Beer Geek Brunch (Weasel) is so named because one of the ingredients is Vietnamese Ca Phen Chon coffee that is made from the droppings of weasel-like civet cats. The animals eat the red coffee cherries, but the coffee bean itself remains undigested. The coffee is prized because a unique combination of stomach enzymes breaks down the proteins that give coffee its bitterness.

Espresso black that crowds the edges of the glass so completely that no highlights are seen. The dark caramel colored head filled the vast majority of the glass on the pour... and is still thicker than the beer several minutes later. Calling the appearance incredible would not be out of line.

Even though I'm not a coffee drinker, coffee-added stouts are some of the best smelling beers that I've experienced (and that includes the hoppy ones). This big brew is bursting with bittersweet chocolate and black coffee in surprisingly equal measure. Expectations are high...

... and expectations have definitely been met, and possibly even exceeded. Beer Geek Brunch (Weasel) is at least as good as Beer Geek Breakfast, and that's saying something. This ale's considerably higher ABV was a stroke of genius because it cranks flavor intensity up to epic proportions.

Again, it's odd that coffee doesn't run roughshod over the other members of the flavor profile. Actually, I prefer it this way since the beer tastes like a coffee-accented Imperial stout rather than a stout-accented glass of cold coffee. Too bad this isn't a bomber.

The second pour gave me no choice but to award the ultimate appearance score. A huge and majestic crown of some of the darkest foam ever seen has just been recreated. Given its incredible persistence, there's no place for lace to stick.

Flavors include dark chocolate, sugar-crusted coffee beans, blackstrap molasses, vanilla bean and an incredible amount of black licorice/anise. Civet shit isn't appreciated. There's even an undercurrent of citrus zesty American hops, which makes sense when Mikkeller is the brewery in question. I'm a huge fan of these guys. Huge!

Body/mouthfeel is the only place where this world-class ale loses a little steam. It's silky smooth, but lacks the required heft and chewiness for the style and the ABV. It isn't a negative per se, more like less of a positive than the other attributes.

Mikkeller Beek Geek Brunch (Weasel) is one of the finest coffee-added big stouts in the world. It took until the bottom third of the bottle, but I've finally come to the realization that this is the best beer of 2010 so far. Bottom line: a stunning achievement from one of the world's best craft breweries. (2,643 characters)

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. (903 characters)

Picked this up at a wine store in northeastern Louisiana. I just checked the BA score and grabbed it without looking at what it actually was. It was more expensive than I expected, so I looked at why and saw it was from the civet coffee.

Even for imperial stouts, this is a dark beer. Black as night. Not much in the smell. The taste is amazing. Well-balanced with not an excessive amount of coffee, but what you can taste is very complex with a lot of sweetness and bitterness coming from the coffee. I get a little hint of alcohol, especially as the beer warms. Very rich flavor with a lot going on. Definitely one of the biggest beers I have tried.

Where I was it was $15 for 500mL, but it is a very memorable beer for the taste of the beer itself and the fact of what it is made from. Definitely worth trying at least once and maybe on a few other special occasions if you can get your hands on it, but not something I am willing to regularly shell out this much money for plus I can get a stout that is almost good for much less. (1,037 characters)

pours dark dark brown almost pitch black with a big 2+ finger tan head that left lacing down the glass

smell is big chocolate and roasted malts - the coffee is there but it takes a back seat to the cocoa and roasted malts

taste is near perfect - the coffee is more present here then in the nose and blends great with roasted malts and chocolate

mouthfeel - this is how every impy sout should feel - thick heavy silky smooth

drinkability is great - too bad i only had the one bottle (485 characters)

Three Mikkeller Beer Geek Brunch Beers lined up. Weasel, Weasel Bourbon and Weasel Highland edition.

This is the Weasel.
Batch 470
Brewed de 1st 2009
From a 500ml bottle into a snifter.

Comes out thick, looks pitch black one finger tan foam. Head fades rather quickly.

Big bold nose. Tons of coffee, chocolate and roasted malts.

Full coffee flavored stout mixed with chocolate flavors. Lots of bitterness on the finish.

