COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Formerly brewed by Mikkeller at Nøgne Ø, Norway, now at Lervig, Norway.
This imperial Oatmeal stout is brewed with one of the world’s most expensive coffees, made from droppings of weasel-like civetcats. The fussy Southeast Asian animals only eat the best and ripest coffee berries.Enzymes in their digestive system help to break down the bean. Workers collect the bean-containing droppings for Civet or Weasel Coffee. The exceedingly rare Civet Coffee has a strong taste and an even stronger aroma.
Ingredients : Water, malts, hops, yeast and Vietnamese ca phe chon coffee.

UPDATED: APR 20, 2014 Pours black with tan head aromas of heavy roast and coffee. The taste is delicious, rich and bright on the coffee in the foreground. This gives the best coffee stouts a run for their money. The grain is smooth and easy to get around with a large flavor of barley and prevalent oats with a dense body for strength. Some bitterness from the grain comes in with a noticeable green hop flavor. The alcohol is hardly apparent. The beer has a lightly fruity yeast that flows well with the coffee. This tastes like coffee with some grainy sweetness, really good stuff if you like heavily roasted things. Can?t say enough, this is a great oatmeal stout.

Pour from bottle to snifter. Jet black with a towering tan head. Nose of chocolate, earth/bark, coffee, vanilla hints, nuances of caramel/maple. Flavor is dark chocolate, some hop charactaristics, really bright yet earthy coffee, astringency and creaminess from the oats. Powerful yet balanced. Coffee is showcased in the linger, and is, quite understandably, remarkably tasty.

Black body, medium brown head with nice lacing. Aroma of coffee, porto, black chocolate. Taste is intense; it’s medium bitter, burnt, roasted; has a very spicy and slightly chocolate-y aftertaste. Alcohol is very well hidden, despite the 10,9%... Full, creamy body, slightly above average carbonation. A stout probably can’t get much better than this.

33cl bottle, served in tulip. Black colour with a beautiful tan creamy head, looks very good. Aroma is chocolate, coffee and roasted malts. Taste is so delicious, the coffee is amazing, very well blended with the roasted malts and the oats. The chocolate touch is also there but not as much as the smell. Dry aftertaste with some balanced sweetness, very pleasant. Full body, oily texture, perfect carbonation. In short: this is TOP.

sunstoneale (7) - MOLDOVA - AUG 15, 2015 does not count
Smooth aroma of coffee and roasted malt. Taste is chocolate, coffee without being too sweet. Tasty, but nothing really special, especially in the way of coffee - had regular imp stouts with a more pronounced coffee character.

Bottle. Pours black-dark brown color. Wonderfull big brown had which lasts and lasts. Aroma: brett, rum, vanilla, dates, wine. Wow. Flavor: brett is dominating, with again some dates. Coffe and chocolate. Really complex. Actually, slightly high level of bitterness. Mix of biterness, coffe and sourness lasts soo long in mouth. Creamy. Overall: this is great beer. Very complex and for its 11% alcohol very drinkable. Beautiful beast.

Black with thin tan creamy head. Coffee and bitter cocoa. Sweet with a bitter black cocoa finish. Soft carbonation and smooth. Oily to creamy. Good but not overly complex.

Bottle from Ebenezer’s Thick black liquid with a rich creamy mocha head that lasts forever. Huge chocolate and coffee aroma with plenty of brown sugary sweetness to pull this desert beer together. Very rich, nice brew!
