This imperial, coffee, oatmeal stout pours a deep brown with little head. The aroma is sweet with coffee, caramel and chocolate. The flavor is sweet with espresso, dark chocolate and toffee. It has a density and smooth mouth feel that makes for a very pleasurable sip. A+ in my book but don’t just take my work for it check out what they have to say a Beer Advocate.
From the breweries site:
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.
Water, malts, hops, yeast and Vietnamese ca phe chon coffee.
