Extraordinary coffee and whisky (or cognac) in the nose, same in taste. Perfectly balanced sweetness and bitterness. Although it might not be one of the most original beers I've ever had, it certainly is one of the best.

Jet black and thick as 30 weight. Funky aroma. Extremely complex, coffee forward, chewy and strong. Massive stout with shitty aftertaste. Sipped it for hours.

This is shit! Weasel shit that is... Tastes great, nice and roasty. The fecal matter smell doesn't dissipate in the brewing process (but isn't that the point?) This beer will give you a shit eating grin

Clearly a strong, roasted coffee aroma, but also a strange earthy, radish aroma as well. Not necessarily off-putting, just odd. Some additional fruity notes that are reminiscent of chocolate covered cherries - the kind with liqueur inside. Nice ristretto flavor and dark, bitter chocolate. Solid body with only a slight touch of sweetness on the end. Excited to try the BA version.

L- Black, starts with a decent tan head but fades.

S- Dark chocolate and coffee.

T- Chocolate, bitter coffee, some sweetness on the finish.

F- Good thickness, but not heavy. Bitterness lingers a bit.

O- Solid, though I'm not a huge coffee fan so this isn't my favorite.

Pours oil. No head/lacing.

Mostly roasted coffee, subtle vanilla, dark chocolate.

Roasted coffee with a maple syrup sweetness. Oatmeal.

Bitter dry mouthfeel.

Don't mind the disgusting details, this is delicious.

Pours pitch black and oily with a two finger tan head.

Smell is of coffee, bitter chocolate, nuts, and roasted malts. Also bit of a boozy smell coming through - almost like a cognac?

The taste is really good - honestly did not expect it after the smell, which while it wasn't bad, wasn't amazing either. Thick chocolately and boozy up front with a bitter finish. Undertones of roasted nuts, coffee, and malts. Finishes with a sweet vanilla aftertaste that leaves you anticipating the next sip. Its hard to explain, but the taste is initially a bit choppy, but it finishes really smoothly.

Feel is very lusciously thick with a surprising amount of carbonation considered it poured pretty still. Very smooth and very drinkable.

Overall a very enjoyable and tasty brew. I'm glad I got the chance to try it, but at the going rate for this beer ($9/12 oz in Chicago), I won't be picking it up again.

All the pleasantries of the breakfast stout with an added depth of chocolatey flavor and even creamier full body feel. Very good. Cheers!

Pouring in my snifter, I see a rich viscous obsidian black fluid hugging the glass and producing an evanescent tan head.
As I marvel at it, there it comes, the luring aroma of coffee. Mixed with the layers of roasty dark chocolate with sweet nutty notes in it. Maybe some dark fruit and even vanilla.
I have to clarify that she's not the best smelling coffee stout I have had.
Sipping it, roasty malts and intense coffee. Lots of dark dark chocolate. Coffee delivers in terms of not being bitter or burnt yet intense, which is hallmark of civet coffee. I taste dried prunes and almost a boozy liquor like (rum or sherry truffles) in the backend.
It has a very very smooth slick feel thanks to the oats. And the taste lingers and lingers like a sloth climbing a sequoia.
It is truly heavenly delight and absolutely worth it. I don't think I will buy this in big volumes (too many good and slightly more affordable stouts to try still) but certainly an occasional treat.
Cheers!
