Small, 250ml bottle purchased from Beer Cartel in Sydney.

Yep, it looks like the others in the series. Deep, dark black, with a crackling, and very dark chocolate brown head formed mostly from the perturbation of the body. Body is chewy and thick, and despite the apparent lack of true head, contains some fine dark carbonation. Moreover, swirling gives some serious legs and the fluid slides slowly down the inside of the glass. Awesome looking beer.

Nose is everything you want in a BGB beer. Big, rich and fluid, with soft tones of toffee and chocolate, and piquant tones of coffee and a spiciness like capsaicin. What's more, it's full, thick, rich and juicy, and caresses and embraces your nostrils with its sinuous potency. There's a volatile bite to it, quite possible from the cognac barrels, but the cognac doesn't provide too much flavour of its own—it just lets the wonderful flavours of the beer express themselves on their own.

The taste is just as good. Big, potent roastedness, with a sharp coffee overtone, all mellowed by the exceptional smoothness the comes from the residual body. Here, the cognac is perhaps a bit more noticeable: when the back end drops out a little, I'm left with a fragrant, biting and yet ephemeral spirit character: just like a refined brandy. It gives it a bit more oomph, and a touch of uniqueness.

Feel is everything you want. Smooth, but clear. Rich, but with a lilt and dance to it. It sensuous.

Overall, this is again excellent stuff, from an excellent series, from an excellent brewer. I feel a bit like this is a less distinct entry in the Beer Geek Brunch range, but that just means it's close to its rich, enjoyable core.

8.5 oz bottle into a snifter.

Poured a non-translucent dark black color. Not much in the way of any head with the exception of a deep mocha colored ring of lace around the glass. The smells don't seem to be heavy of a coffee roastedness or the maltiness of a heavy stout. It actually has a worn out hop aroma of dish soap. There is a slight smoke scent. If blindfolded and asked based on smell what sort of beer this is, I wouldn't in this lifetime consider a cognac aged stout. The tastes replicate the smells. There is not a strong malt forwardness to it. There are slight hints of cognac, but definitely not prevalent. The mouthfeel is very light. The coffee is subtle and questionable. A very underwhelming beer. Having tried a Goose Island Bourbon Coffee earlier in the night, I might have been spoiled. But given the price of this 8.5 oz bottle compared to that of a bomber of Bourbon County, I would have expected more from this one. Once again, the inconsistency of Mikkeller beers makes me question my next purchases. Recalling previous tastings, I prefer Beer Geek Breakfast over this one.

Cheers!

Poured from a 8.5 oz bottle into a Half Acre snifter.

A- pours black with a 1 finger brown head. Some small blotches and bubbles of lacing on the glass.

S- some roast and coffee, peat, alcohol.

T- roasted malts, lots of peat, not sure why but the cognac adds nothing to this beer and actually detracts for it. Brings out the peat with some alcohol flavor added.

M- medium body and carbonation. Thinner feel with a small warming feeling at the finish.

O- very disappointing beer. Didn't know the price of this beer until after I paid, so my bad. They couldn't of R & D'd this beer because they would have never mass produced it. If you have any inkling on buying this beer, Don't!

250ml capped bottle split into snifters with the brother...

A: Oily viscous dark pour...minimal head with good sticky lace and legs.

S: Stinky cognac and spirit notes pour out of this thing...there is a sensation of smoke buried here as well, with hints of peat and even scotch.

T: Rich silky chocolate...rich red and white wine notes...vinous, with a touch of alcohol burn on the finish. Vanilla sweetness pops out as this thing warms up. Hints of woody character and coffee underneath.

MF: Smooth moderate-to-full mouthfeel with lower carbonation levels and a vinous, sticky feel.

O: This thing definitely tastes better than it smells...initially very off-putting (to my nose) but a pretty well balanced palate.

epic, but not as nuanced as the calvados edition i dont think. it pours as syrupy and black and thick and sticky as ever, and it has the same bubbly mocha head, but the nose doesnt have that fruit element. it has sweet liquor to it, rather than rotting apples. it has the same espresso nose and taste, but i find this one more dry, sucks every drop of moisture out of the mouth and leaves a bitter coffee sting. i like the body, huge as anything, and a lot of residual sugar, which i dont think hurts anything. i think the calvados edition is in a separate league, but this is damn good. i liked the black hole cognac edition better than this, because the alcohol is tempered more, and the roasty vibes run the show. either way, an exquisite beer you dont get to have everyday, so if you are so fortunate, please appreciate this masterpiece.

