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.

JPDIPSO (5990) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 30, 2017
As close to black as a brew can be. Diminishing dark cocoa colored head. Really a glass coating liquid. Aromas of dark malt and chocolate, light smoke and dark fruits. Hints of oak and alcohol. Light sweet fruit in the front. Middle is loaded with malt, toffee, sweet coffee, and dark chocolate. Cognac works it way in during the finish and linger, with a mild burn at the end. The flavors seem to thin out in the end leaving me looking for some of the excitement found in the front. Still a nice nightcap. 12/12

Comparing to regular version, which Ive drunken few times, this one is more woody, vanilla, brandy notes also bid up some boozy character and intensifies dryness. The regular version also reveals different layer of beer during degustation (which was nice), here you have rather solid brew, but with its specific character. After warming up, yes there is strong cognac influence. Medium to full body, oily and thick texture, soft carbonation, finish is roasted, chocolate, alcoholic and definitely oaky and cognac. Despite lightly boozy character this one is well drinkable. In overall minus for noticeable ABV content and not perfect palate. I think regular version was slightly better. Ok lets say 4.0 !

Guruhso (491) - Grindsted, DENMARK - NOV 26, 2016
From backlog. Bottle at Mikkeller bar. Malty. Aroma of roasted, dark syrup, liqourice, dark chocholate, coffee with wooden notes. The flavour is heavy sweet and heavy bitter with long duration and lingering coffee. Some alcoholic warmth. Full and creamy. Smooth and soft. Heavy yet balanced. Complex. A great beer...

Arcanor (308) - 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.

neongolden (1350) - Linkping, Sweden/Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 27, 2016
(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.
