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.

ineedbeer (1916) - 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

Bottle and tap - tasted this few times. Sensoric. Pitch black with medium, semi-thick, light brown head. Poor head retention and lacing. Strong roasted malts aroma, mainly fresh brewed coffee, but party some notes of wet, cold ground coffee beans. Simultaneously you can experience nice smooth cocoa nibs, vanilla and dried fruits (plums, raisins) aromas, along with pleasant toffee and caramel notes. Lightly boozy character in the background. No artificial flavor here, which is nice. Taste is semi-sweet in the beginning, but from the middle it becomes bitter and intensifies in the end. The bitterness stays constant and quite long after the last sip. Full body, creamy texture (some describe the as oily and thick, which is definitely not true), in the beginning lively carbonation, but later on rather soft, finish is semi-bitter, coffee, smooth and silk. Very nice palate Id say velvety. In general very balanced beer with perfectly combination of coffee, roasted malts and perfectly timing of all flavors. It starts as nearly sweet RIS and finishes as dry semi-bitter roasted imperial stout. The aftertaste is very long and despite high ABV content it is highly drinkable. But I think its a little bit overrated here.

This bottle is from Nogne 0. The aroma is malt, coffee, some chocolate, some bread. Pours almost black with light brown head, slightly lasting and excellent lacing. The taste is a light bitter. The body is medium to full, the texture very creamy, the carbonation lively and the finish long. Very Very Good!!!

Fat p All In Beer Fest, Gteborg. Smak och doft av kola, kaffe, toffee. Stor, tung, len och st. I grunden en ganska "standard" stout, men riktigt bra! Helt klart en av festivalens bsta.

Coffee, licorice, soy souce, chocolate in nose. Pours pitch black with tan quickly reducing foam. Taste is medium sweet nicely balanced between coffee, chocolate and licorice flavours. After warming praline, dried fruits and vanilla notes are appearing. Medium bitter finish, full to medium body. Overall outstanding Impy.

Very nice aroma of coffee, coffee cake, chocolate, a bit of vanilla, nuts, nice alcohol note. Later the alcohol note becomes a bit unpleasant, but still its very good overall. Pretty sweet, low bitterness. Very thick, almost flat - i like that. a bit too much alcohol in taste still, one of the top imp stouts ive had
