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.

Poured into a taster showing a thick pitch black with a very thin layer of brown colored foam. The nose shows big notes of coffee and roasted malts with sweet notes of molasses. The palate is rich, full bodied, and creamy smooth. A very slight latte sweetness throughout but dominantly lightly roasted coffee, cacao, and gentle notes of roasted malts. Finish is a dark chocolate/cacao bitterness. Full and rich without a flavor that also drags you down.

Really interesting. First time Ive had a beer this expensive per ounce. Made me rethink beer and beer menus, that I could put this on a menu as a digestif and not even get a full liquor license.

355 ml bottle poured at home. Pours a dark brown with a brownish head and lots of lacing. Smell and taste is coffee. Almost no alcohol flavor at all. I love it. If I had to criticize at all it would be that the finish was a touch watery but it’s really nitpicking. Thoroughly drinkable.

From cervezasespeciales. In Teku glass. Playing Legend of Grimrock 2. Alcohol perflectly hidden. Nice aroma, taste and feel. No need to worry about the weasel dropings this is made from. It doesnt stink at all but the contrary

Bottle. Pours deep black with brownish head and good lacing. Strong aroma of coffee and roasted malts. Taste: again lots of coffee, only a bit sweet, with well marked bitterness. Full bodied, with oily texture and perfectly hidden alcohol. A very good stout.

Delicious stout. Pours a black color with a tan head that disappeared quickly. The smell is sweet up front with coffee and booze kicking in at the end. Taste is exactly the same but very smooth because of the oats.

Achel (306) - Ioannina, GREECE - NOV 16, 2015
Clear sparkling dark black color with a huge, creamy - rocky, excellent lacing, fully lasting, light brown head. Aroma is light heavy malty, coffee, moderate roasted, chocolate, moderate to heavy hoppy, citrus - orange, pine. Flavor is light heavy sweet and bitter with a long long duration. Body is medium to full, texture is creamy - oily, smooth and soft, carbonation is soft. Very nice beer Mikkel and then the story in the news

seymour (1799) - Maplewood, Missouri, USA - NOV 10, 2015
Shared from 11.2oz brown bottle into taster glasses, opaque black colour with deep sudsy brown foam, long-lasting with fine lace. Rich malts, grainy, fruity, dark chocolate, dark coffee, brown bread, toast with orange marmalade, roasty, stone fruit esters, pleasant sharpness from burnt barley grains. Somehow both chewy and creamy. Sweet and bitter. Tart. Full-bodied, chewy mouthfeel, subtle tannins and mineral essence, average carbonation, lingering multi-layered aftertastes with a hoppy snap and bright coffee acidity at finish. Boozier and less smooth than the regular Mikkeller Beer Geek Breakfast, which I actually enjoyed more. But don’t get me wrong, this is still a masterpiece.
