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 at Olutravintola Kukko, Kemi - Finland. Very enjoyable beer with great full roasty malty body, the coffee notes of course and nice hoppyness on the top. Just dont get disturbed by the way they collect the coffee. ;)

Bottle. Excellent coffee stout. This is a nice, if relatively small, step up from BGB. Its a full, rich stout with a wonderfully integrated coffee flavor. BGB incorporates coffee quite well (better than anything besides Speedway), and BGBrunch makes that coffee flavor even richer and more luxurious. Its hard to tell, but it seemed like I could taste the berry and chocolate notes of the coffee. At any rate, the beer is quite good, as well. Lots of gentle roast and rich chocolate. Vanilla and caramel also chime in. Mouthfeel is excellent, smooth and rich. Very little booze. Pours very dark with a small beige head. Great stout.

Bottled sample via savvy1982. Black in colour with moderate carbonation. Huge aromas of espresso, caramel, vanilla, and booze. Huge in the mouth with loads of malt, caramel, coffee, dark chocolate, and vanilla. Heavy mouthfeel, but the acidity of the coffee helps to achieve a kind of balance. Quite intense and tasty overall, but I think I prefer the more balanced beer geek breakfast.

UPDATED: NOV 27, 2011 Re-rate from November 26, 2011. Cracked a bottle from last year (got one more left and keeping it until 2012). Still a beautiful brew with a pure dark pour with some globby chunks of yeast (I dont mind). Massive roast and espresso nose with a huge taste. Robust and dark with a complexity hard to describe. A smooth taste with a very sipping like drinkability. Age did good for this brew. Cant wait for my last bottle. WEASEL POOP!!!! What a beer. The pour is deep black almost purely opaque with a finger or so of deep tan head. Aroma is purely oatmeal roasted malts with espresso and coffee grounds. The alcohol is pretty prevalent in the aroma as well. The taste is pretty amazing with chocolate and coffee on the aroma and huge alcohol bite coming in on the finish. The coffee is not as prevalent as I expected it to be. None the less, a great beer.

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.

Countbeer (6406) - Best of E-Town mit 2 Brauhausen, NETHERLANDS - NOV 29, 2010
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
