COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed by Mikkeller at Nøgne Ø, 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.

pours very think, very black. meduim dark brown head disappears quickly. aroma has strong malt and coffee notes that compliment nicely the underlying burnt/smoke smell, def a lil funk to go along from the shitcoffee. the flavor is an immense black coffee malt explosion with hints of smoke, bourbon, chocolate, vanilla, all the good shit(pun intended). the palate is very clean and actually refreshing with only the right amount of black coffee dryness in the finish. damn good beer.

Pours out black with massive head. Smells like coco and coffee. Taste is very roasty, creamy, and bitter. Thick and rich. Flavors of coffee, chocolate, roated malt. Good balance, very drinkable. Some warming from alcohol, but well hidden. Great Imperial stout.

Black with a creamy brown head. This one is a lot like Black but not as thick or sweet. Great roasty, chocolate, espresso, and grain aroma and taste. Nice buttery mouth feel. A really outstanding beer. I really enjoyed thid beer!

Sigmund (4936) - Tau, NORWAY - JUN 12, 2009
500 ml bottle, courtesy of Cardinal Pub & Bar, Stavanger. Brewed by Mikkeller at Nøgne Ø, Norway. Batch #418, ABV is 10.9%. Pitch black colour, huge chocolate brown head. Lovely aroma of dark roasted malts, coffee and chocolate, hints of dark fruits. Intense flavour of coffee (can’t say if the "weasel" coffee was worth the price, though), also a massive malty sweetness and a solid roasty and hoppy bitterness, lasting through the long aftertaste. Not for sissies.

Kestral (506) - Årnes, NORWAY - JUN 11, 2009
Bottle, batch 418. Pours black with a massive dark brown head, loads of chunky, sticky lacing. Aroma has hints of dark fruits, red berries without the tang, yeast, vanilla, loads of coffee, roasted notes, chocolate, salt liquourice, and generous amounts of citrus and floral hops, and as it warms up, some ash. Flavour is massive. Mostly the same notes as the aroma. Long, dry bitter coffee and hop finish. Gets saltier and more bitter as it warms. Mouthfeel is thick, round and smooth. Very good.

Birdiebeagle (958) - Perkasie, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 10, 2009
Bottle Pours a nice black with a good creamy brown head. The head lasts well. Lacing is great. Aroma is great with chocolate, roast, coffee, and a base of oatmeal. Has a light carbonation. A wonderful mouthfeel. The flavor is excellent. A very slight burn from the alcohol but not anywhere near what you might think. The flavors dance on your tongue. Has a full body and a thick texture. The finish is purely awesome with a great lingering aftertaste. Take your time with this and enjoy every last sip. This may truely be beer excellence.

Wowee zowee! holy muthablinkin catshit. This bottle courtesy of Paul B; thankee kindly sir. Poured with a tan head. Some lace. Head and lace disappear after a while, but it’s so good, who cares. Aroma is a coffee imperial stout, but with some lovely floral characteristics that work perfectly. Floral notes aren’t in the flavor, but some malt sweetness is. Sublime. Don’t pick up the alcohol much. All hail Mikkeller!!

hellbilly (3249) - scottsdale über alles, Arizona, USA - JUN 9, 2009
a nice thick near black pour has an orange tinted brown head and all kinds of lacing... the coffee smell is milder than i expected... ashy roasted malt... really roasty... bitter chocolate, dust/oatmeal, a milky/lactic stink and a savory earthy note which i cannot place. the flavor is extremely roasty as well with the coffee playing second fiddle... it is almost bitter but not quite, not sweet but not dry. that same unexplainable savory character carries over into the flavor along with some metal, ash, wood, molasses and light coffee with a nice acidity on the finish. acidity increases as it warms and helps to cut through the oily medium body. not being sweet or cloyingly rich gives it an easy drinking feel... though.... it is missing something... a roundness to bring it all together. 8/5/7/4/16/4.0

UPDATED: JUN 12, 2009 I know I’ve scored this very highly, but looking for places where I could mark this down I really struggled, its that good. It pours a thick oily deep black. The nose is a blast of mainly chocolate, with notes of burnt malt & coffee. On first taste it’s just an explosion of flavour. There’s massive amounts of malt, treacle & choco on the palate & so much power. As always with Mikkeller the finish is a stunner & absolutely huge. Some sweetness, malt, some coffee but also a pleasing amount of bitter malt to keep a great balance to the beer. Drinking this beer is a real experience to savour.
