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.

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.

Nickls (2334) - Alexandria, Virginia, USA - MAY 6, 2010
(Old BA rate - bottle) Poured a deep, dark black color...heavy looking. Shimmers of brown color, with a finger of chunkier tan head. Aroma of fresh roasted coffee and bittersweet chocolate, with a slight alcohol presence. Really good. Smooth roasted malts, chocolate and coffee notes as well. Sweetness helps override the booze, but the booze adds a nice warming quality. Creamy, viscous, and nearly silky in some respects. Pretty damn good drinking. Nice complexity and overall weight of the brew doesn’t hit too hard. Soothing and wonderful.

Pour is dark brown- black with a quick head. Aroma is strong coffee and coco. Taste is strong coffee and coco and bitter soy. Feel is slick yet chaulky finish.

willblake (2654) - Bel Air, Maryland, USA - APR 30, 2010
20100430 500ml bottle from Honeygo Nearly black, thick, goopy stuff that at the end of the bottle poured like a milkshake. Tall, sticky, dense brown head lasts. Aroma is massive with coffee, licorice, dark rummy booze, molasses, and some forest-like pine hints. When cold, this stuff was practically undrinkable -- all harsh coffee roast bittern acidity -- but with temp it opens up to a mildly sweetened coffee, black cherry, rum raisin, maple beauty without being too bitter, nor too sweet. Nice balance for a big stout like this. Unctuous feel with late prickly eff. Little similarity to the CCB Zhukov’s Final Push, and in fact I think quite a different take on how this coffee should be incorporated, as this one seems more focused on the beer, where CCB focused moreso on the adjunct. Both were delicious.

Very smooth and complex stout. Oatmeal malts melt in your mouth like velvet. Blackish pour. Dough and caramel breads hit the nose. Rated 6/30/09

Rune (10906) - Tromsø, NORWAY - APR 23, 2010
500ml bottle, batch 391, bought at Ølbutikken in Copenhagen almost a year ago. Dense, tan coloured head with solid foam stand lacing the glassware. The body is just black as coal. Exhibits a gorgeous aroma of coffee and cream-like chocolate. Comprehensive taste of dark chocolate malts, hints of liquorice, dark fruits, pine-like hops, and alcohol integrated with bitter coffee towards a long lived ending. Full bodied, however, not too heavy to drink. Very well balanced and a great pleasure to drink. Top-notch, indeed (rating no.3000)(shared with Finn, Tromsø 21.04.2010).

Finn (6147) - Tromsø, NORWAY - APR 22, 2010
Flaske 0,5l som Rune spanderte. Svart som natta. Høyt mokkafarget kremaktig skum som varer lenge. Herlig aroma av kaffe&sjokolade. Oljeaktig følelse på tunga. Smaken er innholdsrik og sammensatt med litt krydder og litt fruktighet. Litt syrlig bitterhet etterhvert. Et velbalansert øl. Alkoholen veldig godt kamuflert.
