COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Formerly brewed by Mikkeller at Nøgne Ø, 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.

Fles gekocht bij EtreGourmet, uitgeschonken in glas van De Molen. Schenkt zwart uit, schuimkraag is minimaal en verdwijnt bijna meteen. De meeste beoordelingen hier spreken van de bekende bruine schuimkraag, bij mijn fles helaas toch wat verlies van carbonatie. De aroma's zijn complex en speciaal met tonen van espresso koffie, ik ruik ook een speciale aromatische houtgeur die lijkt op cederhout. Verder ook tonen van pure chocolade, mokka. Het smaakpallet is heel speciaal en verwant aan de aroma's. Zelden zoveel koffie tonen in een bier geproefd, ik heb de ca phe chon koffie nog niet geproefd, alleen nu dus voor de eerste keer in een Imperial Stout. En de smaken zijn heerlijk bitter en naarmate het bier opwarmt steeds zoeter. Het mondgevoel is heel olieachtig, er drijft zelfs een olieachtig laagje op het bier. Smaaktonen van: espresso koffie, pure chocolade, mokka, cederhout en vanille. De carbonatie is heel licht bijna vlak. De afdronk is zeer lang, droog koffie bitter. Het is jammer dat er geen schuimkraag op deze fles Brunch Weasel meer zat, het voorkomt een rating rond de 4,8. Voorlopig vind ik de Cocoa Shake uit de Beer Geek series van Mikkeller nog de beste. De wat zwakkere carbonatie is wel een reden om de Brunch Weasel nogmaals te proberen!

Tap at Øl, Copenhagen. Pitch black with multifaceted brown head and a beautiful lacing. The nose is rather soft, some cocoa and toffee, clearly roasty. Beautiful taste, very sweet but in balance with the power of this beer. Outstandingly delicious!

King_Alex_II (641) - SWITZERLAND - JUL 26, 2015
Pitch black color with medium brown foam. The smell has a lot of roasted coffee. The taste is ultra smooth, sweet, coffeeish with a high viscosity and a lot of bitter dark chocolate. The aftertaste is smooth as gargling silk that has been soaked in chocolate cream. This beer is just awesome, and I don’t like coffee.

APPEARANCE ? perfectly black with dark caramel colored head. NOSE ? absolutely the most coffee smelling beer I?ve ever had. FLAVOR ? for all the great nose, it comes up weak in the flavor arena. NOTES ? Shigadeyo rates this in 2009, and had a much better review. I?m surprised that the beer has changed so significantly over the years.

Doskonałe piwo do analizy jak temperatura wpływa nie postrzeganie genialności piwa. Można rozpocząć zbyt nisko i nie zorientować się że te sztuczne smaki w nim kiedyś się rozwiną i powalą.

Aroma: picking up a lot of coffee, some licorice, vanilla and smoke (like in smoked meat). Smooth mouth feel! Taste: coffee, burned meat, vanilla and coffee. Quite bitter, seems to sweeten when temperature rise. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
