Formerly brewed by Mikkeller at NÝgne ō, Norway, now at Lervig, Norway.
This imperial Oatmeal stout is brewed with one of the worldís 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.

500 mL bottle poured into a snifter. Pours a deep brown, almost black, with a one-finger brown head. Looks rich and viscous. Aroma of roasted malts and rich chocolate. Not so much coffee, really, which surprised me. The taste is very chocolatey as well, but with a prevalent coffee taste. The coffee isnít overwhelming at all. It allows the stout flavors to come through. There is a lingering bitterness that prevents the sweetness from becoming cloying. Great consistency. Medium carbonation. Par for the style. The mouthfeel is thick enough to feel like an imperial stout, but not so much that I couldnít put it away like nothing. High quality beer.

Very solid beer but to be honest, Iím mystified at the very high rating. Donít get me wrong, itís a very good beer and while solid all-around, is not particularly special. Slight coffee aroma, with dark our. Medium head, died down pretty quick. Good coffee stout taste but Iíve had several better. Nice consistency, not thin.

Saw this on the menu at Brasserie V and had to get one. Slightly expensive at $13 a glass, but civet coffee is expensive. Black body. Huge chocolate coffee aroma. Big roasted coffee taste. Lots of chocolate flavor. The coffee taste is really good but different. Itís a very earthy coffee.

Motor oil with thin tan head. Sipping on this for brunch between CFA studying and Tony Bís wedding. Life is good. Smells of cocal nibs. Strong coffee flavor that melts slowly on palate and rounds out to chocolate. Really good coffee flavor, not just coffee for sakes of coffee. Hides alcohol well. A trace of vanilla would have had me kick this up to 4.5 or 4.6, which is rare territory for me......(after reading the descripton, I canít believe I just drank poop)

Bottle from SlackerMads during European Swap 2/15, many thanks. Black color, minimal brown head. Aroma is dense and intensive, rich fruity with notes oft dark fruits, dried fruits, berries. Dark raspberry chocolate, cacao powder, light coffee notes. Flavor is also dense and velvety, vanilla, lots of fruity dark chocolate, cacao beans, espresso, some alcohol. Roasty bitter finish. Rich and very tasty.

Draft 6 oz pour at Special Brews. Pours black with a lasting tan foam head. Big chocolate vanilla aroma. Coffee bean flavor up front with a sweet creamy vanilla transition. Super smooth and easy drinking. Lingering mocha chocolate flavor. Incredible stout. Doesnít really taste heavy to me. Loved it.

This was poured into a snifter. The appearance had a dark brown close to black color with no head nor lacing. The smell was fabulous with an almost perfect combination of roasted coffee bean to a light milk chocolate and also a decent dark chocolate. The taste was sweet and roasty pulling together rich roasty coffee notes into milk and dark chocolates finely. A light dry chocolate aftertaste leads to a slightly dry finish. On the palate, this one sat about a medium on the body with a good sipping quality about it. Alcohol really isnít felt, and the carbonation is fairly smooth. Overall, imperialized oatmeal stout, if anything, well, the aroma and the taste are absolutely enthralling. Pretty sure I just love it for what it is and not necessarily for the style since honestly thereís no such thing as an imperialized oatmeal stout.

Paid nearly $10.00 for this 11.2 oz bottle at 7/11 Kittery ME. Well, it does live up to the hype and price, canít believe it took me this long to try this! Aroma is real nice; deep roast, burnt espresso bean, earthy soil like note and unsweetened chocolate.

The flavor has a nice amount of depth. It changes after some slow sips. Earthy coffee throughout, thick chewy oats that gives a hearty full body. The texture is dry roast with the alcohol letting you know it is here with a warming after the sip. Mild dark fruit hints. The roast, coffee, dark fruit and chocolate lingering for a good amount after the sip. Very savory and great, maybe just a tad overpriced because of the coffee beans.

Bottle. So good Iíve got a cupboard full of them. Pours a perfect engine oil black with a bronze head. Aroma hums of coffee and roasted malt. So much flavour. Itís a big stout. Coffee, chocolate, charcoal and vanilla. Itís thick, boozy and incredibly complex. You couldnít tire of it.
