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.

250ml bottle pours black in color with a vigourously poured finger of light brown head that settles to leaves a few spots of lacing on the glass. Aroma is roasted grains with chocolate and coffee with alcohol. Taste is roasted grain and coffee bitterness balanced nicely with a chocolate malt sweetness. Medium to heavy bodied with some mild carbonation which leaves a pleasing sensation on the palate. Another oustanding offering from Mikkeller that is very tasty and highly recommended.

hopscotch (10557) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - AUG 6, 2012
Bottle... This beer rocks!... Pours black as tar with a tiny, creamy, brown head. The bouquet provides heaps of rich, dark fudge, toasted nuts, graham cracker and a whisper of vanilla. Full-bodied, thick and chewy with tickling carbonation. The flavor is big, bold, boozy, acrid and burnt. There’s a trace of vinous Cognac sweetness here as well. Finishes acrid and mildly bitter with a hint of acidity. Thanks go out to Plovmand for providing this world class bottle of excellence!

Thanks to cards04 for this! Vibrant aroma of chocolate, cherries, mocha. Pours think and syrupy with little head. Black in colour with faint brown head, almost non-existent carbonation. Taste is coffee, chocolate, fruit, cookie dough, a bit of booze. Tasty!

Great beer full of personality. Served to my non beer loving friend and it went over very well. Deep dark black pour and boozy coffee aroma. Outstanding flavors like any Mikkeller stout.

jstraw (1960) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 28, 2012
Black with fair, creamy, brown head / Deep, rich nose of molasses, coffee, chocolate, caramel, and grass / Full body, dense and inky, hint of sweetness but mostly dry, with excellent balance and bitter finish / Clean flavors of dark roast coffee, bittersweet chocolate, plum, date, caramel, grass, and wood / Well made, but what I feel is another example of Europe’s preference for cooked flavors. But I nitpick.

Rating 4500. Bottle. Black with a thin brown creamy head. Floral cognac chocolate amber coffee and citrus aroma. Bitter earthy chocolate orange and cognac grand marnier like flavors with subtle coffee and an acidic dry alcoholic finish. Really amazing brew.

Lil’ feller from Ridgewood Wine & Beer, Raleigh. Thick black pour with very low carbonation and a visibly oily consistency to it - quite different than base Weaz overall. Nose retains many of the chocolate and coffee characteristics, but a sharp indistinct booze wafts from it and occludes much else. Sharp and hot to taste, and this combines with the oily mouthfeel to underwhelm a bit. Flavors are a bit too boozy overall, and the beer would benefit from a far more subtle cognac presence (though I get it, it’s not the subtlest booze around anyways). Finishes a bit spoiled and ashy, though it does have its moments. And damn pricy.
