Ok, so what we have here is a Norwegian Imperial Stout brewed with coffee beans that have been shat out of the digestive tract of some forest-dwelling critter. I never thought I'd see the day. Let's see if I can get through this review with nary a poop-joke.

First off, this is a 500ml bottle, with no mention of how much, if any, mammal fecal matter (MFM) is contained in every chunky sip. I'm not sure if that's a blessing or what. So with a resigned sigh and with my intestines clenched in trepidation, I crack the cap and pour a good portion of this into my accepting glass.

I have to say, the beer doesn't look crappy at all. It's a fizzy, deep black with red highlights and boasts a tightly clenched lacy head that leaves little smears down the sides of my glass as I take this beer into my mouth. So far so good...

Smell-wise, I am both relieved and saddened at the complete lack of weasel-cat bowel movement aroma. But what I do smell is a sort of coffee black-hole, going on and on into a sticky, wet, espresso ending. Deep acrid notes bring back memories of the burnt coffee stuck to Uncle Franklin's pot during those 6am archeological digs for buried pirate treasure. He loved taking me on those. But I digress. There is also here a good amount of hop bitterness, spruce and juniper, and the whole thing is sweet and big-smelling. So to sum up: Coffee, burnt stuff, piney hops, sugar. No cat poop, yet.

Alright, so I finally break down enough to put this beer into my uppermost orifice reserved for such things. If living in the Village in the early 70s taught me anything it's that there is no sense in approaching things involving potential poo half-arsed. At least I think that was the lesson. I raise my goblet to my lips and take a big gulp of Mikkeller Beer Geek Brunch Weasel.

... ... ...

Huh! Nope, not getting any doodie in the flavor, either! False advertising? Not sure... but what I did taste is sweet, black stuff, lots of espresso, almost harsh, quite rich, and bittersweet. There's cocoa, and more than expected hops, along with warming alcohol. This is a Big Stout. Very flavorful. Interesting, but not THAT far removed from Black Hole or Beer Geek Brunch. Rather intense, as many Mikkeller beers are wont to be. I'm sure the oats contribute to the slick mouthfeel. I keep waiting to burp up cat fur or hack up a dead mouse like a spotted owl I saw once on a PBS special, but the only thing I'm getting out of this thick, syrupy beer is a warming sensation that dribbles down my throat.

Is it drinkable? I suppose that depends on how much you like novelty. At the price point of $14 a bottle, I wouldn't be reaching around in my friend's cellar for it again anytime soon, but then, you may like your poop a little more than I doo. Ultimately, Mikkeller Beer Geek Brunch Weasel is interesting, but probably overrated. At least now I can say I've tried civit-poop beer. No shite.
