look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

My first beer drank using the weasel shit coffee. I'm not completely down with the idea of it, but I thought I'd give it a try anyway, thanks to the Old Toad crew at the Ithaca Luminous release.

Pours a dark black, not much foam or head, and a little bit of lacing.

Smells include coffee, chocolate, and vanilla.

The taste is pretty similar. There are some dark fruit flavors that are nice, and not present in the Beer Geek Breakfast. The coffee flavor is nice, but I don't know how much the "specialty coffee" adds to it any more than regular coffee.

Medium bodied, could be thicker for an imperial. Creamy mouthfeel, low carbonation.

A decent imperial coffee stout, though I have had better.

look: 5 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 5

A-Black body. Half finger of brown head. Dots of spotty lace spill down side of glass fast. Retains a great thin top layer of head until the last sip. Glass will be left with sticky lace. Love how the head swirled with the body on top to give decorative espresso-art like designs.

S-Roasted malt and chocolate. Strong coffee. Warm rum notes when inhaled deeply. Raisins. Oats. Graham. Molasses. Wet brown paper-bag. The brew smells cold and dank. Then gets sour, sweet and sticky. Terrific transformation. Meets all the set standards of a double stout and even strengthens and improves on said standard. "Super Stout" smells.

T-Caramel and chocolate malts abound. Quality coffee washes over. Hops are resinous and green. Leafy even. Citrus interestingly comes to play with orange & grapefruit upfront. Mellow citrus mind you, and dipped in chocolate in taste. Dark sour fruits as well are detected. Not too oat driven in flavor where you think "Oatmeal Stout!", but the oats are there. An array of flavors that are genuine and most importantly strong & everlasting.

M-Medium-high body. Heavy and full with enough creamy touch swirled in. Medium carbonation that sizzles. Tongue is coated and oily. Going down the neck the body is thick and gelatinous. This heaviness is softened to a creamier self with time. The sip starts sweet, roasted and bitter like hops/black coffee. The middle is the aforementioned which is interesting. The end is dark sour fruit with a stronger bitter finish of resinous pine & weed. Very sticky, lips will stick to glass.

O-When one category can't be pin-pointed as your favorite, you are dealing with a monster brew. Everything is in tune, cranked UP even, to a higher state of bliss. Something I noted was that on warming, the beer didn't spoil into a sour-prune state like most stouts do. It retained the smoky-resinous-chocolate-coffee flavor until the last drop. With drops of citrusy hop sneaking in, what else could you want in flavor? Top shelf stout. An 11.2 oz. bottle does the job.
This beer is the civet-shit!

look: 4.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.75

No bottle date, poured into a teku

A- Pours pitch black with a dark tan creamy and silky head that retains long after the pour, leaving some nice lace behind

S- big fresh coffee notes with bitter-sweet dark chocolate, roasty & slightly smoky malt, also picking up a fruity berry-like aroma

T- dark and bitter chocolate up front tastes like a artisan dark chocolate bar, fresh espresso coffee kicks in mid-palate and meshes perfectly with the dark chocolate. Fresh cream flavor with a hint of oat adds an incredible smoothness, fruity berries add a light sweetness. The finish gives more dark chocolate with a slightly bitter finish

M- medium body and low carbonation lead to an incredibly smooth mouthfeel and a silky and velvety finish. Just a hint of alcohol at the end, incredibly smooth and drinkable

O- I had the calvados version and loved it, so I was looking forward to trying the base beer, this didn't disappoint. The coffee flavor is world class and mixes brilliantly with dark chocolate malt flavors with a perfect mouthfeel. World class

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A - 4 - dark brown black beer with an initial mocha head that immediately fades to nothing.
S - 4 - coffee, roasted malts, chocolate, oatmeal, nothing too crazy or special
T - 4 - again, coffee, oatmeal, roasted malts, chocolate, plus maybe a tiny bit of burnt flavors, even burnt rubber
M - 4 - its' pretty creamy and chocolate milkshake like, but I'm finding with coffee stouts that the coffee decreases the complexity a lot of the time because it's overpowering. Thick mouthfeel tho, alc covered, aftertaste = coffee.
O - 4 - I'd love to try this with the other coffee stouts (Founders Breakfast Stout, Santa Fe Imperial Java Stout) and see whose shines above the rest.

