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.

Pours dark brown with beige head. Smelle of coffee, licorice, malt and hops. Taste is strong and intense coffee with licorice, aromatic hops and some burned malt. A bit cloying.

Barwa: ciemna, nieprzejrzysta. Pian brązowa, obfita, ale ultra szybko zanikająca. Całość gęsta i oleista. [4/5] Aromat: przede wszystkim kawowy, ale dość delikatny. Następnie czekolada, słodycz, melanoidyny. Alkohol całkiem dobrze ukryty. Smak: pełny, słodki z praktycznie zerowym wysyceniem. Czekolada mleczna i kawa, ale nie za gorzka, przyjemna. Do tego lekka lukrecja, nieco wytrawnej paloności i rozgrzewający alkoholowy finisz. Kolejne z serii Beer Geek Mikkellera. Tym razem RIS warzony z ziarnami kawy przetworzonej wstępnie przez łaskuny. Piwo mimo dużej mocy jest nadzwyczaj delikatne. Połączenie kawy i czekolady jest doskonale wyważone. Smak jest nie za słodki, nie za gorzki, z lekką nutą kwaskową. Niesamowicie pijalne, ale starałem się brać, jak najmniejsze łyki żeby ten smak zatrzymać na dłużej. Z reszta co tu się dłużej rozwodzić, spróbujcie sami, bo warto. Tylko cena może trochę zaskoczyć.

Black pour with small foamy beige head. Aroma of coffee, slight chocolate and faint hops. Taste of espresso, unsweetened chocolate, slight vanilla and faint hops. Full bodied, creamy mouthfeel, strong bitter coffee finish that lasts forever.

Bottle. Pours black with a brown head. Aroma is lots of coffee up front with cocoa, molasses, caramel and light ash in the background. Taste is medium sweet with a light roasted bitterness, lingering coffee. Medium bodied, low carbonation. Was hoping for a bit more complexity.

Mørk rødbrun∕svart farve med mørk beige skum som raskt forsvinner. Lukt av kaffe, sjokolade, vanilje og bek. Smak av røstet malt, sjokolade, kaffe, vanilje og bek. Vinmonopolet.

11.2 oz bottle into a tulip glass. Pours an inky black, with a small brown head which quickly fades, leaving fair lacing. Nose is strong black coffee. taste is deep, rich coffee and dark malt, with a very long finish that has a hint of hop bitterness. Mouth feel is creamy and thick. One of the best coffee stouts I’ve ever had.

11.2 oz bottle purchased from State Line. I’ve had this several times over the years, but am finally sitting down to rate this beer that has become harder to find recently. Pours a dark black that does not allow light to pass at all. A one inch dark khaki head settles down to barely a hint of bubbles floating on the meniscus, leaving no lacing. Aroma is an intense yet balanced fresh black coffee with a slight sweet complexity from roasted malts. Notes of baker’s chocolate as well - a deliciously bitter aroma. Flavor is full and overpowering. Coffee is dominant, with notes of sweet chocolate, caramel, malt, oats. Mouthfeel is full, rich and viscous, like a simple syrup. The finish is outstanding - no change from the bold flavor. If anything is different, there is a slight hint of mild peppermint that I’m tasting - a pleasant roasty bitter chocolaty finish overall that is just superb. This is better than I remember, since I’m drinking it at room temperature. Delicious.

Bottle. Pours a dark brown with medium creamy tan head that lasts. The aroma is cocoa, roasted malt, chocolate, and coffee. Thick mouthfeel with nice coffee roast, dark chocolate, nice bitterness and dry finish. Really enjoyed this one.

Moolesen (157) - NETHERLANDS - JUL 2, 2014
Bottle 50cl. Pours black with a very dark head. Extreme rich aroma of roasted malt, coffee, tar and just bery intense. If the nose was intense, then the taste basically blow up your taste buds. Amazing hiw much taste you can put in a beer. Coffee and tar is dominant and a perfect bitter finish to complete this beer. Simply fantastic if you are into extreme beers.

Pours a dark brown with a very thin head that diminishes. Aroma is fantastic! Coffee, slight booze aroma, chocolate and more coffee! That taste is out of this world. Perfectly balanced coffee flavor with yeast, vanilla, chocolate and more coffee at the finish. One of the best I’ve had!

alkolas510 (549) - SWEDEN - JUN 28, 2014
Kolsvart tjock öl med litet ljusbrunt skum som snabbt försvinner. Doftar sjukt mycket kaffe och lite choklad! ! Massor med kaffe, choklad, vanilj i smaken och lite söt sliskig och lite chocklad och beska. Fyllig och ingen alkoholsmak trots 10.9%. Ganska lite kolsyra! Riktigt bra öl!!
