COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Formerly brewed by Mikkeller at Nřgne Ř, 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.

Five. Point. Zero. This beer smells like coffee. Not just any coffee, but damn good, perfectly roasted coffee, fresh out of the roaster. The beer pours thick and viscous, and builds a heavy mocha head if you pour aggressively. The beer and the head leave a thick, sticky film on the glass. My glass looked like I drank a milkhshake out of it. The flavor is incredible. It’s a coffee flavor, but not the typical coffee beer coffee flavor. This is complex, acidic, with lots of little tropical fruit notes. The creamy, rich chocolate, cinnamon and oatmeal base was there of course - but it tasted like it was mixed with a high quality, fresh, light roast yirgacheffe. An absolutely incredible beer. Have it with a glazed donut. I’m not kidding.

Along with Dogfish Head’s World Wide Stout, this beer is one of my two favorite beers of all time. Perfection in a glass. Almost overwhelming chocolate and coffee up front, both aroma and taste, and then straight up velvety smooth stout enjoyment thereafter. Big body, low carbonation, flavor to die for, and lingering finish. It doesn’t get better in my book.

Wow this one was phenomenal! Popped the bottle in the fridge for maybe 15 minutes and that was all I could wait. Pours an inky black with a prominent dark brown foam that laces beautifully the whole way down. Not surprisingly this beer has a lot in common with Nogne-O’s Imperial Stout, but there is just more going on, and it is much more refined. Aromas are full of dark chocolates, a hint of anise, oak spice, and a wave of espresso. This beer is full bodied and full of flavor. Thick and velvety on the palate. Flavors match the aroma nicely. Chocolates and espresso all the way through. The alcohol makes no presence as the barrel aging has obviously mellowed it out. One of the best beers I have ever tasted. Amazing, get your hands on one!

GREAT BEER! One of the best beers i have ever had. Had it from tap at Melkebaren i Sandnes (Norway). Black and oily apearance, with a nice coffe/liquorice smell. Tasted just as delicious as the smell, even though i knew i was drinking shit.. ;-)

Always been a big fan of Mikkellers work, and this is for sure probably his best brew to date if you ask me...

Pure magic! A beautiful beer with wonderful coffee aroma and an imperial stout taste of dark bread loaf, chocolate and dark coffee. Full-bodied and creamy. The best beer in the world!

A beautiful beer that lives up to the hype. Very dark with a tight tan head. Silky smooth with balanced dark malt, hop and coffee flavours. A truly stunning beer that shows what Mikkel is all about. Perfect!

Pours pitch black with a small chocolate ring. Smells strongly of coffee, chocolate, and hints of licorice. Taste is coffee with hints of chocolate. Full-bodied with a silky texture and soft mouth-carbonation, Mikkeller Beer Geek Brunch Weasel finishes with a subtle lingering coffee bitterness.

Très. Noir. Légère mousse moka. Nez: alcool. Café. Truffe au chocolat. Liqueur de café. Herbacé. Grain rôti. Bouche: très ronde/crémeuse. Forte amertume. Très torréfié. Chocolat noir. Café à fond. Liqueur de café. Truffe au chocolat. Poudre de cacao. Caramel brûlé. Grain de café enrobé de chocolat. Liquoreuse. Fine chaleur d'alcool mais loin du 10%. Sucré quoique la finale reste très sèche. Aucun défaut. Un produit absolument exceptionnel.

Instantly on my top five list. It is awesome. It is so smooth, that you want to chug it, but you have to keep reminding yourself that it is $8 per bottle, and to sip it slow. Great job Mikkeller, even if it was brewed from cat poo coffee.
