2009 bottle tasted in summer 2009.

Pours jet black and side by side with Beer Geek Breakfast. What a different beer!

Aroma was thick dark roasted espresso with some vanilla and chocolate.

Flavor was beautiful bitter smooth coffee.

Mouthfeel is where the biggest difference in the beers comes. The weasel is medium bodied with decent carb, but feels so slick on the tongue and goes down so easily.

Overall, this is one of the best coffee beers in the world and, when compared to beer geek breakfast, demonstrates the difference of using quality coffee in brewing.

So I have to be honest. I think that it's kind of cool that something I've drank came out of a weasel-cat butthole. Ewww, but f-ing awesome.

Poured into a snifter from a bottle. Dark brown/black with a very thick, tan head. No lace.

The smell is pretty goddang wonderful. Very oat and coffee
, with some chocolate and booze. Vanilla in the finish. Very rich smell.

Being that I love coffee stouts, mmm. G
The coffee flavor is Turkish coffee rich, super smooth oatmeal, slight chocolate, earthy hops, slight touch of pine, alcohol spice (also slight), with a cocoa finish. Velvet in the throat.

Damn good. More please.

bomber served in a snifter glass.

pours a thick, motor-oil black with a solid mocha-toned finger of creamy head; lasting retention and beautiful walls of lacing. pretty much the archetype of an imperial stout, presentation-wise. very impressive.

nice, flavorful nose. strong notes of roasted malts, molasses, coffee, and some bitter chocolate. not the best i've ever smelled, but very good. wow, taste takes a disappointing step back. flavorful, mostly following the aroma, but much too bitter for my liking. improves some as it warms but never achieves top-notch status.

rich, creamy, full-bodied mouthfeel mouthfeel with medium-low carbonation. lot of hype with this one but i'm not overly impressed. real roller-coaster of a beer for me; ultimately, i just feel there are better imperial stouts out there, and many that are less costly. maybe the civet shit coffee is lost on me.
