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.

Cirrhosis (1266) - Edmonton, Alberta, - OCT 17, 2012
Dark chocolate brown, with a thin brown film floating on top. Sweet aroma with heavy alcohol but high quality heavy alcohol. The cognac has permeated every single molecule of this aroma. Chocolaty malts in the aroma with hint of coffee. SO MUCH BOOZE!!! Taste is not as epic but still awesome. Cold coffee with whiskey...just like your molester uncle use to drink. Sweet alcohol coats the throat with every sip......raspberry maybe. My my that was good

Sigmund (5798) - Tau, NORWAY - AUG 30, 2015
330 ml bottle with silver waxed top - only the silver wax identifies the beer, the label is the same as for the "normal" Beer Geek Brunch Weasel (confirmed by the brewery). Cardinal Pub & Bar, Stavanger. Pitch black colour, moderate to low brown head. Lovely and complex aroma, beguiling coffee notes blends in with liquorice, vanilla, dark chocolate, oak and cognac. Rich mouthfeel, moderate carbonation. Rich and delightful flavour, medium sweet, not cloying, smooth roast malts and coffee notes with cognac, dark chocolate, vanilla and oak. Jolly good!

SeniorZozo (303) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JUL 28, 2015
dark brown, minimal head. Aroma somewhat subdued, considering. Taste is explosive, sweet, dark, chocolate, and intense but not roasty coffee, vanilla and marshmallow, but the Whiskey Cask edition is better than this.

Lore (1516) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JUL 26, 2015
very dark, almost black colour, huge, dense dark brown head; aroma of chocolate, roasted coffee, woody and vanilla notes, and some spicy alcohol; taste of roasted bitterness of coffee, some syrupy sweetness which is more and more intensive as it warms up, woody, vanilla and herbal notes, hints of dark chocolate, maybe some cognac; oily texture; really amzing!

Sjohnh (484) - Coventry, West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUN 19, 2015
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.
