500ml bottle (newer label) with my Stone RIS snifter
Notes taken on 05/24/2015

A: Black as coffee with some dark browning around the edges. Looks semi viscous with no light making it through the body. A smallish layer of fizzy mocha tan head forms for a few moments before slipping out to a small film. Very minimal stick action to this one if any at all.

S: Dark rum soaked raisin hits the nose followed by some light smoky char, leathery tobacco, and cherry notes mixed with some black strap molasses. I get a faint espresso roast to this but not quite as much as I was expecting here. more stouty roadt cereals some alcohol spice and a slight metallic tinge. All in all very dark and roasty which has me fairly excited to dive into this one.

T: Dark dark roast here. Earthy and slightly charred with a rich dark chocolate bitterness and some dark berries. The coffee flavor is just incredible. Epicurean and with such a rich roast providing some green earthy elements. I get a touch of brown sugar and molasses to this but it’s not all that sweet as a hit of bitterness cuts way. Well balanced in that manor with some warming alcohol on the finish. A tasty treat for sure.

M: A touch thinner in body for an Impy stout but with a lower carbonation it still delivers that full bodied experience. Bitter and drying in the finish without becoming to charred or acrid. Slight oily linger but fairly clean overall.

D: A solid coffee stout. I think they did a nice job of blending the two base beers into an individual brew here. Glad I picked this one up for sure. Probably not worthy of a hunt but definitely one to check out. Would have again.

Purchased March 2015 and enjoyed October 19, 2015 in a MadTree tulip/snifter. It is time to clear out some of my stouts. I've had Brunch Weasel and Hr Frederiksen is in my fridge, let's see how this goes.

Look - Very little head. There was a ring for seconds that faded to nothing. Dark brown. No lacing. What head was there is tan.

Smell - Coffee. Char. Bitter hop. Light booze. Strawberry. Dark fruit. Tootsie roll. Chocolate. Vanilla.

Taste - Bitter. Burnt sugar. Chocolate. Coffee. Char. I expect to have sediment at the bottom of this bottle.

Feel - Creamy. Slightly watery. Not overly carbonated but not flat.

Overall - Give me Brunch Weasel by itself. Is it possible I waited too long on this? I am not looking forward to Hr by itself. Bitter.

16oz poured into snifter

L - dark chocolate settling to pitch black in the glass. No head to speak of even with a vigorous center pour.
S - Strong coffee with hints of burnt sugar, caramel and vanilla
T - Bitter coffee, roasted malts, caramel and a hard bite to the finish that is a bit distracting
F - thinned out more than I hoped for from an oatmeal stout. Prickly carb doesn't help the feel eithe

Overall a very well made Coffee Stout. Continuing to improve as it warms

A - A nice looking stout, but not the top-notch appearance that I've come to expect from Mikkeller stouts. Deep brown body with mahogany highlights. Light tan head with nice retention and ok lace.

S - Milk chocolate, malted milk balls, dark roasted oats, and a touch of vinegar on the backend.

T - Really nice. Burnt coffee, smooth porridge, cola, green bitters, cream, and caramel. Touch of hazelnut and vanilla through the finish.

M - Silky smooth with a medium-full body.

O - Fantastic balance with a flavor profile that holds up to expectations for a Mikkeller stout.

4.5/5  rDev +9.8%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Has a completely black pour, with a stable, dense light brown head, revealing small bubbles at the edge of the glass.

The aromas in this come extremely well together, ranging between soft, berry infused milk-chocolate and earthy, slightly charred coffee beans. Its sweeter undertones of caramel and pine needles get gently wrapped up by the toasted, fresh crushed coffee beans. On top of that settle sour wild berries, creating a rich nose, full of different aromas, blending well together.

Almost no carbonation left (1.5 years old at the date of drinking), resulting in a very soft mouthfeel with an almost full body.

Tastes of earthy, toasty malts, together with chocolate-caramel cookie and a good portion of smooth whipped cream. The palate then gets confronted with a pleasant mix of matured, grassy hops and bitter, slightly berry accentuated coffee beans, adding even more earth to the taste. From this, a sweeter maltiness, as well as a gentle sourness, result from the so far established taste impression, smoothed by cream. Finishes with even more earthy, slighty bitter coffee and a slightly slick, long staying bitterness.

