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.

Thick viscous pour. Thin brown head. Aroma shows more coffee than the aroma. Nice barrel notes. Fudge, tannins, cognac and roast. Barrel is nice it does cover up the coffee some. Another solid effort but hardly worth the price tag unless its for the nostalgia

BenH (2259) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - APR 1, 2012
From bottle. Black with tan head. Aroma is like spiced chocolate cake, doughy, lots of chocolate, little coffee and licorice. Taste is more of the same, spiced chocolate cake, ovaltine, dark chocolate, some licorice and a little coffee. Thick, sweet and a clean finish. I thought the cognac might clash with the coffee in this but it works quite well. Not as good as the straight brunch weasel IMO but still very nice.

Yorker (1167) - Herning, DENMARK - MAR 31, 2012
25 cl bottle @ home. Pours pitch black with a small khaki coloured head that quickly disappears leaving no lace. Aroma is coffee, chocolate, roasted malts, vanilla, liquorice, and just a hint of booze as the beer warms. Taste is very similar to aroma but is dominated by a slightly bitter finish. Not really that different from the regular version.

Boozy, astringent, fusel and a lactic sourness. Very bad, probably the worst beer of the night, but I haven’t had the Uraguaian beer yet.

Travlr (11214) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - MAR 31, 2012
Bottles courtesy of Beerandblues2, thank you sir! Very dark maroon, small brown head. Aroma of coffee and very subtle creosote. Taste is slightly boozy chocolate, coffee. The barrel does nothing for the base beer, which is a near perfect beer in itself.

GT2 (8380) - San Diego County, California, USA - MAR 31, 2012
250mL thanks to beerandblues2. Pours ink with a weak, tan head. No retention. Nose is over barreled and very woody with black olive and salted fig/raisin. Very muted cognac. Taste is tangy, bitter, and very dry with sharp lemon acidity. Palate is overly dry. Pretty chalky. No silk or richness. No cognac. Bitter dark chocolate. Overly dry and wood tannic.

oteyj (2130) - New Hampshire, USA - MAR 31, 2012
Thanks Brad! Super black pour with a thin beige head. I don’t really like this one. Really old coffee and nasty astringency with bitter chocolate in the back. Hints of chocolate sweetness and cocoa nib save it. Medium to full body with a sweet finish.

BeerandBlues2 (9599) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - MAR 31, 2012
Bottle. Pours opaque with a medium, fizzy tan head, medium retention with light lacing. Aroma is spicy coffee, roast and chocolate malt, spicy hops, dark fruity esters. Flavor is malt dominant, earthy coffee, dark fruity esters, cognac notes and a dry finish. Full body, high warmth and medium carbonation.
