look: 4.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 5

Has a nose of acidic red wine scents like cherry, oak and hints of vanilla. Theres a hint of chocolate and anise with little to no coffee. The coffee is severely diminished in the taste too. Its much sweeter and fruitier, more acidic in a lambic/sour sort of way. Grapes and cherries blend with chocolate/coffee notes & fade out into an oaked anise wash.

The only negative to me, compared to the original edition, is that the barrel aging seems to have diminished the head a bit so it isn't as thick and laced. I feel that this is a fantastic stout though.

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. Flavor's 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.

Mikkeller
Beer Geek Brunch Weasel Cognac Edition
10.9% ABV
Consumed: 4/2013

Appearance: Black as night and completely opaque in appearance. The brown, frothy head can be coaxed out of the bottle with a proper pour.

Aroma: The aromas of cocoa nibs enrich the roasted malts which are not burnt, but strong and prominent. A slight alcohol presence that's not hot but warm and inviting. There is a definite presence of cognac.

Taste: Roasted malt and chocolate are the first I notice. The chocolate is rich like dark chocolate, but smooth like milk chocolate. The sweetness of this beer, thanks to generous cognac editions, reminds me of chocolate oranges. The beer progresses into toffee, caramel and cream; and then lingers. It becomes very dry and the smooth roasted malt reappears in a slight bitter finish. You can notice the Cognac providing a warm burn on the back of the throat and light oxidation notes that are quite sherry-like.

Mouthfeel: Full and chewy. Medium-low carbonation really helps accentuates flavors. There is a slickness that coats the mouth.

Overall: This beer has a beautiful, brown head and smells delicious. The flavors blend really well and are smooth and inviting. The cognac really adds a nice level of complexity as it accentuates and changes flavors and perceptions. I get a nice sweet,crisp, orange-fruit flavor that resonates well with the chocolate and smooths the roast. Age has been good to this bottle.
The carbonation is just right as well. The FULL and CHEWY body is brought to life with bubbles of carbon dioxide and the flavors really just burst forth and take over the palate. Drinkability is an issue with this as the palate is filled, dried out and slickened by a film of this fabulous beer. After 8.5 oz, I am teased and tempted, but never satiated. At least the drinkability issue is moot. Great beer!

This beer poured jet black with sticky, black lacing into a chalice from a bottle. The smell was of coffee, dark roasted malts, booze, and fruity estery brandy. The mouthfeel was thick and unctuous with depth. Starting with a strong pop of coffee, the flavor shifts from roasts to dark malts to fruity esters to a bit of an alcohol burn, and leaves a strong roasted finish.

This is a wonderful beverage. The cognac and coffee accompany each other wonderfully in this strong stout.