The brews earthyness is incredibly well pronounced, directly followed by bitter, berry enhanced coffee, with lots of cream to balance the subtle sourness. All flavors come together incredibly well, highlighting the roasted, bitter earth defined coffee.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Bottle (no apparent date):
Pours a bit thinner then I expected, color little light of black. Head was minimal on a fairly light pour. However the little head that sits along the glass does provide spotted lacing.

Nose is a mild bitter coffee on initial pour, but the beer was just out of the fridge. Warmth slowly brings out a few more scents (strength never gets too strong, though), especially the oatmeal, and brings a chocolatey nature to the coffee scents. The scent reminds me of freshly baked cookies, for some reason.

The opening feel is a little thin, but also nicely silky smooth. Bitterness strength increases slowly in the long taste. The end feel is mildly chalky, however. Overall, despite the feel, I think the depth of the beer adds some body to it, medium.

The taste starts out with a hint of black coffee, but a creamy chocolate flavor is added to the mix fairly quickly. Next to come along is an oatmeal flavor, as well as some woodiness. As the beer warms, the opening tastes gains hint of warm milk taste to it, strangely.

A nice tasting beer. Enjoyed the blend of flavors, and the smooth opening feel. If that feel could've lasted longer and there had been a bit more heft to the body, this could've been top notch.

Pours dark brown/black with a fast-dissolving light brown bubbly foam.

Dark stone fruits, fresh coffee grounds, roast, and some bitter chocolate.

Chocolate, freshly brewed coffee, vanilla, and tons of roasted chocolate malt.

Heavy-bodied, light carbonation, semi-sweet, bitter roastiness.

Overall, doesn't look that great, but the solid aroma and flavor make this interesting.

The beer bottle has a new or different label on it. Never had Hr. Frederiksens before so I'm not sure if I can really detect it really throughout the beer. The beer geek brunch definitely comes through very heavily though.

Dark black beer with a decent head that disappeared very quickly. Some lace was still left on the glass though.

Smelled very strong of dark chocolate and malt. Expected more of a coffee smell, but it kinda lacked on the coffee side.

Tasted very strong of coffee. Chocolate and dark roasted malt come through also. cant believe how smooth it is at 10.7%abv!

Perfect feel through out the whole beer. Kinda thin, but it thickens up as it warms up.

Overall I like the regular beer geek brunch by itself better, but this beer is still almost just as good!

Poured from bomber into a small tulip glass. A very dark black with a thin brown head that dissipates but lingers to the end. Lots of coffee on the nose, with some roastiness. Taste is dominated by an excellent coffee flavor and complimented by a nearly perfect mouthfeel. The high alcohol of the beer is completely cloaked leading to the potential to easily overdo it - like I did. Overall, an excellent stout, nearly, but not quite on par with Beer Geek Brunch Weasel.

Amager / Mikkeller "Hr. Frederiksen Væsel Brunch"

Brewed and bottled at Amager. Imported by the Shelton Bastards. 10.7%. 500ml brown glass bottle with Amager branded silver pry-off cap served cold into a Guinness goblet at high alitude in Castle Rock, CO, and allowed to warm over the course of consumption. Reviewed live as an imperial coffee oatmeal stout per the label.

Expectations are sky high; I adore Beer Geek Brunch Weasel.

No bubble show forms as it's poured.

HEAD: 1 finger wide. Khaki-tan colour. Gorgeously creamy and thick, with a supple soft smooth consistency and a shiny complexion. Full and rolling. Retention is excellent for the high ABV - easily 8+ minutes. Admittedly, it would be more appealing if it were darker and richer, but it's a great head overall.

Leaves a light even coating of lacing on the sides of the glass as it recedes.

BODY: Opaque solid black. No yeast particulate or hop sediment is visible.

Overall, it's a good looking imperial stout, but isn't unique or special. I'm craving the first sip.

