COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Formerly brewed by Mikkeller at Ngne , Norway, now at Lervig, Norway.
This imperial Oatmeal stout is brewed with one of the worlds 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.

Rich taste. Pleasant aroma. Reminds me of midnight yard dart games in Canterbury. In the buff.

Huge, a excellent beer by Mikkel. Nice balanced stout with really refined coffee-aromas to soothe it all down. This is up there with the best.

Pours out with the tenaciousness of motor oil. Has a aroma of coffee chocolate and alcohol. A creamy palate that is followed by a beautifully complex flavor profile. Rich coffee and malt toasted to perfection. A hint of carbon and a texture of melted marshmallow with the tiniest of bubbles. It coats the mouth and glass with it sweet and bitter lace. If there was such thing as a perfect beer this would be the closest I have tasted ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

damn expensive bottle of dark liquid that has a unique aroma and flavor that stays in the memory. Definitely superior Imperial Stout, brewed in Norway by Nogne. Superior thing comparable to the best American examples of IS.

The price is very high. Therefore, expectations are also significant, that they justify such a price: the smell of beer is very distinctive and specific, divine taste of coffee, also aftertaste. Very dense beer and very good quality. Undoubtedly one of the best imperial stouts in Europe and a serious competitor of the best American products.

Chocolate, coffee, a bit smokey flavor. Really thick oily character. Fresh a bit raw - but after a few months in bottle its velvety smooth. Hands down one of the best beers i have ever tried.
