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.

(16.9oz bottle). Pours black with 3 finger brown pillow-top head. Initial carbonation seems to have disappeared. Aroma of coffee, dark chocolate, soy sauce, beef jerkey. As the beer warms, it becomes sweeter with a dry roasty bitterness. The flavors are quite balanced Full bodied with creamy texture. Finish is pleasantly dry roasted bitter. Alcohol is well hidden. Definitely getting the civet coffee-its a unique flavor. Im still getting used to the new coffee flavor, but overall this is a well-made beer and a nice experiment.

Dark rich expresso/coffee with a tight bitterness leading to a creamy desert torte finish on the smell. Taste follows the aroma - tight bitter coffee, some chocolate, vanilla (?), and a whisper of alcohol on an otherwise exceptionally precise and clean finish. Very well done.

Pours a thick, heavy opaque black; minimal, tight dark tan head. Aroma dominated by fresh black coffee and heavy roasted grains. Coffee aroma is very strong and pronounced

"THIS BEER TASTES LIKE...!" (Sorry, had to get that out of the way :-) ). Thick dark brown head. Equally thick and very dark black body. Aroma reminds me of fish sticks that have cooked in the oven on a long side and have a bit of oil on the pan. Obscure, I know, but the first thing that came to mind. Flavor is absolutely out of this world! Lots of smoky flavors with strong coffee and bitter chocolate. Perhaps a bit of toasted coconut in there too. Coffee bitterness lingers and becomes more pronounced on in the aftertaste and on the palate. This has to be one of the most unique beers Ive ever had. If you can get passed the ingredient its best known for you may very well enjoy this one!!

From dkachur @ 12th Richmond Gathering: Coffee and dirt. Black pour with a thin tan head. Licorice, coffee, and currant flavor. Coffee finish. Delicious, despite the origin of the ingredients.

gyllenbock (8684) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - SEP 30, 2010

jcr (2680) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - SEP 25, 2010
Bottle. Opaque black body below a frothy brown head. Aroma of strong coffee, dark chocolate, roasted malts and molasses. Notes of earthiness, herbs, licorice, vanilla and alcohol. The flavor is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly bitter and lightly acidic. The finish is lightly sweet, moderately bitter and lightly acidic. Medium to full body, creamy texture and average carbonation. Strong alcohol throughout the flavor, especially in the finish, takes this stout down a notch. The flavor is more complex than the aroma. More in your face than nuanced.