AROMA: Oatmeal, dark malts, chocolate malt, milk chocolate, cream, a luxurious roasted barley presence, and coffee - with an ideal level of bitterness. Unfortunately, the coffee isn't as intricate as I hoped for given the use of Brunch Weasel in the blend; it's not roasty or rich, and lacks any evocative java character or subtle burnt characteristics. That said, it does improve as the beer comes to temperature, releasing more interesting aromatics of Vietnamese coffee.

Overall, it's a pleasant aroma of mild strength.

No yeast character, alcohol, or off-notes are detectable. If I experienced it blind, I'd guess this was maybe 8%.

TASTE: Luxurious mocha and coffee notes complement the exquisite roasted barley marvelously. Dark and chocolate malts fill out the body nicely, supporting the mealy oat notes, cream, and subtle milk chocolate beautifully. Slightly burnt, with some subtle dark fruit notes. Subsidiary hints of faint vanilla and caramel. Cakey. Char.

It's very well balanced, though structurally it's sweet in the first half and bitter in the second, lending it an uneven feel. Well-built, with plenty of subtlety and complexity. The Vietnamese coffee lends it some nuance, but I think the coffee's intricacy gets muddled in this blend.

As much as I like it, I do wonder if the whole is more than the sum of its parts; I think I'd enjoy the constituent beers more separate from each other. Or maybe it's just that Brunch Weasel is superior to Amager's component.

No hop profile comes through, nor do any yeast notes.

Good depth of flavour. Average duration and intensity of flavour.

TEXTURE: Creamy, smooth, wet, medium to full bodied, and of ideal thickness. Impossibly soft, lending it an incredible comforting feel on the palate. The smoothening leavening effects of the oats is obvious here, but isn't so extreme as to veer this too close to a porter. Presence on the palate is fantastic, though in fairness it is slightly overcarbonated.

Not oily, gushed, hot, boozy, astringent, harsh, scratchy, or rough. I'm surprised it hides its ABV as well as it does.

OVERALL: I'm always critical of (non-lambic) blends (I'm looking at you, Firestone Walker and The Bruery), and this - while very good - does seem to be muddled and unfocused, and never quite feels like a gestalt whole. I think Amager's component just plain can't hold a candle to Mikkel's Brunch Weasel - which is one of my favourite beers. This is worth trying, sure, but I'm not sure I'd buy it again. It does hide its ABV well, and it's very drinkable, but the toned-down coffee and the surprisingly smooth mouthfeel lend the build some awkwardness. Certainly a dessert beer. Good but not great.

APPEARANCE- Dark dark brown with a hint of red. A thin tan head with only a bit of lacing.

SMELL- A hint of coffee, a whiff of roasted grain, a touch of brandy...a very subdued nose.

TASTE- Surprisingly bitter...burnt toast, bittersweet chocolate, coffee beans, with raisins and toasted hazelnuts on the fInish.

MOUTHFEEL- Somewhat thin but still clinging like a broth.

OVERALL- Good stuff. The bitterness was unexpected, but was a coffee like bitterness, so it was quite fitting. Definitely worth a try.

This pours a dark coffee cola with a cocoa colored foam cap.

I found light notes of raisins and plums, oddly enough, with a hint of rummy booze. It doesn't smell very coffee-like, to me. I get more booze/rum in the nose. The flavor is astringent with some harsh coffee notes come across initially, but mellowing out over time. Sharp roast and a drying finish round things out. At first I found it off-putting but over the course of the sipping session it grew on me.

Pours basically a black body (no dark brown in the light here) with a rather sweet aroma as I get touches of vanilla, chocolate and caramel before my nose is bombarded with roasted coffee malts. While I would say that the coffee is the dominant taste in this beer, it is subdued at times and gives way to a sugary sweetness (vanilla, chocolate, caramel). Balance is good and there is a hearty, dry finish to a rather smooth beer.

very cool beer, one of the worst labels ever (different from the one pictured here). a blend of beer geek brunch weasel with another danish imperial stout, tons of layers to this one. the coffee, which i expected to be front and center, is way back behind a lot of the heavy roasted malts, and honestly i taste it more in the finish, after i swallow, than at any other time. it doesnt come out too strong in the nose either, i am surprised how subtle the coffee, which may well be the most interesting element here, is. tons of roast and girth to this, a little perfume in the nose coming from god knows where, floral out of place, but appetizing nonetheless. the flavor has some sweetness, caramel and dark chocolate before the coffee comes in. minimal bitterness is appreciated, and no acid at all from the coffee. not quite as complex as i was hoping it would be, nowhere near as interesting as the barrel aged brunch editions, but its a damn fine stout as it stands. i think the barrel aged version brings it to life a little more, especially in the feel, but both are excellent. easy drinking for its body and strength, this makes a fine dessert.

