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.

Bottled:
Pours black with a weak head. Aroma is sweet, sticky liquorice, nougat and Jägermeister. Flavour is sweet and malty with touches of Jägermeister. Mouth feel is surprisingly thin. Finish is dry and roasty with warming alcohol. Where’s the coffee?

Beerdedone (2901) - Croydon, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 27, 2009
Bottle. Pours jet black with a frothy two finger brown head that left spotty lacing. Aroma of bittersweet chocolate, dark coffee, licorice, roasted malts and has a hint of vanilla. Flavor was rich and roasted with a silky and creamy mouthfeel. Taste was roasted coffee, dark chocolate roasted malts, alcohol, licorice and a touch of vanilla with a slightly bitter alcohol finish. Excellent imp stout

initial aroma of dirty oat sweetness and filthy joe. aroma quickly evolves to strong booze with pseudo wood esters as well. flavor is thick overbrewed coffee, dark pit berry and black cherry. ’5’ mouthfeel, so lingering and filthy dirty, super coating. bottom pour of bottle is ultra chunky mud. alcohol esters in aroma become blueberry as palate adjusts and beer opens.

Pours black into a snifter. Mocha head with good retention recedes leaving spot lacing. Espresso aromas. Sweet creamy chocolate and espresso upfront with a last espresso finish.

Schultsc (572) - San Diego, California, USA - NOV 21, 2009
Thanks, Gerret, for this one. Pours a thick, viscous opaque black with an enormous, thick, loose milk chocolate brown head. Dark caramel malt, alcohol, sweet coffee liquor, and dark chocolate (in that order of prevalence) in the aroma. Rich, robust flavor profile which keeps all of its massive elements in balance. There is a nice earthy funk present here as well that adds valuable complexity to a beer that could have very easily turned out overbearing. This is a pleasant, authoritative, contemplative sipper.

UPDATED: AUG 19, 2010 Poured from bottle into nonic. A - Pours a dark brown, almost black. A really nice light chocolate-colored head that is pretty frothy upon an aggressive pour. The head lingers around a bit and once it starts to disipitate it leaves a good amount of sticky lacing along the sides of the nonic. S - Lots of coffee: really really excellent smelling coffee. Maybe some chocolate in there as well, but the coffee is pretty upfront and doesn’t go anywhere. T - Sweet chocolate covered coffee beans is the main note I get from this one. You can tell the Civet coffee this brew was made with is superb in quality, it’s really good. Nice bitter finish. M - Think, but not too thick. Just right for me - medium bodied. Really smooth and rich with the perfect amount of carbonation. D - An awesome coffee stout, no doubt about it. A little pricey, which hurts the drinkability, but that’s about the only thing that I could think of for me not to drink this one whenever I’m looking one of the best coffee stouts.

Nena (963) - Seattle, Washington, USA - NOV 15, 2009
Poured black with a beige head. Aroma is coffee, toffee, alcohol, and a touch of dried cherry like fruitiness. The flavor is very bitter, coffee dominated, with some chocolate and a bit of piney hop. Has a noticeably warming alcohol finish. Very rich and thick feeling on the palate. Not as awe inspiring as I thought it would be, but this was a unique and great experience.

TeamTrappist (830) - jericho, New York, USA - NOV 15, 2009
Bottle. Poured a deep rich black with a thin beige head. Nose is huge with roasted malts, chocolate, and lots of coffee. Deliciously drinkable with flavors that followed the nose. Rich and full flavored it has more carbonation than one might expect from this style. Great bitter finish.

cexshun (99) - Portage, Indiana, USA - NOV 14, 2009
Pours an opaque black. Rich and creamy tan head lingers for ages. Massive lacing. However, this bottle seems to have vast amounts of sediment. Lost maybe a good 20 5 of the bottle to sludge. Nose is very bready. Yeast and caramel. Strong roasted characteristics. Hint of sweet chocolate. First sip, wow. Coffee coffee and coffee. Chocolate and dark fruits. Very heavy palate. Coats thick and chewy. Carbonation a little sparkly, but not unpleasant. A really great beer. If I hadn’t lost a few dollars of the beer to sludge, I think I’d be much happier with it.
