Formerly brewed by Mikkeller at Ngne , Norway, now at Lervig, Norway.
This imperial Oatmeal stout is brewed with one of the worlds 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.

Bottles, many times. Black pour with some mocha head. Coffee notes are most obvious, chocolate, alcohol, roast. Extreme portions, careful balance. World class.

Tonkun (978) - New Jersey, USA - APR 21, 2015
Bottle. Dark, almost pitch black pour with a mocha head that bubbled away relatively quickly. Slow cold drip coffee concentrate, syrup, caramel, oat. Smooth yet full and thick body that may require a spoon to drink. Perfect level of carbonation...not too much but enough to make it refreshing. Bitter, sweet and creamy. Like a perfect cup of coffee

gopherfan99 (767) - CROATIA - APR 21, 2015
Bottle; pours black with a thin mocha colored head; aroma coffee, chocolate, and roasted malt with a hint of dark fruit; taste is very smooth with coffee, roasted malt, and chocolate with hints of dark fruits and oats; finish is bitter coffee and dry; very nicely balanced and hides the alcohol; excellent beer

keanex (1603) - Atco, New Jersey, USA - APR 12, 2015
Undated bottle.
Glass: Duvel tulip.
Appearance: Black body with a dark tan head. The head is short and short lived though.
Aroma: A prominent aroma of wet dog, faint coffee and chocolate, both a bit stale with a bit of cracker and lactose. Possibly old.
Taste: Dark chocolate is mild but provides a dry bitter base with faint coffee and roasted malts, a hint of chocolate sweetness, but overall a bit stale and mild.
Palate: Full-bodied to thick, mild carbonation.
Overall: Possibly an old bottle, or this is much different than I remember. Either way I wont buy this again unless Im sure that its fresh.

Teran (112) - Belgrade, SERBIA - APR 12, 2015
Syrup liquid with tiny brown head. Non transparent at all, very dark. Noble chocolate is dominant plus civecats luxurious coffee, which I never tried, but I think I can say now what is the taste of it. Bitter sweet and strong in alcohol. Just a hint of liquorice and sultanas raisin - or not, I can not decide because od divine complexity born from unique simplicity. Very expensive, but I doubt this type if beer can be cheaper. Simply glorious.

SinH4 (651) - SWITZERLAND - APR 11, 2015
Pitch black color with beige head and huge lacing. Aroma is complex and subtle, the coffee is not too dominant. Very smooth and round taste, and then there?s a spice catch, some booze, a bit warming towards the end. Very slightly sourish indeed. Oatmeal present as well in the texture. Not overwhelmed, but not underwhelmed as well. Probably deserves its Top50 status. Amazingly smooth and balanced. Nice foamy carbonation.

Madsen1635 (381) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - APR 11, 2015
Bottle. Pitch black pour with tiny dark brown head that diminish fast. Aroma is intense with loads of liquorice, coffee and caramel. Still with a freshness to it. Taste is very balanced with no hints about the high ABV. Starts with some coffee and ends with a very long lasting liquorice note. Not sweet, not overly bitter, just very plesent and complex. Oily texture. Medium carbonation.

wiwetu (17) - Warsaw, POLAND - APR 10, 2015
Wspaniały Imperial Stout. Idealnie zbalansowany, dominują nuty kawowe, czekoladowe, karmelowe, przez ktre przebija się lekka goryczka. Ciemne jak smoła i z takowym, smolistym ciałem. Gęsty killer, choć prawie 11% alku wyczuwalne nieznacznie tylko w aromacie. Jedno z droższych piw, jakie zakupiłem, ale warte swojej ceny.

Kauge (563) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - APR 8, 2015
Bottle from Koht. My first and last Kopi Luwak beer... Pours a reddish black colour with a brief tan head. Some tiny bits floating on the surface. Smells like raw coffee beans and chocolate - its really uplifting... sweet with some raw bitterness. Tastes... so full... chocolaty sweet, a lot of coffee bitterness, even a bit salty. Tingling alcoholic warmth in the throat. Sticky, but short of syrupy. Makes my lips stick on the glass. Vinous. Damn good.

Pretty smooth and delicious stout. Deep black pour - thick. Espresso and chocolate. Taste is decadent blend. Slightly sour finish. Balanced well, full bodied. Great!

Serapac (201) - CZECH REPUBLIC - APR 6, 2015
Bottle, Malting Pot. Black, tiny brown head. Aroma coffee, wild cherries in alcohol. Very little carbonation, strong lacing. Taste follows the aroma - bitter, sweet&sour, finish distinctly bitter, mainly coffee. Very nice, but I preferred the Beer Geek Breakfast that I sampled recently. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
