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.

Pour is black, oh so very black with just a faint wisp of dark tan head. Wonderful nose of dark fruits, oak and a hint of booze. Taste is roasted coffee, a subtle heat from the cognac and has nice warm lingering aftertaste. Its just a little thin on my palate, but thats just because I prefer my huge stouts to be more inky and like motor oil. A fun beer to share (just dont share with more than 2 or 3 people, its a small bottle!).

Bottle shared at an Imperial Stout tasting at kerenmks place. Black with a bubbly brown head. Aroma of dark chocolate, soy sauce, wood notes and alcohol. Bittersweet flavor of dark chocolate, a bit of pralines notes, burnt coffee, wood and alcohol. Full-bodied, thick and oily.

Has some intense wood and sweet vanilla scent. Pours a nice black with a tan head, has a nice super smooth alcohol taste with a killer coffee roast and almost light woody/meat flavors. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Found this hidden gem at spirits in point pleasant. Bottle poured into a snifter. Deep dark sludgey brown pour with a almost nonexistent dark brown head. By far the best smelling brew Ive ever had, sweet chocolate, vanilla, dark fruits, cognac, and a touch of alcohol. Taste at first mimics the regular brunch and then some sort of magic happens. The coffee is more subdued and replaced by a sweet cognac flavor layered into dark chocolate and cacao background. Palate is surprisingly smooth with some lingering bitterness and alcohol warmth. Possibly the best beer Ive ever had for quite possibly my favorite brewers. Amazing cheers!

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
