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.

patrickfannon (1242) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 6, 2012
Bottle. 11.2 oz. Coutresy of James. Split with Vinnie, James, and Dave Rivera. Pours deep black with a red/amber/beige head. Aroma of Sharpie marker, extremely bitter black coffe beans, oak, peat, burnt rye toast, and some sweet malted barley. Medium bodied with a slightly boozy, slightly spicy mouhtfeel and a bit of a hot finish, although notably restrained. This is excellent.

marcus (7307) - Sacramento, California, USA - APR 6, 2012
Bottle from Davis Beer Shoppe. Pours dark brown with a thin tan head and a treacle and cognac aroma. There is an intense chocolate and dark molasses flavor with a dry bitter finish and a warm alcohol trail. Very tasty.

phredrik (1011) - 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.

Jaksmart (454) - Aarhus, DENMARK - APR 6, 2012
25cl bottle. Pitch black with a minimum of brown foam. Aroma has buttery sweet chocolate, smooth coffee, brownies, figs, dark fruits, cookie dough, butter, diacetyl and cane sugar. The aroma is fairly different from standard BGB, but it isn’t exploding with oak and cognac - they mainly fool around in the back somewhere. Noticeable but slightly intangible. Taste is quite powerful and more oaky with some cognac/whisky-type notes but still dominated by the more down-to-earth chocolate- and coffee characteristics. Very sweet in general with a softened bitterness in the end. Very good and enjoyable. Maybe a little rough around the edges - could probably use a few more months in the bottle. Slightly boozy.

Bottle @ Ølbutikken. Looks as perfect as the original :) vanilla, cognac and oak, roasted malts, coffee. OILY mouthfeel, can hardly imagine one better. Nice bitterness arising from the cognac character. A worthwhile, essential variation on the original theme.

JaBier (5300) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - APR 4, 2012
Little bottle purchased at Blacklick Wine & Spirits. Darkest brown pour with a thin tan head. Aroma of chocolate, smooth coffee, roast and booze. Chocolate and slight cherry flavor up front, then a bit of booze before a roasty coffee and dark chocolate finish. Not quite as good as the regular, but still pretty tasty.

thewolf (11383) - Kolding, DENMARK - APR 4, 2012
Bottle, bought @ Ølbutikken, Cph.
Completely black with a firm, creamy, beige head. Great duration. Aroma is lovely, light boozy, clear cognac, coffee, roasted, dark chocolate. Good fresh vanilla oak. Lowish carbonation, fat and creamy mouthfeel. Flavour has lovely deep coffee, dark chocolate, good oaky dryness, some cocoa. Fine cognac character spices up an already fantastic beer. Still prefer the original.

COGNAC’D STOUTS... HATE ’EM!

near-black sepia, thin tan ring. Nose is cheesy cognac, light brownie, spritzy like every weak cognac’d-stout beer I’ve had. Flavor is more cake and cognac, lighter than nose, muddled burnt and sweet notes, more pleasant reminiscent of lager cognac, sugary brownie through sticky end.
