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.

UPDATED: AUG 21, 2015 Doskonałe piwo do analizy jak temperatura wpływa nie postrzeganie genialności piwa. Można rozpocząć zbyt nisko i nie zorientować się że te sztuczne smaki w nim kiedyś się rozwiną i powalą. Update. GENIALNE

Aroma: picking up a lot of coffee, some licorice, vanilla and smoke (like in smoked meat). Smooth mouth feel! Taste: coffee, burned meat, vanilla and coffee. Quite bitter, seems to sweeten when temperature rise. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Small bottle, deep black beer, almost purple deep brown head faded to nothing. Aroma is coffee, chocolate, roasted barley, dark fruits. Taste is sweet coffee, vanillas, dried plum, molasses and burnt sugar. Palate is thick and rich, carbonation subdued. This is good, rich and roasty, but too sweet overall.

I remember that last day of the 2014. We went to buy some nice beers. It was my first Mikkeller experience. WHAT A TRIP! I hade to share this with a friend and his father. We ended up stealing each other the last drop. A beer anthem! Later I noticed the most peculiar characteristic of this beer. Its made of weasel shit! The funny thing is that an exotic weasel is Vietnamese, and it eats the coffee beans to shit a variety called cà phê Chồn. One of the best coffees of the world. Mikeller Brunch weasel its PURE CHOCOLATED ROASTED COFFEE. A superior taste and palate. Perfect, dense and permanent body. Try it bro!

Eleven dollar 11.2 oz bottle to snifter. Black, oily pour, thin tan head. Aroma of booze and coffee. Taste dominated by mostly coffee with medium carbonation. Bittersweet with some vanilla, roasted coffee and a good amount of booze coming through as it sits. Smooth, tasty and very satisfying.

Birra molto alcolica, con un aroma deciso, di sapore deciso e corposa sul palato, ottima da bere a cena, o in serata come ultima birra.
