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.

teorn88 (3599) - London, Greater London, - NOV 11, 2012
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.

kevinator (1379) - The Colony, Texas, USA - JUL 4, 2015
Pretty strong stuff. Color was very black and foreboding. Palate was thick and oily. Aroma was burnt malt, whiskey and oak. Flavors were roasted malt, wood, whiskey and hops for balance. A sipper and not for everyone.

25cl bottle enjoyed @ home. Pours black with a small brown head. Aroma is dark fruits, raisins, coffee, light roasted malt, caramel, apples, calvados. Flavour is sweet and light bitterness. Full bodied, thick texture, soft carbonation. Finish is slightly vinous, fruity and with a boozy kick.

Martinus (3711) - Baarle-Nassau, NETHERLANDS - APR 6, 2015
Pitch black, tan dissipating head. Aroma of roasted malts, vanilla, booze, light apple, calvados, red fruits, cherry, pear, lots of coffee. Creamy, boozy flavour, sweet caramel, smooth mocha, cacao. Quite thick and creamy. Finish coffee, malts, apple, calvados, lingering liquorice. Smooth, drinkable, yet intense. Brilliant!

ej (976) - Hauglandshella, NORWAY - JAN 14, 2015
Bottle shared with BBGTC. Pours a thick black producing a small tanned head. Complex aroma with loads of espresso, wood, leather, ash, alcohol and roasted malts. Taste is sweet with notes of wood, coffee, roasted malts and some warming alcohol. Slick mouthfeel, soft co2 and full bodied.

Svesse (6901) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - JAN 6, 2015
(Bottle, Stockholm Beer Festival, 3 Oct 2014) Black colour with brief head. Malty, roasted nose with notes of coffee, cacao, liquorice, oak wood and mild hints of calvados. Malty, roasted taste with black coffee, liquorice, salmiak, cacao, soy sauce, oak wood and gentle flavours of calvados. Full body, with a touch of sweetness, but actually drier than expected. Generous coffee bitterness. Exceptionally well balanced, with the calvados barrel evident but never becoming too much. Lovely beer!

I’m not entirely sure I prefer the Calvados aging here. Has some light brandy tang. Still lots of roast. Pours black with good head and lacing. Dark chocolate and big coffee. Fairly bitter finish. Bottle pour from Churchkey’s 5th anniversary.

"Another frikkin awesome beer with the weasel poo!!! I’m SO glad they started giving Brunch Weasel (one of my favorites) the various barrel treatments. they aren’t better, per se, than the base, but gives me more reasons to drink this, and they have all been epic so far. i wouldnt have thought apple brandy and imperial coffee stout would be so good together, but i was wrong. sweet, luscious, decadent...just enough roast and bitter to balance. wonderful beer in every way!

Pours black into a tulip. Dark chocolate, pit fruit and espresso aromas. Thick with sweet and tart pit fruit upfront turning to mocha espresso in the lasting fruity hot chocolate finish.
