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.

On tap at Haandverkeren. Totally black with a thick cocoacolored head, looks just great. Chocolate, malt and coffee aroma, and a tasty licorice that grows in my mouth, with a bitter feel. One of my favourites!

Pours a pitch black with a thin brown head. Aroma a nice blend of alcohol, chocolate, dark fruit and coffee. Flavor is strong roasted malts, coffee, and chocolate. There is a decent amount of hoppy bitterness in the finish as well. The alcohol is well hidden in the taste. Normally I can’t stand the taste of coffee, but this actually tastes good.

UPDATED: NOV 4, 2014 Bottle @ home. Oil black appearance with deep brown head that dissipates pretty quickly. Somewhat hoppy nose with dark malts and a hint of red fruits and a bit spicy. Very complex nose. Fairly easy drinking and not too thick of body. Sort of a dark fruity flavor with a very unique coffee flavor. Slightly fruity and mostly dark roasty malty finish.

Damn near perfect beer - wouldn’t change a thing. Won’t drink often though at 25 a bottle.

Bottle from Cavie. Blavk pour with a tan head. Aroma is alcohol, chocolate, coffee, rodents, and lots of dirt. Taste is lots of roasted coffee beans, chocolate, poop, and a little alcohol. Big coffee finish.

#2400. Bottle with big thanks to Sparky! Very, VERY excited to see this one! This is one of the best imperial stouts in the world, and I was very fortunate to receive this bottle in a trade, totally unannounced. This beer is brewed in Belgium and is made from the most expensive coffee on Earth. The coffee beans are eaten by a Civet Cat in southeast Asia, is digested and defecated out. These beans are picked out of the poop and used in the brewing of this beer. If that doesn’t make you want this beer, nothing will. It pours a very dark black color with a beige head. Swirling it around creates a nice resiny color on the edges of the glass. The aroma is very nice. Coffee, dark chocolate, sweet malts and residual sugars. A bit of toasted notes also on the nose. Very nice. The flavor is silky smooth. Lovely dark malts and smoooooooth coffee. Toasted coffee grounds and roasted notes. This is so awesome! If you ever have the chance to try this, I highly encourage it!

Tasted a bottle at Henrik Øl & Vinstove in 2009. A fantastic version of the Beer Geek Breakfast. The change in type of coffee really shines through. Pours dark and black with little head. Tastes of roasted malts, chocolate and coffee. A must-sample.

500ml bottle, pours with a rich nitrogen head that rises to the top of my pint, great deep roasty coffee aroma, very rich. This is very very very good, the Weasel Poop really adds a complex and deep coffee aroma. Nice.

PhillyCraft (7937) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 31, 2011
Bottle. 22 oz dark, smoky, literally-shit brewed beer. Pour is solid black coffee with a thick, creamy, frothy roast head. Aroma of bitter-sweet dark chocolate, Portobello mushroom, fresh roast espresso, bitter-sweet cocoa nibs, toasted malts, vanilla, soil, and a bunch more espresso. Full bodied with a thick, velvety, sticky, viscous sludge palate. Creamy and smooth through the finish with a subtle, embracing warmth. Excellent Imperial stout.
