What a great find at Higgins in Portland! Very reasonably priced too.
A - Poured black as night with about 1 finger of head, which dissipated down to about a quarter of a ring. Carbonation was very low. Looks very viscous.
S/T - Where do I start? Lots of coffee up front with sort of a chocolatey flavor followed by cherry and raspberry flavor. I can tell Mikeller spared no expense to deliver some great coffee flavor, but I don't need to tell Mikeller how good it is, cause they know it is good coffee. And when the lady buys it, it's shit.
Getting back to the beer itself, ample amounts of chocolate with the slightest hint of bittering hops.
The only disappointing aspect of this beer is that the label states it is an oatmeal stout, which makes me question the amount used and the label. The head was minimal and there was little to no residual sweetness, which is fairly common for this ingredient. Otherwise very excellent.
M - Perhaps the richest beer I've had in bodiness, which is possibly from the cold pressed infusion of civet coffee. Definitely malt dominated and hides the alcohol well. However, as the beer warms up and as it finishes toward the end, there is more of a noticeable alcohol feel.
D - Definitely unique in its own right partially due to the civet coffee added to the beer. Very excellent, wish I could have more. Never thought I'd recommend a beer that came from an animal's rectum, but I'll gladly make an exception here.

On tap at The Pint in West Lafayette, IN.
So it's hip to drink feces now? Man, I'm always five years ahead of the curve.
This is a complicated and excellently brewed beer, but it could be fairly reviewed in two simple words: Perfectly Smooth. Just--wow. This is far and away the smoothest high-ABV coffee stout I've ever had. It's like a candied hybrid beverage that takes everything good about coffee and everything good about sweet stouts and has them melt into one another with no trace of anything offputting sneaking in.

I poured this beer and it has a black as night body with a small tan head. The aroma has a roasted malt and chocolate aroma. The taste is awesome it has roasted malt chocolate flavor with some coffee notes. The mouthfeel is smooth and overall a amazing beer.
