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.

Pour is ultra dark brown, bordering on black with a brown head that was thick and a bit persistent. The aroma was well done. Rich, roasted coffee dominates with lighter hints at chocolate and licorice. The flavor is a nice balance of roasted coffee beans and chocolate. The coffee didn’t taste burnt and the chocolate didn’t taste artificial. The mouthfeel was medium bodied and easy drinking. Just a small hint of warming alcohol that was quite at home right at the end of the palate. Very nice.

Bottle and Liquid Sunshine VI. Jet black, super resistant tan head. Sweet creamy & rich coffee aroma, spend grounds and fresh espresso. Dense, thick, warm, chewy. Very good in what it does, but still fairly direct.

Black pour with deep brown slowly diminishing head. Roasty coffee smell with roasty malts. Light coffee and dark chocolate flavors well balanced with some other great toffee and carmelly flavors. Thick oily creamy mouth feel. Very very good.

UPDATED: AUG 30, 2009 The perfect coffee-beer. Pours black with a foamy dark brown head. Aroma of light coffee, wood, dark fruit and roasted malt. Flavor is incredibly balanced coffee and malt, also some dark chocolate, and dark fruit. The beer has a wonderful coffee flavor without any overwhelming bitterness (or sweetness for that matter). Incredible!

A pitch black colored beer, with a thick foamy dark brown colored head. The aroma of bitter chocolate with coffee and dark fruits. Some sweets. The taste has a thick full flavor of pure chocolate, dry coffee with fruits. A beautiful combination of bitters and sweets. The aftertaste of bitter chocolate.

Pours oily black with a medium sized mocha colored head. Beautiful aroma of mocha, chocolate, and a touch of hops. Flavor is very well balanced chocolate, dark fruit, coffee, and roasted malt. The coffee is not as dominant as I was expecting. Very sweet at first and slightly bitter at the end. Good body. Good coffee finish. Make sure to let it warm. Nice beer.

Pours an incredible fudge brown with a thick and creamy chocolate head. Absolutely beautiful. The aroma is a perfect blend of sweet coffee roast and chocolate earthiness. The mouthfeel is exquisitely smooth and full, with just a hint of carbonation. The flavor is full of the delicious coffee all the way through. Some chocolate, buttery flavors also show through in the beginning, and it finishes very mellow and slightly bitter sweet.
