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.

Had this side by side with the Calvados bottle. Both poured the same: near black, viscous, with a medium brown head. Both had dense aroma nd flavour profiles, lots of hearty roast, bitter chocolate, licorice. Of the two, this was distinctly sweeter, with stronger elements of rich coffee roast and sweet cognac character. Im not a cognac fan, but when married to a quality imperial stout, Mikkeller has hown me it can be a beautiful thing.

MIBRomeo (2570) - Wisconsin, USA - SEP 1, 2012
Jet black pour small dark brown soapy brown head with some good lacing. Aroma is hot alcohol cognac front end then some quite acidic hot hops as well and a hint of bitter coffee. The alcohol is really hot on this, Id love to age this bottle for a couple years and see how it matures. Well coated palate rich and creamy full bodied. Rich and smooth lots of roast malt with a dry finish hints of milk chocolate and some nice roasted coffee. The wood notes create a dry tongue and the congnac adds some additional alchol notes, a tiny touch of apple and some buttery notes. A very well done beer, that I think will improve with age.

yngwie (16763) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - SEP 1, 2012
Bottle, 25cl. It pours a slightly oily, black body, topped by a small, dense, tan head. The aroma is rather mocha-ish, with some molasses and a faint licorice touch, as well as caramel and cognac notes. Its sweet on the palate, but with enough bitterness to deal with it. Coffee, chocolate and cognac dominates the flavor, hints of licorice and caramel lurks in the background. Super-smooth, full-bodied and warming on the palate. A bit too warming maybe, but pleasant anyway. Lasting finish. A really lovely one, but I still prefer the un-barreled edition. 120116

Fin (10059) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 31, 2012
Bottle from Dranken Geers, Oostakker, nr Gent, Belgium. Consumed at Trev & Donnas Lower Heyford, Oxfordshire Friday 31st August 2012 Pours pitch black, grimping mire black, very, very thick in mouth. Nose is typically Mikkeller, not sure I can describe what I mean by that, but I know where Im coming from. Huge coffee mouth very spirity, with chocolate as well coming to the front. This is a glorious kalaidescope of flavours and simply a marvellous beer. A8 A4 T8 P5 Ov16 4.1

gramity (1625) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 29, 2012
Pours mahogany with a brief tan bloom that settles to a slick. Nose is molasses, prune and raisin, rich earthy coffee, then wonderful wafts of vanilla and cognac. Slippery medium body with a soft tingle as it melts on the tongue. Taste is bittersweet chocolate and espresso, quite abrupt at first in its intensity. Lingering dark chocolate and caramel play off dry notes of wood and cognac. Barrel characteristics were spot on for me.

Huhzubendah (3650) - Washington DC, USA - AUG 20, 2012
Bottle from Blind Tiger in NYC. The beer is black with a dense, dark beige head. Plenty of lacing left on the tulip. The aroma offers dark roast, dark chocolate, oak, coffee, light cognac. Rich and silky smooth. Cognac character gains strength as the beer warms, lingering in the finish. Overall, another fine variant of Weasel. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a dense black with nice chocolate milk head...quickly turning into whisps of head. Smells like vanilla, dark chocolate, and booze. A touch of sweet milk chocolate at first...then dark chocolate and mocha flavours. A nice warm boozy finish. Thick and oily palate. Oh so good.
