy steady mokka coloured head. The aroma is coffee, sweet roasted malt, oak, dark fruit, light tar and chocolate. The flavour is a great mix of roasted malt, calvados, oak, coffee and liquorice. The calvados barrel takes some of the complexity from the original beer which is not to the better and I still like the original better than any of the barreled versions. This is great though.
