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. Lagret på cognac tønder.

English: The recipe for this beer is as simple as a child’s finger painting: you take one of the world’s highest rated beers – that’s the one called Brunch – and then you let it splash about in a totally fresh cognac barrel for three months. After that it’s a question of out of the barrel, into a bottle and off you go.

Bottle. Pitch black with a quickly fading dark brown bubbly head. Aroma is of dark chocolate, rich bitter coffee, dark fruits, hint of liquorice, slight booziness, reminds me of liqueur chocolates. Taste is of coffee, blackcurrant, raisins, chocolate, liquorice, molasses. Sticky heavy oily mouthfeel, medium carbonation.

Pours oily black, slightly haze, with foamy brown head. Visually low carbonation. Aroma: rich dark and roasted malt aroma, with notes of coffee, dark chocolate, cacao powder and nibs, roasted coffee nibs, supported with notes of molasses, vanilla, oak and cognac. Flavor: Rich roadted coffee and dark malts flavors, which also takes on coffee, dark chocolate, are supported with flavor of Cognac, vanilla, cinnamon, hint of licorice, oak. In the background are hop notes, which takes of dark fruits. Taste is sweet, with evident alcohol presence, and dry, slightly bitter finish. Body is full, texture soft, carbonation low. The normal, non barrel aged version is still the best one for me.

Rask0lnikov (431) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAR 1, 2016
330 ml bottle with new design. Pitch black liquid with medium brown head. Rich, powerful aroma. Berries, raisins, cognac and of course really powerful aroma of coffee beans. Thick, silky mouthfeel. Coffee, berries, cognac at first. Dark bread, raisins and burnt coffee beans and sourness in the middle. Hints of berries and sourness of coffee beans in the end. Nice cognac in the aftertaste. Really heavy bodied, thick, low carbonated, cosmic beer. Very well balanced. Giant!

jinroh (1022) - ESTONIA - FEB 23, 2016
Bottle from my European Secret Santa rouhlas. Pours dark mahogany, almost black. Just a bit of foam, does not last. Aroma is thick and fulfilling. Has some dark fruits, plums soaked in cognac, some oak is there and also bit of subdued coffee is coming-out from the end. When I swirl the beer in the glass, it sort of sticks on the glass, high viscosity. Taste is smooth, thick and velvety. Then comes the booze. Warming, has some bitter chocolate, coffee and cocoa dust. Lots of flavours and leaves some lingering bitterness and liquorice linger in the finish. Good stuff, I am glad I could share this one with my relative, luring her into the world of beer, one full bottle just for me would have been way too much.

Il est rare que je me permette ce genre de dégustation mais en ce dernier jour de vacances des Fêtes 2015, je me résous à suivre à la lettre les instructions écrites sur l’étiquette: je bois cette bière au déjeuner. Mon étrange sentiment de plaisante culpabilité est tout aussi grand que le bonheur que me procure cette bière matinale qui est la suite parfaitement logique au café que je buvais en regardant par la fenêtre Mademoiselle Irina s’éloigner vers son travail. Le liquide tombe lourdement dans mon ballon pendant que j’enfile mes gros bas de laine style chalet canadien. Le liquide parvient à lui seul à assombrir la pièce dans laquelle pénètre de chauds et lumineux rayons de soleil. La mousse brune et généreuse ne tient qu’un instant, mais je ne lui en veux pas. Ce moment est exquis et aucune place à la déception. Je fais tournoyer le liquide dans mon verre. Une prémousse riche et onctueuse me rappelle que je me gâte comme jamais je n’ose le faire et pendant de longues minutes, je respire les vapeurs chaudes de ce plaisir coupable sans même approcher le verre de mon nez. La pièce est emplie de cet arôme de réglisse noire brûlée, de malts noircis et croustillants qu’il n’est pas rare de retrouver dans les stouts impériaux Danois ainsi que de chocolat. C’est riche, cochon... vacancier! Magnifique équilibre en bouche entre l’alcool et la torréfaction. Le vieillissement en barrique de Cognac est présent mais n’amincit pas trop le liquide qui conserve un corps très appréciable. Une texture sirupeuse, des malts riches auxquels je me soumets le sourire aux lèvres, un goût complexe de cette barrique bi-centenaire... Longue, sirupeuse, douce et ferme, cette bière semble même appréciée de mes Chats avec qui je partage ce moment privilégié.

Bottle. Really black in color with a beige head. A good set of chocolate and wooden cognac in aroma. Simple, but oh so good. Licorice vinous notes too. Coffee and chocolate with some cognac meets again in taste. The drinkability is really good here as well. Soft mouthfeel. Some sweetness and even late fruityness is found, but fortunately the bitterness is on a sufficient level and hence it makes the bottle to empty too soon. On the verge being too smooth though. But then again that’s a good thing alright. Everybody ready for a blackout.
