Thanks goes out to Ljunkan for ordering the box o' 12 bottles of this one and sharing 4 with me!

Brunch Weasel pours a delicate black/red almost coffee-ish colour with a huge light-brown foam. Looks delicious!

Smells is full of coffee (of course!) and some nice fruity notes. There are a lot of hops and malts in this one as well. One thing is a bit funny though, you can almost smell that it's brewed at Nøgne Ø.

The taste is even better than the smell! Lots of bitter coffee, some sweetness, almost like brown sugar. But there are also a lot of hops, but not in that extremely bitter way, more aromatic.

What can I say, this one goes straight onto my top 20 list of all time.

Overall...Excellent! You could not find a richer looking beer. Poured black, black, as the colour of my truelove's heart. A huge, brown head that faded but an initial display that would have made a peacock hang its head in shame. The aroma a big coffee over chocolate full house. For taste, I am expecting "in your face" coffee, ala Speedway Stout. But, lo and behold, while coffee is there this beer is dominated by CHOCOLATE. The feel is oily, rich, velvet and what else is hidden in those inky, ebon depths. Drinkability? Naaaahhh, I would drink a thousand litres just for the pure pleasure, but would probably regret it. This, this weasely geek brunch, much like a fine wine (one that actually tastes good), is a sipper. But still gets a D-4 out of respect for everything else. You should never, ever drink any of this. I am perfectly capable of drinking it all over the course of time.

Much thanks to cbutova for sharing this. I hope to get one of my own soon.

Pours as black as a weasels soul. Dark brown head is big at first, turning to a swirly cap. Leaves some lacing. Poop molecules...err...I mean sediment at the bottom.

Smell is excellent. Rich fudge chocolate, coffee and lots of dark fruit - dark berries and raisins. Almost a mango/coconut element. Really great mix of fruit, chocolate and coffee. Easily one of the best smelling stouts I have had.

The fruit is also huge in the taste, much more than I thought it would be. Still getting a huge dark fruit vibe, dark berries, cherries, and raisins. The rich chocolate fudge and coffee are excellent, taste pretty much matches the smell. A good amount of sweetness. Alcohol is very, very well hidden.

Mouthfeel is very creamy, carbonation is pretty level, but the most impressive part is how much it hides the booze. Are you SURE this is beer? Not some thinner high quality milkshake?

Very drinkable and enjoyable for the alcohol content. Pricey but Cam (cbutova) tells me the coffee used in this is $600/pound. An entirely different beast from Beer Geek Breakfast.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 5

Beautiful stout with a great coffee sense, and an enormous sense of flavorful balance.

Presentation: 500 ml brown capped bottle. Simple front label design with Mikkeller brown vertical stripes and a dark background highlighting the name of the brewery and brew with a small icon of the weasel. Includes a small paragraph noting the intent, and main characteristics. Shows 10.9 Alc. by Vol. Served into a snifter.

A - Black pour, good brown creamy head, fair retention and some solid strokes of lace as it goes down.

S - Roasted nose, intriguing coffee sense to it with a tamed sour hint and a fruity touch leading to a dash of chocolate.

T - Here is where the brew shines the fullest, what a treat. Like in the Geek Breakfast the taste is beautifully compact and full, long roasted coffee sense. But the coffee lingers with a different sense, even better, it is assertive but rather rich and long, with a fruity note. Roasted malt range with a dash of chocolate is woven with dexterity and supports a nice bitter sense, rather hefty but never overwhelming or competing with the coffee and malt.

M - Fully body with moderate carbonation, very creamy and smooth. Bitterness that while assertive it never takes the full presence and is woven back beautifully in the overall sense of the brew.

D - Beautiful sipper, what a range and delicacy with a beautifully lingering feel in the palate and memory.

