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.

Nice one, the calvados adds of course apple brand flavor but also helps accentuate the smokiness.

Pours like engine oil. Really dark notes - very roasted malt, coffee, ash, charcoal - very bitter and smooth, and the calvados comes through as well. Great beer.

Pours like light crude. Minimal tan head and heaving dark body. Big stinky chocolate roast nose with some nice interplay with the calvados.Far sweeter than I remember the original being - Heaps of cocoa, vanilla, a hint of roast and the calvados isn’t actually too strong. Well managed and luxuriously big in a ll areas. Not particularly complex, but a lovely fireside beer.

Countbeer (4425) - Best of E-Town mit ein Brauhaus, NETHERLANDS - NOV 25, 2012
Bottle: A pitch black pour, a pitch black beer in the glass with a medium sized airy but vast brown head. Looks good. Smell ash, coal, deep deep dark chocolate, soya, tar, dark smoke, slight hint of dark coffee, boozy/liquor, some burned oak and burned spices. Taste is really dark: tar, very bitter, uber roast, deep dark roasted burned wood, deep deep dark chocolate, burned roasted barley malts, roasted oatmeal, lots of (roasted) spices, a hint of something apple ish, loads of dark burned roast, liquor/alcoholic/booze, something like coffee roast, applewood, hint of chalk, dusty burned wood notes and liquid burned coal. Aftertaste is bitter, deep roast, grass, dry bitter, chalk, dry wood, warmth, coffee, liquorice notes and some weird roasted herbs. Low carbo, soft mouthfeel, full body and an oily texture. Too much dark ingredients which causes some ingredients to be a bit out of tune. Expensive bottle of beer with a decent beer inside... Unfortunately one of the lesser/stranger barrel aged imperial stouts. Still not bad! It’s complex, but does complexity need to raise it a point?

Bottle. Silky black pour with a thin sheet of tan foam. Aroma is balanced sweet brandy and roast, coffee, chocolate qualities from the base beer. Taste is brandy up front followed by chocolate, oatmeal, coffee, roast, char, and some alcohol notes through the finish. Smooth, silky mouthfeel. I like this beer although I do not believe that either this or the other barrel aged variant I’ve tried are actually better than the original base beer.

Cirrhosis (1208) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 19, 2012
Dark coffee brown with a small bubble ring floating around the edge of the glass. Coffee aroma with a dark chocolate backbone, sweet and desert like. yum, yum, yum. Mild hints of alcohol in the nose. Why is every thing Mikkeller make so @#%$# EPIC! Deep malty brew with massive coffee, and a bakers chocolate finish. Smokey and crisp, complete with mild hints of raspberry. The unmistakable taste of cigarette ash shows up in the flavor. Drink all things Mikkeller!!

25cl bottle at CPK, London. 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.

250mL bottle, sent from Glouglouburp (thanks Dany), pours jet black with a small light brown head. Nose is full of sherry liqueur, deep roasted malt, some sweetness from the liqueur, wood and some feint coffee still detectable. Flavour is quite complex and well-refined by the barrels, with lots of woody notes more so than the actual sherry, the coffee is very much repressed but still barely present, some charcoal notes, chalk and burnt wood. The charcoal / chalky elements are a bit bothersome, and seem unintended. Mouthfeel is dry, roasty, chalky and a bit alcoholic. Likely my least favourite BA version of the Brunch Weasels, but still quite solid.
