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.

Opaque dark brown with half a finger of tan head that settles to a wispy film with little lacing. Aroma is more subdued than expected with sharp brewed coffee, chocolate and faint cherry pipe tobacco. Taste is strong brewed coffee at first followed by a quick hit of sharp roasty bitter and some alcohol. That fades to a sweet chocolate syrup, then a grassy bitter. Finishes with more coffee and dark chocolate that lingers as well as some roasty bitterness. Medium/full bodied with medium/high carbonation. Big and complex flavors that develop as you drink. Makes you want to keep drinking to explore it. Maybe a bit too carbonated but lives up to the hype.

2014 bottle to a tulip glass. Pours black with a hint of brown at the edges. Very little brown head. Aroma is surprisingly subdued. Some chocolate with a little earthy hops. Taste starts as chocolate and some bitterness. Alcohol and roast start to build on the tongue and then explodes into a dark chocolate with an acrid, roasted coffee. Taste hangs around on the tongue and continues to develop. Mouthfeel is medium-full with a slight alcohol burn. The taste is the big attraction. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Nice. Solid. There’s nothing missing here. Might be the epitome of the style. At the same time, I’d like some distinguishing characteristic that makes the beer interesting. Here, I get nil.

Rich coffee aroma. Flavor is huge chocolate with coffee backbone that lingers nicely. Fine carbonation and smooth mouthfeel

Botella 33 cl. en Cerveceria Arte&Sana. Predomina el café, pero la cantidad de matices es increible. Chocolate, vainilla, licor... Magistral.

Pours pitch black with a half finger of dark chocolatey head. Slight lacing very little carbonation. Nose has a prevelant coffee note with some caramel, maple syrup, alcohol and roasted malts. Mouth is all coffee up front. Awesome bitterness and even a slight bit of nutmeg and chickory. After the beer sits for a bit, there is a very strong dark chocolate taste. It was quite delicious.

Probably the best thing I’ve tasted that came from a weasel’s ass. Truly superb. The coffee, dark chocolate and oatmeal come together with superb precision here. Caramel and cream, coffee and toasty, crisp malt. Finishes bitter with notes of sweetness. Pours black with great head and lacing. Some residual sweetness as well. Tap at Churchkey.