A: A finger and a half of dense kahki foam was produced when poured into a snifter. Long retension, the bubbles are small at first but reveal larger as it falls. Pitch black beer with no light coming through even around the edge. Nice lacing with each sip.

S: Clean wood aroma, like walking into a wood shop not the typical oaky barrel aroma. Moderate roasty coffe aroma with a boozy punch in the background. Dark cocoa also detected at warmer temps.

T: A mellow vanilla oak flavor upfront with a solid roasty and dark coffee flavor malt taste blended with a tobacco and burnt sugar (caramelized toffee?) flavor. Chocolate flavors in the after taste are rich and plesent. sweetness is moderate and hop flavors next to zero but the bitterness is balanced.

M: A big chewy body with a cleaner finish. Carbonation is moderate with a low level of alcohol warming. A ashy roast sensation is left on the tongue.

O: I really liked the after taste in the beer with the chocolate flavor being very rich and interesting. The barrel and coffee is very light, probably from being a blend, but if I didn't know it was either I would have thought it was a solid stout.

Bomber size poured to a tulip dark brown near black with a small brown head. Aroma is big earthy coffee, definite hop presence with some pine, chocolate, more coffee. Flavor is interesting with big coffee and pine hops, roast, finishing with silky smooth and sweet milk chocolate. Has a bit of a metallic bent to it. Lingering cocoa and coffee on the palate. Silky smooth mouthfeel with low to medium carbonation and decent heft. Some dry bitterness on the finish. Solid brew, really wasn’t expecting the large hop presence.

500ml bottle poured into a large snifter.

A: Deep, oily black color. Brown head collapses quickly. Tiny dots of lacing.

S: Dark fudge and double chocolate cake. Lots of plum and black currant darkfruit. Blackstrap molasses. Leather. Earthy coffee has a late onset. Vanilla bean. Wafts of alcohol.

T: Black cocoa powder. Dark fudge washes over the palate. Leathery. Mocha. Earthy coffee with a mild acidity fades in and out. Smokey and acrid tastes of heavily roasted malt build toward the back. Black currant. Strong spike of boozy alcohol. Acrid char and dry chocolate cake on the finish.

M: Thick, rich, chewy, and sludgy. Low carbonation. Very weighty. This is a body that means business.

O: Blending two great beers together can only result in something more awesome, right? Not so much in this case. The blend isn't a terrible one, but there's no cohesion or harmony. It feels as though each beer is trying to fight to maintain its own identity, though they have been forcibly attached to each other. The Amager Imperial Stout comes out the stronger of the two, so the blend leans in that direction more.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Incredibly smooth and robust, the collaborative "Brunch" ale between Mikkeller and Amager culminates in a lush and velvety Stout that never discloses its high alcohol.

Its pour is lightly viscous as its black body pours on the glass with a creamy, velvety layering effect. As its cascade settles, the beer releases a creamy and froth espresso-like creme with semi-stern retention and slim lace. The beer prefers a brandy-like legging on the glass as opposed to trailing lace.

Boldly aromatic, the scent of coffee is evident. But not any more so, the notes of chocolate, walnut, and highly roasted barley play on the nose. Cognac-like alcohol aromas emit as does a savory sherry note heading into taste.

Its flavor is bold, robust and masculine. High coffee flavor is met with bitter chocolate flavors for balanced taste. The elements of char, campfire and heavy toast align with slim residual sweetness for a session of dessert-like taste with brandy. A quick vanilla finish is beautiful as it highlights its chocolaty and coffee taste.

