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.

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!

Savored in Max's Taphouse in Fell's Point with Blind Man Nikos whilst my wife enjoyed a baby shower.

Twas the weekend before Christmas, and all through the taphaus
Not a ray of light penetrated the snifter, and that's about as far as this poem goes.

Beautiful midnight black coloration with brown only visible in the dense head and around the edges. Wafts wonderfully. Tastes of booze, vanilla, and deep, rich malts fill my satisfied mouth. Mouthfeel is rich, lovely, inviting.

An ideal stout for the last, cold days of Advent.

Props out to Lazzman for pointing this craft out to me as I may have passed on this Weasel stout. Mikkeller will be my 100th brewer review in about one year of being on BA.

On tap at the BBistro on Madison St, Chicago. Brought to my table in a beautifully Christmas lit local tavern. Pour was pitch black and a whipped cream half-inch mocha head that would give you a milk-satche upon your first sip.

Aroma is fantastic. Rich fudge in chocolate torte fashion. Fresh espresso bean, dried dark pitted fruit and vanilla.

Taste follows the nose. I do not believe an oatmeal stout will get any better. Like having smooth creamy oatmeal with brown sugar, butter, pinch salt and cream laden....and with a cup of coffee-one sugar please and light on the cream on a cold winter Saturday morning and snowing. Freakin splendid indeed makes me all warm inside. Really no alcohol. Seductive and dangerously drinkable.

Velvety, creamy, rich, viscous, full bodied-really one on the smoothest crafts I've had.

Mere wording does this no justice but writing these words helps me enjoy what I love doing. This needs to be experienced. This isn't even BA and Goose Island Baudonia was the first thing to come to mind-nice company to have. IMO this drinks now to two years due to the fact that the coffee aspect is what drives this craft and could be lost with aging-jus saying. Was reading a review from a 2008 that appears to have maintained itself, only solidifies my 5's for this. Tough watching my last sip go down. Tremendously Tremendous!!!

*Current rating reflects the Nogne (Not Lervig) version.

Served on-draught into 20cl stemware in the Mikkeller Bar in Copenhagen, Denmark. Reviewed from notes. Expectations were as high as could be as this is my favourite brewery in the world.

A: Pours a half finger tan colour head of wonderful marvellous cream and thickness, but poor retention (attributable no doubt to the high ABV). Colour is a solid black. Very appealing to a stout lover like meself.

Sm: Cream, vanilla, chocolate, caramel, toffee, coffee, mocha, espresso, but no roasts (sadly). A mild strength delightful aroma.

T: Amazing. All the notes from the nose and more. Incredible cream undertones, lovely caramel, wonderful chocolate - the best chocolate treatment I've ever experienced - and some biscuity slight honeycomb notes from the midpoint. Absurdly complex, extremely well built, and nicely balanced. The layering is phenomenal.

Mf: Smooth but coarse where it needs to be to coax out the flavours. Not refreshing, but masterfully complementary of the flavours in the body. Certainly the texture is tailored to the beer.

Dr: High ABV but obscenely drinkable. Near perfect quality for the style. The price is pretty fair by Copenhagen prices (40 DKK per 20cl). Incredible all around.

---

07/19/2013: Picked up Lervig's version and wanted to type some truncated notes if they'll fit. Acquired for $8.99 in SoCal. Love the label art on this one; better than Nogne's. 10.90% ABV. Imported by the Shelton Bastards. Expectations high.

Standard pour into a stem-tulip. Served cold and allowed to warm.

A: Pours a fucking gorgeous rich tan colour head. Excellent creaminess, excellent thickness, excellent retention (~10+ minutes). Good lacing.

Body is an opaque jet black. No yeast particles are visible. No bubble show.

Looks damn impressive for the style.

Sm: Rich coffee is incredibly evocative. Roasted barley. Dark malts. Chocolate malt. The coffee is unique; excellent execution. Cream. Aroma is masterfully subtle and complex.

T: Aggressive assertive coffee with accompanying roast and slight bitterness. Dark malts. Chocolate malt. Cream. Roasted barley. Oats. Divine honeycomb. Bitterness is definitely more pronounced than in more accomodating American examples of the style. I definitely prefer the Nogne version, but this is quite well done. Oats. Extremely well balanced and built. Good complexity; not as much subtlety as the Nogne version.

