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.

Pours jet black with a decent brown head, shows light carbonation. Aroma is dominated by coffee grounds, a touch of sweetness, some booze and soy sauce. This stuff smells great. Drinks smooth, good carbonation and nice full mouthfeel. Lingering bitterness in the finish, almost biting. Gets better as it warms up. Another good one from Mikkeller.

UPDATED: OCT 17, 2012 22oz bottle in a tulip glass. Pours black with a thin beige head. Aroma of coffee and chocolate and some hops. Flavor of some roasted malts and coffee. Slight bitterness in the finish from the oatmeal flavor. Thick texture. An incredible beer with a unique flavor because of the coffee. Update - Oct 2012: Finally got to try this again. Still incredible, with a lot of coffee.

Et enormt och härlig smutsig skum formas i glaset. Doften är inte så komplex som jag hade förväntat mig, men heller ganska enkel, lite syrlig och med härliga kaffetoner (Vietnamesisk ca phe chon-kaffe, aka bajskaffe). Det första jag reagerar på när jag provsmaker är hur torr den är. Torr men ändå fyllig. Stärk kaffe blandat med något lite småsyrligt (vinteräpplen kanske). Hursomhelst är det en mycket välbalanserad öl. Eftersmaken är ganska mild, men ändå full av smak. Denna ölen är fantastisk lättdruckit.

Bottle. 22 oz. Drunk by my lonesome for my 666th rating, Fitting that I should be rating such a dark, smoky, literally-shit brewed beer. Pour is solid black coffee with a thick, creamy,frothy roast head. Aroma of bitter-sweet dark chocolate, portabello mushroom, fresh roast espresso, bitter-sweet cocaoa nibs, toasted malts, vanilla, soil, and a bunch more espresso. Full bodied with a thick, velvety, sticky, viscous sludge palate. Creamy and smooth through the finish with a sublte, embracing warmth. Excellent Imperial stout.

Pours pitch black with an almost black head. Not very good retention. Massive roast malt coffee & hop aromas.
The flavour is MASSIVE roastiness, which just doesn’t quit. Lingers for ages. Deep, rich, complex and satisfying.

Had the fine Nogne Imperial Stout last night, and now the scandalous Beer Geek Brunch. Life is pretty good I guess. Dark dark brown opaque pour with darker than most full-inch head. Heads bites pillowy marshmellow. First sip: this is some good ass beer. The coffee flavor is beautiful and like some ancient truth. I need to reacquaint myself with the Wake and Bake, which I remember loving, but remember not being nearly so rich and whole. Mouthfeel of this beer is amazing: imagine a better dark chocolate syrup than you can imagine stirred lovingly by virgins into the finest whole milk of the finest hindu cows. This beer is stupid good. Assertive bitter aftertaste. Suggestion of Caramel as it lingers. Something else in there -- bit of cedar citrus maybe from the hops. Rewards as much concentration as I can muster, which is to say complex I suppose. As it warms the bitter shades to sour with hints of dark red fruit. I could go on but this song is already too long.

Wonderful sweet dark malt and coffee aromas. Deep brown color and thick dense light brown head. Very rich and smooth. The coffee flavor has a nice smooth character, not burnt or astringent. With age I could see this picking up some sherry flavors that would blend nicely. The oatmeal helps with the smooth, creamy texture. Very tasty beer. The one flavor and aroma that is missing from this beer is alcohol. For a 10.9% beer, there is no evident alcohol in the nose, flavor, or palate. That’s no small feat. I need to go buy more of this and stash it in my beer cellar for a few years.

Pours deep black with creamy tan head. Aroma is big bittersweet chocolate, burnt caramel, coffee, and roasted malt with some earth. Mouthfeel and carbonation is perfect, very creamy and lightly carbed. Taste is big chocolate, caramel, toffee up front leading into big coffee with a slight astringent taste, finishing very bitter and creamy from the oatmeal. Great brew, would drink this all the time if I could.

Very strong chocolate taste. Creamy and has the texture of something similar to syrup. Taste stays in my mouth for awhile. A decent beer.
