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.

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.

Bottle shared at my "Massive Mikkeller" tasting. Had a few of these Brunch Weasels aged in different barrels and this was very similar to them. Extremely dark and thick, oily with hints of chocolate, booze, soy sauce and malts. I just hope everyone got to try it, since it’s such a small bottle.

Pitch black with light brown head. The alcohol dominates the smell at first, but is surprisingly absent when tasting it. Taste is slightly burned but still quite lovely. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Incredible as it pours out of the bottle - its so thick and oily. Stong alcohol taste of calvados. The coffee is there, but the calvados is the star of the show. Fantastic beer.

(Bottle, 0.25 l, from Drink Shop, Tallinn, 20121017) The beer poured black and oily. Its head was small and lightly brown. Aroma had roasted malts, coffee, wood and for a very short time at the beginning: apples. Palate was full bodied, warming and quite dry with surprisingly high carbonation. Flavours were coffee, roasted malts, chocolate, wood, sourness and bitterness. Aftertaste had burntness, coffee, apples and bitterness. Not as good as the fresh version but the barrel effects were mild enough not to be too disturbing.

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.