A: The beer is jet black in color. It poured with a quarter finger high mocha colored head that gradually died down, leaving lacing on the surface and a thin collar around the edge of the glass.
S: There are aromas of chocolate and cognac in the nose.
T: The taste has more prominent flavors of cognac; these are much stronger compared to the aromas in the nose. As the beer warms up, flavors of coffee and chocolate also become apparent.
M: It feels a little shy of medium-bodied and very smooth on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation. There is some warming from the alcohol.
O: This beer is quite easy to drink because the alcohol is very well hidden from the taste. The cognac can be a little overpowering at first but if you let it warm up the flavors will be more balanced.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Pours with no sense of clarity - a thin light brown cap fades out to a dense retaining ring, nice boozy lacing.

Pretty massive nose... syrupy plum qualities, creamy latte, soft chocolate, figs, faint caramel, extreme sense of balance, well incorporated booze character.

Cognac plays a wonderfully dominant role. The coffee has faded slightly into bitterness, maple syrup, overripe cherries, goes surprisingly well with a bowl of spicy wild rice soup!

This is one of those beers that doesn't need to be drinkable - it's a dessert beer - the feel is excellent and finish is rich and bittersweet. Delicious.

250ml bottle 10,9% Abv.
Served lightly chilled in an over sized wine glass.

Appearance: This looks pretty much identical to the Cavados version - pitch black body, topped by a good sized mocha colured head. The head lasts pretty well and leaves some patchy lace, while a swirl coats the glass in heavy yellow tinted alcohol legs.

Smell: Wow, the Cognac is noted right away dominates the initial nose alone with oak and a vanilla note. As the beer warms, the base beer begins to emerge, with notes of dark caramel, dark fruit, dark chocolate , a little coffee and a touch of liquorice. The nose is certainly more boozy than either the original Brunch Weasel or the Calvados version.

Taste: The initial flavour is quite sweet, with notes cognac, caramel and vanilla. Warming brings out some dark fruit, some roasted malt, a little chocolate, a light nutty note and a touch of coffee. The finish is moderatly bitter and quite dry. As with the nose, the flavour is fairly boozy, but stops just short of being bothersome.

Mouthfeel: The body is fuller than the Calvados (medium full as opposed to just over medium), but still not as good as the standard version. The carbonation is of a medium level and super creamy.

Overall: Interestingly, I thought the Calvados version could have used a little more barrel character, but I think this version has a little too much. Don't get me wrong, this is a delicious beer, but I think the Cognac overpowers the quality coffee of the base beer.

A: Pours an opaque jet black in color with some dark reddish brown highlights at the edges when held up to the light. The beer has an eighth of a finger dark mocha (almost brown) head that quickly reduces to a thin film at the edges of the glass. Minimal amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate to strong aromas of dark roasted malts, bittersweet chocolate, coffee, and cognac. There are lighter notes of oak and vanilla along with some sweetness.

T: Upfront there are strong flavors of coffee, bittersweet chocolate, milk chocolate, and cognac. There are lighter notes of oak, vanilla, and dark roasted malts. Very enjoyable.

M: Medium to full bodied with low to moderate amounts of carbonation. Smooth, slightly creamy, lightly dry in the finish, and with just a touch of alcohol warming.

O: Very enjoyable but this is definitely meant to be a slow sipping beer to be savored and enjoyed. This beer is great and the barrel aging in the cognac barrel merely adds to it, making it even better. Alcohol is relatively well hidden which is surprising for a beer this big.

