No clue how old this is, but it was a bit dusty. 500 ml bottle into an over sized wine glass.

A - Pitch black body lets zero light through. 2 finger high mocha head forms and settles to a nice bubbly cap. Great lacing and retention and some alcohol legs produced after swirling.

S - I've never had civet coffee before so I'm a bit inexperienced in its nuances, but the coffee aroma here is roasty but not bitter. It's hard to explain. Very sweet yet roasty coffee and malts which works great against the deep vanilla and dark chocolate notes. Really unique and fantastic.

T - Just as extraordinary as the nose. Sweet vanilla and dark chocolate followed by lightly roasty yet sweetened coffee notes. There is some slightly vinous and fruity red wine notes towards the finish as well. Syrupy and coating, with low carbonation.

O - I'm not a Mikkeller fan at all. After trying three of the B/A black hole beers I gave up on buying there stuff. This bottle was given to me so I went into it rather unbiased of its price tag. But holy crap has my image of them changed. This is a phenomenal stout. I think I prefer BCBCS a bit more in terms of coffee stouts, but this is a huge achievement, I though it was going to beer an average gimmicky beer using one of the most expensive coffee beans, buts its just so damn delicious. Kudos Mikkeller!

Pours a rolling, incredibly thick dark brown head, with fantastic retention, huge body and fluffiness, and thick, nice lacing that clings to the glass. Multiple pours to get it all into one glass. Brew is super dark brown if not black, like a dark nut or wood, and completely opaque.

First impression of the aroma is a grape-tinged booziness, but that gives way to a creamy, smooth, chocolate-and-roast-coffee themed barley brew.

Flavor follows the nose, yet is entirely surprising! A tiny, tiny bit of fruity tartness hits the tongue first, followed by thick barley notes, a huge wave of smooth chocolate, and then a finish of black roasted coffee and berries. That's off of a single sip; unbelievable combination of flavors. Other notes: cream, dark cacao, and again with fruity berries. The coffee notes are firmly in the background, and adding bitterness at the end (as roasted barley).

Nice thick and creamy feel; chewy. Nice sting if you chew on it for a while, which also gives the impression that you're munching on a bar of super dark chocolate. A little earthy bitterness lingers as an aftertaste; not entirely pleasant, but not exactly bad, either.

Wow, this is one impressive beer. A very interesting showcase of flavors, mostly the same ones you'd expect in any coffee stout, but in different proportions, and highlighted in different ways. Great mouthfeel. Brunch Weasel or not, this could easily be a dessert by itself.

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!!

I poured this beer and it has a black as night body with a small tan head. The aroma has a roasted malt and chocolate aroma. The taste is awesome it has roasted malt chocolate flavor with some coffee notes. The mouthfeel is smooth and overall a amazing beer.
