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.

.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!

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.

The second you smell this beer you know you've got something special on your hands. Lots of roasty coffee and chocolate jump out at you. The first sip unveils a slightly sweet coffee, a fine example of Vietnamese coffee, before roasted chocolate malts meld near perfectly with the coffee, bringing on a clean roasted coffee finish that is nice and bitter, but retains a slight bit of sweetness throughout. The mouthfeel is perhaps the best I've encountered in an imperial stout so far. Chewy, almost viscous, and mouth coating with a beautifully creamy finish on your mouth. Silky smooth yet so full in body. My first mikkeller beer, but many many more to come.

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).

I picked this up at Al's of Hampden -shared with carlos and tenderbranson69. Enjoyed from a tulip chilled.

The color is the deepest black, like used motor oil, opaque clarity and thick creamy tan head. The lace sticks well and retention is good with very fine bead. The aroma is unique to me it has all the things you expect and more. There is a sweet odor which I would compare to floral attributes of vanilla and earthy notes of roasted coffee with some slight cocoa elements and caramel from the malt. The malt is mild with a more pronounced coffee odor than most imperial stouts let alone stouts with coffee in general. I love the oatmeal which gives a sweet nutty odor to the roasted elements and slight cocoa aroma. This is a luxurious feeling roasted yet well integrated coffee feel, supple and smooth yet there is a moderate amount of spice and sweetness is not overdone.

The taste is delicious in that it carries a full on coffee and mocha taste without punishing you with coffee acidity or too much hops to clutter up the oatmeal stouts silky flavors. There is a mild roasted and caramel malt sweetness in the background but I love how fresh the coffee gives a very fresh and almost spiced flavor with some stone fruit tinges for good measure. I will say I loved this as much if not more than the original Beer Geek Breakfast which is saying a lot considering it is one of my favorite of this style. I appreciate the subtleties that Mikkeller is able to bring out in this beer, not many come close to the complexity and richness. If I had to describe it I would say a coffee stout is like eating a hershey bar, but Brunch Weasel is like eating the finest chocolate truffles. I recommend this to anyone. The only downside was the import price which you can't really avoid unless they start brewing in the United States.

A - Pitch black body with a milk-chocolate head.

S - Sweet milk, light coffee. Touch of cedar.

T - Beveled edges of milk, booze, porridge, coffee, cream. Cedar hop character plays in and out of the background. Coffee bitters in the finish.

M - Stupidly smooth. The flavors are remarkably well integrated. Creamy body.

D - Wonderfully complex. It's a slow drinking beer but you'll drink it as long as it's around. Hides the 11% ABV incredibly well.

A: Pours an incredibly dark brown, very little light getting through on the edges only. Sits a pitch black in the glass with a dark, creamy mocha head. Huge, sticky lacing and retention.

S: An incredibly, rich, vibrant coffee aroma. Very rich, heavily roasted - some ash - fresh oily coffee beans. Bitter dark chocolate. Some vanilla sweetness that gives a mocha effect and brings out some milk chocolate. Fresh acidity. some raisin. Hands down one of the most amazing coffee aromas.

T: Very full, bitter and rich. Fresh espresso bitterness, oily coffee bean acidity, and bakers chocolate. Some vanilla mocha sweetness come through at the finish. Heavily roasted - can taste some ash. Not as mind blowing as the aroma, but very impressive and incredibly enjoyable.

P: Full, viscous, fitting. Allows the flavor to open up to it's full potential. Lines the inside of the mouth

O: I love coffee beers and this is one of the best out there, I'm sure. Too bad it's difficult to impossible to obtain in the US - thanks Jimmy!

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.

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.

This was a very, very big beer indeed. I was very excited to try this one from the first moment I heard it was coming out. Served at cellar temp and poured into a pint glass, this one was consumed on 03/05/2009.

The pour was damn near perfect. Rich, dark black in color with a huge tan head that came up over the top and settled down slowly and even at its lowest it was still a good half inch above the black gold beneath it. Rich roasted coffee and chocolate dominated the aroma. Very big with lots of sweet hints rolled in to it. This one meant business. Rich, feull bodied feel with a perfect mix up thickness and carbonation. Huge flavor, nice roasted coffee and sweet chocolate notes layered on top of rich bourbon like alcohol. A huge and very delicous beer that I am thrilled to be enjoying..

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.

2010 16.9oz bottle poured into a snifter.

A: pours a thick Jet black with a one finger mocha head made up of fine tightly packed bubbles.

N: Big coffee, surprising for a bottle almost 3 years old. Roasty, Dark Chocolate and burnt or caramelized sugars.

