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.

Wow. What a fantastic beer. Pours an incredibly dark and thick brown/black. Small but creamy brown head that dissipates leaving a coffee coloured ring in the glass. Aroma is strong, as soon as I popped the bottle could detect coffee, and almost an oaky bourbon scent. Flavour is coffee and an almost sweet tone. Wonderful and warming - this is a beer to be sipped. Loved it.

Got this 500ml bottle at Pinocchios and poured into a Duvel snifter. This beer pours black with a two-finger mocha-colored head settling to a coating which lasted throughout. Lacing was irregular but interesting and present at the last sip. Nose was coffee, chocolate, some dark roasted malt. Taste was coffee, dark chocolate,molasses, roasted malt and some spice, including pepper. Aftertaste was mildly bitter. Not a lot of carbonation, the mouthfeel was creamy, rich and thick. There is some noticeable alcohol. A little too expensive for me to try very often, but off this first try, I would certainly want to.

Bottle, pours thick molasses w/ scant rimed head, grade A maple syrup on edges, aroma is rum, dried fruits, light roast, very assertive, light touch of dried fruit up front followed by roasted malt, very complex and delicious coffee about 3/4 through with a big warm booze hit on finish, residual acid and boozy warm remain on the pallate, a very well-done and unique coffee stout

500ml bottle. Black with a coat of tan head head that lasts all the way. Some gelatinous goop at the bottom of the bottle has been reintegrated by swirling by the time I get down to the bottom of the glass. Aroma of coffee, cocoa, vanilla, brandy, heavily roasted malt, mint. Taste has licorice, bitter cocoa, coffee, pine, mint. Some berries appear as it warms. Only a little sweetness, and its indeed quite reminiscent of Vietnamese iced coffee. Long finish has coffee astringency, roasted and hop bitterness (pine and citrus peek out), cocoa. The oats were trying to make this silky but its a bit oily too. Alcohol sticks out quite a bit. Theres considerable complexity under the licorice and coffee but the flavours dont meld and they whack rather than envelop. Maybe a bit more age (this is best before 10/12) would have helped. Little that I _really_ liked about Beer Geek Breakfast shows up in this one, but its pretty good.

Bought in De Molen beershop. Beautiful black colour with a creamy beige colored head. Lovely aroma. Dark chocolate, coffee, raisins. Rich and sweet taste, roasted- very soft bitter finish, slightly carbonated. Smooth, balanced & complex... very good

I think I just came to understand the mikkeller hype. After a number of disappointing stouts from them, this brew hits mark. Aroma is coffee with dark fruit. Appearance is black with a small tan head. Taste is coffee, chocolate and maybe a little raisin. Palate is very smooth with a little bit of almost chalky dryness. Real nice beer.

UPDATED: SEP 20, 2014 thanks to Thomassova4, i had this side by side w/ Beer Geek Breakfast...and there was no comparison. While it was significantly stronger, it was smoother and easier to drink. the coffee, cocoa aroma was intense, as was the flavor. more sweet than bitter. the beer is warming, otherwise no hint of it being nearly 11%. Mikkellers smoothest beer ever. intense and mellow at the same time. lingering bittersweet coffee finish.On 6/10-tap...aroma and feel even better if possible!" 4.5 bottled, 4.9 tap/nitro.

Black colored beer with a thiny small brown head leaving only a thin creamy layer. Aroma of fruits (prums) and coffee. Taste: coffee, fruityness and caramel. Dry bitterish finish. Excellent coffee stout.

Hmmm...I can understand why peeps are so down with this high viscosity beverage. I adore coffee stouts and this one is certainly worth the opening, however, it is not the best I have had. Extremely dry, check; nice coffee and espresso flavors, check; worth $14 for 17oz bottle--no sir.

Bottle from Foodery II in Philly. Split with JRedmond and PatrickFannon. Pour is a perfect pitch black with a thick mocha colored foam atop - leaves a ton of lacing all over the glass. Smell is a espresso, cocoa, peppers.. some heat from the alcohol. Delicate but bold taste. A real treat.
