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.

Wspaniały Imperial Stout. Idealnie zbalansowany, dominują nuty kawowe, czekoladowe, karmelowe, przez które przebija się lekka goryczka. Ciemne jak smoła i z takowym, smolistym ciałem. Gęsty killer, choć prawie 11% alku wyczuwalne nieznacznie tylko w aromacie. Jedno z droższych piw, jakie zakupiłem, ale warte swojej ceny.

Kauge (658) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - APR 8, 2015
Bottle from Koht. My first and last Kopi Luwak beer... Pours a reddish black colour with a brief tan head. Some tiny bits floating on the surface. Smells like raw coffee beans and chocolate - it’s really uplifting... sweet with some raw bitterness. Tastes... so full... chocolaty sweet, a lot of coffee bitterness, even a bit salty. Tingling alcoholic warmth in the throat. Sticky, but short of syrupy. Makes my lips stick on the glass. Vinous. Damn good.

Pretty smooth and delicious stout. Deep black pour - thick. Espresso and chocolate. Taste is decadent blend. Slightly sour finish. Balanced well, full bodied. Great!

Serapac (216) - CZECH REPUBLIC - APR 6, 2015
Bottle, Malting Pot. Black, tiny brown head. Aroma coffee, wild cherries in alcohol. Very little carbonation, strong lacing. Taste follows the aroma - bitter, sweet&sour, finish distinctly bitter, mainly coffee. Very nice, but I preferred the Beer Geek Breakfast that I sampled recently. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Czarne, nieprzejrzyste, ladna drobnopecherzykowa piana. W aromacie kawa, czekolada, praliny belgijskie. W smaku podobnie jak w aromacie plus wyrazny kwasny posmak kojarzacy sie z espresso

On tap @ Kufle i Kapsle. Pours pitch-black, small beige head. Aroma of coffee, marzipan, vanilla, chocolate candy bar. Feels almost as if it was barrel aged. In taste it’s sweet and chocolate-y. Velvety texture, full-bodied. Very drinkable. Great.

Have had twice on tap, twice in the bottle, all four times varied in milkiness, abundances of coffee, super milky, really tasty...if fresh one of the best if not the best..have to be careful as I’ve purchased bad bottles.

Tap pour - nearly black, almost zero head. Aroma is toasted/roasted malt, sweet chocolate, mild coffee. Flavor is very smooth - coffee a bit more muted than I anticipated...malts bordering on burnt...very roasty. Very easy drinking brew with a moderately oily palate. Very nice beer overall.

Spab (2757) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 28, 2015
330 ml bottle from Premier Gourmet. Pours an inky, nearly black dark brown with small brown head. Aroma is roasty with lots of treacle, anise, coffee and some dark fruit. Flavour is very rich and moderately roasty with treacle, anise and coffee very prominent and a subtler dark tree fruit note. Alcohol is quite well hidden for ABV. Impressive.

Probada en grifo en Barcelona Beer Festival. Una de las mejores Imperial Stouts que he probado, a pesar de estar muy mal tirada en BBF. amplio aroma y sabor a torrefacto, quizá en este caso el exceso de alcohol sea un defecto
