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.

Ottima imperial stout con note principalmente di caffè che emergono. Un’ottima alternativa al caffè dopo cena !!! Non proprio l’ideale per un brunch però !!!

Attraverso la notte impenetrabile di questa imperial stout, una cascata di note di caffé sfumate di cacao invade il palato, esaltata da un corpo pieno e denso e note calde. Ottimerrima!

Bottle from Mikkeller & Friends. Black with slightly brown edges. Nose has bread, chocolate and coffee notes. Full bodied, flavors like aromas and lenghty tasty finish. Really good in all aspects.

veceo (651) - CROATIA - NOV 14, 2014
Dark brown color with reddish hue, thin brown head that quickly disappeared. Full body, soft carbonation. Huge chocolate aroma, coffee, roasted malt. Creamy and smooth texture. Complex as hell. Awesome.

Bottle 0,33l. Thick dark liquid with dark unsteady foam. Full body, light carbonation. Rich chocolate taste without sourness, taste like spoon of Kras Express. Really great one.

maxwelldeux (3802) - Everett, Washington, USA - NOV 6, 2014
Bottle. Pours a near black color with a moderate brown head on there. Nose has some licorice to it like a RIS, and has a lot of bitter dark roasty coffee to it. Taste is very chocolatey and quite roasty, with just a hint of bitter. Such a great beer...

Jimthechap (1790) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - NOV 3, 2014
Absolutely impenetrably black with a thick oil slick of coffee coloured head and a tapestry of lace down the side of the glass, clinging rigidly. The aroma is of intense freshly ground coffee, cola nut, lemon zest, grated dark chocolate, elderberries, carob (I hate carob), iron filings and redwood shavings. The smell is rich, complex, edifying. The immediate impression when drinking is how viscous and oily this beer is before the flood of classic dark beer flavours, all listed in the aroma. It is somewhat sweet and definitely warming. Those complex flavours coming together in a symphony... a symphony of... you know the bit where in the Witches of Eastwick where the school orchestra finally gets its act together and performs in perfect unison? The finish just has to be tasted to be described - the gentle pinch of astringent coffee along with some dusty cocoa and cocoa butter and an overwhelming urge to lean back in my chair, cast my eyes skyward and thank the Almighty. This is testament to everything going right in a brewery.