No hop or yeast character. Very little alcohol, if any.

Mf: Smooth and wet; oats are perfectly utilized here. Rich. Near perfect carbonation and thickness. Excellent full body. Superb presence on the palate. Complements the flavour profile quite well. Not too syrupy, thick, or viscous.

Dr: Obscenely drinkable for the ABV. I'd definitely have another, and will have no trouble killing this bottle alone. I like the Nogne version better, but this is masterfully executed stuff any way you slice it. Definitely amongst the best beers ever brewed.

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

Nearly black colored body with a creamy rich looking brown head. Head went away shortly after being poured. The beer looks great sitting in the glass and swirling it around brings back a nice cap of head.

Big roasted notes that smell like burnt wood/campfire smoke. Not a rauchbier smoke aroma though. Black coffee, leather, tobacco, espresso, and dark chocolate.

Bitter dark chocolate starts out with the roasted malts and a bit of cocoa powder kicking in fairly quick as well. The palate is left with a BIG amount of dry roasted coffee and espresso bean flavor. The star of the show here. The coffee flavor is incredible. Smooth, creamy, not to heavy, and very drinkable. Carbonation keeps everything moving along. A touch of hops are coming through also right at the middle of each sip.

A great example of what coffee can do in a beer. Tastes like a fresh pot of black coffee and a shot of espresso were poured into this stout. If you're looking for a beer to drink in the morning or one to wake up to knowing that you're going to drink it sometime during the day, this is it!

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

Enjoyed on tap at Capone's on 12/6 (great tap list, as usual). Reviewed from notes. Served in a 6 oz. snifter.

Jet black! Just a puddle of brown fuzz on top with absolutely no carbonation in sight. Imposing, yet elegant in its stillness.

Faint aromas of nut and cocoa with a hint of dryness. Initially, it seems quite subtle, but the scent becomes more noticeable as it warms, emitting strong whiffs of coffee bean.

Profoundly delicious. Hints of vanilla, nutty, roasted coffee bean, chocolate bar and soy milk. The flavors are so big that they slap you in the face... yet, it's not a rich beer, allowing some dryness to peak out in the conclusion. The flavors come in waves; boldly but not forcefully, making for one of the best stouts ever brewed.

For a beer of such gravity, it's rather drinkable and the wave of warm chocolate makes the coffee bean bite seem relaxed. It's a dessert beer that doesn't make you feel guilty or go into sugar shock. How cool is that?

The three times I've had this beer have been an absolute pleasure. How can dessert be so drinkable? How can weasel shit be so delicious? I may never know the answers.

Beer Geek Brunch Weasel on tap at Shorty's NYC.

Appearance: Served in a Delirium snifter, the Weasel comes with a one-finger mocha-colored head, superb lacing and good retention. Intensely black.

Smell: Smoky, meaty. Country ham drying in the mountains. Coffee, milk chocolate.

Taste: Mineral water, pungent coffee (cold-brewed and iced). Molasses, chicory, maple syrup. Like chewing on a ginger-snap cookie. Sweeter than the nose but balanced. Some hop on the back and a very dry finish.

Mouthfeel: Low carbonation, medium body and flavor. Super creamy, sticky sweet. Dry, slightly tingly/bitter finish.

Overall: The drinkability of this beer is outright wrong. I mean, 10.90%??? This drinks easier and better than Guinness! Could use more body/heft/punch, and price is an issue ($11 per 14-oz serving), but what an exceptional brew. Flavor and drinkability are stunning.

On tap at Bavarian Lodge.

A- Thick darkness. 1 finger foam with light lacing. mocha head

S- heavy coffee, bitter chocolate, sweet dark malts

T- sweeter than I expected with perfect coffee taste. Get a decent amount of mint in the middle. Nice bitter chocolate and pine hops at the finish.

M- silky smooth and chewy. goes down very easily.

O- One of the better stouts I have ever had. Will seek this out at Binny's if I can find it. Hoping this stays on tap for a few days.

On tap at Max's today.

The beer pours a blackish brown color with good head retention and lacing. On the nose, the beer is quite attrative, with plum, black cherry, dark chocolate, light vanilla, caramel and coffee. As good as this beer smells, it tastes even better. While the flavor profile replicates the nose, there's some underlying bitterenss on the finish, which helps to buoy the moderate sweetness in this beer. Mouthfeel is creamy and long, with a long, chocolate and coffee, bitter finish.

