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.

Pinball (11088) - 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 (8669) - 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.

Thanks to Dixonian for sharing this bottle at bu11zeye’s 10,000th rating tasting. The beer pours a dark brown color with no real head. The aroma is full of roasted malt, but I also get some oak and smoke notes. The cognac is virtually absent in the aroma, but really comes through strong in the flavor. I also get some oak, chocolate, coffee, roasted malt and alcohol notes in the flavor. Overall, the flavor profile is quite complex and very enjoyable. Thick mouthfeel and low carbonation.

Bottle at Dan’s, courtesy of Aaron. Thanks for this bunch! Poured a dark brown, almost black with a small head that quickly dissipated. Aroma is molasses, raisins, light alcohol, coffee, and espresso. Taste follows the aroma with hints of tobacco and a nice deep chocolate finish. Creamy mouthfeel with soft carbonation. Good lacing. Overall, a nice tasting stout and better than the original. The cognac definitely helps smooth it out.

dlinn (141) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAY 9, 2012
Dark pour. Nice warm carmel aroma (compared to the standard weasel). Mellowest of the weasels I’ve had to date. A bit of earthiness and slight oaky after flavor.

Pours a pitch black beer with a weak beige head. The aroma is malt, roasted, chocolate, licorice, wood and cognac. The flavor follows the nose with additional alcohol and hops. The palate is sweetness with some bitterness. Overall a good beer.

magdalar (516) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - MAY 9, 2012
Bottle at Mikkeller bar. Pours a very dark brown, with a thin brown head. Smells of oatmeal, coffee, cognac, molasses. Tastes of a heavy sweetness, medium bitter, cognac, brown sugar. Finishes sweet, with a cognac finish. Medium bodied, soft but prickly carbonation, oily texture. Lovely, except perhaps the texture.
