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. This was worth the wait! Pours pretty much jet black, with no light getting through, with a big brown head that lasts very well and leaves plenty of lace. Coffee is first up on the nose, quickly followed by dark chocolate, caramelised sugar, hint of roasted malt and a noticeable trace of alcohol. Flavour is kinda similar in essence but the chocolate is stronger, there is a hint of cream or milk and the alcohol is not so prominent. The coffee bitterness is balanced perfectly by the sweetness and the mouthfeel is soft, smooth and creamy. A fantastic stout; aroma, flavour, everything is spot on. Hope I’ll not have to wait so long to find it again, regardless of cost.

Taking it out of order for my 1200th rating - 500cl - Very pungent aroma of roasted coffee, dark malts and cocoa. Flavor is intense. Strong coffee, alcohol and burnt malts roll together in an intoxicating way. Subtle hints of brown sugar and vanilla. Palate is ashy and dry. As much as I thought this was a great brew, it started to get tough to finish at the end. Share yours with someone today!

Pours oily thick with a huge brown head. Aroma is big time chocolate, a little roast, and maybe some coffee... Flavor is a lot like Expedition stout without all the bitterness... Really thick mouthfeel... Nice chocolately thick impy stout...

weaselkenievil (1608) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - SEP 9, 2009
Black as a black dog with a dark brown head at first, big bubbles turning into a moon like appearance. Aroma is quite mellow for such a flavoursome drink. Alcohol very well hidden and very easy to drink, very smooth. Obvious coffee and chocolate. Hints of vanilla, roasted malts, hops. I love it, very nice. It’s all about the weasel.

Thick black pour. Turns dark brown on tilt towards the edges. Smells of coffee and oatmeal. Coffee aromas aren’t overwhelming which is important to me. Nice mouth feel. Just enough fizz. Espresso. Bitter finish. Not as complex as I was hoping for.

Pours a dark motor oil color with light brown head. Very nice lacing. Aroma of roasted coffee, oats, chocolate, booze. Taste of expresso, chocolate. alcohol. Bitter finish. Very oily and chewy. Excellent imperial stout. Thanks to Butters for providing this one, and congrats on 1,500 ratings!

Butters (3942) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - SEP 7, 2009
For my 1500th rating, at the Butters’ 1500 tasting. Pours a very near black with quick fading brown head. Nose is a very complex roasted oats, marshmellows, alcohol fusels, dark and milk chocolates. Flavors mimic the aroma, but it does not carry the same burning alcohols, more of just a mild boozy warming quality. More chocolates, expresso, and great coffee notes, but not like bitter coffee grounds. Body is medium full chewy, kinda oily as it coats the mouth. Extremely enjoyable beer, and a worthy of the extreme price.

Barrios (1243) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - SEP 7, 2009
Pours a lasting ring of beige head with a dark brown body. Aromas of coffee, cocoa, and alcohol. Flavor is espresso, little cocoa, alcohol, and a pungent earthiness. Silky and bitter finish with a silky mouth feel.

Maybe it’s just my nose but most coffee stouts smell like stale coffee to me. Anyway, it tasted far better than the smell but had an unpleasant alcohol bite coupled with some sweetness at around the 2/3rds mark.
