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.

Bottles, many times. Black pour with some mocha head. Coffee notes are most obvious, chocolate, alcohol, roast. Extreme portions, careful balance. World class.

Color negro con capa de espuma marrón de un dedo de grosor y escasa retención. Carbonatación suave. Textura oleosa. Puro alcohol en nariz. Bourbon, cognac. En boca hay malta torrefacta, dark fruits, melaza, bourbon, cognac, café muy lejano. Supongo que el café habrá pasado a mejor vida. A saber cuánto tiempo lleva embotellada. Ligeramente dulce con gran sensación alcohólica. No está mal, pero supongo que está lejos de la cerveza original.

UPDATED: JAN 1, 2018 Dark pour, dark brown head. Aroma is coffee, sweet malts, chocolate. Taste is coffee up front, quite a bit, sweet finish. Slick palate. Very well done.

ciocanelu (3109) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - DEC 30, 2017
Dark brown color with mocha head. Aroma has sweet coffee and dark chocolate with some dark fruit notes on top. Taste has nice roasted malt notes with dark chocolate and coffee but there is almost no bitterness, just a bit on the finish. Medium plus body, soft carbonation. A really well balanced and easy drinking imperial stout with well hidden ABV.

Pours black with a thin tan head. Aroma of roasted malt and a bit of coffee. flavor is a nice mix of roasted malt , coffee and maybe a bit of chocolate. Overall really good I like the blend easy to drink maybe a little bit of an aftertaste but that's okay.

Good golly miss molly! Jeeper creepers, some kind of stout this is! Deep port-like brew with hints of chocolate, caramel and coffee, but very fluent all of it. You cannot miss this one for sure. Better than their breakfast serving and one of Mikkeller's best.

Czarne, gęste, niska brązowa piana. W aromacie dobra kawa, gorzka czekolada, kakao, gdzieś z tyłu owoce w czekoladzie. W smaku powtórka z aromatu. Na pierwszym planie kawa dopełniona gorzką czekoladą. Do tego kakao i momentami wyczuwalna nuta przypominająca czekoladki z wiśnią/śliwką i alkoholem. Piwo bardzo gładkie, kremowe. Niskie wysycenie. Bardzo długi kawowy finisz. Dobrej jakości, bogate, raczej wytrawne, deserowe piwo.

Аромат превосходный, в основе горький шоколад и немного чернослива. Цвет чернее чем квадрат Малевича. По началу имеется тонкая кофейная пенка. Вкус очень сложен и открывается постепенно. В начале мягкий жженый солод, затем горький черный шоколад и немного кофе. При глотке ощущается винные нотки. Пиво имеет двойное послевкусие. Сразу после глотка особого яркого привкуса не ощущаешь, но спустя секунд 15 наступает сильный кофейный вкус с легкой кислинкой. В целом один из лучших стаутов что я пробовал.

UPDATED: DEC 8, 2017 ABV - 10.9 .Appearance: Jet black, with a thick tan head that surprisingly lingers for sometime. Very appealing beer. .Aroma: Strong scent of sweet dark fruits, raisins. Licorice, bittersweet chocolate, caramel. Subtle notes of coffee, not nearly as much as I'd expect considering the commercial description. Still a very pleasant aroma on this beer. .Taste: Sweet dark fruit, chocolate, nice roasted flavor. Some hints of coffee and caramel. Very enjoyable finish, aftertaste is slightly bitter. Awesome. Alcohol is well hidden as well. .Mouthfeel: Thick, chewy, creamy, rich. Full bodied yet easy to drink. .Overall: A. .Well balanced imperial stout, nice combination of aromas and flavors. Mouthfeel is very enhancing, rich and velvety. Only knock - if your going to have 'one of the worlds most expensive coffees' as an adjunct, it should be the focal point of the experience. Not much of that coming through, at all. Still, top notch.

0,33 bottle, bbe 13.05.26 Aroma of coffee, dark chocolate, light roasted malts and sweet caramel sugar with some alcohol fumes lingering beneath. While drinking you can't decide if you're more impressed by the superb oily mouthfeel or the intense and really well balanced taste of coffee/malt/oat/chocolate with some fruity notes on top. The alcohol is noticable but well hidden for the high abv. Great brew that makes you addicted instantly.
