3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Mikkeller Rauch Geek Breakfast -- Big coffee everywhere, in aroma, in flavor, in mouthfeel. Aroma is smoke and coffee and malt. Appearance is gorgeous, syrupy black-brown. Mouthfeel is smooth and silky with an astringent middle and a mouthful of coffee finish.
Not my favorite Mikkeller product myself, but then, I’m not huge into coffee. It’s a great quality beer, of that there’s no question, but you definitely have to want the coffee to fully enjoy this.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a dark brown with a thin beige head that leaves really low lacing. Nose is of smoke, burnt malt, light ash. Taste is not really sweet, a little acrid and acidic. Bready flavors, burnt toasts more specifically. Not too much ash but still heavily roasted. Body is full, carbonation just low. Overall a letdown, I expected more smoke to reinforce the "bacon" theme.

Svart som natten. Rostade toner, sötman hintar i aromen, viss doft av bacon. Hel del sötma i aromen, kanske lite spretig.

Flaska från mikkeller utanför operan - mörk som natten. Doftat som en rököl och smakat bacon, ingen favorit.

Draft at Mikkeller SF. Nose is a classicly over done smoke beer, in a good way but short of campfire. Dark brown to black with a medium brown head. Taste reminds me of a classic schlenkerla with a ton of smoke. Some bacon and campfire. A bit ashy. Not much coffee tho. Ok

In fact, a little disappointing. Not as delicious as the original. Not very smoky. Ok beer but somewhat dry.

Bottle. Pours pitch black with a beige head which after a couple of minutes reduces to a little layer. Aroma of... it is not a surprise: bacon! Apart from that smokiness, peat malts and coffee. In taste a lot of coffee, dark chocolate and smoke/peated notes. Beer is full bodied, oily texture. Carbonation is rather low and soft. In finish there is long coffee bitterness. Excellent beer.

33cl bottle. Pours black with thick beige head. Smells of peat, smoke, light soy souce, some dark fruit/berries. Taste is coffee, lots of roastiness, some bitter chocolate, light peat, some alcohol. Light final hops. Full bodied, a bit thinner than the other Beer Geeks I’ve had. Long bitter afterstaste with some licorice in the final sip.