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

not sure how i have missed this base version, i have had a number of its barrel aged variants, and loved every expensive drop. this one is far less intimidating both in price and in looks in the glass. its not so black or so dense, less concentrated than those little bottles of heaven. bakers chocolate in color, oatmeal colored and textured head with excellent retention. a handful of yeast bits in to the bottom of the glass are noticeable if i really focus in on them. the aroma of this beer is great, but not as coffee forward as i expected it to be, or as i remember the others being. its sweet and subtle coffee, no bitterness at all, just a little of that from the high levels of roasted barley here. more earthy than bitter, with a chocolate milky sweetness towards the end. the flavor agrees with the nose, and the coffee serves only to accent, not flavor, this brew. i love the frothy sweetness in the finish, which is inextricably linked to its velvety and expansive texture. i get almost toasted marshmallow in this, more like a cappuccino rather than a normal cup of joe, lots of milk froth type balance to this. for a big black stout this is remarkably elegant, with well hidden alcohol strength and a pillowy mouthfeel that stays on the tongue. gently flavored with the coffee too, an enormously difficult task in brewing from what i understand. world class coffee stout, with very few equals, but i prefer the barrel aged variants, they take this to the next level. really nice to finally have the base beer through.

Date: 4/7/14
Location: Whole Foods Gowanus
Glassware: Tulip
Appearance: an aggressive pour gave the beer a brown thumb width size head. Decent retention. The beer itself is black. Not a bad lacing as the beer is consumed.
Aromatics: Strong notes of coffee and bitter chocolates. Some very dark and rich malts.
Flavor: This is a sort of attack on the senses. The chocolate is hitting my tongue and making me think very sweet, whole the coffee is given me both roasted and burnt flavors. The coffee flavors give off a very dry sensation on the palate. There is a touch of hop tart.
Mouthfeel: The mouthfeel is very smooth on the tongue but very dry in my throat. It's almost bordering on harsh. It absolutely makes me want to drink more to clear my throat.

Pours a deep brownish black from the bottle with a foamy brown head that last some time. Lots of lacing. The aroma is of coffee, chocolate and dark fruits. It tastes exactly as it smells: coffee, chocolate, plum and raisins. It's really boozy and nicely bitter. Oily mouth. This is both complex and straightforward, and a great coffee stout.

4.43/5  rDev +2.5%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.5

Pours a rolling, incredibly thick dark brown head, with fantastic retention, huge body and fluffiness, and thick, nice lacing that clings to the glass. Multiple pours to get it all into one glass. Brew is super dark brown if not black, like a dark nut or wood, and completely opaque.

First impression of the aroma is a grape-tinged booziness, but that gives way to a creamy, smooth, chocolate-and-roast-coffee themed barley brew.

Flavor follows the nose, yet is entirely surprising! A tiny, tiny bit of fruity tartness hits the tongue first, followed by thick barley notes, a huge wave of smooth chocolate, and then a finish of black roasted coffee and berries. That's off of a single sip; unbelievable combination of flavors. Other notes: cream, dark cacao, and again with fruity berries. The coffee notes are firmly in the background, and adding bitterness at the end (as roasted barley).

Nice thick and creamy feel; chewy. Nice sting if you chew on it for a while, which also gives the impression that you're munching on a bar of super dark chocolate. A little earthy bitterness lingers as an aftertaste; not entirely pleasant, but not exactly bad, either.

Wow, this is one impressive beer. A very interesting showcase of flavors, mostly the same ones you'd expect in any coffee stout, but in different proportions, and highlighted in different ways. Great mouthfeel. Brunch Weasel or not, this could easily be a dessert by itself.

Pours like well used motor oil, thick & black with a pinky of caramel colored head. Alright lacing & head retention, nice viscious look to this...

S: Coffee & a bit of vanilla, a bit of raw boozeyness once warm

T: Coffee, roastyness, dark chocolate & caramel up front. More caramel, & roastyness once warm, coffee fades a bit & a faint booze bite presents itself. Finishes dry, roasty, with dark chocolate & caramel

MF: Thick, chewy, smooth, some warming notes

Drinks easy, very well put together, the only drawback on this: Price. I can do almost as good for the money & end up with way more beer in most coffee beers of this ilk. Glad I got to try it though

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.

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.

Jet black. Completely opaque. Weak head. Some lacing.

Highly roasted burnt charcoal and tobacco aroma. Lots of coffee. Smooth oats. Rich dark fruit.

Roasted malt dominates, charcoal, baking chocolate, tobacco, burnt toast. Smooth oats and sweet maple syrup and molasses balance the bitterness. Assertive earthy hop. Extremely well balanced.

