COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Formerly brewed by Mikkeller at Ngne , Norway, now at Lervig, Norway.
This imperial Oatmeal stout is brewed with one of the worlds 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.

500 ml bottle. Pours black with a large frothy tan head. The aroma is dark roasted malt, dark chocolate, and fine coffee. As we discussed at our tasting, the coffee does not dominate the nose, but instead integrates nicely with the other aromas. The flavor is again very well balanced with nothing being overly dominant: dark roasted malts, espresso, dark chocolate, anise, vanilla, and molasses. The finish has a dry bitterness to it. Creamy smooth mouthfeel. I liked Beer Geek Breakfast and this one is even better.

Bottle at 10am on the day of gears81s wedding, Congratulations Jake!! Very impressed with this tasty brew. Ive recently given up on coffee imperial stouts, but Brunch Weasel it much more balanced than the likes of Jav-ha amongst others. The oatmeal also added a nice creamy body that made this so great. Aroma was a refreshing chocolate and coffee, but not too bitter or astringent. Flavor was creamy chocolate and coffee, with a nice bitterness. A very good brew indeed.

Jet black pour huge frothy chocolate oatmeal looking head with thick lacing. Very nice aroma, big full chcolaty light bitter cocoa powder and hints of butter lots and lots of coffee more espresso like. Palate is a little lighter than I like but is well coated and creamy. Delicious loads of smooth coffee with out the acidic bitterness that coffee tends to provide, lots of chocolate malts lightly sweet so creamy, almost a hint of vanilla in the finish. So rich.. very very good.

Black pour with a tan head. The aroma is bitter chocolate and hints of coffee, but very light hints. The mouthfeel on this isnt my bag at all--pretty lively carbonation and medium thickness at best for an imperial stout. The taste is strongly astringent, especially in the finish. A bit of sweet chocolate right at first, but the middle is bitter coffee with a heavy dose of alcohol and then the astringent finish. Average at best.

LanceUppercut (139) - SWEDEN - JUL 23, 2009
Aroma is of coffe and liqourish. Taste is powerful - spicy, salty, coffee, and is dominated by liqourish and swedish vrtbd. Finish is roasted and dry. A really good IS. Not very complex, but powerful and very enjoyable without becoming overwhelming. One of the best beers in this style Ive had.

Bottle. Black pour with a thin brown head. Malty coffee aroma with some licorice and chocolate. Big coffee flavor up front with some chocolate and licorice before the bitter coffee finish. Very good.

So lets take this beer apart. Brunch Weasel. A great name, I see now that it is a type of coffee but all I could think of was some vermin drinking beer and taking the last piece of quiche. And I wanted to be that weasel. Its dark too, wonderfully brown, like a beer jewel. Then the flavor is incredibly bitter coffee, kind of just like a really strong brew with a little chocolate/malt ganache. Also you get tipsy. This would be a good brunch drink. I see why its rated so highly.

HighWine (954) - Whalezbro, Illinois, USA - JUL 21, 2009
Bottle. Aged at 54 degrees for about 5 months since purchased. Jet black pour with a frothy milk chocolate head. The head fades after a few moments leaving trace lacing on the glass. Great nose. Anise and sugary/creamy coffee. Huge flavor. Big coffee roast without bitterness until after the sip is long gone. Some warming alcohol at first but not overpowering considering the high ABV. Palate isnt as thick as I anticipated. This beer is quite drinkable and has a thin, oily mouthfeel.

Bottle.Dark with large brown head. Coffee and a bit alcoholic. Dry. I actually prefer the Mikkeller Beer Geek Breakfast since it is not that strong. Nevertheless, this is a really good beer.
