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.

330ml bottle. Pours an opaque black with a medium, creamy, long lasting, chocolate brown head that laces nicely. Sweet aroma of roasted malt, chocolate, licorice, vanilla and coffee. Sweet flavour of roasted malt, coffee, licorice, dark chocolate, vanilla and warming alcohol with a dry, bitter, slightly hoppy finish. Medium to full body with a creamy smooth, oily texture and soft carbonation. I’ve been dying to try this one for a while. It was well worth the wait. Delicious.

Zlotta (1314) - Amstelveen, NETHERLANDS - APR 19, 2016
0.33 l bottle from ’Saveur Bière’, best before May 2025. Pitch black with a thin, frothy, almost stable, light brown head. Sweetish, medium roasty and slightly fruity aroma of milk chocolate, coffee beans, vanilla, some caramel and hints of prunes. Sweetish, slightly roasty and minimally fruity taste of milk chocolate, coffee beans, vanilla, caramel, toasted nuts and some prunes, followed by a long, moderately roasty-bitter, slightly warming-alcoholic finish. Full body, very smooth and creamy mouthfeel, almost flat. What a treat! Superbly balanced, unbelievably creamy and very tasty although not overly complex.