Yummm... the beer is expensive, but it's pretty much the crown jewel in the expansive, Mikkeller beer portfolio. So I tend to always order it when I see it on tap at Max's (which happily, is pretty often).

Served on tap at Local Option. From notes.

Appearance: Nearly black, with a very pleasant creamy brown head. Although it does not exhibit great retention, there is some lace down the glass.

Smell: Very interesting. Roasted malt, chocolate, and coffee are the most dominant. The unique coffee flavor is from the ca phe chon coffee, I imagine.

Taste: The first sip is a bit of a leap of faith for me, just because I know the ingredients. There is a very robust and unique coffee (weasel poop) flavor, with a lingering bitterness. Roasted malt, chocolate, a little vanilla, and more coffee in the finish.

Mouthfeel: Smooth and very creamy, with medium carbonation, and a medium body. It is actually a little bit dry, which surprised me, but it was not off-putting.

Overall: I am over my fear of the Weasel, and I would definitely drink this again. The best part about this beer is tricking unsuspecting friends into trying a sip and then telling them the ingredients.

Poured at Max's Taphouse.

Pours a beautiful dark rich coffee black with brown coffee colored lacing .

Smell is mainly of coffee, alittle roasted malt and a hint of chocolate.

Taste is amazing, its purely coffee with little to no alcohol taste, but mainly coffee with a little chocolate and hint of hops. The after taste once again is around the coffee not the stout, excellent.

I love this beer and the weasel coffee take on it. For the cost its a must have, one of my favorites.

On-tap -> tall tulip at Max's Taphouse in Baltimore, MD. A buddy tipped me off on this one being on tap, I went on over to check it out. I'm a big fan of what Mikkeller is doing. I enjoyed the "breakfast" version quite a bit.

A - Pitch black, thin off-white head, no carb presence, nice webbed lacing

S - Has a very dry aura to it. It's kind of hard to describe. Almost vacuum like. There's not too much to it, but it does seem to repel all other aromas. This really threw me for a loop as I was expected a big coffee nose.

T - Sharp dark roasted coffee note, savory and almost salty notes in the middle, clean sour and tart finish.

M - Medium bodied, slight alcohol warmth but not nearly what I expected from a 10.9% brew.

O - As described, this is awesome for brunch. You've been up for a while and don't need the string aroma to wake you up, but you want some of that coffee flavor. Full flavored and high abv make this a very nice early afternoon sipper. I'd get this again without question.

Served on tap at Smiths Billiards in Springfield, MA on St. Patricks Day...thanks Jim!

A - Served in a smaller wine glass. Completely opaque and dark with about a half inch of tan head. Modest lacing covering the glass.

S - Roasted coffee and some chocolate dominate.

T - Again, roasted coffee and chocolate...this beer is so full of flavor! Tastes thick like a stout, but smokey like a porter.

M - Very thick and vicous brew, but dangerously drinkable and smooth. Full-bodied heavier beer. The smokey flavors linger and they cover up the alcohol almost completely...hard to do at 10.9%.

O - Overall a great beer. I feel like I could drink a ton of this stuff, but that is probably the 10.9% already taking affect and speaking. Perfect beer to drink at a bonfire, but pretty pricey.

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

Appearance: Black with a nice mocha colored head that subsides into a thin covering.

Smell: Bits of vanilla, smooth, rich chocolate, and a deep, but not overpowering, coffee aroma that rides on a wave of chocolately oatmeal smoothness.

Taste/Mouth: Rich, smooth, velvety, slick and delicious. This is definitely the best oatmeal I've had. Tastes like FBS on steroids. The mouthfeel is so luscious it's insane. Sweet and slighty bitter roasted malts mix with coffee, chocoloate, oats, smoke; all in a sublime smoothness. The way all these notes intermingle and pop in and out is awesome. Very robust and complex without being over the top at all. An unbelievably fantastic berry note joins the mix and adds a perfect complimentary sweetness and twang. A marionberry sweetness with a blueberry twang. You have to try to find the alcohol, but it's there, warming the palate ever so slightly.