But its saving grace rests in its texture. Its sultry-smooth carbonation and residual malts weave into a silky-smooth texture that feels like ribbon gliding across the palate. Finishing warm, the ale is masterfully deceiving in its warmth as cognac strength frames its taste.

Loving this beer, it hides its alcohols sneakingly well. But the malts wrap around the palate for full saturation of flavor for a powerful yet smooth and roasted taste.

This is a blend of Amager Bryghus' Hr. Frederiksen and Mikkeller's Beer Geek Brunch Weasel, called "Væsal Brunch Weasel" at ChurchKey. The keg in particular was 30% nitrogenated, as well. 4 oz. served into a tasting snifter. From notes.

A: Pours a damned near pitch black color. The head is a gorgeous one finger tan shade with fantastic texturing, fantastic duration, and fantastic lacing. I can only imagine what a full serving would look like - even in this dinky serving, it's one of the prettiest imperial stouts I've ever witnessed.

S: There actually isn't too much on the nose. I note roasted barley, subtle coffee, and cocoa powder in particular. This kind of aroma doesn't seem to justify a 4.25 score, but the way it meshes together just boggles the mind. It's like some warped, insane version of a dry stout brewed by angry Vikings ready to plunder America.

T: It opens with some light cocoa powder (as opposed to sweet, fudgy chocolate), transitioning into a coffee midtaste and a soft roasted finish. Where this succeeds isn't the complexity - it's in the top-caliber balance between the handful of flavors featured here. As a pure coffee stout, I wouldn't put in with, say, FBS: this is a different beast entirely, where the coffee quality is a subtle note packed into a big-ass dry stout.

M: This one is beautifully dry on the back end. Think Guinness sans any watery notes, and about 2.5 times stronger without really telling the palate that. This and, incidentally enough, the taster of Black Albert I had earlier in the day, are just about the only imperial stouts I could ever call 'refreshing'.

O: Holy fuck. This is something I could drink all damn day for the rest of my life. What it lacks slightly in complexity it MORE than makes up for in ease of drinkability. Seriously, this is an amazing blend...if only it weren't so damn pricey. If only...

Had on tap at Max's (from notes 6/21/13)

A: Two words: Pitch black.

S: Tar, malt, burnt, roasty and smokey.

T: Talk about hops. I asked one bartender if they had had this before to see what it tasted like and then I asked the one that served me if she had given me the brunch, which she said she did. This really just tastes like a hoppy IPA. I had some mead, a 2.7%/70 IBU IPA, and a saison before this, but I had water and food between them all. I got almost no regular stout flavors like sweetness or malt. It tasted like a black IPA, and the black component of it is the only stout parts you could taste. It was a bit smokey/roasty, but not like a stout. Also, I got pretty much no coffee, you really have to hunt for it and even then it is but a whisper. You get no alcohol burn either. I got very little aftertaste on this one.

M: Very carbonated and crisp.

O: Is this a stout? It was delicious but unlike any other stout I've had before or can at least remember. It reminds me of what fresh bigfoot is to barleywines, just super hoppy and tastes like a dark, malty ipa with some sweetness. This just tasted like a black IPA. Lower Overall just because of Style.

Bottle shared thanks to Mac, tried next to the original and port aged.

The beer pours a nice dark brown to black color, some decent bubbly lacing, Overall good.

Smell really reminds me of brunch weasel, has lots of nice roasty notes and coffee beans, dark scorched earth malts as well. Some black strap molasses as well and dark chocolate.

The flavor also embodies the characteristics of the smell, with beautiful dark malts, dark chocolate, burnt coffee and an overriding sweetness like a too sweet creamer.

The feel is good, carbonated and kind of sweet for the style.

Good but not amazing for me, interesting.

I got this beer in a trade a few months ago. Since then i had it in my beerfridge. Now was the time to open it. Thanks to you Mark!

The beer looks splendid, no other words can be used. The smell is with rich coffee and very well burned malts.

The taste stays behind when i compare this beer with others i had in this style and that is a pity. It is only the coffee and nothing else but the coffee. The bottle was a bit too much to drink for one person. Mouthfeel had some carbonation...
