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.

SebBrews (183) - Bucharest, ROMANIA - MAR 12, 2017
Pitch black pour with minimal, non-dense, quickly vanishing espresso head. Tons of coffee and roasted malts in the nose. Alcohol and oats are also there. The taste is lightly sweet with a discrete salty character towards the end. Notes of coffee liquor-like alcohol, licorice and soy sauce. Silky, creamy mouthfeel, low carbonation, full bodied. Lingering malty aftertaste. Very good.

Pekzwarte kleur met minieme grijze schuimkraag. Geur is koffie met een tikkeltje melk. Smaak is sterke koffie met een tikkeltje melk. Op het einde komt het bittere aspect van koffie sterk naar boven.

330 ml bottle into snifter, bottled on 5/13/2016. Pours pitch black color with a small dense dark tan head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Light spotty lacing clings on the glass. Aromas of big dark chocolate, cocoa, nutty dark roasted coffee, caramel, toffee, toasted oats, dark bread, marshmallow, and molasses; with lighter notes of vanilla, cream, smoke, dark fruit, herbal, wood, and roast/toasted earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of dark/roast/bready malt, coffee, and light-moderate earthy hop notes; with great strength. Taste of huge dark chocolate, cocoa, nutty dark roasted coffee, caramel, toffee, toasted oats, dark bread, marshmallow, and molasses; with lighter notes of vanilla, cream, smoke, dark fruit, herbal, wood, and roast/toasted earthiness. Light-moderate herbal/woody hop and roast malt/coffee bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of dark chocolate, cocoa, nutty dark roasted coffee, caramel, toffee, toasted oats, dark bread, marshmallow, molasses, light vanilla/dark fruit, herbal, wood, and roast/toasted earthiness on the finish for a while. Incredible complexity, robustness, and balance of dark/roast/bready malt, coffee, and light-moderate earthy hop flavors; with a great roasted bitter/sweet balance, and zero cloying/astringent flavors after the finish. Light dryness from roast/hop bitterness, lightly increasing through the glass. Medium carbonation and fairly full body; with a very smooth, creamy/silky, and lightly sticky/chalky balanced mouthfeel that is great. Minimal warming alcohol for 10.9%. Overall this is an incredible imperial coffee oatmeal stout! All around outstanding complexity, robustness, and balance of dark/roast/bready malt, coffee, and light-moderate earthy hop flavors; very smooth and easy to sip on for the big ABV. Very unique/intense on coffee complexity and awesome balance with the base oatmeal stout. A highly enjoyable offering.

Fules (1231) - Gyöngyös, HUNGARY - FEB 26, 2017
Kicsi gyorsan olvadó, barna hab, fekete szín. Illata nagyon finom, csokis, kakaós, aszalt gyümölcsös, enyhén kávés. Édeskés, csokis, kakaóporos, kávés ízvilág markáns hordós és aszalt gyümölcsös aromákkal. Testes, közepesen keserű, enyhén szénsavas, némi alkoholos beütéssel. Minden ízkomponens erőteljesen jelen van, egy sok is a jóból. Ettől függetlenül nagyon finom, jó arányokkal rendelkező sör.

eXORRO (249) - POLAND - FEB 25, 2017
Small brown head quickly dissapearing. Aroma is intensive. Coffee, dark chocolate, cocoa, roast, almonds, vanilla. Flavour is dominated by coffee. From behind we can taste chocolate, rum, almonds, caramel, some licorice notes. Medium-high body. Soft carbonaton. Bitter is appropriate, comes from hop. Alcohol perfectly hidden. Very nice Imperial Stout.

UPDATED: MAR 8, 2017 Bogactwo zajebistości jakie niosą ze sobą ciemne słody, kakao, czekolada, bardzo dużo intensywnej kawy, espresso i pralinek czekoladowych, słodki zapach, miły. Prezentuje się niesamowicie - nieprzejrzysta czerń i obfita, o ultra drobnych ziarenkach beżowa piana, która potem całkowicie znika. W smaku bardzo intensywnie, bo wystarczy malutki łyczek by rozlała się wszędzie w ustach kawa, gorzka czekolada, kakao. Kawa tu temat przewodni i jest jej naprawdę wiele, posmak jest bardzo długi, zdecydowanie nie #TEAM_słodyczka bo czekoladowo-kawowa goryczka odkłada się na długo po pierwszym łyku - ale piwo wcale nie zniechęca do kolejnego łyku. Pod koniec wychodzi likier kawowy i pralinki kawowe. Bardzo dobre piwo o intensywnym smaku i aromacie, pełne, oleiste. Alkohol raczej z tych szlachetnych, rozgrzewający, jak w cukierkach z brandy.
