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.

I have been wanting to taste this along with the rest of the beer geek beers from Mikkeller. This one did not let me down! 10.9% ABV is not evident at all due to the smoothness and delicious taste of the oatmeal and coffee!

dense with light carbonation, well balanced bitterness with a chocolate aroma. Flavour is heavy toffee caramel. Yum.

11.2 oz bottle pours black in sifter with foamy brown head slow to dissipate. Smells of coffee, semi sweet chocolate cherries and raisins; strong aroma. Very oily mouth-feel and little carbonation, heavy bodied for sure. More bitter than the original beer geek, heavier (10.5% v. 7.5) and more complex flavors. Mostly the bitter coffee is dominant ,but there is certainly dark fruit flavors. Too heavy, oily and alcoholy for me which is disappointing because Vanilla Shake was 13% and that was awesome. Still makes me feel awesome like the other Beer Geeks so not a total loss.

330ml bottle. Very dark, very little head. Aroma and taste is all tropical espresso. Oily texture. Overall, extremely flavourful.

Pours a thick black, used motor oil appearance with light head. Thich scents of mushroom soy sauce, coffee, dark chocolate and heavily roasted malts. Palate is full and round with roasted hints, strong black coffee and chocolate. Finishes long. Outstanding.

This is the third Mikkeller I’ve had that doesn’t agree with me. Had it at a tasting and all I could taste was pennies. Nobody else noticed it. This will be my last Mikkeller.
