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.

This is the best beer i have tasted. To bad that the weasel that "make" the coffeebeans in this beer is living under unhuman circumstances. De Molen made one imp.stout with same beans and stopped making it when this was revalded. I expect that mikkeller does it too.

Moolesen (152) - 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.

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.

BOLTZ7555 (2780) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - FEB 25, 2009
UPDATED: NOV 13, 2011 Visually stunning!!! The body of this beer truly absorbs every ounce of light around it; the blackest of blacks. Enormous cotton-like latte-colored head; exploding bubbles making holes like that in swiss cheese. Pungent aroma of fresh coffee, toasted nuts, and bitter chocolate. Molasses, brown sugar, intense dark roasted Starbucks, and Godiva. Creamy, sticky, and filling. The 10.9% is invisible....this is some good shit!!! BUMP!!!

Ummm... there is something about scatological brews that is disturbing. I remember my dad used to say: "So, if all of your friends ate shit, would you join them?", in response to an: "Everyone else was doing it..." statement. I think the guests on Maury have more sense! Here is a thought... just soak the coffee in a similar enzyme that eliminates the shit-picking stage. Mmmmm! That stuff leaves a shit-eating grin on my face!

UPDATED: FEB 17, 2014 Wow, a nice surprise from friend @trevor211. Great dark pour with ring of off white head. Boozy, irish coffee nose. Sharp coffee (unique too, it comes through) and boozy taste. Intense, acidic and some surprisingly nice spice and fruit. Scary intense flavors, awesome. Rating #300.
