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.

Chocolate and lightly acidic coffee nose, mellowed out with vanilla and oak. I suspect the light acidity and fruitiness is more so from the barrel than the coffee, but it’s a well integrated coffee-driven imperial stout filled with flavour - oak, vanilla, earthy, chocolate like coffee which doesn’t get too roasted or goes over the top. This is the best version of the Beer Geek Brunch Weasel’s I’ve tried, and for some reason it had a better mouthfeel than Islay & Bourbon.

Fat på mikkeller bar. Kolsvart vätska med fint brunt skum. Kaffe, plommon och cognac i doften. Mycket kaffe, lite katrinplommon, med eftersmak av cognac. Gott! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

chimpgibbon (424) - London, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 30, 2015
Keg at Brewdog. Boozy sweet velvet with choco fetishes and possibly the best colour tan head since god knows when. Attack of the prunes. Defended by the cloak of cognac. After this I fear nobody. I mean you really ought to.

Theydon_Bois (12595) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 27, 2015
Keg at BD Camden, 21/03/15. Black topped with a decent dirty tan swirl. Nose is dark fruit rinds, bitter orange, spice, booze fumes - a touch harsh for me, light oak, Cognac tune in, rich chocolate. Taste comprises mellow dark fruits, spice, charr, Rich chocolate orange, raisens, light coffee. Full bodied, fine carbonation, warming booze vein pulses throughout. Ok impy but a touch harsh for me.

Scopey (8824) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 23, 2015
Keg at ND Camden. It pours jet black with a thick tan head. The nose is rich roast, sweet coffee, vanilla, light apple notes, juicy, charred wood, light spice, burnt toffee, nougat and a good hit of chocolate. The taste is rich roast, smooth, bitter-sweet, cocoa, earth, coffee, mild acidity, warming alcohol, wood, charred stuff, medicinal notes, tar and some dried apple with a dry, roasty finish. Full body, fine carbonation and slick mouth-feel. Rich and decadent, yet remains very drinkable. Good stuff.

McNeillR (1679) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 2, 2015
Sticky apple, melted figs and quite hot. Initial taste is brisk coffee or simply up front bitterness. More fig and bit of varnish. Spicier mouthfeel than the others, kicks on a bit. Nice cooling bitterness and sticky sweet linger.
