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.

M-it has a great smooth feel to it, soft and creamy, full bodied with a crisp bite at the finish. D-this is a pretty big stout, the coffee is somewhat muted behind the chalk and ash. great feel to it and hides the abv quite well. good balance shown with the malt

500ml bottle pours an oily, viscous, opaque black with one ring of off white head. Nose is sweet, oats, a little bit of berry, some cinnamon. Flavor is nice, sweet, bread, cinnamon, coffee with cream, berries. Finally I can say I’ve had a Kopi Lowek beer where the coffee really starred. Finish is full bodied with a nice, smooth coffee finish.

500 ml bottle; thanks Tom!! Jet black with thin tan head; rich, thick nose of sweet coffee and chocolate; nose just explodes and this is a pure coffee bomb; texture is thin and almost oily with sweet, dry coffee; nothing subtle here but there is enough sweetness to cover any stringency from the strength; pretty damn tasty, but not really that impressed at the same time

Wow. I was looking forward to this one for a LOOOOONG time and it did not let me down - at all. the coffee flavors come through VERY nicely in the aroma and taste and it goes down very very smooth. No acidity or over-roasted flavor what-so-ever - this is one I could drink all day long. Very very nice. Can’t wait to try it again!!! Delicious!

Balazs (787) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - MAY 7, 2010
Textbook appearance - totally black with brown, lacing foam. There is something unique in the aroma, which is a bit like espresso, but so different at the same time. I attribute this to the Civet coffee which I have never tried otherwise. Deep roasted, molasses, vanilla with mild hoppy bitterness. Dense, thick, oily body. It is as unique as it can get I think. Outstanding!

0,5 l bottle, shared with Balazs, thanks!
Like a black hole with a brown, not beige, brown, sculpture-like, foamy head. Molasses, espresso coffee, caramel and dark chocolate in the nose with plum, raisins and vanilla, lurky hops. Oily density, thick body with unidentifiable dark tastes....Vanilla with coffee, dark and milk chocolate, toffee, caramel, earthy roasted grainy flavor. Deep roasted and spicy aftertaste. Craft beer attack....

Light sucking darkness. Sweet coffee and red berry aroma. The aftertaste is so full of molasses it is like you’ve just been smoking a shisha pipe. Absolutely fabulous.

DeadGirl (478) - San Diego, California, USA - MAY 6, 2010
Pours out deep brown, almost black, and topped with a dark, creamy brown head which dissipates to thin, swirly lacing from the 17oz. bottle courtesy of StFun (thanks, Josh!): Wow. Heavenly! This thick nose carries you into a forbidden forest of luscious hops and raw cocoa nibs. Coldstone creamery angels pitch warm, red velvet cake batter thoroughly into a mix of flavors of succulent blueberries, raspberries, banana, peaches, and oozing caramel. Then the palate takes a delicate turn into mildly roasted oats and bitter chocolate fudge. A soft peak of bitterness at the finish and rounds out smooth, oily, and creamy. Drinkability: A delicacy. Pairing: Pour straight onto a huge pan of freshly baked, special brownies topped with Coldstone cake batter ice cream and a drizzling of caramel syrup. Rebuy: Ehm duh. #440 on 06052010, DG.

UPDATED: SEP 7, 2014 Bottle courtesy of Dallas a few months back, shared with Pat and Andrew. Pours pitch black brown with nice brown lacing. Insane coffee roast, coffee bean, and roasted chocolate in the aroma. Mouthfeel is smooth and silky and sticks to the tongue - notes of bold coffee roast, espresso, bitter chocolate, chocolate malts, and a slight hop presence.
