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.

jkwalking05 (3826) - Arlington, Texas, USA - JUL 17, 2013
Rated in April 2012 (Backlog) - Black in color with an average sized beige head. Aroma is havy in coffee with roasted malts, butter, sweet cream, caramel and prune. Taste is also very heavy in coffee with lots of wood, caraml, chocolate, booze, and a peppery finish.

maneliquor (3156) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JUL 8, 2013
Bottle from Mane Liquor. Pours pitch black with no head. With a swirl it gives off a very dark tan head leaving good lacing. Nose shows a heap of bitter espresso and unbalanced vanilla with a fair chunk of booze to go with it. The taste is more balanced and smooth than the nose aludes to. It’s all about the espresso tones though. Coffee is the focus with heavy doses of dark chocolate, light spice and a constant creeping on of vanilla. Sweet finish which helps round off the bitter espresso characteristics. A little heat on the finish and mouth feel is a touch thin. Solid beer but Mikkeller has done better

bmerz (712) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - JUN 9, 2013
Bottle 2012 drank June 2013. The aroma is moderately strong dark roast, raisin, soy, really good coffee, and wood. The flavor is somewhat like a bitter cola. It’s sugary sweet though not cloying before the notes in the aroma plus a more herbal bitter character come in and give way to long woody very bitter chocolate and espresso finish. It’s a bit thin in feeling with subdued carbonation and a slight alcohol bite. It’s not as big or complex as I was expecting. Still plenty good.

Bammmm, this is awesome. I really loved the cognac influence on this. Good clean looking beer, slight head, but a lovely treacle look. Sweet upfront then a lovely, balanced, roast. The beer finishes dry but leaving you asking for a bigger bottle!

rxeight (1366) - Illinois, USA - MAY 25, 2013
Tiny little expensive ass bottle into a snifter. Sitting in my fridge for over a year. Aroma of brownie batter. Chocolate and malt. Touch of coffee lots of booze. The booze slowly builds on the back end and lingers for a bit. Not familiar with conjac, but there is something in there im not familiar with. This is good stuff. Definately not worth $2 an ounce.

Foffern (1252) - 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 (680) - 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.

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 (3082) - 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 (4120) - 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.