Full bodied yet not syrupy. Super dry finish. Very well carbonated.

Truly exceptional. Super intense and complex yet perfectly balanced.

A Black, syrupy, dark brown head that is not too thick and dissipates fairly quickly.

S Bitter coffee bean. Very strong. Toffee. Cocoa. Sugary malt.

T Fantastic blend of flavors: Rich coffee, bitter dark chocolate, molasses, caramel, raisin and plum. All of this melds so well together. All are prevalent but none overpower.

M Full. Finishes with a bit of afterburn and the coffee lingers.

O One of the best, if not the best, non bourbon barrel aged stouts I have ever had. Just perfectly done. The aroma, taste, and lingering aftertaste are just awesome. Beautiful.

12 oz.

Pours ink black, dark tan film for a head.

Smells of oats and rich dark roasted coffee with some almost ashy smokey aromas.

Flavor is off the charts. Decadent cocoa and caramel mixed with dark roast coffee and oat malts with hints of bourbon and a smokey bitter finish. There may be just a hint of cherry hiding in there somewhere.

Full velvet mouthfeel with a light tingle of carbonation over the roof of the mouth.

Fantastic. I have had exactly one stout I liked better than this, and that was KBS. And I've had a lot of stouts. This is truly world class. One of the best beers I've ever had and well worth seeking out.

Got growler from Perfect Pour poured into New Belguim globe

A-Pitch black body, with one finger brown head, that dissipates quickly.

S-Delicious, rich, complex aroma like melting dark chocolate, cocoa and coffe beans, dried dark fruits, roast, some alcohol burn.

T-Taste is also very complex, with generally the same aromas and a perfect balance between sweet and bitter.

M-The mouthfeel is full, creamy, with a lively carbonation and it finishes very complex again, with a medium bitterness. Prefectly balanced.

O-Amazing! Perfectly balanced, bursting with complexity, yet dangerously smooth to drink, because of the pretty well hidden alcohol and the sparkling carbonation. This is an Imperial Stout how I love it!

Poured from 330mL bottle into a tulip.

Appearance: entirely, completely, unremittingly black with a thick finger of creamy brown foam. There's a nice retention and a nice lace on the glass. Excellent.

Smell: rich, green aroma of coffee and sweet malt. That green element is quite big -- I'm getting something like aloe in there. It's rich and enticing.

Taste: rich coffee flavor without being acidic or acrid. A sweet, dark maltiness underscores this flavor with toffee, a little bit of chocolate, and plenty of ashy roastiness. There is a little bit of astringency at the end, along with a pretty strong bitterness. If you like coffee stouts, this will absolutely be for you.

Mouthfeel: medium body with a good level of carbonation and a decent creaminess. Good, although a little more smoothness would be nice.

Overall: I really like this beer. I don't know if it's worth all it takes to make, but it's a solid coffee stout.

Black with a thin, thin brown head.

Not much nose-wise but some coffee. Not bold, though.

Dark chocolate's the highlight for me. Right up it's rich and has that bittersweet finish. Coffee's not subdued or relegated to a compliment, rather an awfully smooth colleague. Alcohol's not all covered, but it is a beer and it's a tad hot. Rich is the right word for this stout. For the price, though, I'll still take the Espresso Yeti.

Thick but grainy and gritty, which is welcome.

A - Thick, almost black brew. Zero head when poured straight from the bottle. Lots of alcohol legs.

T - Lots of coffee. No alcohol burn, which was surprising for the aroma. Tastes of rich, black coffee. Finishes with sweet chocolate on the back of the tongue.

M - Very heavy, no carbonation, and lots of coffee after taste.

O - Love the idea behind this beer. Very drinkable for %10, but a very heavy price at $10 for a 12 oz. bottle.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Poured into a snifter. No freshness date.

A- Pours a near motor oil black color with a 1/2 inch light brown head that retains well before becoming a thick bubbly ring around the edge of the glass and a sheer sheet of surface foam. Nice drippy lacing.

S- Aroma is comprised mainly of dark chocolate, molasses, alcohol and a hint of coffee.

T- Taste is even more complex with a solid hit of fudge, caramel, brown sugar, vanilla and, once again, just a hint of coffee. Maybe I'm looking too hard for it but there doesn't seem to be a whole lot of coffee presence. What is here though is great. Smooth with the alcohol toned way down for the ABV. Quite sweet which I like. Also a bit nutty.

