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.

Angelmonster (112) - Colorado, USA - APR 11, 2012
Pours a pitch black color. Head is dark brown and half an inch. Head retention and lacing are good for such a strong beer. Smell is of rich, roasted strong coffee. There is also some chocolate mixed with alcohol/brandy. Oak and smoke are in the mix also, not much in the hops area. Taste is of strong, bitter, acidic coffee. Chalky, burnt malts come in next. Alcohol is definitely a major flavor along with dark fruits like prune. Hops arent very much in there. Mouthfeel is on the thicker side but not too much. Carbonation levels were ok and head added some texture to body. Overall, this beer was good but really expensive. 16 bucks for an 8.5 ounce bottle, dont know if I’d shell out that much money for one again. I love coffee beers but this one didnt really stand out from the other many ones I’ve had.

Plovmand (6302) - Helsinge, DENMARK - APR 8, 2012
Bottle at home. Pours jet black with a small creamy brown head. The aroma is cognac like booze, hard roasted malt, sweet dark fruit, cocoa and chocolate. The flavour is cognac, wood, sweet roasted malt, chocolate, coffee and hops. Long sweet roasted finish. I still like the base beer much better.

phredrik (1010) - Copenhagen (formerly Aalborg), DENMARK - APR 6, 2012
Bottle shared by Jaksmart. Pours light pale. Less head formation than the Calvados edition. Aroma buttery chocolate, much like newly baked brownie, coffee, dark fruits, diacetyl. The aroma is very different from the original, though it isn’t the Cognac treatment that’s shining though. A bit of alcohol, but mainly chocolate and butter. Not a bad smell, but the butter thing must be faulty. Taste is also chocolate forward, lots of coffee, burnt caramel, slightly ashy, a bit boozy and a hint of diacetyl in the finish. In my opinion the least of the BA versions of this beer.