Thick creamy mouthfeel, full body and nice amount of carbonation.

This is a great coffee stout. Almost like drinking a iced coffee. Loving it and would pick it up again if I saw it in the store. HIGHLY RECOMENDED! (639 characters)

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. (959 characters)

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! (1,774 characters)

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. (298 characters)

1pt .9oz bottle poured into a snifter.

The pour is gorgeous with a huge fluffy tan head on top of a pitch black body. The head lingers as a big cap for the duration and leaves tons of lacing.

The aroma is massive with dominant smells of dark sweet malts and roasted coffee. Neither dominates the other and make for an extremely well balanced nose.

I have to admit to being slightly biased as I love coffee infused beers, but, damn, the taste is extraordinary. It's got the roasted coffee playing a prominent role but there is none of the bitterness that often goes along with it. The sweet dark malts form a great backbone with some chocolate and licorice. Hints of smoke linger in the finish along with a perfect coffee aftertaste.

The mouthfeel is nothing short of perfection. Good carbonation combined with a heavier body produces the ideal velvety finish that you strive for.

Well, this just blew me away. The look and aroma were pretty darn good, but after the first sip, I was hooked. This is a truly exceptional beer - a perfectly balanced coffee stout. Go get this now. (1,082 characters)

Pours out thick and black with a small, light mocha colored head.
Dark coffee aroma, big malt presence, some wood notes, vanilla and dark fruit.
The taste is sweet and dark malt, with rich coffee flavors throughout and a bitter finish. Notes of dark, semi-sweet chocolate, espresso and vanilla and wood are all there supporting the flavors.
This is a full-bodied beer, rich with light carbonation, which lends to it not being too heavy to drink. Sticky on the palate and not too oily of a mouthfeel.
Maybe it's the fact that I know its made with these special coffee beans, but I really liked this beer. I love the coffee element in stouts and this is my new favorite. It's a bit expensive at around $13 for a bottle, but absolutely worth it if you want to splurge, like coffee beers, or just want to be able to say you drank weasel poop. All good reasons in my mind. (867 characters)

A- Really thick and viscous on the pour. A dark brown head slowly rises and leaves some lacing as it fades. This is one really dark, thick, heavy looking beer.

S- Kinda boozy and hot smelling. Coffee is obvious, as expected. There are some oats and rasiny dark fruits also. This is one really good smelling beer. Smells like the best of the best among breakfast stouts.

T- Waaayy good! Chocolate, vanilla, coffee. Its like a cup of the best coffee with french vanilla creme. There is a distinct shot of alcohol. This is a pretty warming beer.

M- SOOO creamy! Huge full body, one of the most viscous stouts I've had. Barely any carbonation helps to make this a very smooth beer.

D- Full bodied, heavy and warm. This beer is very delicious. (743 characters)

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 (710 characters)

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. (945 characters)

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. (845 characters)

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. (1,033 characters)

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 (539 characters)

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. (1,430 characters)

It just so happens that I am a HUGE fan of weasel poop. I have plush weasel poop dolls, weasel poop posters, weasel poop t-shirts. When I hear about the weasel poop beer, I had to have it!!!

this brew pours up black as poop with a huge poop brown head. great lacing too. the nose is a bit too boozy, dry chocolate, dirt, mildly bitter coffee beans. the taste is huge! huge malts, huge coffee, huge chocolate, huge bitterness, very smooth, huge body. I dig the poop outta this beer!

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. (1,032 characters)

Poured from 12 oz bottle into large tulips and shared.

The color of thick black coffee with minimal brown head.

Aroma is of caramel-sweetened strong ice coffee.

This beer tastes amazing. Super smooth with complex layers of roasted malts and coffee and just slight hints of fruit.

Mouthfeel is smooth and luscious. Very low carbonation but perfect for the style.

Overall, this is a masterfully created work of art. It's right up there with KBS and BCBS. The price is somewhat ridiculous at $10/12 oz, so I doubt that I will buy more, but I'm glad to have tried this one bottle. (593 characters)

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. (484 characters)

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. (1,139 characters)

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. (527 characters)

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. (927 characters)

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... (1,003 characters)
