1 pint 9 oz. bottle poured into a Duvel Tulip style glass. Liquid comes out black and stays that way the whole way through. A reasonably aggressive pour gives a dark brown head that gives sort of a Guinness nitro looking effect. Once it settles a bit it gets a dark tan creamy color, very good looking. This beer produces a crazy amount of lacing. People trying to make stouts should use this as a prime example and all would be well with the world!
Smell is really good, slightly sweeter than I expected. Coffee is a dominant feature (as expected) but it's not alone here. Black coffee, bittersweet chocolate hints of vanilla and alcohol (maybe bourbon or whiskey). I didn't expect any vanilla aromas but it was very nice. I don't even think you need to be a coffee drinker to like how this one smells. Once it get closer to room temperature you can detect a slight hop presence.
The taste portion is absolutely incredible. An absolute ton of flavors blended together to the final amazing product. Big helpings of espresso, dark coffee and bittersweet chocolate. Vanilla isn't as strong as it is in the smell but still there. I've cellared this bad larry for about 11 months now, but there's actually still a hop presence in the flavor, strong and earthy.
Mouthfeel is good, it's a slightly thinner consistency than I expected, it's ok though, not all stouts need to be chewy, this is a nice change of pace. It's got a good carbonation level and is silky smooth.
Overall this is an absolutely an amazing beer. Mikkeller really takes this beer to a new level. Any body who loves coffee and loves beer than Beer Geek Brunch Weasel is an absolute MUST. I know Civet droppings are a big ingredient here, but I'm now beginning to see the delicacy here. Good Job Mikkeller!

A- Pours pitch black with a three finger mocha head that leaves intricate foamy lacing.
S-Well there is no shit smell. All jokes aside, roasted chocolate malts and bitter coffee goodness.
T- No shit taste. Rich chocolate backbone with a background coffee presence that is unmatched by similar styles. I can taste some sweetness from the oats as well, and the 10.9% abv is hidden well behind the complex accumulation of flavors.
M-The oats lend a creaminess that makes the mouthfeel very full bodied. Carbonation is subtle and spot on for this syle.
O- This is one of my favorite beers. I was hesitant when I heard "weasel poo coffee" from the liquor store sales associate. I was blown away by the complexity of the taste and smell on this brew. Happy as could be with this wonderful Mikkeller creation, a must try for curious stout drinkers.
