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!

I had the "Weasel" for awhile and finally opened it tonight.Poured into a imperial nonic a jet black with not a trace of light showing thru,a mocha colored pillowey two finger head atop.an awesome mix of deep coffee roast and bitter chocolate in the nose,a hint of vanilla and roasted nut as well,just a great mix.Rich flavors and obviously highly roasted,bittersweet chocolate and French roast coffee dominate with a tinge of dar fruit and vanilla,a slightly earthy earthy finish rounds the beer out very well.Everything I thought it would be,just a great double stout from a killer brewery.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4

A: Thick, jet black liquid. One fingered brownish airy head that dissipates quickly. Basically no lacings.

S: Strong coffee aromas mostly resembling hard-roasted coffee beans, but also powerful espresso. Plenty of dark chocolate. Roasted, almost burnt malts. Some charred wood and tannins. A very dense and powerful smell.

T: The taste is full of rich espresso flavors. A wonderful taste of freshly brewed coffee and freshly grounded coffee beans. Notes of dark chocolate tries to balance the powerful coffee flavors, but don't really succeed. A faint but prominent taste of vanilla. Hard-roasted malts mix with wood and coal. Perhaps some fruity notes, but they are very faint. The finish is quite bitter actually with hints of tannins, hop aromas, some vanilla sugar and lingering coffee notes.

M: Very full bodied and very viscous - like old engine oil. Very restrained carbonation. Feels fantastic in the mouth.

D: A great coffee stout. Not very balanced though, as the powerful coffee flavors dominate. Still fairly complex. Highly recommended.

A- Inky black with a frothy medium-brown head.

S- Rich burnt coffee beans, light vanilla and chocolate,ash, and a whiff of alcohol and hops.

T- Amazing coffee flavors, smoke, chocolate and cookie, noticable hoppy finish adding depth.

M- Full bodied with soft, creamy carbonation with a slightly astringent feel in the finish.

D- This(with a few others) takes coffee(beer) to new levels. More integrated than geek breakfast.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

A: A thin head but a thick beer, completely black pour.

S: A very strong coffee aroma laced with oatmeal, a very thick smell that completely fills the nostrils.

T: A solid imperial stout, very front heavy with the coffee with an oatmeal and chocolate afterthought.

MF/D: Thick feel, smooth on the palate, would try again, though certainly not my favorite imperial stout. perfect for sharing (thanks hu5om) from the pint bottle.

Deep dark black pour with a 1/2" of creamy tan head that quickly falls. Spotty lacing. Aromas of robust dark malts along with some smokiness. Oatmeal is there along with big coffee and some chocolate as well. The aroma is somewhat earthy.

First sip brings sweet rich dark malts upfront with oatmeal smoothness in tow. Acrid coffee moves in with earthy undertones. Chocolate flavors are present. Flows down with a kick of alcohol heat and lingering roasted coffee flavors. Somewhat smoky as well. Never thought I'd be drinking a coffee beer made from civet cat droppings, but it's pretty darn tasty!

Mouthfeel is smooth and creamy with mellow carbonation. Oats add nice body and makes it go down smooth. It does have a bit of an ABV kick to it. Glad I got to try it, but it's a little bit too expensive for a repeat purchase.

A - Pours a thick, opaque black with a finger of brown head that dissipates rather quickly, leaving a trail of lacing behind.

S - Up front smell is intense deep coffee, accompanied by roasted malts, CHOCOLATE, and slight aromas of fruit.

T - Like the aroma, coffee completely dominates, which, as a coffee lover, I support. Wonderful flavor; some roasted, almost burnt malts, then comes some chocolate notes.

M - nice medium/heavy mouthfeel. This completely coats the palate in a wonderful way.

D - Some apparent abv drops drinkability a little, but this is fantastic for someone who loves both beer and coffee.