Drinkability: unreal for a big beer. it's just so smooth and luscious it begs for you to take the next sip and savor. On tap this was the smoothest beer I think I've ever had.

A: pours black with half a.finger.of dark tan head. It quickly fades, leaving behind a little lace.

S: roasted malt, semi-sweet chocolate and coffee up front. Then comes an earthy, woody, and spicy aroma I've not encountered in other coffee stouts. Maybe it's the civet poop but I've never smelled such delicious-smelling poop.

T: roasted malts and bitter coffee up front followed by that strong woody, spicy flavor. Warming alcohol on the finish with a bitter, earthy finish. Delicious.

M: thick body with low-mid carbonation. Very smooth and not too bitter or sweet.

D: very drinkable, not too much alcohol burn. Overall a very good and unique coffee stout. Definitely worth trying and different than all other coffee beers.

On tap at capones black friday event.

A- comes to me with a good finger of creamy head that settles in time to leave a thickish ring that stay for the duration. Color.... there is nothing to say about it but black all day.

S- the darkest of the dark roasted malts, espresso, and loads 96% dark chocolate. Hints of booze and anise.

T- wow! right out of the gate this is an explosion of dark roasted malts and coffee, with tons of bakers chocolate, molasses, burnt brown sugar, postum. The layer upon layer of sweet and roast work beautifully together where alone would be just too much.

M- on the way to full bodied but not a chewy mess. Slow creeper carb that builds to a good clip and really keeps things interesting.

D- this is so much better then the breakfast and one hell of an overall tasty stout. the chocolate and coffee in this brew kill it, in a good way. Ill be looking for this on draft again thats for sure.

Finally, I get my hands on the weasel courtesy of Capone's on tap for black friday shinanigans.

Weasel came to me looking dark as sin, a black sky of mo darker, black, in a word. A nice sparse cap of tan hazy brown foam up above leaving small notches on the way down. A nice looking stout. Smells include that expensive coffee they used which has a unique scent to it. strays off the beaten path. Under that a heaping of roasted malt, chocolate, and some nuts with vanilla. The coffee is the main feature here and while the method of production is awkward (weasel crapped coffee beans) it's not off putting and I dig the coffee backed by sweet vanilla and alot of roast and nuts. This is tasty beer and I wish I tried it sooner. Feel is medium plus with a build and a smooth backlash, nothing obtrusive here, semi bitter end with no alcohol, just roast. I could drink a crapton of this stuff, top notch.

Had on tap at Local Option beer geek Thursday event.

This beer is too fresh right now. I feel that my review is a bit tainted since this was the new batch and on tap. It needs age simple as that.

Appearance- Dark black with 1 finger of light brown head that dissipates quickly into a neat little ring.

Aroma and Taste- Coffee, coffee, coffee. Rich and roasty, and a little bit overpowering. Honestly this is very 1-note right now and needs time to mellow out.

Mouthfeel- Thick with good carbonation

Drink- One 8 oz snifter is more than enough.

amateur review incoming!

Appearance: black and brown with a dark brown translucent edge. Little bit of head that dissipated nicely into the dark pool.

Smell: coffee and stouty malty goodness

Taste: rich coffee and yes, the oatmeal is present. The hops come through as does the malt and it winds up just a well-done good feeling taste. Little hint of alcohol on the aftertaste keeps this from a 5.0

Mouthfeel: Brown with a nice body. Yeah.

Drinkability: the aftertaste and the high abv stop it from perfection but on taste smell and mouthfeel alone this hits as one of the best I've had.

Three cheers!!

Served from tap into an imperial pint. Pours black with a one finger tan head that remains throughout. Maintains nice lacing throughout the glass. The aroma was comprised of coffee, caramel, chocolate, and malt. The flavor was of coffee, dark chocolate, malt, caramel, and a creamy followthrough with a lingering coffee flavor upon swallowing. It was heavy on the palate with low carbonation. Overall this quite was a nice brew in all aspects. Not lacking on anything at all. Just wish it were easier to find... Thanks for this one Mikkeller!

Poured a deep black hue with a two finger frothy dark tan head. There was good retention and lacing.

The smell featured a spicy sweetness, with elements of caramel, dark chocolate and coffee.

The taste consisted of elements of coffee, semi sweet chocolate, and caramel.

The mouthfeel was full with a residual coffee element.

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.
