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.

Bottle 50cl batch 418, from Allen thanks very much. A very dark beer with a good brown head and good lacing. Smell is on dark chocolate and coffee. Aroma is smooth, very creamy, intense dark malt, dark chocolate and coffee aroma but sweet and very intense, like a dark chocolate syrup to be used for sweets. Aftertaste is very long on coffee notes, very roasted with medium astringency, fruit part is low just some licorice notes. Again a perfect creamy body fort such a beer from Nogne brewery, a master brew. Alcohol is quite present at the beginning but the intense chocolate and coffee bouquet does hide it quite quickly.

Tap at Capones. I finally am trying the Weasel poop beer. Pours out black with a moderate tan head. Aroma is of chocolate, heavy black coffee and roast. Taste is complex, thick syrupy mouthfeel, heavy roast, lingering alcohol, and a strong black coffee finish. Im by no means a coffee connoisseur, but this definitely had a unique coffee flavor to it.

Bottle: Thanks to Fonefan, Batch 1: Nice small vast brown foamy head on top of a beautiful black beer! Smell coffee, mocha, roasted malts, some dark spices, fruits and sweets. Wow a black beer to its finest! lots of coffee, bitter, full body, low carbo, long bitter aftertaste, wonderful! Light warmth of alcohol and a bit grassy.

G: Poured into an oversized snifter. A: Pours a very, very dark brown with a good amount of bright-brown head. Plenty of carbonation and excellent lacing. S: Sweet espresso and dark cherries coming in over and plenty of dark, bitter coffee. T: Not getting much of the oatmeal, but the coffee is definitely present in large amounts. There are some hints of bitter dark chocolate, as well as some sweetness, mostly consonant with dark dried cherries. M: Medium to full bodied without a ton of carbonation. The alcohol is present, but not overpowering. D: Lacking in complexity compared with the gems of the style. Still, however, a very nice brew. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 05-11-2009

5oz sample from a flight at Capones. Pour is onyx with an inch of dark brown head; fantastic head retention and moderate lacing on this brew. Nose is roasted malt, hops, dark chocolate, and vanilla. Taste is on par, but the vanilla/chocolate and hops combination roll into the finish and stay the course. That lingering loveliness is probably my favorite part of this beer. This is definitely another brew that should be sampled if the opportunity presents itself.

UPDATED: NOV 28, 2010 On draught served in a snifter pour was black as black could be with one finger of dark mocha head. Nose was exploding with coffee chocolate and toffee. Taste was coffee chocolate vanilla and light hops this beer has a soft and creamy texture and a strong coffee finish this is a great brew

Rating #455, bottle from lbutikken

A completely black beer with a nice head, however duration is not the best. Aroma is loaded with chocolate and has nice smells of cappucino coffee and cascade hops too. Flavor is chocolate, flowers, hops and has a nice bitter hoppy ending, but never too much in anyway. A fantastic stout with nice and rare touches of floral hops at the same time as the demanded heavy elements. The palate is unbelievable smooth, but never thin. I never thought a beer could be this soft - like velvet. Amazing brew.

Bottle. Black color with a brown head. Amazingly compelling palate with the right balance of sweetness, alcohol, coffee, vanilla, oatmeal, and bitter chocolate. Simply delightful with both complexity and subtleness.

Pours oily black with a large dense thick brown head. Intense full coffee aroma with lots of toffee, dark bread and licorice. Thick mouthfilling coffee flavor mixed with spicy hops and some fruitiness. Finish is dry with a rather harsh coffee bitterness. Faint aftertaste of brandy.

Aroma of coffee, caramel, licorice, and coconut. Taste of caramel, sweet coffee, vanilla ice cream and wood. Fantastic beer.