Notes: The Beer Geek Breakfast was already quite spectacular but here the brewer manages to even kick it up a notch with an extraordinary coffee edge. Hype aside, it may or may not be due to the civet coffee but the edge, balance and range it provides is something else. Top tier with the best of coffee stouts. Thoughs of Dieu du Ciel's Peche Mortel came to mind as I was sipping this Mikkeller, in particular thinking about brews that got their coffee right and more…
Smuttynose's Imperial Stout, and more so Goose Island's Nightstalker also crossed my mind as I was thinking of the hoppy bitterness here, which was perfect on the Mikkeller with an insinuation of bitterness that always stayed nicely short of these two references but was quite prominently woven with the coffee finish. This is pricey but if one likes good coffee stouts it is money well spent.

16.9oz bottle from Sprayberry Bottle Shop (Marietta, GA). 12.99. No bottle date but I've been holding it about 14 months. Served in a Dogfish Head snifter.

Pours near black with about a quarter finger deep mocha head. Occassional small beads of lace.

Smells of rich cocoa, creamed coffee, mild dates and just a whisper of alcohol. Nice!

Tastes oh, so smooth! Bittersweet chocolate, coffee, mild smoke, dark fruits, wet leather, molasses and a touch of booze. Alcohol is very well masked by the outstanding mix of flavors.

Creamy smooth medium body with mild carbonation. Long mildly bittersweet coffee finish.

The coffee is much more subdued now than when fresh but the smooth blend of flavors and creamy feel are fantastic. I really hope this is brewed again sometime because it's perhaps my favorite coffee stout.

A - This beer poured a deep black color that produced a brown fluffy head that had great retention and left a beautiful lace on the side of the glass

S - This beer had great aromas of burnt malts, chocolate, freshly ground coffee beans, sweetness of brown sugar

T - This beer had a great taste, lots of roasted malts, sweet brown sugar, bitter chocolates, fresh coffee, and smokey aftertaste that finishes off very nicely

M - The mouthfeel of this beer had a medium to heavy body with a light amount of carbonation, very smooth and creamy

D - This probably my favorite Mikkeller, and that is saying a lot, but the overall qualities make this worth it, much more deserving of the hype than the Black Alberts

Poured from a 22oz bottle into my hotel glass. Rich, darkness with crema colored lacing. The smell is a lIttle alcohoic, but I have no problem with that! The coffee is in the taste. Rich and bold coffee flavor runs the course on my palate. Medium mouthfeel that keeps me coming back and now it's all gone. I guess that's a 5 for Drinkability!

500ml bottle poured into a large snifter. Bottle provided by bs870621345, thanks Bobby!

This is Mikeller's normal Beer Geek Breakfast stout with a little something extra in it - Civet Coffee. Civet Coffee, also known as Kopi Luwak, which loosely translates into Weasel Coffee. Produced and cultivated in Vietnam, Kopi Luwak is the world's most expensive coffee, with prices ranging from $100-600 a pound, and some cafes has successfully sold it by the cup for the low cost of $46. So what makes this coffee so special? Per Wikipedia, "It is made from the beans of coffee berries which have been eaten by the Asian Palm Civet (Paradoxurus hermaphroditus) and other related civets, then passed through its digestive tract.[1] A civet eats the berries for their fleshy pulp. In its stomach, proteolytic enzymes seep into the beans, making shorter peptides and more free amino acids. Passing through a civet's intestines the beans are then defecated, keeping their shape. After gathering, thorough washing, sun drying, light roasting and brewing, these beans yield an aromatic coffee with much less bitterness, widely noted as the most expensive coffee in the world."

Yep. This beer has weasel shit in it.

A - Much like the normal Beer Geek Breakfast, this beer is a dark one, perhaps a bit darker due to its lack of any noticeable highlights, just deep opaqueness. The head forms incredibly late, starting slowly before rising out of the depths to place a 2-fingered, copper colored head with moderate retention. The head is foamy and thick, and when it's gone it leaves a silky cap in its place. Very generous lacing as well to complete the look.

S - Now, I enjoy my coffee, but can't say I have any previous experience with Kopi Luwek, but comparing the beer with the normal version, I'll hopefully be able to discern what it adds or subtracts. Unlike the normal version, this beer is much more balanced in the nose. While Beer Geek had a predominant coffee aroma, Weasel offers a more robust and diverse nose. While the coffee notes are still prominent, it is complemented with dark chocolate, almost a fudge character, hops, and a bit of alcohol. Much more sweeter than the original version. Almost reminds me of Southern Tier's "Chocolate" with an espresso shot. The fudge and alcohol notes in that beer really mimic what I'm getting here.

