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.

dogfishho (588) - Bloomfield, New Jersey, USA - JAN 7, 2013
Such promise on the nose and yet little is delivered. The cognac comes through very clearly in the aroma with some support of oak, vanilla, roastiness, and a touch of soy. On the palate, this beer is much thinner than what would be expected and there is not enough sweetness to balance out a weird astringency. It’s a small, expensive bottle and it’s tough to finish.

Lectvay (115) - 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 (1986) - 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 (6188) - 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 (1691) - 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.

VsXsV (2203) - Linköping, SWEDEN - MAY 12, 2014
Bottle. Opaque black liquid with small tan head. Aroma of dried fruit, perfume, wood, raw sugar, chocolate, vanilla, coffee, caramel and light booze. Taste is medium sweet and light to medium bitter with notes of vanilla, chocolate, wood and dried fruit. Full bodied with low carbonation. Extremely viscous. Great beer.

Geokkjer (5621) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAY 9, 2014
Bottle. Pours black with a small beige head. Aroma of coffee, roasted malt, some soy sauce, roasted malt and chocolate. Flavor is sweet and malty with some coffee, congac, wood, warming alcohol and chocolate. Full body, soft carbonation.

TheHognof (3) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - MAY 6, 2014 does not count
Nose: cognac, sweet toffee, cognac, wee bit of roast, cognac Pour: very dark brown, no head, mocha lacing Mouthfeel: very light carbonation, full bodied Palate: Jesus, this is outstandingly more-ish! First up, cognac sweetness followed by a lovely chocolate and oat mix finished with slight booziness in the throat. On further mouthfuls roastiness makes itself apparent. Overall, a dark beer as smooth as its cognac counterpart, being tasty with low carbonation means this goes down ridiculously well for 10.9%

DocLock (7745) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 25, 2014
Pours dark brown black with tan head. Nose is heavy cacao, coffee, dark roasty malt. Tastes intense, very thick and rich, with heavy cacao, coffee, dark malt, figgy raisiny fruit, Finishes complex, intense, and delicious.

Crompt (109) - York, South Carolina, USA - MAR 3, 2014
Another Greek brunch from krompt, that weasel. He tried too convince me it wasn’t that good and the standard brunch weasel was better. He is a liar, don’t trust him. I’ve never had cognac but this makes me very interested in trying it because it works well for this beer.

Pours an opaque black with a small light brown ring of head. Aroma is cognac, roasted malts, coffee, dark chocolate, oak, licorice and a touch of soy sauce. Flavour is cognac, roasted malts, dark chocolate, coffee, licorice, mild alcohol and a nice velvety mouth feel.
