COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed by Mikkeller at Nøgne Ø, 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 first off this tast like some little animal dumped in my beer. Next Pours out a nice black topped with a tan head. Aroma was very nice no animal dump at all. Just plenty of sweet dark chocolate and coffee. Tast was nice more of the coffee and some vanilla showed up. A little bitter on the end. A pretty tast one.

Blom (831) - Odense, DENMARK - APR 20, 2009
UPDATED: MAY 9, 2012 Black with a low grey head. Intense aroma of dark chocolate, coffee and liqourice. Smooth as hell, and extremely full bodied. The flavours begin very roasted and a bit sweet before they go into head on-bitterness, like chocolate and cocoa combined with a bit of lime and citrus. It is unbelievable smooth!

dmac (3924) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - APR 20, 2009
Bottle from Capones. Poured a perfect looking pitch black body with a mocha colored head. Aroma is lots of burnt roasty malts, soy and bbq sauce, very light coffee notes. The roastiness carries through to the flavor with tobacco, tar, coffee and dark chocolate syrup. Full creamy body that finishes syrupy. Really nice and probably my favorite from the Beer Wars preparty.

Sammy (8420) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 19, 2009
Very expensive 500 ml at Beerbistro, recent batch left by the Denmark merchant fleet, and tested by our local large government at 9.4%. This is a top beer for coffee lovers. It pour black with great white head that becomes increasingly brown and much lace is left as it sinks in the glass. A sipper, with a sharp and overwhelming coffee presence. Taste is chocolately. A profound bitterness, with malt behind it. Just don’t gulp it too soon. Full mouthfeel, well roasted though not burnt. Perhaps a quarter cup of the actual strong coffee. Not the best coffee I have tasted, and not the best imperial stout of so many good ones I have enjoyed of late.

Bottle. Rating #1000. Pours almost pitch black with a big beige/brown head. Nice lacing. Aroma is sweet pine hops with roasted notes. Slight coffee as well as liquorice notes appear as it warms. Well-balanced. Flavour is sweet and roasted with pine hops, which makes for a nice blend; the two can sometimes clash, but it works quite well here. A bitterness roams in the background. Slightly cloying in the long run, but nothing serious. Tart roasted finish with a smooth, mild bitterness. Lingering apple notes and alcohol. As it warms, it develops coffee notes, a slightly candy-like sweetness and a dry off-note. Smooth palate, although a tad too much carbonation for my taste. I had expected a more complex flavour, and more outspoken coffee notes, but it was still a very good and well-made beer. 19-04-09.

yobdoog (1888) - Woodridge NY, New York, USA - APR 18, 2009
Bottle shared by Dmac. Thanks. Super dark black chocolate color with a little off white head. Slight sticky lacing on glass. Rich body and nice mouthfeel. Aroma is very pleasant and has tons of creamy coffee and molasses with rich dark cocoa undertones. Alcohol is well hidden. You would never know these beans were once inside another living animal.

madsberg (10140) - Søborg, DENMARK - APR 18, 2009
Bottled. Pitch black coloured. Huge brown dense head. Lasting. Aroma of coffee, roast, light cocoa, sweetness, liqourice (anise), herbs and some light smoke. flavour is tense and smooth. Again coffee and liqourice. Loads of molasses and a nice herbal touch. I get some espresso associations while sipping this. Medium to full bodied. Quite dry. Ends on a roasty, coffeedense bitterness, with a light bite of alcohol on the lips and palate. Very intense beer.
