4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Draft taster at Bavarian Lodge. A solid black body and dark brown head. The smell is light coffee, with a slight tang of… orange peel. The first sip kind of vibrates on my tongue. The coffee aspect is mild, yet spicy. Like a light roast Sumatra coffee, and none of the roast malt of the usual strong stout. Light on alcohol. Some vanilla notes midway through my glass. After taking my notes, I looked up more details on this coffee, and found that "weasel coffee" is supposedly made much more mellow, even fermented, by enzymes during its trip through the critter’s GI. Not having tried the actual coffee, I can only say it’s reported characteristics come out very nicely in this beer. I’ve also learned that Vietnamese researchers have isolated the enzymes that make the coffee and may be mass producing it, as the ca phe chon civet is possibly endangered.

Another solid stout! I like this a lot. Easily available, the price is a bit high but I think it is worth it. Lots and lots of good coffee flavor.

0.33 l bottle from ’Saveur Bière’, best before May 2025. Pitch black with a thin, frothy, almost stable, light brown head. Sweetish, medium roasty and slightly fruity aroma of milk chocolate, coffee beans, vanilla, some caramel and hints of prunes. Sweetish, slightly roasty and minimally fruity taste of milk chocolate, coffee beans, vanilla, caramel, toasted nuts and some prunes, followed by a long, moderately roasty-bitter, slightly warming-alcoholic finish.
