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.

7/7/12. Shared at my going away tasting by me. Tiny bottle. Black pour with almost no head. Sweet BA aroma with plenty of ash and smoke. Nice ash and chocolate with some sweet BA. Nice.

Black pour with a creamy tan head. Sweet cognac, chocolate, roasted malt, and vanilla. Oh man, great barrel character, sweet chocolate, burnt sugar and vanilla. Finishes bitter with cognac barrel bitterness.

Bottle pour thanks to Jeff. A very nice treat! Pour is a very dark black, with a nice dark mocha head that fades to a sticky lasting ring. Aroma is sublime: Beautiful mix of vanilla, brown sugar, light wood, caramel, a fair creamy chocolate and coffee presence, with just a little bit of lingering boozyness. Taste falls a bit flat after the complexity of the aroma: Fairly boozy, with a bit of vanilla, light coffee. Lacks the in your face coffee notes of the non-BA version. Kinda odd mouthfeel: thick, but with prickly carbonation and a lasting alcoholic note. Overall, a nice beer I am very glad I got the chance to try. A bit less booze to let the base beer shine through in the taste and it would be even better!

Bacterial (2764) - Twin Cities, Minnesota, USA - JUL 4, 2012
Pour is black, oh so very black with just a faint wisp of dark tan head. Wonderful nose of dark fruits, oak and a hint of booze. Taste is roasted coffee, a subtle heat from the cognac and has nice warm lingering aftertaste. Its just a little thin on my palate, but thats just because I prefer my huge stouts to be more inky and like motor oil. A fun beer to share (just don’t share with more than 2 or 3 people, its a small bottle!).

Bottle shared at an Imperial Stout tasting at kerenmk’s place. Black with a bubbly brown head. Aroma of dark chocolate, soy sauce, wood notes and alcohol. Bittersweet flavor of dark chocolate, a bit of pralines notes, burnt coffee, wood and alcohol. Full-bodied, thick and oily.

Has some intense wood and sweet vanilla scent. Pours a nice black with a tan head, has a nice super smooth alcohol taste with a killer coffee roast and almost light woody/meat flavors. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
