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.

Deep black with a minimal chocolate head. Aroma is chocolate, coffee, cognac, dates, figs, vanilla. Slick and luxurious mouthfeel, slightly sweet on the palate with a rich and warming coffee finish. Taste is coffee, chocolate, dark fruits, vanilla, cocoa nibs, molasses. Delicious, think I prefer it to the regular Beek Geek Brunch Weasel.

the smoke is done well. up front, but not overbearing in the aroma or flavor. but it seems the dubbel that is the foundation of this beer is a bot lacking and thin for the abv. really like the smoke aspect, but the base beer just ok."

BMMillsy (1433) - Florida, USA - SEP 1, 2014
Small overpriced 250 ml I grabbed while in Paris. Drinking in my hotel room in Bruges. Pours pitch black with a small ring of mocha head on top. Aroma of anise, chocolate, and huge notes of boozy cognac. Flavor follows with cognac forward flavors, extremely sweet, just a hint of light Kopi coffee , a little chocolate vanilla swirl, and a good bit of anise flavor. This is insanely sweet and on the side of being a bit much, and without the full mouthfeel that I would want with something like this. Pretty rich mouthfeel but not thick enough, with lower carbonation and a long sweet cognac finish. Not bad, but definitely save this one for dessert. 250 mls is more than enough, and that’s coming from someone who downed a full 750 of DB Hunahpu alone.

Hammy78 (749) - Dundas, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 28, 2014
Bottle from West Lakeview Liquors, and has been sitting in my cellar for over two years. Pours midnight black, thin khaki head that dies to an oily ring, lacing that stays if anything, but mainly non-existent. Nose is well, heaven. So silky sweet, surprisingly no real roast on the nose. Vanilla bean, a touch of coffee and booze. Tastes really sweet, roasty, dark chocolate bitter, boozy to the point that it is a bit dry in the mouth, vanilla, toffee, chocolate fudge, a touch of caramel, and coffee finally. Incredibly complex. Fantastic, another hit, almost bummed I took so long to drink it.

sudomorph (644) - Barrie, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 24, 2014
8.5oz bottle. Pours black with a ring, tan head. Aroma has smooth notes of dark chocolate, coffee, and barrel, and slight spirits. Taste is bitter but balanced. Super smooth notes of dark chocolate, coffee, barrel, spirits, and a bit of alcohol taste and warmth. Not as tart or fruity as the calvados. Medium-full body with a low-medium carbonation. Silky mouth feel with a perfect carbonation. Overall epic. The coffee and chocolate are tamer than the base but with smooth barrel and cognac notes. Really elegant beer.

LoFi (1594) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - AUG 13, 2014
Bottle from backlog. Black with a brown head. Aroma: chocolate pralines, roasted, wood, licorice, cognac. Taste: soy sauce, dark wine gums, sweet licorice, salmiak, milk chocolate and cocoa, cognac, wood. Full-bodied. My kind of beer, although as I remember it, I loved the calva version even more.

Lectvay (145) - Boise, Idaho, USA - MAY 27, 2014
Bottle I picked up in 2012. Dark, dark, dark brown, minimal head. Aroma somewhat subdued, considering. Taste is explosive, sweet, dark, chocolate, and intense but not roasty coffee, vanilla and marshmallow, a sort of chocolate milk creaminess. Really smooth, barely any burning.

maekchu (2200) - Hirakata, JAPAN - MAY 27, 2014
Bottle. Cognac right up the nose immediately, along with serious dark roast and a lot of fumes. Dark as can be, dark brown head, no lace. Barrel is so strong, then some smooth chocolate emerges, but then barrel kicks in again. Boozy with the cognac, soy sauce. Major alc. warmth. Thick, dripping sticky body. Wow! Extremely rich stuff. The extra dimension from the barrel aging is very nice. But the regular version of this beer is tastier and more of an imperial stout experience.

KyotoLefty (6569) - Kyoto, JAPAN - MAY 24, 2014
Shared by Maekchu for my 6000th rate. Black with lace. Nose of cognac, soy sauce, smoke, grapes. Lots of umami, cognac and woody barrel. Flavor is grapes and cognac, oysters, something a bit fishy, coffee, salt. Lots of grapes / raisins, and a touch of licorice. Very nice, though I like the regular better.

Gerbeer (1838) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 20, 2014
Small bottle. Pours black with full tan head. Aromas and flavors are similar to the base brunch but with more sharp alcohol in smell and taste. Still an excellent beer but not as notable as the base brunch or other BA versions.
