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.

Split with my brother. Pours a rich dark brown color with a medium mocha head. Aroma is rich coffee, burnt roasts, and milk chocolate. Mouthfeel is very smooth with no strong bitterness or overly rich tastes. It is so balanced and flavorful. This is out of this world good.

Bottle. Huge creamy head with excellent duration. Color is black. Aroma is rich coffee, chocolate and roast malt. Taste is smooth with lots of coffee and chocolate, but also some notes of licorice and hops. Nice bitter finish.

UPDATED: MAY 27, 2010 50cl bottle from De Molen, a birthday gift. Pitch black colour, thin light brown head. Aroma of plain chocolate, Madagascar vanilla, black liquorice (drop), alcohol, a bit of coffee. Flavour is sweet, roasted malts, vanilla, chocolate, liquorice, bitter roasted and light hoppy finish with lingering coffee in the back. I found the coffee to be very subdued, which is good imo. Fullbodied, very soft and smooth moutfheel, sticky. Really good, but I prefer the most important meal of the day: Breakfast.

Tap at Blind Tiger, with Mikkel standing nearby. Poured a deep, dark brown with a only a faint, beige head. (Yeah, not much head this time.) Aroma had plenty of bitter coffee, dark chocolate, slight malt roast. Flavor was huge and complex. The coffee had a fruity, nutty character. The chocolate notes were there, but not overly sweet. In the finish, some charred malt and tobacco, more dark mocha. The coffee flavors really hit you in the finish, in the back of the throat. Big body, very soft carbonation. One thing I loved about drinking this was that it took me almost an hour to get through a 14oz glass. It is just so intense and pungent. Very unique, quite delicious. Brunch is an appropriate name, as this was basically a meal.

A-pours a viscous opaque black liquid with a dense dark tan colored head and good retention with an extremely thick lace. S-the nose is a little lighter and quite chalky, lots of ashy aromas. notes of espresso and roasted malts, hints of dark chocolate. finish has a good bit of earthy herbal and citrus hops in the back. T-chalky and ashy, dark chocolate with notes of smooth espresso. earthy hops in the back with herbal and citrusy notes and a light bitter finish. 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!
