A. Dark, dense chocolate color. minimal head, mouth is already watering!
s. First off, I LOVE coffe. This beer reeks of decadent coffee with a tinge of chocolate(60/40 maybe)
T. If it where bread it would be a cookie! Relatively sweet, with just enough cloying balancing the 11% alcohol. Flat out fantastic!
M. Everything you would expect out of coffee oatmeal stout. For me a benchmark brew!
D. Dangerously tasty, nothing of a session brew but definetly desirable. One bottle is quite satisfying and a big enough beer to share.

One of my personnel favorites. I love this brew!!
Thank You Mikkeller.

What's THIS!? Civet poo provides us with a piquant porridge?

*Ahem* Sorry.

Managed to snag a few bottles of this after trying it for the first time at the Surly Goat (again!), compliments of Ryan (also again!).

Pours a smooth, tarry black with a dense brown head that quickly dissipates into a thin, whispy spiral on the top.

NOSE is thick with finely chopped, roasted espresso and rich dark chocolate. Earthy overtones of wet leather, toffee and cherry pits.

The TASTE and MOUTHFEEL work in tandem as far as sensations go: with an immediate, biting bitterness of espresso followed by undertones of toffee and burnt wood and the tang of minerals in wet soil.

FINISH reminds you that this is 11%. The 'cool' flavors of the wood and soil quickly make room for a touch of heat and astringency flanked by more burned oak and over-ripe cherries.

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!!!

Pour is onyx with virtually no light penetrating the beer. The head developed about one finger thick and was a tan brown color. Head retention is short as it quickly fades back into the beer. Trace amounts of lacing occurred. The aroma from this brew is absolutely mouth-watering for anyone who likes coffee (or chocolate or beer for that matter). The immediate and dominant smell is of potent coffee but the beautiful thing is that despite the potency a myriad of other aromas still break through. It took me near 20 sniffs to identify what individual notes I could but I believe I smell dark roasted malts, dark chocolate, molasses, dark fruits, licorice, and a light hoppiness. Tasting the beer reveals an immensely complicated grouping of flavors. Coffee, dark chocolate, and dark malts are at the forefront. These three stick out and dominate the first touch of the beer to the tongue. It is very well-balanced. The initial tastes yield to more subdued notes of dark fruits, nuts, and oats. The finish is a touch acidic and the coffee aftertaste lingers long after the swallow. The quality of the world-class coffee used is evident. This beer has the most impressive mouthfeel I have yet experienced. It is very smooth and almost creamy. It can only be described as thick as it feels as if your mouth is both filled and coated with beer simultaneously. The carbonation is very fine. The mouthfeel compliments the tasting but allows the tasting to shine - as it should. The alcohol content of 10.9% is amazingly well hidden; however, I could feel its presence after having had to consume this beauty in a fairly short time. This isn’t a session beer but goes down easy enough. This is the best beer I have tried to date. I feel privileged to have been able to even have a bottle. I am afraid this is a must-buy whenever I see it. The journey of flavors this beer took me on left me sitting on my couch with my empty glass in hand feeling content, relaxed, and sporting a goofy smile. If that isn’t a summary of what a brewer should be aiming for, I don’t know what is.

Drank from a 1 pt .9 fl oz bottle
Served in a snifter

Acquired in a trade with kkipple

The beer poured an opaque, thick, near black with brown edges. No head was present but merely a thin layer of coffee-colored froth that quickly faded to a lasting collar. Spotty drops of lacing trickled down the glass.

The aroma was simply amazing. Super coffee rich (espresso-like) with sweet vanilla and brown sugar notes. Semi-sweet chocolate was apparent as well. As the beer warmed, some bourbony/boozy notes came out as well.

The taste was exceptionally rich and smooth. Coffee/espresso notes dominated the flavor profile, as was expected. The coffee was smooth and yet somewhat acidic. Up front the beer was sweet and creamy with subtle hints of caramel. Dark chocolate, vanilla and roast appeared appeared in the center, along with some bourbon and brown sugar. Strong espresso and roast notes, dark chocolate, oak and a touch of bourbon came through on the slightly warming finish.

The mouthfeel was possibly the single best I have ever experienced in a beer. Ultra creamy, frothy and supple on the palate. Velvety smooth and slick. Even though the oatmeal was overwhelmed by the intensity of the coffee in the flavor profile, it did wonders for the texture. Simply astounding.

This beer was remarkably drinkable. Not only was the flavor profile smooth and well balanced, but the 10.9% ABV was remarkably well hidden.

My friend recently brought me back some civet coffee on his trip to Vietnam. Even though the coffee was far from outstanding, I became obsessed with finding this beer ever since. The steep coast and the legwork involved was definitely worth it. Beer Geek Brunch Weasel definitely has one of the most intense coffee flavors I have ever experienced in a beer. Coupled with the other amazing attributes of this brew, it takes the cake for the best overall coffee flavored beer I have yet to try.
