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.

This is just incredible. Mouth feel is velvety. Dark chocolate malt flavor. The coffee flavor was very smooth with almost no bitterness. This might be my favorite stout.

Fritz123 (1195) - Boca Raton, Florida, USA - MAR 1, 2015
Bottle at the Syb Pig in Boca Raton. Pours a very deep black with a frothy mocha head. Powerful breakfast aromas of coffee, burnt malts, dark breads, graham cracker, vanilla. The taste is dark chocolate, coffee, vanilla cream, slightly sweet milk, and dark fruits. Delicious finish of bitter coffee and roasted malts with some sweetness. The full body and thick mouth are on par for the style. Very very good.

Bottle from cellarbrations super store in hami hill. Pours a very dark brown with little to no head. Carbonation is low with a full body. Aroma is vegemite and coffee mixed with dark chocolate. There's a hint of vanilla and some fruity hops. Taste begins fairly sweet and turns into chocolate. Coffee becomes evident at the end of the palate with a delicate and not over powering bitterness. There's some burnt notes, perhaps a slight hint of bourbon and some pine resin. Beautiful!

Quite black with barely any head. Has a complex taste of coffee, caramel and dark rum. Heavy body, with great palate. The alcohol is definitely present, but doesn’t obscure the other tastes

Opaque. Roast aroma, coffee. Roast malt. Heavy body, but not quite as viscous as Mikkeller George. Silky smooth flavors of dark sweet malt, coffee, vanilla meld nicely. Not overly bitter -- bitterness, roast and sweetness in good harmony. Clean finish. Super delicious!

hohops (423) - Kent, ENGLAND - FEB 2, 2015
Appearance is jet black, pours like thick syrup into the glass. No head at all. Aroma- rich chocolate cake, vanilla, dark coffee/espresso, fudge, booze, port, dark rum, dark fruit undertones, caramel. Taste- loads of chocolate, bitter coffee, caramel, burnt sugar, treacle, vanilla, hint of almond, tiramisu. Oily, syrupy mouthfeel, thick and dense, sweet booziness coats the tongue, almost chewy. A lasting, sweet finish. Just the right amount of sweetness. This is a sipper, and is exceptional.
