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.

Botella. Thanks a bunch for sharing Pinball! Pitch black colour with a nice creamy brown head. Rovely roasty heavy coffee and roasted malt aroma with chocolate and some alcohol. Great filling mouthfeel. The flavour has lots of great roasted malt with good bitter coffee, chocolate, dark fruits, bitter hops and some alcohol. Very long lasting very roasty dry coffee and bitter chocolate finish. More please!!!!

500 ml bottle. Totally black body with a firm, creamy, brown, diminishing head. Strong aroma of freshly roasted coffee, mocha and hops. A very pleasant aroma that just last forever. Flavor is sweet, roasted dark malt, dark chocolate, roasted coffee and fruity. Nice, smooth and rather bitter finish. Full bodied and almost oily consistent. This is a big and strong beer with lots of flavors, and at the same time incomprehensible balanced and lovely. Definitively on of the best coffee flavor beers I ever tasted.

UPDATED: JUN 28, 2014 pitch dark, large brown head. looks fanastic.aroma is an absoluteliy brilliant mix of hops, cofffee, roasted stuff. so balanced. so strong. so. ummmm.flavor is quite strong, lots of coffee, faint roasted stuff. aftertaste is a bitterbomb of the merciful kind. faint licorcice. this flavor leaves nothing behind. can?t be improved. best flavor so far in 1000+ beers. what can a man do... 10/10.(blind taste aug. 2010:7,4,9,4,18) rerate 8 4 8 4 17. rerate 33cl bottle from kihoskh, brewed at lervig. 10.9%. pitch dark, very brown head, but it fizzles really quickly away.3 aroma of chocolate and coffee, roasted malts, toffee. good aroma but not great, should i guess, the hops part of the profile has been lowered slightly. flavor is roasted malts, toffee, chocolate, mild coffee note, vanilla, some bitter roasted malts and alc bite in the end, otherwise quite chocolate-cake like. taste is good, but far from how it tasted earlier. Or perhaps i stumbled upon a bad bottle. The head was really weird. Tasted from a clean unused glass. rerated to current status as this is what can be bought right now. The other brews of this beer i’ve had, have been extremely fantastic.

yespr (47567) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - JAN 9, 2009
UPDATED: JAN 16, 2009 50 cL bottle. Pours a lovely black and dense fluid with a huge creamy and solid deep chocolate brown head. Light antiseptic note to a solid chocolate, roasted malt and smooth coffee aroma, light hoppy accent. Mouthfeel is fullbodied/thick and creamy smooth. Flavour is lovely chocolate, light marmelade/jam fruity too from the hops and sugars just emerging out of a solid dark malt impression. Slowly increasing bitterness into the finish yet quite smooth. Somehow I liked the bitter coffee notes from the one-on-one marginally better than this, the Civet Coffee certainly gives more room to the beer flavours with it’s more subtle chocolate and bitterness notes. Smooth dark chocolate and mild sweet yet also bitter finish. Lovely.

ToolHead (266) - København, DENMARK - JAN 7, 2009
UPDATED: JAN 8, 2009 50 cl. bottle. Served in Spiegelau snifter. Black with fine, brownish head. The aroma is beautifully coffeeish, very darkly malty, well-hopped, lightly fruity and highly complex. The flavor is deliciously coffeeish - very elegant and yet intense - roasted and darkly malty, slightly sweet, hoppy (mellow citrus) with bitter, lasting and powerful hop/coffee finish that reveals just a touch of bracing alcohol. Perfectly balanced. A magnificent beer; the best coffee-flavored stout I’ve ever had.

KimJohansen (10497) - Frederiksberg C, DENMARK - JAN 7, 2009
Bottle poured in a Mikkeller glas. The beer was black with a huge light brown head. Aroma had plenty of burned malt, coffee and hints of chocolate. Flavour was very rich and vinious and contained notes of burned malt, bitter coffee, chocolate and hops. Finished bitter. Not as good as the limited regular edition I’m afraid. But still a bloody good beer that gets better and better.

Bottle. It pours an oily, jet black body, covered by a tan head of moderate size. Quite big bubbles, and fine lacings, but the head disappeares a bit rapidly. Heavy roasted aroma with lots of coffee and a good dash of chocolate. Some licorice lurking in the background, supported by fruity and slightly piney hops. The roasted malt and coffee are doing most of the job though. It’s smooth in the mouth, oily, full-bodied and slightly warming, with a big flavor of coffee, roasted malts and dark chocolate. Fine hoppy fruityness too. Both hoppy bitterness and most of all coffee-like bitterness. Everlasting finish with a wonderful bitterness to support the flavors found initially. My girlfriend loves coffee, I don’t. With this beer it’s opposite, and I loved it. It’s not an easy-to-drink beer, but damn delicious if you’re ready to hold on to your glass for an hour. And even though you can bury your nose in it as long as it lasts, the flavor is even better. Keep on rocking Mikkel! (090107)