T: This is where this beer really got me. Big coffee and chocolate leads way to a sweet booziness that isn't detracting nor overpowering. Smooth milk chocolate and a minor smokiness rounds out the middlr of the taste and proceeds the slightly dry backend consisting of the flavors of roasted coffee and bitter cocoa nibs.

M: Creamy best describes this for me. Very smooth to the back end that drys and makes you want more.

O: This is an insanely enjoyable stout. The entire experience was something I wish I could have more regularly. If you see a bottle, buy the bottle!

Pours out a pitch black, thick as oil, with super brown dark rich head, that dissipitates into a ring of brown lace around the outskirts of the liquid. This is what an Imperial Stout should look like.

Huge rich coffee, with hints of tobacco, licorice, really dark cocoa chocolate. An aroma of slight alcohol creeps through, but the intense aromas of coffee keep it in line.

Flavour is really rich cocoa chocolate with hints of caramel, that give way to big, fresh, and sweet coffee. A slight bitterness from the coffee comes through, as if it was freshly perculated. The front of the mouth has a hint of cloying alcohol sweetness, but it fades off very quickly.

You can't expect much more from an Imperial Stout. It is huge, roasty, sweet, desserty, delicious. It is only second to Beer Geek Breakfast in my book, but damn, those two are a cut above the rest. So easy to drink aswell.

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.

Bottle Pours a nice black with a good creamy brown head. The head lasts well. Lacing is great. Aroma is great with chocolate, roast, coffee, and a base of oatmeal. Has a light carbonation. A wonderful mouthfeel. The flavor is excellent. A very slight burn from the alcohol but not anywhere near what you might think. The flavors dance on your tongue. Has a full body and a thick texture. The finish is purely awesome with a great lingering aftertaste. Take your time with this and enjoy every last sip. This may truely be beer excellence.

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!

The coffee used in brewing this beer is the most expensive in the world. It really shines through. Flavors unlike anything I've tasted in a stout. Very rich, big roasted coffee & chocolate. Layers upon layers & so smooth. A truly exceptional beer. Highest recommendation.

Poured into a Fremont small snifter. Pours pitch black with a one finger light brown head with great retention and lacing. Aroma of dark toasted malt, drip coffee, hints of chocolate. Flavor is rich, delicious dark toasted malt, chocolate, latte coffee with an interesting light cherry or berrry fruit note. Great creamy body and mouth feel, like a whipped dessert. Wow. The coffee in this is extremely well integrated into the malt and the oatmeal gives it both depth and great body. I did not expect to find such an unusual light fruit note to the coffee, having never tasted the civet cat coffee version. This convinces me to try the coffee too. This is a world class stout that is delicious, distinctive and excellently balanced.

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-Poured a stunning chocolate black with a thick creamy one finger head in my oversized snifter. Had a beer geek bacon early today and although this beer looks similar, it lacks some of the shine that the bacon had.

s-Deliciousness. Vanilla cream coffee with hints of cocoa. Somewhat spicey as well. There is a crisp spicey tingle to the smell that is really interesting, but really nice.

t-Thick and knock you off your socks coffee dominates the flavor. It is a SUPER roasty coffee flavor. The coffee is dark and rich

m-Thick almost sludgy but not in a bad way. Like indulging in a godiva hot chocolate.

d-Unreal beer. The coffee is really something else and would love to try it on it's own. Once getting over the whole weasel thing, I'm glad I checked this out. It is no doubt that this coffee bean is so sought after. A real treat, but not necessarily something to drink a lot of. The alcohol is undetectable in this one.

No bottle date, poured into a teku

A- Pours pitch black with a dark tan creamy and silky head that retains long after the pour, leaving some nice lace behind

S- big fresh coffee notes with bitter-sweet dark chocolate, roasty & slightly smoky malt, also picking up a fruity berry-like aroma

T- dark and bitter chocolate up front tastes like a artisan dark chocolate bar, fresh espresso coffee kicks in mid-palate and meshes perfectly with the dark chocolate. Fresh cream flavor with a hint of oat adds an incredible smoothness, fruity berries add a light sweetness. The finish gives more dark chocolate with a slightly bitter finish

M- medium body and low carbonation lead to an incredibly smooth mouthfeel and a silky and velvety finish. Just a hint of alcohol at the end, incredibly smooth and drinkable

O- I had the calvados version and loved it, so I was looking forward to trying the base beer, this didn't disappoint. The coffee flavor is world class and mixes brilliantly with dark chocolate malt flavors with a perfect mouthfeel. World class
