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.

Bottle from Cornelius. Black body with a medium tan head that slowly fades. No lacing. Aroma of vanilla ice-cream, advent calendar chocolate, prunes and coffee. Flavour of nuts, milk chocolate, raisins, vanilla and Ferrero Roche. Full body with a creamy texture. Soft fizz. Wonderful.

330ml bottle. Pours jet black with dark brown head. Aroma is coffee molasses licorice and soy sauce. Really full mouth feel. Velvety smooth texture. Does taste alcoholic. Plenty of burnt toast, coffee and a tangy, smooth, slightly sweet lovely finish.

kevinator (1078) - The Colony, Texas, USA - JAN 27, 2015
Fantastic. Strong roasted and coffee aroma. Beautiful full and dark with a small ring that sustains, probably due to the oatmeal. Full-bodied but not syrupy. Sharp and dry finish. Bold flavors that blended nicely. Alcohol is well-hidden. Great sipping beer.

martin00sr (978) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JAN 25, 2015
Black, oily. Small tan head. Strong aroma, coffee, roasted malt, brown sugar and licorice. Flavour has strong, bitter coffee with licorice notes. Mouthfeel is big, oily and sticky. Well balanced, strong and lasting bitterness combined with sweetness and relatively well masked alcohol. Very good.

dnicolaescu (999) - Chișinău, MOLDOVA - JAN 24, 2015
BOTTLE 33 CL. Very sweet, luscious aroma of chocolate, molasses, warming alcohol and a touch of proper coffee.No berries or ripe fruit. If you really try, you can get some of that dry manure scent (that was so strong in De Molen’s Kopi Loewak). At this intensity it does feel somewhat pleasant. The taste is very sweet, sweet chocolate, roasted malts, a solid hop bitterness, warming alcohol. The body is smooth and creamy. Everything looks right, but it is mostly a well made impy, nothing earth shattering. The biggest disappointment, is the too faint coffee aroma. Still, a very good stout.

Beer Geek Brunch Weasel Bottle 0.33 bought in Mikkeller bottle shop in Copenhagen appearance: very dark brown, solid, pours with no head at all which was quite disappointing, thick, oily texture nose: intense amazing coffee aroma, dark chocolate, cocoa, decent good quality alcohol mouthfeel: oily, full bodied, nearly no carbonation, extremely long and delightful bittersweet finish with espresso-like acidicy taste: reminds me kahlua, espresso, extra-dark chocolate, rum, sweetness perfectly balanced with pleasant bitterness and acidic coffee taste overall: exquisite beer one can linger over for a long time deriving enjoyment with every little sip, minus for disappointing looks with literally no head
