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.

TET (2207) - Kaarina, - APR 13, 2012
A black beer with a dense, beautiful, creamy and dark brown head. Aroma is great, roastiness, liquirice, syrup like sweetness, some coffee and dark fruits. Full bodied, very smooth to drink, not sticky, enjoyable. Taste is roasted, black coffee, salt liquirice, dry herbs and old, concentrated coffee in the aftertaste. Blessed words are said, but this beer earns them all, very balanced and complex, coffee and roasted IS .

mrjez (123) - Osaka, JAPAN - OCT 13, 2015
Tap at Yellow Ape, Osaka. L: a simply gorgeous looking beer. Jet black, and a cracking small dark tan bubbly head which eventually goes with a tonne of lacing. S: nothing surprising or unusual for an imperial stout, just solid rich dark roasted malt, chocolate, well-balanced notes. T: so big in flavour, strong malt, choc fudge. It stays the same all the way down, zero palate fatigue, full-flavoured till the end. F: really smooth, you can’t taste the alcohol, but the feel is so full and rich you know it’s there. O: wonderful. Really easy to sip for an hour because of the rich flavours.

sonotono (162) - torino, ITALY - OCT 8, 2015
Colore nero impenetrabile, schiuma marrone scuro, cremosa. Bouquet complesso, profumi tostati, caffè, malto tostato, erbaceo e resinoso dei luppoli, anche agrumi, ancora caffè. In bocca pastosa, oleasa, quasi masticabile, sapore forte, intensissimo di caffè, malto tostato, cioccolato fondente, poi arrivano gli amari del luppolo, per finire con un ritorno dei tostati/caffè e un amaro lunghissimo, leggermente astringente. Alcool comunque ben nascosto, equilibrata nonostante i sapori forti. Capolavoro.

NordicV (1449) - Malmö, Sweden, SWEDEN - SEP 27, 2015
Nästan svart öl med inslag av rött. Brunt centimerhögt skum. Rostad malt och kaffe i aromen men kanske framförallt mörk choklad. I smaken så träder kaffesmakerna fram mer men utan att ta över.

A thimble full. Pours a dark brown/black, flat looking with no head. Nose involves a big blast of coffee with some dark chocolate. Pretty sweet, decently bitter. Medium toward full bodied, quite oily, finishing dry and roasty. A coffee bomb, and a cool experience. Glad I didn’t have to plunk down for it.

kurczako (113) - POLAND - SEP 23, 2015
Doskonale zbalansowane piwo. Intensywny kawowy aromat. Piwo oblepia kubki smakowe powodując niesamowite doznania sensoryczne. Goryczka niezbyt intensywna jak na styl. W miarę ogrzewania wychodzi bardzo szlachetny alkohol.

Ty4Cy (9) - Iowa, USA - SEP 19, 2015 does not count
Well balanced, not as strong on the coffee flavor as I had anticipated. Very smooth for the ABV. Excellent beer, not quite worth the $12/bottle regular price, but worth the $6 discounted price :)
