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.

Foffern (1061) - Bodø, NORWAY - MAY 22, 2013
Bottle shared with (and great courtesy of) the Bergen tasting crew. The colour is deep nut brown and has no head. Powerful aroma with lots of liqour, oak, caramel, chocolate truffles, soy sauce and nice sweetness. More pronounced cognac in the flavour along with warming alcohol and coffee in the end. Has a rich and sticky mouth feel, and a light to medium bitterness. The beer has a distinct touch of cognac and alcohol, but is pretty decent.

Valgreen (457) - DENMARK - MAY 20, 2013
Bottle at Mads, 20 / 5 2013. Pitch black, with high viscosity. Very small brown head. Aroma off roasted malts, coffee, quite boozy, cocoa, some sweetness. Powerfull taste. Coffee, alcohol, dry. Great beer.

Inbreak (1526) - Loddefjord, NORWAY - MAY 12, 2013
UPDATED: FEB 23, 2014 11.05.2013, 0,25l bottle sampled @ BBGTC moving-home-tasting for Floffern:
Small shortlasting head. Aroma is slightly neutral, cocoa, alcohol, grass, coffee, dark sugar, wood, almonds. Taste is medium rich and sweet, slightly dry, coffee, dark sugar, wood, cocoa, alcohol, grass. Medium dry finish and bitterness. Not a favourite, I have never really been a big fan of cognac barrel aging.

JStax (2601) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - MAY 12, 2013
Nip bottle thanks to weihenweizen for picking this up. Pours a thick, viscous black with a brown head of foam. Aroma has some rich caramel and vanilla ice cream on top of rich coffee roasty notes. There’s an interesting raspberry note in there as well. Thick mouthfeel. Nice beer!

ClubGonzo (3509) - Bergen, NORWAY - MAY 11, 2013
Bottle, shared with Foffern and Inbreak at Foffern’s going-away tasting. Pours a pitch black body with a tiny beige head. Nose is faint cognac, dark chocolate, hints of licorice and coffee. A bit neutral, compared to the Calvados version. Taste is coffee, cognac, wood, licorice, dark chocolate, coffee and hints of alcohol. Subtle cognac tones, perhaps a bit too subtle. Full body, soft carbonation. A nice enough beer, but I prefer the Calvados or regular version.

BOLTZ7555 (2701) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - MAY 5, 2013
Bottle acquired @ Beachwood BBQ. Dark creamy brownie batter pour with a thick mocha-colored head. Chewy. Ghirardelli, Godiva, and chocolate-covered Kona coffee beans. Vanilla, oak, cognac, molasses, and brown sugar. Yum!

Kavu (1955) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAY 2, 2013
0,25l bottle. Pours very dark red with no head. Aroma is roasted malts, rye pudding and coffee. Flavor is burnt malts, lots of coffee, alcohol and hops. Very nice.

budznsudz (461) - Audubon, New Jersey, USA - APR 20, 2013
8.5 oz. bottle. Pours like dark ink with only a slight ring around the glass. Aroma is cognac, black licorice, and sweet coffee. Taste is cognac and raisins up front that transitions into roast and coffee of outstanding quality. Thick and oily on the palate leading to a bitter chocolatey finish

Color: deep and dark black beer with no carbonization and no brown head. Smell: licorice, malt, cognac, barrel, raisin, sugar cane. Taste: not so sweet, good equilibrium, malt and cognac, wine and raisin. Aftertaste: malt, liquor, and sweet bitterness.

Bgarnreiter (53) - Alabama, USA - MAR 31, 2013
Pours jet black, with small tab head, light lacing. Flavor is intense! Epic coffee, chocolate, cognac, dark fruits and just amazing stuff. Superb beer, as is obvious.
