This is a unique blend of two of Denmark's best imperial stouts. We have brewed Mikkeller Beer Geek Brunch Weasel & Amager Bryghys Mr. Frederiksen separately and then blended the two brews. This has provided a very balanced, harmonious & full-bodied beer. After maturing, the beer is stored in our cold cellar for almost one year.

Poured from 500ml bottle into glass. No bottling date information found on label or on bottle.
Black, opaque colored body. The slightest of dark brown edge when presented to light (less than the width of glass bottom). Thick, tan colored head settles to interrupted cap and ring. Leaves behind webs and sheets of lacing.
Aroma of dark roasted malts and coffee. Also molasses, dark bread, dark chocolate, and vanilla.
Well blended flavors of dark roasted coffee, dark chocolate, milk chocolate, dark roasted malt/bread, and sweeter vanilla notes. Low bitterness, which results in an aftertaste of sweet caramel and espresso coffee. Alcohol is present but not of a burning nature, but rather adds a signature note to the other flavors.
Fuller mouth feel, with a coating aspect to the mouth. Good carbonation support. Rather light at the end of the taste profile.
A true sipper stout. Wonderful blend of aromas and tastes. Label has a sleeping weasel with a leaking, overturned goblet, a chef's knife pointed to a partial leaf, leaves with dew, and a steaming coffee pot.

this is like getting invited to your college girlfriend's wedding and you haven't seen her in a couple of years and you don't know the dude she's seeing but you say what the hell it could be cool and you show up and she looks just like you remember and he's awesome and you're really happy you went. then you find out she has a pet weasel as the ring bearer and it becomes the best party ever.

it's dark and sweet and smooth with a roasted edge and warm. greater than the sum of its parts.

Black in color with no penetration to light. There's a fingernail of brown around the rim and two thirds of the top. Light lacing. The aroma is comprised of sweet bourbon, bitter roasted barley, coffee, and dark chocolate. I'm tasting initially a bourbon flavor with coffee, dark malt, chocolate, and an easier bourbon finish. The mouth is warm with alcohol, thick, and yet oddly smooth from the oatmeal.

Very close to my idea of the perfect imperial coffee stout. I do adore Brunch Weasel and this marriage with Amager seems made in heaven, in the “you complete me” sense. Hr. Frederiksen is a fantastic stout in its own right and makes some wonderful contributions here. It is gorgeous. Perfectly opaque with an elegant toffee head that resolves into lovely persistent lacing that follows the boozy legs down the glass. The aroma has everything you could ask for, dark chocolate, molasses and espresso, enhanced and by mellowed by vanilla and chocolate milkshake tones. I could wax rhapsodic about the taste for a long time. In the interest of brevity I’ll just say that it’s as good or better than any big stout I’ve ever had. Super complex with every note perfectly balanced. If I have any criticism it’s that the sweet overpowers the bitter in the big picture. Nonetheless, a fantastically successful collaboration; thank you Mikkeller and Amager!

A punch of coffee and oat to the palate. Uncompromising, robust, roasty, and a hint of boozy and hazelnut. Got a smokiness in the body. That being said, it isn't as complex as it sounds. Really coffee with aftertaste of some of those other things... sometimes. Just too powerful for me to really get into beyond the feel and look

From a tall bottle, this one is notable. Black and dark. Thick. The head is intensely brown. The aroma is of syrup (almost maple syrup...but malt) Bitterness is intense. Wow. It is heavy, it is thick, it is intense. Full flavor, bitterness. Overpowering in strength. Wow.

Pours a thick, sticky tan head; fantastic retention and lacing. Brew is jet black in a large glass.

Tons of roast and coffee on the nose, along with sharp red grapes and overripe dark fruit to go along with toffee, burnt caramel, and char.

Flavor follows: big roasty imperial stout, thick with char and coffee tones. Earthy, spicy hops. Very slight brown sugary sweetness, pronounced on the back end along with prunes, nuts, and wheat bread; mostly dry, but there's a slightly wet finish. Moderate bitterness, strongest up front.

Medium-to-full bodied; reasonable bite; sticky and full, but not chewy.

By far, this is the best Mikkeller beer that I've had in quite some time - granted, it's not solely a Mikkeller beer, but it's very good.

Lately, oatmeal stouts have been less than appealing to me, so I was slightly apprehensive about this beer - but, I do love Brunch Weasel (the coffee and chocolate are out of this world). The Væsel Brunch has these same characteristics, but in a slightly more subtle, less noticeable way. Brunch Weasel is still my preference of the two, but Væsel Brunch certainly is a good beer and probably one that you could drink quite a lot more of (I mean, if you make a habit of drinking 10%+ beers on a regular basis).

Pours an opaque dark brown color with khaki colored head. Cocoa, roasted malts, earthy, and bread on the nose; follows onto the palate. Full bodied. Finishes with bittersweet cocoa and roast.
