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.

Bottle. Very dark brown pour, with a small light brown head. Roasted, Coffee and chocolate aromas. Taste is pretty straight forward, roast malt, coffee, bitter coffee and dark chocolates. Just an accent of rolled oats. Some piney hops in the bitters in the middle and finish, but only a little. Soft bubbly, but very solid mouthfeel. Maybe a little better than the breakfast, but not much.

UPDATED: JUL 24, 2009 Bottle courtesy of Pimpp. Aroma has notes of red wine, dark dried fruits, coffee, and resin hops. Black hue with small brown head that mostly diminished and left no lace. Flavor is sweet and finishes bitter. Palate is full bodied and oily soft. Not bad for weasel shit. Good robust roasted impy. Nice and unique.

Thanks to Gypsy19 for sharing! ~Pours black with firm brown foamy head that last. ~Metallic scent, sweet, wispy, roasted coffee, and molasses. A little on the lighter side. ~Rich chocolate malts and coffee flavor. Sweet, but nicely balanced with coffee bitterness and dark chocolate. ~Mello creamy feel. Nice bitter sweet finish. ~Lacks in scent, but makes up in everything else. Very memorable brew. Well done Mikkeller and thank you!

Pour is ultra dark brown, bordering on black with a brown head that was thick and a bit persistent. The aroma was well done. Rich, roasted coffee dominates with lighter hints at chocolate and licorice. The flavor is a nice balance of roasted coffee beans and chocolate. The coffee didn’t taste burnt and the chocolate didn’t taste artificial. The mouthfeel was medium bodied and easy drinking. Just a small hint of warming alcohol that was quite at home right at the end of the palate. Very nice.

Bottle and Liquid Sunshine VI. Jet black, super resistant tan head. Sweet creamy & rich coffee aroma, spend grounds and fresh espresso. Dense, thick, warm, chewy. Very good in what it does, but still fairly direct.

Black pour with deep brown slowly diminishing head. Roasty coffee smell with roasty malts. Light coffee and dark chocolate flavors well balanced with some other great toffee and carmelly flavors. Thick oily creamy mouth feel. Very very good.

UPDATED: AUG 30, 2009 The perfect coffee-beer. Pours black with a foamy dark brown head. Aroma of light coffee, wood, dark fruit and roasted malt. Flavor is incredibly balanced coffee and malt, also some dark chocolate, and dark fruit. The beer has a wonderful coffee flavor without any overwhelming bitterness (or sweetness for that matter). Incredible!

Ober (2811) - Bommelerwaard, NETHERLANDS - JUN 15, 2009
A pitch black colored beer, with a thick foamy dark brown colored head. The aroma of bitter chocolate with coffee and dark fruits. Some sweets. The taste has a thick full flavor of pure chocolate, dry coffee with fruits. A beautiful combination of bitters and sweets. The aftertaste of bitter chocolate.

22oz bottle - Opaque black color with medium sized light brown head. Aroma is full of rounded beautiful coffee, dark chocolate, oak. Flavor is malty, with chewy malts, dark chocolate. Smooth, delicious, I really liked this one - one of the best coffee stouts I’ve had.
