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.

25cl bottle, pours pitch black with a small brown head that's gone a pretty quickly. Taste is smooth and the alcohol is well hidden. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours an absolutely beautiful inky sable with a thick, dark tan head that hangs around for a while. Rich aroma has a strong note of quality roast coffee and tones of licorice, molasses, chocolate and nuts. Fabulous flavor lives up to the scrumptious aroma - smoky, nutty, with good tones of coffee, chocolate, licorice and wood and an underpinning of cognac that gives it quite a kick. Thick, smooth, oily texture doesn’t have much fizz, but leaves a smoky and cognac-y finish. If you love good stouts, especially barrel-aged ones, this one is a must!

tommann (3266) - Dudley, West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUN 3, 2012
250ml bottle. Pours thick black with a very thin head. Aroma is chocolate and bourbon notes. Taste has a little tar to start. Some roast and alcohol burn on the finish. Bit of a let down.

oh6gdx (24887) - Vasa, FINLAND - JUN 2, 2012
Bottled. Pitch black colour, small brown head. Aroma is liquorice, alcohol, sweet stinging notes of cognac with some mild coffee and roasted notes. Flavour is quite much the same. The cognac and alcohol makes it rather too much stinging sweet.

Dark opaque black color, small brown head. Licorice and alcohol. Full-bodied. Licorice, dark malts, some cognac. Alcoholic finish. Nice anyways although I prefer Calvados version of this a bit.

keanex (1749) - Atco, New Jersey, USA - MAY 30, 2012
Poured into a snifter from an 11.2 ounce bottle with no date.

A: Pitch black body with a dark tan, almost brown head that looks menacing. Great looking beer.

S: The civet coffee still comes through with some booze aroma of cognac and oak. Not sweet, nor dry, rather earthy smelling.

T: This is intense, cognac, roasted coffee, and oak hit all at once with a boozy finish. I’m not sure what to make of this as it’s a rush of a lot of flavors at once and as a person who doesn’t drink cognac I’m not used to the flavor.

M: Thick and syrupy, no carbonation to note, though that’s for the best here.

O: This is not worth the huge price (~$15 or so for an 11.2oz) to me, then again I’m not a cognac drinker. This is very intense though and I applaud them for making this interesting beer even more so.

drpimento (3004) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 30, 2012
A come-to-jesus beer. Poured at a good temperature with a perfect thick, foamy, blllowy, brown tan head that slowly subsides and lots of lace. Color is an opaque black brown. Aroma is malt, roast, dark ripe fruit, yeast, booze, coffee, cocoa. Flavor’s like nose with sweet, bitter, and tang all large, but proportional. Body is full, lush, and just right with exactly perfect carbonation. Finish is like flavor, fairly long, and a bit boozy. Taking big swallows and diggin’ it. Lawd a-mighty, one fiiiine ass beer.

RolkaNation (141) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - MAY 29, 2012
Bottle poured into snifter. Dark opaque black in color, virtually no head. Could’ve poured maybe a little more vigorously but almost no head, what’s there is paper thin and dark brown. Aroma is great; dark roasted malts, leather, booze, hints of earthy hops, wood, booze. Very typical of the finest imperial stouts. Intense. Taste is very interesting. Plenty of dark roasty malts, surprisingly thin bodied upfront for the style along with some sweetness. Medium is somewhat fruity; dark cherry, figs, etc. The warming alcohol comes near the end along with a nice dry hoppy bitterness and just a touch of coffee. A very diverse, unique taste. Don’t pick up too much cognac but I admit that I’m not really familiar with that spirit. I wonder if this bottle lost some carbonation though. Good overall. Would be interested to try another.

Bottle. Last beer of the evening, unfortunately may have suffered a bit from numbed taste buds... Pours clear black, with a very small brown head that dissipates fairly quickly. Aroma is strong with notes of roasted malt, chocolate, coffee, alcohol. Taste is very strong coffee backed by chocolate and caramel. I don’t really notice the cognac directly, but I do get a warming alcohol finish. Very nice
