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.

Pour is completely black with a thin beige head that quickly fades into nothingness. Aroma is of light booze, coffee, and burnt sugar. Flavor is very sweet, almost cloying, with cognac and coffee throughout. Sticky and syrupy mouthfeel.

Idiosynkrasie (4923) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - MAY 19, 2012
250ml bottle. Opaque black with small brown slightly lacing head leaving a thin layer. Intense aroma with coffee, roast, dark chocolate notes, some alcohol with cognac touch I personally do not like that much. Taste is less balanced as in other versions, some tart in the beginning, coffee and chocolate notes are almost completely disguised, a touch of soapy cognac aroma in the finish.

demmbonz (666) - Erin, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 19, 2012
UPDATED: MAY 20, 2012 Pours thick and black with zero head. Can’t quite pinpoint the aroma, but its kinda funky and I don’t really like it. Just a hint of carbonation on the palate. Unbelievably smooth. Coffee and booze flavor. This is my first cognac brew. I like the taste. Hate the aroma but not sure if that’s from the cognac. Thought the bottle was going to be too small but turned out to be a perfect one man sample size. $14...holy expensive but no regrets.

Served from a 8.5 oz bottle from OTM. The appearance is a beautiful dark chocolaty brown with a big brown foam bubble head. The nose is alcohol, and cognac or brandy booze I guess. Some roasty character too with a healthy coffee dose behind the liquor. The flavors have fruity alcohol, apples, rich coffee, oatmeal, heavy roasted grain, nice melon and apple alcohol tones. Full and smooth smooth. Just like the regular Beer Geek Brunch, very easy to drink with a low acidity. A fantastic and delicious beer. The price is very high, especially for the size but at least the beer was delicious. I’ll probably try to find the Calvados version to compare since the back of my bottle says "aged in Calvados"

BINGEBOT (240) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 14, 2012
This beer is simply perfect. I mean sure, it smell a little boozy, and it’s flat by appearance. The palate is thick and oily, what you’d expect. Feels great on the tongue. Nose is sweet and sharp. Buttery (very light), caramel, candy, roasted. This stuff is the elixir of the gods. Bit of choco, roasted caramel, malt sweet. I wish the bottle was bigger (although I’d probably pay for it, cause it’s pretty strong!)

Pinball (11412) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 14, 2012
pitch black, smooth large brown head. Roasted malty aroma, coffee, faint wood tartness, wood, cognac, pretty much going on, as it heats up the roast become stronger. Flavor is roasted malts, wood, licorice, peppry alc. bite, coffee, cognac, wood, vanilla, the wood has mellowed the weasel a bit, but it sort of comes back in the aftertaste which is very roasted and flavorfull. The cognaq balance is superp, i fail to remember when i last time had one that was not overdone, but still had flavor notes. World class imp. stout, and probably the best cognac barrelled i’ve had. (cognac is not my favourite barreling treatment for imp stouts) This is better than desssert. it is THE dessert. it’s the shit..

mcberko (9355) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 13, 2012
8.5 oz. bottle, sent from Glouglouburp (thanks Dany), pours pitch black with a beautiful small brown head. Aroma is very rich, with cognac, dark fruits, dark roasted malt, some coffee and vanilla. Flavour is quite roasted and woody upfront, with vanilla, cognac, lots of booze, dark fruits, and finishes very woody, dry and boozy, with some noticeable hop presence. Thick, viscous palate and quite vinous. Excellent edition of this great beer.
