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.

19-APR-2012, bottle @ and from Sonni. Black with lasting brown head. Cognac nose with brown sugar and toast. Perhaps not the most complex of stouts, but just so smooth and tasty. Almost as good as the original.

UPDATED: APR 19, 2012 A - pours thick pitch black. Thick and syrupy with no head. S - strong aromas of cognac/port first and foremost. Notes of coffee, deep dark chocolate, molasses. Hints of M - strong bodied very oaky/smokey coffee stout. T - strong dark coffee and sweet cognac up front. Coffee, dark chocolate, oak on the palate. Lingering smokey, sweet dark malts. Hint of bacon. O - good strong imperial stout. Cognac version is not as good as regular. 8-

Obsidian, doesn’t even want to give me a head. Pretty nice aroma, has the full richness I expect from a Mikkeller or Nogne quality imperial stout. Quite subtle on the the coffee and cognac front, the coffee’s only what you could hope for in a good English stout (without cheating and using actual coffee). Lovely ans smooth and rich in the mouth. A touch vanilla-ey, making it really mellow. Only a pleasant warming alcohol, no booze pokes through beyond the nice dark espresso bite of the roasts. Quite a bitter throb remains. Palate is on the slick side, a touch sticky after swallowing, but that’s not intrinsically a no-no, it works quite well in a beer like this. Lovely sipper, but I prefer the beerier nature of the non-barrel aged version.
Rerate: 250ml bottle (Drink Shop, Tallinn) (8:4:8:4+:14=3.8)
Damn - that smells so good I want to dive into it and drown!

25cl nip bottle. Pours like any other Mikkeller impy stout - pitch black - but with a slightly smaller head than normal, a small tight mocha heada that recedes to a bubbly collar. Aroma is combination of smoky, roasty Mikkeller stout with a heavy dose of sweet boozy cognac. Some bittersweet chocolate and burnt coffee beans as well. Hints of peat. Taste has the is really sweet with dark fruits and chocolate up front with some heavy boozy sweetness. That said, the underlying heavily roasted malts are noticeable and the chocolate takes on a bittersweet character in the finish. Mouthfeel is smooth and a bit boozy with some oaky notes. Pretty thick on the palate. This doesn’t hold a candle to the base weasel in my opinion, which I think is a fantastic beer. It’s a barrel-heavy version that ratchets down my favorite aspect of the original, the coffee. It’s tasty, but not worth the price IMO.

Lukaduke (2060) - Portland, Maine, USA - APR 15, 2012
Rich dark pour with minimal tan head... aromas of rich chocolate, dried plums and coffee. The flavors are over the top, so much going on its easy to pull notes out of this complex beer but hard to stop.... boozy, bittersweet chocolate, tobacco, molasses a touch of smoke from the oak and a whole lot more ! Yummy a real treat but at $13.99 for a 375ml not sure Ill be splurging on this one a second time.

pantanap (3351) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 14, 2012
330cl bottle? a touch pricey but can’t deny the weasel poop i guess... pours a deep shade of stouty black, mostly opaque throughout with exception of the barely reddish tint at the very edge. a thin tan head rests on top but quickly results with a tan ring around the collar... aroma is a touch ashy with hints of mild roast with concentrations of rich cognac and deep dark fruit accents. the kopi seems to have faded considerably and the barrel taking on more of a prominent role. somewhat salty with hints of scotch to boot. that being said, fairly assertive but smooth with sweetness throughout... flavors are extremely more of the same with medium char, subtle roast, and assertive bittersweet chocolate. the barrel imparts smooth cognac and wood. semi-sweet throught with a light bitterness emerging on the backend. intense but not way too forward with some ash surfacing three quarters of the way through and lingering late. just above a medium bodied, somewhat full with a light tough of carbonation. pleasantly surprised by this one.

Shared a 250ml bottle with Doug at the Bayou. This is a treat. This beer is filled with chocolate, grapes, brandy, vanilla, caramel, and the alcohol comes across as fruity. This was a highlight of our midday tasting. Great beer.

8.5 oz bottle at the Bayou. Pours a pure black color with a small brown head. A superb sweet nose of sweet dates, cognac, dark fruit. Rich, huge beer, vanilla, coffee, barrel, dates and figs, tobacco. Not a everyday beer, but a dessert.
