Mikkeller Beer Geek Brunch Weasel

Name:  Beer Geek Brunch Weasel

Style:  Imperial Stout

Brewery: Mikkeller website   This was Brewed at Nøgne Ø, Grimstad, Norway.

Country:  Denmark

Region: København

ABV: 10.9% Abv

How served: 500ml capped bottle poured into a La Chouffe glass.       

My Overall Opinion: Amazing

I paired this beer with: Nothing, had it as an after dinner drink, but would have been perfect for brunch too!

Tasted on:  Saturday June 12th, 2010. 

Note:   So I’m going to be tasting a beer made with weasel poop.  Well not really the poop, but the coffee beans which were pooped out.  Just hoping that the beans were cleaned 1st.   The beer pours very thick and dark (maybe the beans weren’t cleaned 1st) leaving a thin dark tan head. The nose was all espresso and dark chocolate.  The taste was of dark roasted coffee and dark chocolate and only a hint of the 10.9% abv.  The mouth feel was thick, smooth and rich. 

On the Label:  This imperial Oatmeal stout is brewed with one of the world’s most expensive coffees, made from droppings of weasel-like civet cats.  The fussy Southeast Asian animals only eat the best and ripest coffee berries.  Enzymes in their digestive system help to break down the bean.  Workers collect the bean-containing droppings for Civet or Weasel Coffee.  The exceedingly rare Civet Coffee has a strong taste and an even stronger aroma.   Brewed & Bottled By Mikkeller at Nøgne Ø, Grimstad, Norway.
