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.

UPDATED: NOV 21, 2012 Bottle at home. Rating number 1000! Brunch Weasel was the first beer I was truly blown away by, it got me into Imperial Stouts into a big way. So when this appeared at work it seemed the natural choice for number 1000. Thanks Jake for getting there first and sharing it with me! Pours a thick viscous black with a tiny cap that instantly vanishes, leaving the faintest, thinnest ring around the edge of the glass. Amazing smooth and light nose for the ABV. Rich chocolate milkshake, that distinctive rounded yet sharp weasel coffee thing from the original, marmite perhaps, some caramel, and just the tiniest hint of apricot-y cognac. Very slight booze sting, really inviting nose. One of those noses that just makes me instinctively grin. First sip is very much Brunch Weasel, but it also tastes like Galaxy caramel! Definite milk chocolate and caramel. Unexpected, but great. So rounded for the ABV. Very slightly acidic (but not astringent) grapey complexity just under the surface. So complex, too. Rich deep chocolate, smooth milky coffee, no roughness at all. Cognac is just bubbling under the body of the beer, enhancing without distracting. Perfectly integrated dry, roasty bitterness on the finish, just the tiniest hint of booze - warm, not hot. A definite "cocoa powder in your mouth" sensation. Touch of tannin even? This is so, so, SO good. I was expecting it to be very good, but perhaps not as good at the original. I was so wrong, this is truly world-class. Reminds me why I love this brewer, perhaps even why I love beer. 4.9............. tasted again with FaithHealer1. I was expecting disappointment - and my score was definitely inflated by the 1000th rating thing, but its still just so good! 4.7

Bottle. Black, viscous, minimal tan head. Strong coffee on the nose, but it is shortly joined by apricots, black chocolate and a big toffee smell, which lingers on. Just so inviting. Tastes absolutely unbelievable: big whack of smooth toffee, silky milk chocolate and jammy apricots, with aftertastes of lovely nutty coffee. And of every other flavour in it. This beer is so good it makes me a little mental.

small bottle, poured dark with dark tan head, toffee and coffee flavors and aromas, not much booziness for 10.9% very interesting. very good but the ale smith speedway is a better imperial stout with coffee. i have a bottle of the calvados and the regular to try which i am interested in comparing. it is a great beer but i think over rated. im hoping just the original not barrel aged will hold up to its reputation. a weasel shit this bean and it was put in a beer then a barrel then a bottle then my mouth. pretty awesome

Thick black pour with a small light brown head. Brownie, chocolate truffle, pecans, and a nice bitter roasty finish, though some old coffee astringency detract. Good, with sweetness and booze on the palate. Not as good as the original though.

$14.49. Pours pitch black with a ring of a dark brown head. No lacing the speak of. The aroma is huge on sweet milk chocolate, oak, cognac, and only a dash of coffee. Almost smells like some Scotches do when all of these aromas meld. Kind of peaty with a roasted wood char. The taste is burnt chocolate with lots of roasted charred wood, tannic oak, marshmallow, and coffee grounds. Roasted. The palate is medium full bodied, silken creamy, and lingering.

TheEpeeist (3709) - Media, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 12, 2012
8.5 oz bottle. 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 Cuban espresso, quite abrupt at first in its intensity. Lingering dark chocolate and caramel play off dry notes of wood and cognac. I cringed at the cost when i bought this and the Black Buffalo but holy shit, this is some amazing barrel work.

25cl bottle, pours pitch black with a small brown head that's gone a pretty quickly. Taste is smooth and the alcohol is well hidden. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours an absolutely beautiful inky sable with a thick, dark tan head that hangs around for a while. Rich aroma has a strong note of quality roast coffee and tones of licorice, molasses, chocolate and nuts. Fabulous flavor lives up to the scrumptious aroma - smoky, nutty, with good tones of coffee, chocolate, licorice and wood and an underpinning of cognac that gives it quite a kick. Thick, smooth, oily texture doesnt have much fizz, but leaves a smoky and cognac-y finish. If you love good stouts, especially barrel-aged ones, this one is a must!
