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 affringen fra vseldyr. De sydstasiatiske dyr spiser kun de bedste og mest modne kaffebnner. Enzymer i deres fordjelsessystem hjlper til at nedbryde bnnerne. Herefter indsamles affringen som indeholder de hele bnner og bruges til vselkaffen. Kaffen har en kraftig smag og en endnu kraftigere aroma. Nogle mener endda, at kaffen ger sexlysten!
En Imperial Oatmeal Stout brygget p: Vand, malt, humle, gr og vietnamesisk ca phe chon kaffe. Lagret p cognac tnder.

English: The recipe for this beer is as simple as a childs finger painting: you take one of the worlds highest rated beers thats the one called Brunch and then you let it splash about in a totally fresh cognac barrel for three months. After that its a question of out of the barrel, into a bottle and off you go.

Arcanor (385) - Quebec, CANADA - OCT 18, 2016
330ml bottle. Pour pitch black with a tall tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, bitter coffee and cognac. Strong alcohol feel follow by roasted malt and rich coffee, not as bitter as my nose suggest. medium to high body, soft carbonation for the style and oily texture. Long and sweet finish, classic to the Imperial Stout, the alcohol warm the pipe quite nicely.

Holy shit and omg. This beer is fucking huge. Shared (thank the lord!) bottle in greenville. I literally felt one sip go to my head. All the right dark beer notes come through but really balanced. Coffee, chocolate and cognac dominate. Roast and earth come to the table. Dark fruit, prune, fig, vanilla. Really you could find about anything you want in this brew. Complex and cerebral. Boozy is not usually a quality I go for, but works here. Want to try the non cognac version. Outstanding beer.

(330ml 2014 silver wax bottle from Mikkeller Webshop) Pours pitch black with a moderate-sized pale brown head that persists but leaves no lace. Aroma of dark chocolate, powerful cognac with raisins and prunes, moderate roasted grain, burnt wood, liqueur, light tar, soft notes of earthy coffee, hints of vanilla and liquorice. Flavour again has a strong but smooth component of cognac and dried dark fruits, especially prune, semisweet chocolate, moderate toasted malts, subtle earthy coffee and cacao nibs, light vanilla. Finish is drying and moderately bitter to balance the vinous cognac, with roasted grains, light wood, coffee grinds, a touch of liquorice. Full bodied and rather viscous with soft carbonation and a touch of alcohol. So smooth, with a wonderful fruity character from the cognac imbuing a world-class stout body and softening it. Surely the coffee has faded a bit with age, but provides balance. Lovely.

4chon (6) - Olsztyn, POLAND - MAY 6, 2016 does not count
Oh boy here we go! Aroma is full of vanilla,dark fruits,coffee,roasted malts and chocolate. Color is deep black with no foam. Taste is what blew me away. Tons of vanilla sweetness is countered by bitter counter with just tons and tons of coffee and chocolate.Full bodied,oily Imperial Stout with no carbonation with long finish and coffee aftertaste. Well hidden alcohol with 10.9% ABV is really something. Mikkeller your beer is outstanding!

Aromat powala. Cudowna beczka, drewno, nuty koniaku, w tle gorzka czekolada, lekka wanilina. W smaku idealny balans pomiędzy beczką, drewnem, a slodyczą, palonsoscia, lekko kwaskową Szlachetną kawą. Gęste, pełne, czarne z brązowa drobnopecherzykową pianą. Swietne

UPDATED: FEB 12, 2017 Pours oily black, slightly haze, with foamy brown head. Visually low carbonation. Aroma: rich dark and roasted malt aroma, with notes of coffee, dark chocolate, cacao powder and nibs, roasted coffee nibs, supported with notes of molasses, vanilla, oak and cognac. Flavor: Rich roadted coffee and dark malts flavors, which also takes on coffee, dark chocolate, are supported with flavor of Cognac, vanilla, cinnamon, hint of licorice, oak. In the background are hop notes, which takes of dark fruits. Taste is sweet, with evident alcohol presence, and dry, slightly bitter finish. Body is full, texture soft, carbonation low. The normal, non barrel aged version is still the best one for me.
