A: Pours a dark black that looks like used motor oil. Not much appearance on the head, but it did have a little bit of caramel colored head on it that went away quickly. Still has a ring around the top, and some film left on it.

S: Dark roasted malt, with a smell of coffee on it obviously. Has a hint of chocolate on the smell.

T: Dark roasted malts, and a coffee taste. It tastes just like it smells.

M: Lighter body than I would expect, although it is leaning toward medium. Its blended nicely, with just a few prominent flavors. Light to Medium carbonation.

O: A nice stout to drink, probably the best I've had. I've got a growler of this stuff to go through, and I think I'll enjoy it along. Unforunately I dont have too much to say about it, other than its a tasty brew.

Pour It Black

Black as black with a thin brown head and sheets and spiderwebs of lace left all the way down the glass. Shiny and gorgeous.

A very aromatic stout consisting of plenty of roasted malts and rich, authentic coffee along with a note of molasses sweetness.

The flavor follows the aroma very similarly: coffee is leading the way, followed by roasted malt, and sweet molasses.

Big, thick, luscious mouthfeel.

Easily my favorite Mikkeller offering so far.

Bottle poured into a tulip glass. Beer pours a very dark and opaque brown with two fingers of milk chocolate brown colored creamy head. Head is mostly small bubbles that cascaded down on the pour as expected from an oatmeal stout, with a few large bubbles mixed in, with great retention before it slowly dissipates to a half a finger, leaving thick lacing trails on the glass. Really nice looking beer.

Nose is astringent roasted coffee, very sweet milk chocolate, fudge, molasses, and a bit of booziness.

Coffee roast is a bit nicer on the tongue, fruity and less astringent from being burnt. Nice light roasted bitterness upfront, sweet milk chocolate dominating mid tongue. Lots of lingering roasted bitterness, fruity coffee and milk chocolate on the finish. Not much booziness on the taste, but still a sipper with how bold the flavors are.

Full body, viscous with some light carbonation, really coats your tongue and mouth to contribute to the long finish. The coffee does really shine on this beer, rich, fruity and good.

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!

Poured from 16.9oz bottle into Bordeaux glass.

Aroma: Mocha, fruity raspberry, dry, roasty coffee, malted milk, some tart alcohol/fruitiness, and even a little bit of vanilla. The best aroma on a coffee stout that I've smelled.

Appearance: Thick, dark tan, frothy, 2 finger head. Pitch black expresso body. Nice, sticky lacing.

Flavor: A very nice, highly complex rich, roasty chocolate/coffee flavor. Strong, but not overwhelming bitterness. No acidity/tartness as the aroma led me to anticipate. The booze is very well hidden in this one.

Mouthfeel: Medium-full viscosity. Creamy carbonation. Sheets of fine bubbles coat the inside of the glass.

Overall: The best coffee flavor I've had in a beer. At first, I have to admit some apprehension in trying this one, based on it being brewed with civet coffee. Weasel poop or not, the coffee flavor is out of this world! Very highly recommended!
