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.

GothGargoyle (1663) - Vancouver, British Columbia, - NOV 8, 2012
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.

250ml bottle at home. This is the "old" version, bought it in 2013 from Mikkeller and Frinds bottle shop. Black color with nice brown head. Roasted malty aroma, coffee, chocolate, cookies, spicy -cinnamon, wood, alcohol. Sweet and bitter taste like aroma, dark chocolate and coffee, cookies, brownie, light spicy, wood and alcohol. Medium to full oily body with soft carbonation.

Some superlatives apply to this beer. One of the darkest I’ve had, and definetely the darkest brown head I’ve seen, though it doesn’t last long. The texture is, if not the thickest, then the most velvety and creamy mouthfeel I’ve had. Aroma starts off as pure coffee, with the cognac taking a while to sneak through, though it is pleasant when it arrives. Dark chocolate and black fruits with some toasty malts in the mouth. The booze is present but submerged, not under cloying sweetness but under a weight of chocolate.

RichTheVillan (4384) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUN 17, 2015
Bottle from Cotteridge Wines; deep opaque black pour with a big dark tan head, quite a big cognac aroma with some sweet chocolate and roast, taste has smooth chocolate, vanilla, some coffee, cognac not as big in the taste as the aroma but there, dark fruit, very good.

MrHangover (3142) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - MAY 9, 2015
Bottle @ THLBBT May. Pours a pitch black beer with a decent amount of brown head. Aroma is boozy, roasty, touches of cognac but not much. Flavor is very alcoholic and strong a bit out of balance, some coffee in there, base beer has faded behind a strong alcoholic front, most likely done by the cognac. Aftertaste is strong and sweet as well. Meh, not the greatest.

kermis (6866) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - MAY 8, 2015
Bottle shared. Pours near black with a beige head. Aroma of overpowering cognac booziness upfront with caramel, licorice, dark chocolate and coffee subdued behind. Flavour is moderate to heavy sweet and bitter. Full bodied with soft carbonation. The cognac didn’t work so well with this, too boozy and detracting from the excellent base beer.

SlackerMads (2062) - DENMARK - MAY 8, 2015
Bottle. Black with a medium sized dark brown head. Smells real nice; wood, pepper, vanilla, fudge. Soft and filling mouthfeel with warming and light stinging alcohol. Pleasantly sweet with balancing bitterness, some acidity too. Rich flavor with oak, salty licorice, light minerals, roasted malt, figs, vanilla, coffee, dark chocolate. Malty finish that slowly fades. Good, real good.

thepeter (325) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 14, 2015
Black pour with thin head. Grassy, orange peel, cocoa, charcoal, booze on the nose. Taste is a dry field of grass, cocao, burnt wood, not overly complex and a bit dry for me. Feel was a bit thin for the style but overall decent.

thebeertourist (5083) - Oslo, NORWAY - APR 12, 2015
On tap at Mikkeller Bar Stockholm. Black with a beige head. Complex roasted coffee, oranges, vanilla aromas. Good dry roast balanced by orange zest, vanilla and sweeter chocolate flavours. A great beer.

Pitch black with very small brown head. Aroma off roasted malts, coffee, quite boozy, cocoa, some sweetness. Heavy alcohol in taste together with coffee and some soy sauce.
