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.

To me this was a very well made Imperial with an slightly unusual bitterness on the back end from the coffee. Drunk this after the Abyss and I think it may have suffered from that. Still very good, but expensive (2500 yen!). Probably wouldn’t drink again at that price, but did really enjoy this.

Has a little age on it, still doing great. Poured black with a light brown head. Has a really nice, solid hoppiness, great balance to the coffee and chocolate. Super smooth bigger medium body. Fantastic coffee and chocolate aroma. Delicious.

rockana (249) - Zadar/Zagreb, CROATIA - SEP 22, 2014
Oily dark brown body with small tan head. Strong coffee aroma, cocoa beans, dark fruits, a bit smoked, roasty, peppery, you can sense some alcohol. Medium to full body. Soft carbonation. Pretty good.

Bottled 330ml. -from Svijet Piva Zagreb. Oily deep black coloured, small brown head that went away fast, pure coffee nose. Roasted malt, coffee and dark chocolate with notes of alcohol and cocoa powder. Coffee finish of course. Smooth and easy-drinkable.

HammerTroll (508) - Pula / Zagreb, CROATIA - SEP 19, 2014
Color is completely dark. Huge brown head. Looks delicious. Strong coffee, cocoa and roasted malts aroma. Coffee notes seemed a little bit unordinary, now i see it’s a coffee from Vietnam. Some sugar. Alcohol is noticeable only in aroma, but not in taste. Full body, soft carbonation, creamy and oily texture. Almost spectacular.

Tusseladd (2) - - SEP 16, 2014 does not count
Bottle, 330 ml, brewed at Lervig Aktiebryggeri. Pitch black with creamy brown head. Very rich and pleasant taste, mainly of coffee. One of my new favourite beers.

sfuen03 (338) - Barcelona, SPAIN - SEP 14, 2014
Deep, thick body with an amazing dark, creamy head. Aroma of coffee, roasted malts, chocolate; alcohol maybe too present, imho. Strong palate, definitely worfh of its style; low carbonation but impressive, complex and long lasting finish. Taste is coffee, chocolate; outmeal also present, as dark fruits and smoke.

Megjelenés tekintetében a szokásos imperial stout tulajdonságokat eleveníti meg, motorolajszerű sűrűség, éjfekete szín és kakaó barna hab tökéletes egyvelege alkotja kinézetét. Illata száraz faháncs és falevelek, különleges fűszerezésű, édesített kávé aromája, az utóbbi összetevő jelenléte tehát különösebb szakértelem nélkül is könnyűszerrel megállapítható - ízének selymes, olvadékony és szikrázóan intenzív, pikáns bevezetője, majd szénné égetett cukorkás, keserédes, fás, és kávészemekkel körbeszőtt jegyei azonban önmagukban nem igazolják kellőképpen a felhasznált alapanyag exkluzív jellegét. Szakavatott kávéfogyasztók valószínűleg elismerően csettintenének a cibetmacska névjegyének felbukkanása láttán, a sör-ínyencek azonban minden bizonnyal egy fajsúlyos, különleges és semmihez nem fogható sör körvonalait vélik felfedezni fogyasztása során, aminek minden egyes fázisa egy gasztronómiai élmény, legyen szó a karcosan megkapó illatokról, vagy éppen a megnyerően induló, szigorúvá fejlődő és mégis tökéletesen kerek, masszív ízélményről.

This is one tasty beer! It has a strong chocolate oatmeal flavor to it and a coffee after taste.

Bottle, 330 ml. Pours jet black with no head whatsoever. Aroma absolutely dominated by strong, black coffee, dark chocolate and roasted malts, with perhaps a little hint of caramel underneath all of this. Taste is notably more complex, with all flavours mentioned above finding themselves joined by a good deal more caramel, some significant dark fruity notes as well as others such as strawberry, cereal, honey and vanilla. No alcohol detectable until the warmth kicks in Sweetness of the chocolate, fruity notes are balanced out brilliantly by the bitterness of the coffee and the roasted malts, and the whole thing just tastes incredibly rich and complex, to the point where I could probably pick out yet more flavours on future tastings. An absolute joy on the palate too, being as thick and oily as the pitch black colour would suggest, and yet somehow with just the tiniest bit of carbonation (unless I’m imagining things). Just superb stuff all-round, and pretty much the perfect dessert beer.
