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.

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 ! [20090130]

yespr (30689) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - JAN 9, 2009
UPDATED: JAN 16, 2009 50 cL bottle. Pours a lovely black and dense fluid with a huge creamy and solid deep chocolate brown head. Light antiseptic note to a solid chocolate, roasted malt and smooth coffee aroma, light hoppy accent. Mouthfeel is fullbodied/thick and creamy smooth. Flavour is lovely chocolate, light marmelade/jam fruity too from the hops and sugars just emerging out of a solid dark malt impression. Slowly increasing bitterness into the finish yet quite smooth. Somehow I liked the bitter coffee notes from the one-on-one marginally better than this, the Civet Coffee certainly gives more room to the beer flavours with it’s more subtle chocolate and bitterness notes. Smooth dark chocolate and mild sweet yet also bitter finish. Lovely.

Ungstrup (29081) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - FEB 25, 2009
Rated to celebrate my rating number 12,300. Bottled. A pitch black beer with a huge dark brown head. The aroma is sweet though with an acicic note of coffee, hops, and bitter chocolate, combined with citrusy notes. The flavor is sweet with strong notes of roasted malt, great coffee, alcohol, citrusy hops, and dark bitter chocolate - everything is powerful in this beer, leading to a bitter quite hoppy and citrusy finish, but also with underlying strong notes of roasted malt and coffee.

UPDATED: MAR 31, 2009 Bottle 50 cl. Pours completely opaque black with a dense and lacing light brown head. Aroma of sweet vanilla and sweet burned malts. Full-bodied, again sweet vanilla, chocolate and burned coffee accents with an extremely pleasant and smooth mouthfeel. Lightly malt bitter finish - but stil smooth, smooth, smooth. Yummy. 280209

oh6gdx (20217) - Vasa, FINLAND - MAR 4, 2009
Bottled@Sorbon, Brommaplan, Stockholm. Black colour, small brown head. Aroma is very sweet alcoholic, malty, licoracy and chocolaty. Also some slight hints of coffee and smoke as it warms up. Flavour is quite much the same, but the balance seems to be out there still. Not that impressed. Probably needs some age.

omhper (19194) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - FEB 27, 2009
Bottled at Sorbon, Stockholm. Very black with small beige head. Rich aroma of coffee and licorice. Sweet and full bodied, honey rounds of a solid body, coffee is ever present. Sweetness reaches a level where it starts to clash with bitterness, but chocolate softens it. Feels a bit more edgy and less pleasat than most Beer Geek stouts.

Opaque black beer with a thick creamy chocolate coloured head. Very soft palate. Immediate rich coffee but tangy and not bitter. Followed by a pronounced red fruit tone - dominated by cherry. Finishes with a little aniseed alcohol. Sumptuous beer - rich, full of flavour and with good coherence.

Black color. The aroma is not impressive, with very light vanilla. The flavor is well smooth, with a good mix of chocolate, caramel and light-sweet liquorice. The final is dominated by the chocolate. Good.

2009-02-20, bottle at Ølbaren, Copenhagen
Black color. The aroma is both breadish and burnt. Medium body, it has a very good balance of chocolate, caramel, roasted malt, coffee and cream. The best feature of this Stout is its creamy character.