M- Thick, silky and creamy. Medium-low carbonation and the fullest of bodies.

O- This beer certainly lives up to the hype. While the coffee is not as dominant as I was expecting, it turned out to be a good thing since all the other flavors were able to come through as well.

Picked up a 330 mL bottle of this the other day and have been looking forward to the weekend to try it out. Poured into a tulip.

A: Dark black with with two fingers worth of bubbly brown head after a semi aggressive center pour. Head sticks around for a bit and and when swirled leaves some nice lacing along the inside of the glass which soon slips back into the beer.

S: Smell is reminiscent of coffee but not quite like a fresh cup nor fresh beans, but rather some combination of light, acidic, and bitter coffee. Some lighter chocolate tones in there beneath the coffee

T: roast coffee, chocolate, hoppiness at the end that lingers along with some of the bitter coffee. Quite delightful really.

M: Very smooth and creamy. Medium body. Slides down smoothly.

O: A very interesting and delicious beer. The acidity hides the ABV well. A great sipper for, as the name of the beer describes, brunch!

Single 11.2oz bottle picked up from the Mall of the Bluffs Hyvee for around $9. Labeled as an “imperial oatmeal stout brewed with coffee.” Cool artwork from Keith Shore depicting some kind of cat thingy, a hat and an empty glass. The label basically sells the beer. Poured into a Blind Tiger Brewery snifter after letting it warm up for a while.

Appearance: A pour straight down the middle produced a beautiful; two fingers of dark brown head. The head is dense with a few solid bubbles in the middle. Black body. After settling down a thin, reddish brown cap remained and left nice lacing when I swirled the glass. Looks good for an imperial stout.

Smell: It smells mostly of coffee but not in the way other coffee beers smell. It’s got that spicy, coffee acidity that others have but I’m not imagining coffee beans but maybe a ground, flavored coffee. Lots of chocolate, like one of those pouches of dried hot chocolate mixture with some marshmallows. Also cinnamon, chocolate pudding, and chocolate milk.

Taste: Basically Kahlua and Ovaltine. Big, smooth notes of rich chocolate syrup, hazelnut, spicy-grainy coffee, pudding and a drying alcohol. Finishes sweet with a lingering coffee roast. My burps taste like a mocha.

Mouthfeel: Silky, smooth, and full with a low carbonation. The mouthfeel fits this beer perfectly.

Overall: My only regret is not having any doughnuts around. I’m assuming it’s the coffee or other possible adjuncts they used but this was a different coffee experience as compared to other coffee beers; more dense chocolate flavors, spicy coffee and a silky body from the oatmeal. While this was an expensive beer to try, I’d say it’s worth picking up once as it does not disappoint. If you’d like to try the next best thing after Espresso Yeti then this is your beer. Would love to try it out of a cognac or bourbon barrel.

Pour out as dark as any beer I have seen with a really dark brown, one-finger head with little retention and a tiny bit of lacing. Smell is definitely dark fruits, dark/burnt malts, and a nice little bit of coffee but not overpowering. Taste is really nice. There are the dark/burnt malts and everything that was in the nose but the coffee or something is radiating a nice caramel taste that really sticks out and is quite a nice, noticeable surprise. Mouthfeel is medium thick when swished around the mouth. Overall this is the 2nd time I have had this beer and I love it this time just as much as I remember. I'm not sure if the caramel is coming from the weasel coffee but it really gives this beer a nice kick that sticks out and makes it REALLY good.

4.76/5  rDev +10.2%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Pour: Poured into a snifter. Presents a deep ebony hue with a tiny ring of head that quickly dissipates. 

Aroma: Up front is coffee, bitter cocoa and smoked/charred wood. I'm getting hints of roasted coconut as well as a booze at the end.

Taste: There's a heavy bitter coffee and roasted malt flavor. It reminds me a little of a chocolate covered espresso bean. A slightly nutty/smokey finish that is quickly overshadowed by a bitter coffee and roasted malt aftertaste that hangs on the roof of your mouth for several minutes after siping.

Mouthfeel: Very warm on the palette with a slight, fizzy carbonation. This stout is extremely smooth going down.

Overall: This is a deeply tasty stout. I'm not the biggest fan of oatmeal stouts, but this one has me reevaluating my tasting preferences. This is definitely a beer I will be getting again and in a larger quantity. If you are a fan of big stouts, and see this one on a shelf somewhere, give it a shot.
