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.

keanex (1799) - Atco, New Jersey, USA - MAY 30, 2012
Poured into a snifter from an 11.2 ounce bottle with no date.

A: Pitch black body with a dark tan, almost brown head that looks menacing. Great looking beer.

S: The civet coffee still comes through with some booze aroma of cognac and oak. Not sweet, nor dry, rather earthy smelling.

T: This is intense, cognac, roasted coffee, and oak hit all at once with a boozy finish. Im not sure what to make of this as its a rush of a lot of flavors at once and as a person who doesnt drink cognac Im not used to the flavor.

M: Thick and syrupy, no carbonation to note, though thats for the best here.

O: This is not worth the huge price (~$15 or so for an 11.2oz) to me, then again Im not a cognac drinker. This is very intense though and I applaud them for making this interesting beer even more so.

drpimento (3450) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 30, 2012
A come-to-jesus beer. Poured at a good temperature with a perfect thick, foamy, blllowy, brown tan head that slowly subsides and lots of lace. Color is an opaque black brown. Aroma is malt, roast, dark ripe fruit, yeast, booze, coffee, cocoa. Flavors like nose with sweet, bitter, and tang all large, but proportional. Body is full, lush, and just right with exactly perfect carbonation. Finish is like flavor, fairly long, and a bit boozy. Taking big swallows and diggin it. Lawd a-mighty, one fiiiine ass beer.

RolkaNation (141) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - MAY 29, 2012
Bottle poured into snifter. Dark opaque black in color, virtually no head. Couldve poured maybe a little more vigorously but almost no head, whats there is paper thin and dark brown. Aroma is great; dark roasted malts, leather, booze, hints of earthy hops, wood, booze. Very typical of the finest imperial stouts. Intense. Taste is very interesting. Plenty of dark roasty malts, surprisingly thin bodied upfront for the style along with some sweetness. Medium is somewhat fruity; dark cherry, figs, etc. The warming alcohol comes near the end along with a nice dry hoppy bitterness and just a touch of coffee. A very diverse, unique taste. Dont pick up too much cognac but I admit that Im not really familiar with that spirit. I wonder if this bottle lost some carbonation though. Good overall. Would be interested to try another.

Bottle. Last beer of the evening, unfortunately may have suffered a bit from numbed taste buds... Pours clear black, with a very small brown head that dissipates fairly quickly. Aroma is strong with notes of roasted malt, chocolate, coffee, alcohol. Taste is very strong coffee backed by chocolate and caramel. I dont really notice the cognac directly, but I do get a warming alcohol finish. Very nice

Dfonorow (2212) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 27, 2012
Pour is completely black with a thin beige head that quickly fades into nothingness. Aroma is of light booze, coffee, and burnt sugar. Flavor is very sweet, almost cloying, with cognac and coffee throughout. Sticky and syrupy mouthfeel.

Idiosynkrasie (7214) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - MAY 19, 2012
250ml bottle. Opaque black with small brown slightly lacing head leaving a thin layer. Intense aroma with coffee, roast, dark chocolate notes, some alcohol with cognac touch I personally do not like that much. Taste is less balanced as in other versions, some tart in the beginning, coffee and chocolate notes are almost completely disguised, a touch of soapy cognac aroma in the finish.
