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.

Ungstrup (29081) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - FEB 27, 2012
Bottled. A pitch black beer with a thin dark brown head. The aroma has notes of alcohol, coffee, soy sauce, roasted malt. The flavor is powerful with notes of alcohol, roasted malt, wood, coffee, and caramel, leading to a dry, alcoholic, and roasted finish. Can’t pick up the cognac, just as the warming alcohol feeling you also get cognac.

Papsoe (25090) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - FEB 28, 2012
Bottle 25 cl. Courtesy of joergen. Pours black and opaque with a small and creamy light brown head. The Cognac completely dominates the aroma and even manages to overpower the thick roasty malts. Rich body, the hard roast malts come through now combined with licorice ad dried dark fruits and again these plesantly smooth Cognac notes leaving quite some heat. The coffee has mellowed out though. Some roasty bitterness. A nice experience indeed. 240212

Bottled. Pitch black colour, small brown head. Aroma is liquorice, alcohol, sweet stinging notes of cognac with some mild coffee and roasted notes. Flavour is quite much the same. The cognac and alcohol makes it rather too much stinging sweet.