T - Much like in the nose, the taste is just world's beyond what I got in the original version. The coffee tones are surprisingly a but more muted and put in check by the strong, sweet, chocolate. Think of one of the darkest chocolate candy bars you've had, and imagine that in liquid form. It probably doesn't sound too appetizing that way, but it is delicious. The hops come through slightly in the end to add a bit of a bite, along with a slight alcohol heat, but both definitely add to the overall experience.

M - Mouthfeel is medium to heavy bodied with low carbonation. I would've preferred perhaps a touch more carbonation, but the upside to this is that it complements the silkiness of the head. Overall incredibly smooth, with a rich finish that lingers with coffee, chocolate, roasted malts, and a bit of alcohol.

D - Drinkability is high. This beer is incredibly easy to drink and each time I put it down I find it in my hand again moments later. The alcohol is there but doesn't deter in the least and the flavors pop the warmer it gets. Overall a much better beer than the normal version and easily places in my top 5 stouts (which is saying a lot).

This exceptional beer is really fantastic. The deep as midnight with a thick light brown head leaving a thin mustache on my lips. A nose full of caramel, chocolate, and cappucino. The thickness and smoothness in the mouth give way to a deep cappuccino taste with a hint of bitterness at the finish.

Bottle opened on 8/10/11 and poured into a Port Brewing pint glass. Served at 55 degrees.

A- Dark black body, perhaps a tad watery, with a thick mocha head. The head fades quickly and leaves no lacing. Looks like black coffee.

S- Malt, chocolate, vanilla, very sweet. Smells divine.

T- Lots of dark coffee and chocolate. Extremely smooth. And for almost 11%, this has almost no alcohol taste. Really tasty. Also, great coffee aftertaste. The coffee beans used are really unique and leads to an edge over other oatmeal stouts.

M- Low carbonation and extremely smooth. A little light bodied, but would be great with, well, brunch.

O- What an awesome beer. I don't want to stop drinking it. I wish it was a bit cheaper, but at $15, the quality of this beer is still worth it. Top notch.

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!

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- 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.

WOW!

A- DARK opaque brown with a two finger creamy tan head

S- very slight aromas of coffee and roasted malt

T- oh, man. Roasty, sweet and fruity. Honey overtones. Nice creaminess to it. There's hops in it. Seriously. The coffee taste is strong but not dominating. It's like a cup of coffee with beer in it. The taste lingers on the tongue with toffee, plums and ipear. The alcohol is barely noticeable. This beer is nearly perfect.

M- Creamy and Silky, with astringent bite that doesn't really go away.

D- I could drink this all day... if it wasn't so freakin strong.

Overall, this is possibly the best coffee stout that I've ever had. The price tag is a little high, but worth it for a day of treating yourself. I'm going to buy another one, just to see how it ages.

Black body, tan head. Big frothy tan head with excellent retention and lacing. Probably the best head I've ever seen on an imperial stout.

Quite a sharp smell. Definite coffee, a hint of dark chocolate, lots of burnt grain. A touch of carob? Theres a hit of alcohol in the smell too but it doesnt dilute the richness of everything else.

A nice burnt malty sweetness hits first. Only slightly sweet though. All kind of burnt bready and cakey textures mingle at the back of the tongue and strong coffee flavours throughout. Definite chocolate tastes make an appearance at the end too. An acerbic bitterness lingers. Burnt grain and espresso coffee. The aftertaste is like one has had a few shots of espresso and a rich dark fruit cake for breakfast. Except not really fruity.

Full bodied, smooth and the alcohol is well hidden. Carbonation is spot on. Just enough to give a silkiness, not enough to tingle.

Very drinkable for the syle. A slow drinking beer of course, but you'll be taking your time just to savour it for longer.

