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.

Black colored beer with a thiny small brown head leaving only a thin creamy layer. Aroma of fruits (prums) and coffee. Taste: coffee, fruityness and caramel. Dry bitterish finish. Excellent coffee stout.

Hmmm...I can understand why peeps are so down with this high viscosity beverage. I adore coffee stouts and this one is certainly worth the opening, however, it is not the best I have had. Extremely dry, check; nice coffee and espresso flavors, check; worth $14 for 17oz bottle--no sir.

Bottle from Foodery II in Philly. Split with JRedmond and PatrickFannon. Pour is a perfect pitch black with a thick mocha colored foam atop - leaves a ton of lacing all over the glass. Smell is a espresso, cocoa, peppers.. some heat from the alcohol. Delicate but bold taste. A real treat.

bottle..Jet black pour ,creamy beige head , good lace . Aroma of coffee , chocolate and roasted malts . The flavor is sweet upfront , chocolate and citrus and gains dryness and coffee bean/dark chocolate bitterness . Flavors are all strong but meld together well . Medium bodied , low carbonation .

500 ml bottle @ Olutravintola Pannuhuone. Rated @ 4.6.2010.
Pours a lovely black colour with a creamy beige head. Excellent aroma with notes of coffee, dark chocolate and licorice. Rich and sweet taste with roasted malts, dry hops and roasted coffee. Full bodied, creamy and oily texture with low carbonation with a dry and warming finish. Pleasant brew.

Bottle obtained in trade from atxdelivery. Dark brownish black pour. Thin head. Aroma is earth, booze and straw. Taste is chocolate, burnt coffee beans, black licorice and booze. Wonderfully complex with an oily mouthfeel. Very unique.

Man... waaaaay too late to be hitting this up. Cracked at 1:36am. Thick oily goop slid out into my glass leaving a small yet fluffy dark brown head and excellent spotty and silty lacing. I left the distilled Civet at the bottom of the bottle. I heard if you eat that you get really messed up. Big soft aroma of chocolate, biscuit and small rodent loaf. Vanilla, light spice, random faint funkiness, oatmeal and something yummy that is somewhat burnt. Mmmmmmm so much rich chocolate and oatmealiness in the taste. Totally acceptable roasted coffee which is smooth with massive aftertaste. A bit of alcohol I think - more so tied in to the stiff long lasting bitterness. Soooo damn good this is. I’m pretty sure I can taste whatever hops are used in this viscous concoction. Big oily mouth feel, and endless doses of bitter chocolate and coffee in the aftertaste which goes on and on and on. Damn, here I am already near the bottom of my glass and lo and behold - this beer is loaded with a colossal amount of dark matter in my beer. Has the whole thing been like this? Should I have finished off the entire bottle in 15 minutes? Did I need all of that salsa and hot sauce an hour ago? If someone lights a match in here we all die. Great beer, excellent all around, every sip was satisfying yet I did not make cumsies in my underroos.

Appearance is very attractive maybe the best looking beer i have ever seen. Jet black with a thick and creamy inch thick tan head that is not going anywhere. The beer smells exactly like the coffee i drank all across Vietnam. There is also a good wack of chocolate and some toffee/caramel, sugary aromas. Maybe some raisins as well and subtle spice, cinamon etc Very creamy and smooth mouthfeel like most of Mikkeller’s brews this one seems to turn that smoothness up a notch. aromas translate well to the flavours on the palate there is a slight alcohol finish with good bitterness. The flavour hangs out all day in your mouth its awesome!!!

Pours engine oil black with pillowy, meringue head. Aroma is roasted hazlenuts, dark berries, chocolate and freshly roasted coffee. Wow. Flavours are sweet roasted malts upfront, developing into rich, dark berry sweetness, Mikkeller malt character (fudge, vanilla, peanut brittle), and a soft, lightly bitter coffee finish. Mouthfeel is perfection. The coffee is lovely - very little bitterness, heaps of chocolate, earth/oak and dark fruit character. 10.9% ABV is barely noticeable. A freaking masterpiece.
