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.

A: Moderately light coffee upfront, with a light roast malt character and fair amount of oak barrel.

A: Black color, totally opaque with a light tan head that recedes to a fine ring in the glass.

T: Moderately coffee, with black licorice-like malts, there is definitely a barrel presence with some char and a very light bitterness.

M: Full bodied with light carbonation. The beer has a nice softness, but the finish is a bit hot and shows some alcoholic warmth.

O: Pretty solid blend of stouts; however the final blend seems to lean toward Amager’s and not Mikkeller’s stout. While the finished product is pretty tasty, the beer could be even better with a more pronounced coffee aroma and flavor to complement the barrel’s presence.

A - Pours black like motor oil with very little head.
S - The aroma is very weak, maybe just a bit of coffee.
T - The taste is coffee forward, quickly followed by coffee bitterness.
M - Low carbonation, medium feel.
O - Sounds good on paper but the results are just average. Thought the oatmeal side of this collab would soften up the coffee side. What really comes thru is the bitterness. Would not buy again.

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.
