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.

ineedbeer (2255) - Oakland, California, USA - JAN 26, 2013
Aroma of coffee and chocolate. Nice light coffee aroma with some nice milk chocolate and some light vanilla notes. A bit of an oak character as well. Pours a nice deep black with a thick dark mocha head with decent retention. Some moderate lacing and small legs. Flavor is milk chocolate and coffee. The finishing flavor is coffee and vanilla. A light oak character. Astringency is medium low. No hop flavor and low hop bitterness. A bit of a vegetative note and some oxidation present. Mouthfeel is full bodied and almost chunky with low carbonation. Low to medium low astringency and medium alcohol warmth. Overall this is a nice beer with some good coffee character. But... I'm jut not sure, it's good but not amazing. The beer is showing oxidization and the complexity isn't quite there. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Aroma: coffee, bit of alc., dark chololate, bit of soy sauce (fine oxidation, don't disturb). Taste: classic, delicate RIS with coffee. Bit ashy, bit alcoholic. Weak head, average to high carbonation in this style.

11.2floz bottle, dating code on cap?? "BF 13/05/26" - BBD? 05.13.2026? $9, large tulip glass. It's near black in color with a thin head that recedes to a ring. Aroma is like what a dark chocolate infused coffee liquor would smell. Deep, velvety palate of semi-sweet chocolate, toffee, and mild coffee flavors. Very good beer.

Many thanks for this fantastic beer to JefVerstraete. Dymek przy tym stylu niespotykane, jak w szampanie buchnal. Przy nalewaniu piana nie chce sie tworzyc, pod koniec lania tworzy sie niewielka lecz opada szybko. Ale za to jest barwy ciemno zoltej wnecz jajeczno-brazowej. Barwa piwa to czern totalna. Smoliste, oleiste, przypominalo mi portery Harviestoun. Zapach fantastyczny. kawa, puding czekoladowy, trufle i goraca czekolada. Smak Rum rodzynki kawa cos w dobrym gatunku mi cos tak sie skojarzylo z Dalmayr Ethiopia (ale wiadomo ze to daleko do Wietnamu), potem kakao holenderskie gozkie i na deser czekolada truflowa. Caly czas ta kawa i rumowy alkohol w tle. Doskonale rozgrzewa w 2 fazie. Serwowane z deska serow hiszpanskich: Don Bernardo, El Ventero, Gran Capitan Curado i Semicurado. Ofcourse for free Catalonia

Daboch (172) - Gdansk, POLAND - OCT 9, 2017
Prawie czarne piwo, nieprzezroczyste. Piana niezbyt duża i dość szybko znika. Aromat i smak fantastyczny. Dominuje kawa i to najlepszych gatunków, potem czekolada, kakao. W tle nuty palone. Wyśmienite piwo

Alpha10 (830) - Ontario, CANADA - OCT 8, 2017
2017/10/08 - Pours jet black with a large, frothy tan head that slowly reduces and leaves moderate, sticky lacing. Aroma is dark cocoa, licorice and lots of toasty, roasted dark coffee. Taste is more bitter cocoa, ash, lots of toasted coffee and a hint of booze. Mouthfeel is silky with creamy carbonation and a long, toasted, lightly warming finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Oh, excellent coffee. Good texture. Many layers of taste - as for me, dark chocolate, oats, cream and good tasteful coffee.

halfonit (1398) - Fall River, Massachusetts, USA - SEP 7, 2017
Pours pitch black with minimal head. Aroma is of big time coffee, roasted malts, and some roasty toastiness. Has a silky, creamy palate with little carbonation. Flavor is of malts, oats, some booze, coffee, and licorice. Has a roasted malt coffee finish.

Manslow (1855) - Warsaw, POLAND - SEP 1, 2017
Z notatek. Butelka 330ml. pite na działce. Barwa czarna, nieprzejrzysta, piwo jest gęste z mocną pianą dość długo trzymającą się szkła. Intensywny aromat kawy i czekolady. W smaku kawa i kakao długo pozostają na podniebieniu tak samo jak alkohol aktywujący się później i przyjemnie rozgrzewający gardło, wyśmienite piwo.