Pours a dark black with brown edges and a thin, coffee-colored ring on haze. Definitely getting those typical Weasel aromas of intense coffee, dark malt, and chocolate, with a touch of oak. Not really getting any of the Cognac here. Luckily, the Cognac character shows up nicely in the taste. More strong coffee, dark & sweet malts, chocolate, and rum-soaked raisins. Sweet, rich, and definitely decadent. Mouthfeel is big and full, velvet-smooth, with a full body and fairly low carbonation. Overall a really nice take on the Weasel, but definitely pricey at +$16.00.

A - Thick, motor oil black. Thin light tan head is strangely uncharacteristic of a Mikkeller stout.

S - Oh man, great nose. Round booze frames caramel, milk chocolate, old wood, buckwheat honey, toasted hazelnuts, and white chocolate.

T - Mellow and incredibly smooth. Chocolate liquor, soft roast coffee, caramel, and damp wood. Dry, white chocolate and Popsicle stick finish.

M - Smooth, full bodied frame.

O - Stellar integration with surprisingly great drinkability.

Pours black and thick. Very thin brown head. No real lacing. A heavy looking imperial stout.

Smells wonderful. Subtle coffee and cognac notes. Very well-blended. The barrel notes are sweet, buttery rich cognac. Sweet and rich dark chocolate. Medium roast and caramel.

Really nice. Sweet but not cloying in the least. Caramel, roast, dark chocolate, lightly grapey cognac, a touch of oak tannin, fruity coffee. Lasting finish.

Thick, coats the palate with layers of flavor.

Wonderful imperial stout. I'm really enjoying this beer. The regular Beer Geek Brunch is one of my favorite stouts and a top two or three coffee stout, and this is an improvement on it. Delicious.

Bottle from Blind Tiger in NYC. The beer is black with a dense, dark beige head. Plenty of lacing left on the tulip. The aroma offers dark roast, dark chocolate, oak, coffee, light cognac. Rich and silky smooth. Cognac character gains strength as the beer warms, lingering in the finish. Overall, another fine variant of Weasel.

Poured from a bottle into a snifter, the beer is a very dark, blood-tinged molasses coloring withhh a thin bubbliiing around the edge of the surface. Aromas are rich and strong, with boozey overtones highlighting lots of different characteristics. Woody, burnt, and earthy blends throughout, with cedar highlights and coffee/chocolate undertones. Very dynamic nose. Flavors are dark and surprisingly subtle for all the action on the nose. Roasted blackstrap molasses forms a strong backbone, with bitter coffee/espresso highlights balancing the boozey cognac impressions. Earthy, warming feel in mouth leading to a chocolate and boozey aftertaste. Smooth, rich finish with a rich cognac linger. Very smooth and extremely warming.

250ml bottle poured into tulip 7/8/12

A pretty black with just a sliver of a cola edge when held too the light, thick dark mocha foam hangs on for a minute ending up as a thin film on half the glass, no lace though

S coffee's strong for sure, smokey woody notes, some cognac but the booze is in there too, bakers chocolate, coco powder and some brown sugar, my only complaint is some heat on the nostrils

T much like the smell but stronger where it needs too be and the booze is better concealed but still there, the woody smokiness mixes well with the coffee and chocolate and the cognac barrel works wonders for it

M thick, rich and sticky on the lips, could use a little more carbonation and there's a little heat but it's mellow, long finish and has a little bitter bite

O pretty tasty stuff without doubt, just a little booze popping here and there but some time will fix that

just needs too mellow out a little and this one will be a real winner, not cheap but I'm happy I've got a few more too age

Reviewing the Beer Geek Brunch Weasel (Cognac Edition) from Mikkeller.
Score: 82

2012 vintage bottle served in a snifter glass and enjoyed on 07/30/12. A hearty thank you to Bryan Hernandez for buying me a bottle of this to celebrate the completion of the Illinois Bar Exam.