Brewed with coffee from a weasel monkey's digestive system. Yum! I am a huge fan of the beer geek breakfast so lets see how this one fares. Pours absolutely gorgeous pure deep blackness of a body hosts a three finger peppery carmel colored head that fades to a skim in about four minutes leaving lots of dots of lace. Nose is mouth watering with smooth roasted coffee tones, sweet full chocolate, and a consistent full nuttiness that is very warm and attractive, silky, chocolaty rich and truely mouth coating with just the first sip. Overall the taste is much like drinking very good dark roasted coffee. Big high cacao percentage dark chocolate is very evident on the palate. Maybe some anise towards the finish also. A really well done Imperial. Reminds me of Stone IRS with more dark chocolate and coffee. Mouthfeel is huge, deep, thick and really appealing. Wonderfully drinkable late night sipper.

Reviewed from notes.

A- Pitch black with a dark tan head that builds to a finger in size and retains decently. Nice suds and a fine coat of lace. Good cloud and ring sick around.

S- A great cocoa and coffee balance up front in an aroma with great strength. Dark fruit mixed in as well with a tiny kick of alcohol, very nice.

T- Amazing balance of coffee and cocoa powder. The dark fruit notes blend in excellently. Some definite earthy and grassy tones here. I love how this tastes like dark bitter cocoa powder and not chocolate. ABV hidden amazingly.

MF- Very creamy rich moderate body with smooth carbonation. Slight warmth from the alcohol. Finishes with cocoa in a body that should be a bit thicker.

DB- Very expensive but worth it for this great, unique cocoa powder fruit taste. The coffee could be a bit stronger but it might just taste slightly different because it is pooped out. Great beer, worth having again if I can afford it.

Damn...What can I say about spending $15 on used monkey shit and burned grain?
Answer: "HELL YES".

This is an awesome brew that I might just spend another $15 on. Can't see much happening if cellared but fresh like this is outstanding.

A-Kind of looks like Guinness, even with the way the bubbles cascade down the outside of the glass. Opaque, impenetrable blackness with a dirty tan head. Nice, but just a 4.

S-One of the most complex noses I've ever had....earthy like a dank ass Bordeaux, sweet and ample like a milk stout, roasty like an unforgiving barleywine and not a HINT of the 10.9% that lays beneath, give or take some vanilla and spice.

T-Creamy, roasty, coffee-like (Well, I'd hope....excrement and stout are the two selling points...), vanilla, nice little bitter pinch in the finish with some creamy notes sticking their faces in the door every now and then. Pretty damn amazing, actually. There are very few beers from Mikkeller that I am JAZZED about, but this is definitely a beer that will make me reevaluate trying some of the stuff from them that I havn't tried yet.

M- Thick, full, lasting and CLEAN. Not getting any soy-sauce, or tar in this beer, whatsoever.

D-Very drinkable for its content. Very drinkable for the idea. So drinkable, in fact, that the Alaskan Barley Wine I just popped will have to wait until this puppy is drained.

THANK YOU, Mikkeller, and thanks for opening my eyes on this.

Appeared black with a frothy-brown head. A faint film hangs around for the majority of the session.

The aroma is big on chocolate and acidic coffee, wiht hints of lactose.

The taste is fantastic. Big on chocolate malt. The coffee taste is prominent and tastes very earthy and acidic. The chocolate and coffee together are both strong but weave in and out of each other nicely. What I love is that there's some brightness to the flavor, the coffee tastes bright, as if it was soaked in an orange for a moment. I've never felt a sense of brightness in a dark beer that wasn't a black IPA. Finishes long with moderate coffee bitterness.

The mouthfeel is smooth, although not that heavy. Silky and oily. Not thick and texturous like other oatmeal stouts.

Each sip begs another as you try and distinguish the flavors like a cat & mouse game...cat poop & mouse game I should say...

As good as this is, I probably won't be buying many of these in my time because of the price. But it's definitely worth splurging for at least once.

.5L, batch 470, brewed December 1, 2009.

Syrupy black pour with a modest dark beige head. Laces in spots and sheets all over the glass.

