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 obtained in trade from atxdelivery. Dark brownish black pour. Thin head. Aroma is earth, booze and straw. Taste is chocolate, burnt coffee beans, black licorice and booze. Wonderfully complex with an oily mouthfeel. Very unique.

Man... waaaaay too late to be hitting this up. Cracked at 1:36am. Thick oily goop slid out into my glass leaving a small yet fluffy dark brown head and excellent spotty and silty lacing. I left the distilled Civet at the bottom of the bottle. I heard if you eat that you get really messed up. Big soft aroma of chocolate, biscuit and small rodent loaf. Vanilla, light spice, random faint funkiness, oatmeal and something yummy that is somewhat burnt. Mmmmmmm so much rich chocolate and oatmealiness in the taste. Totally acceptable roasted coffee which is smooth with massive aftertaste. A bit of alcohol I think - more so tied in to the stiff long lasting bitterness. Soooo damn good this is. Im pretty sure I can taste whatever hops are used in this viscous concoction. Big oily mouth feel, and endless doses of bitter chocolate and coffee in the aftertaste which goes on and on and on. Damn, here I am already near the bottom of my glass and lo and behold - this beer is loaded with a colossal amount of dark matter in my beer. Has the whole thing been like this? Should I have finished off the entire bottle in 15 minutes? Did I need all of that salsa and hot sauce an hour ago? If someone lights a match in here we all die. Great beer, excellent all around, every sip was satisfying yet I did not make cumsies in my underroos.

Appearance is very attractive maybe the best looking beer i have ever seen. Jet black with a thick and creamy inch thick tan head that is not going anywhere. The beer smells exactly like the coffee i drank all across Vietnam. There is also a good wack of chocolate and some toffee/caramel, sugary aromas. Maybe some raisins as well and subtle spice, cinamon etc Very creamy and smooth mouthfeel like most of Mikkellers brews this one seems to turn that smoothness up a notch. aromas translate well to the flavours on the palate there is a slight alcohol finish with good bitterness. The flavour hangs out all day in your mouth its awesome!!!

Pours engine oil black with pillowy, meringue head. Aroma is roasted hazlenuts, dark berries, chocolate and freshly roasted coffee. Wow. Flavours are sweet roasted malts upfront, developing into rich, dark berry sweetness, Mikkeller malt character (fudge, vanilla, peanut brittle), and a soft, lightly bitter coffee finish. Mouthfeel is perfection. The coffee is lovely - very little bitterness, heaps of chocolate, earth/oak and dark fruit character. 10.9% ABV is barely noticeable. A freaking masterpiece.

UPDATED: AUG 26, 2010 Poured from a bottle into a snifter. Pours jet black with a dark tan head. Aroma is strong coffee notes with a bit of alcohol. Lots of coffee flavor, with a bit of alcohol at the end. Nice and thick, goes down very smooth. Who know weasels could produce such a good ingredient for beer?

Strong coffee assaults your nose with a lot of %, just a bit too much. Doesnt pour with too much head but it does form after the pour with fantastic lacing, it looks like a crunchy bar. So dark there is no hope of light ever escaping it, but mine poured chunky, is that supposed to happen? Its a bit disconcerting when your not warned about it. Dark licorice, sweet, sweet black malts and coffe which too quickly turns bitter. The bitter flavour lasts on your tounge, then the coffe come back in. The hops come out later on as you get used to it. Its a bit more bitter and % than I though it would be and pouring chunky doesnt help when I know Im drinking weasel turds.

500mL Bottle. Thanks Andy! Intense roasty, faint charred and smoked wood aroma, with a nip of mint and pine. Coffee comes through as a truffle sort of refined syrup. Pours a dark brown-black, with plenty of mocha head. Flavors are generally bright and clean. This may be one example of a coffee-flavored stout that I can handle. It doesnt taste like church coffee, or half-rotten coffee grounds, or an old coffee filter. Its got a not-harsh, distilled Belgian chocolate with coffee candy or coffee syrup flavor. Not so much a fresh roasted cup, but a sweetened, condensed character. Some odd hoppiness makes this a little rough and coarse, but its pretty decent for a Mikkeller beer.

Just brilliant. Poured black with a huge light brown head. aroma of dark fruits, stone fruits, coffee, chocolate, nuts. Flavor is massive. Coffee and sweetness followed by a sharp hop zing finish. full bodied, good carb. Really intense, but even more memorable.

Bottle. Viscous black pour with a chunky brown head that slowly collapses into rocky islands. Rich aroma of chocolate liqueur, vanilla, coffee, molasses. Sweet, oily, heavy palate with enormous flavour. Heaps of coffee, chocolate, vanilla, treacle, and bourbon. Absolutely delicious!