Appearance: Pours a deep, dark coffee color. Served with a finger of fudgey brown head that totally settles. No lacing or retention. 3.5/5

Smell: Sharp, sweet red grape and cherry aromas. Cognac, ample "wood" and "barrel" that is not very blended into the aroma so much as it stands out. Coffee too. 3.5/5

Taste: Burnt, acrid coffee, "barrel and wood" flavor, cherry, red grape sweetness and fudge. Sweet and overly acidic. 3.5/5

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied, minimal carbonation. Sticky, acrid and sweet mouthfeel. 2/5

Overall: Rather than it being an integrating component, I am tasting/smelling too much "barrel" here. This beer is also way too acidic. The right flavor components for a potentially delicious beer are here, but there are too many pieces that do not seem to coalesce so much as they simply stand out. After this beer, I think I'm absolutely done with Mikkeller beers. Beer Geek Rodeo (a collaboration with Jester King) gave me hope, but Mikkeller is quite frankly entirely too expensive for what they are and they seem to miss substantially more often with their experiments than they hit. 8.5 oz's seems like a cheap sized pour, but I assure you it's harder to finish a bottle of this than you would otherwise believe.

Recommendation: Skip this one; it is incredibly overpriced.

Pairings: Green apples and honey.

Cost: $14.99 for an 8.5 oz beer.

Serving type: bottle

8.5oz bottle into AVBC snifter.

A: Pours near black with a finger of dark mocha colored head that slowly faded into a thin film and collar.
S: Sweet notes of brandy mix well with rich notes of dark chocolate, kopi luwak, and roasted malts. I get a hint of caramel as well.
T: Follows the nose with mellow notes of cognac mixed with hints of Indonesian coffee, dark chocolate, fudge, caramel and roast. Cognac mixes well with the base flavors, and the coffee more noticeable than the calvados version. Sweeter than I was expecting too.
M: Thick bodied, syrupy viscous mouthfeel, and low smooth carbonation.
O: Not an improvement on the original but a damn fine well made imp stout. Better than the calvados.

A nip into a matching Mikkeller teku glass. An aggressive pour yields just about a finger of mocha head atop the brew. It appears pitch black in color with just the finest ring of brown clarity around the edges. As the cap fades, it leaves some spotty lace sticking to the glass. I am a bit disappointed to see that chunks of gelatin made it's way splashing into my glass. Considering this was only a nip bottle, one would hope/expect it to be filled with consumable product not a layering of gelatin.

The aroma initially displays some vinous quality from the cognac. However, as the brew breaths, more of a focus on earth and coffee with some chocolate come into play. The 10+ percent alcohol is felt in the nose drawing back to the focus on fruity alcohol esters as the brew opens up. Additional sniffs bring out some roast to ashy quality with a touch of something almost like soap.

The flavor of this brew is really bold. The alcohol is not restrained at all. That nearly 11% abv is really fortified with a boozy vinous quality that is solvent at times. The roast provides its own level of harshness that brings out almost a soapy flavor that I faintly picked up on towards the back of the brew. There is some earth, tobacco, leather and ashtray throughout this brew. It finishes big and boozy with cognac and solvent alcohol.

This is a medium to fuller bodied brew with a modest amount of carbonation that is pretty spot on for the style. It is very aggressive and unfortunately not a treatment I would pick over the base brew. Instead of adding an additional layer to the already awesome base, it instead muddled the original character and dominated it with a huge solvent blast of fusel alcohol. I am overall disappointed with this brew. Not only for being duped into the cost of this but to find gelatin in this is not acceptable. Unfortunately this is not the first time I have been turned off by finding an unacceptable amount of gelatin in my glass.

With a taste of Irish coffees but done so with a beery and exacerbated character, this Weasel of cold espresso with cognac peaking through delivers it all.

With it's espresso appearance, the beer carries added viscocity for a voluminous pour of malty weight. Even the low lying carbonation eventually amounts to a delicate lace of espresso-like creme. Onyx black with a mirror-like sheen, the beer is very impressive despite its slight bubble action.

Bold booze aroma layers on top of the strong foundation of malt as the aromas of strong espresso roast rise first, but then the alcohol scent of fruit and wood whiskey follow closely behind. Background notes of cherries, chocolate covered raisins, brownies, and malted milk inform the alcohol and coffee just before the first sip.