The nose is packed with chocolate fudge, licorice, coffee, plus some subtle alcohol.

This is a huge stout. At first it seems quite sweet and rich, with lots of semi-sweet chocolate and molasses. Then the hefty roasted notes kick in, leaving behind a bitter, dry aftertaste. Definitely for coffee lovers, as this stuff has a lot of earthy, dark roast character. No signs of Weasel feces, thankfully. As it warms there is some nice fruitiness, with an almost blueberry character. Despite the bitter, roasty finish, this stout is well-balanced and insanely smooth. The mouthfeel is ridiculously thick and chewy, with fine, mellow carbonation.

Very glad to have come across a bottle of this, as it's one of the best stouts I've ever had. Here's to my 500th review!

Bottle, recent batch delivered to Georgia so quite fresh. Served at cellar temperature.

Pours black with a good sized dark brown head that recedes to a light cap and ring and leaves some nice drippy lacing.

The aroma is some of the most rich and premium coffee I've ever encountered in a beer, fantastic! While the coffee is the star of the show, the supporting cast consists of chocolate, rich roasted malts, hints of dark fruit, caramel and bread. Excellent strength.

As good as the aroma is, the flavor is even better....coffee heaven! Wow. Absolutely intense coffee experience...perhaps the best I've ever encountered in a beer. Also features some really nice rich chocolate, roasted malts and a bit of dark fruit and caramel. Alcohol is very well hidden for this level of ABV.

Mouthfeel is medium to full bodied, very creamy and soft, low carbonation.

I may have just found my new favorite coffee stout which is saying a lot as it is one of my favorite styles. Words just can't describe...

A - Pours a super brown-black color wit ha finger of creamy chocolate colored head. The head retention is okay reducing down to a ring around the glass leaving behind some nice lacing.

S - Aroma is full of sweet roasted caramel notes and a lot of coffee. There is some good chocolate also in the nose. There is also some really nice vanilla notes mixed in.

T - Starts off with some deep roasted caramel malts and some vanilla-milk sweetness. Also some really nice coffee flavor and chocolate mixed in. Through some stronger coffee flavors with some bitterness and some more bittersweet chocolate come through. The finish is a nice blend of some of the sweeter parts of the beer, with some more coffee and chocolate, alongside some really nice roasted notes that lingers very nicely. Remarkable well balanced.

M - Full bodied with low, but noticeable carbonation. Really nice and creamy but still very smooth. The finish has a really nice, slightly bitter and sweet mouthfeel.

D - For the full body and almost 11% abv, this beer stays really drinkable. The flavors are really well balanced and just very tasty. And the mouthfeel is pretty darn near perfect.

What a great beer. I've had this one at least a year and a half--beyond that, I don't know when it was bottled.

Appearance: Pours not quite pitch black, but the color of extremely dark chocolate, with a little less than a finger of head that turns into a small ring of extremely crisp, fine, tiny bubbles around the edge of the glass. Little lacing, but the glass looks very sticky.

Smell: Amazing--almost smells like a barrel-aged beer. Some roasted malts, thick chocolate and molasses notes stand out.

Taste: Heavy on molasses, brown sugar, and chocolate notes, with the coffee notes more understated. Very little bitterness--which is why the coffee is so hard to taste at first.

Mouthfeel: Perfect--numerous fine, crisp bubbles. I have nothing to complain about--and that's hard to do in the mouthfeel category.

Drinkability: a heavy brew, but the quality and lack of alcohol heat make it highly drinkable. nicely done.

Serving type: bottle

Bottle, split

A. Dark black with tan head and "chunks" falling out of the bottle here and there making a "plop"

S. Like the best cup of cappuccino I ever ordered, holy crap I want to dive right into this.

T. Coffee milkshake anyone? I'll have a large please. Simply fantastic.

M. Rich and smooth but about these chunks, although they are flavorful they kinda freak me out a little, o well if it tastes good eff it.

O. Very interesting brew we have here, not quite like anything else out there, this "weasel" coffee is the "shit" haha

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.

Serving type: on-tap
