Here’s another beer from the cellar. Let’s see how it is.

ABV: 10.9%

Style: American Double/Imperial Stout

Trivia: According to the brewery website, “With the last days talk about cruel treatment of Kopi Luwak producing civets it is important for us to say this: We do not use Kopi Luwak from Indonesia in Beer Geek brunch Weasel. We use the Vietnamese variety cà phê Chồn. We have been aware since we started using cà phê Chồn in 2008 that not all civet coffee world wide is produced with the best care and respect of the cats. Therefore we searched for and found one supplier of cà phê Chồn that treats the animals with respect and dignity. We use cà phê Chồn mainly or it’s special flavour (no bitterness) that complients the beer greatly. With that said we might look into using a natural enzyme simulated version in the future.”

Random: Deer love walking on my lawn. Given the fact that the ground is so wet, they keep leaving hoof prints here.

This beer poured with a one finger, tan head that dissipated slowly and left light lacing. A crown was also left on top of the body. The body itself was a dark brown color, almost black, with no visible carbonation. The nose was very deep and had lots of dark espresso. It also had notes of licorice and dark chocolate as well. Coffee liqueur came through too. The taste was intense. It had a lot of deep espresso notes with coffee liqueur. There was also roasted malts, smoke and dark chocolate as well. The alcohol was balanced out. It had a thick body with light carbonation. The finish was lengthy with incredibly strong coffee. This beer was outstanding. Given how this has been aging, I think it benefitted the brew. I would have this again in a second.

Untappd Rating: 4.5/5.0
