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.

Well I love coffee! And God do I love this beer! Creamy and delicious with a slight bitter aftertaste. Couldn´t drink 2 in one night though! The boys have done it again. Just great.

Bottle shared by that great Weasel farmer nbutler11. My overall impression is that the texture was like a big, giant milk stout. Aroma is hellishly dark coffee and burnt dark chocolate. Flavors of the same, plus an interesting anise interaction. A little under-spiced for me, and rather lacking on the oatiness. Still, quite dark, quite smooth, and exceptionally relaxing fare for an evening in front of the terra cotta oven.

Bottle shared by Tertons at EBF tasting. Pours a black body with a tan head. Big roasty coffee notes. Sweet and oily with hints of lactose, licorice, and coffee beans. Very roasty, my big turn off.

Bottle thanks to bu11zeye. The smell is great fresh ground coffee, nice roasted malts, dark and dried fruits. The look is a very dark black with a decent tan colored head. The taste is malts, coffee, chocolate, and some really roasty goodness.

opaque black with a syrupy appearance out of the bottle. huge effervescent brown head overflows out of the glass. large chunky yeast(i hope) particles. coffee, chocolate, light hop aroma. flavors of sweet robust chocolates, sugared coffee. also so cinnamon anise christmas-like spice which i keep telling myself has something to do with cat crap. medium to full bodied with a really smooth easy to drink palate. alcohol is well hidden. this is great stuff.

Bottle courtesy of gunhaver. Pours black with a one finger mocha head that lasts leaving good lacing. Aroma of slightly acidic heavy roast coffee, roasted malt, chocolate, and a touch of caramel. Taste is the same as aroma. Medium full mouthfeel with a moderate amount of bitterness and slight acidity from the coffee. Very good.