Strong espresso flavors hit the tongue with a burst of palate-wrecking flavors. Freshly ground espresso beans, cold pressed, and blended with cocoa powder, burnt molasses, and malty chocolate cake batter lay a rich foundation with a truly masculine flavor profile. A quick rise of the cognac slices through the malts with the power of ethanol, cherry-like fruit, and a complex bitter-sweet interplay. The strong fruitcake-like fruits seem covered in bittersweet chocolate and accompanied by bitter oily walnuts.

The more elegant flavors of the stout are short lived while the palate explores the taste, largely because the shear volume of alcohol burn that rises quickly and settles late. Obtuse alcohols cause a thinning reaction that makes the beer seem thinner than it actually is. A long, long, long finish of espresso, chocolate, and fruity alcohols blend in seamlessly with the next sip even if minutes later.

Cognac Weasel is a long and savory sipper that's meant for a patient session, deep reflectance, and succulent enjoyment.

A: Pours jet black with a mid-sized dense medium brown head. Bordering on dark brown. Fades slowly, leaving a smattering of lacing.

S: Rich aroma with lots of fruity cognac and oak. Some char and coffee as well. Finally, a bit of chocolate and anise with some stinging alcohol. Mainly dominated by the cognac here.

T: Big cognac flavors up front. Loads and loads of oak and char follow. Just hints of roasted malt character with a bit of coffee and chocolate in the finish. Fairly hot.

M: Heavy, smooth. Touch drying from all of the charred wood.

O: Barrel dominates extensively here. Not necessarily bad, cognac and oak character are very pronounced and tasty. However, there is almost no stout to this. Especially not the coffee that dominates the other beer geek breakfast/brunch brews.

Excellent beer belying its somewhat average appearance. Poured thick and black, but the thin tan head vanished quickly. That was the only negative. Cognac, burnt sugar, chocolate and coffee were heavily present in both the aroma and taste. Slight bit of alcohol on the finish, but not enough to affect the flavor. Very creamy mouthfeel. A sipping beer ... wish I had a few more on hand.

A: Pours a thick, gloopy, viscous black. With a very vigorous pour a one finer tan head forms. Recedes to nothing, and very still and lifeless. Pretty much as expected for a thick stout.
S: Toasted malt, chocolate, really sweet toffee. Charred wood, smoke and ash.
T: Oh man, sticky, sickly sweet toffee. Cloying in that regard. Smoke and ash charred wood. Hot lingering alcohol.
M/D: A full viscous body. Sticky, thick, and like an adhesive on the tongue. Sickly sweet, sticky, hot solvent like alcohol makes this a chore to drink. This will be another expensive drain pour from Mikkeller.

OK, Mikkeller is becoming more and more like BrewDog. Which is not a good thing. I did not enjoy this, and would not recommend. Avoid.

Nip picked up from Wilbur's in Ft. Collins, CO for around $11 I think? Into an Epic snifter.

A: Pitch black, practically no head, just a light ring of bubbles. No lacing to speak of. Completely opaque.

S: Big cognac and dark fruit, oak, coffee, and sweet molasses. Strong chocolate and grape notes combine to make an interesting aroma.

T: Barrel is the dominant flavor here, which is sad, I figured there would be a lot more coffee in here. Some chocolate, a lot of cognac, a little coffee and a little toffee. Finish is acrid and dry, almost overly oaky and woody. Not bad, but disappointing.

M: Very slight carbonation, slightly warm, but not hot, not as thick as I'd like. Not bad, but not great.

O: Very disappointed in this one, the harsh acrid finish kills everything in this beer for me. The oak and cognac just bludgeons aside a tasty imperial stout leaving a harsh unbalanced beer. Definitely not worth the money. Definitely a beer that didn't benefit from the barrel treatment.

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.

Pours an absolutely beautiful inky sable with a thick, dark tan head that hangs around for a while. Rich aroma has a strong note of quality roast coffee and tones of licorice, molasses, chocolate and nuts. Fabulous flavor lives up to the scrumptious aroma - smoky, nutty, with good tones of coffee, chocolate, licorice and wood and an underpinning of cognac that gives it quite a kick. Thick, smooth, oily texture doesn’t have much fizz, but leaves a smoky and cognac-y finish. If you love good stouts, especially barrel-aged ones, this one is a must!
