Botella. De olfato ligero lo que más destaca es el roasted. Sabor muy bien integrados el ahumado con el café, lo que la convierte en una cerveza de trago fácil y muy bebescible. El alcohol apenas se nota

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12oz bottle, from Party Source. Pours a black color, with a nice thin darker brown head. Leaves good ridges of lace. Medium to bigger body, with a good chewiness. Crisp, light carbonation. Lightly dry finish. Nice smoke in the nose, with roast malt, coffee, and dark chocolate. Good smokey flavor, but it doesn’t make me think ’bacon’ - probably a good thing. Smoke competes with a lot of big coffee in the flavor, which I really enjoy. Big bitter taste, little sweetness. A very sharp, bitter coffee stout. Smoke is not too over the top, well-balanced with the other components of beer geek. A real treat, that I’ve wanted to try for a while. Exceeded expectations.

Bottle. Black with a thin tan head. No lacing. Aroma is lots of smoke with chocolate and a hint of coffee. Taste is still very smoky up front but showcases the coffee more. Light chocolate notes and hop bitternessin the finish. Palate is surprisingly thin with a lot of carbonation. Could go for it being a bit thicker. Intense.

Rauch geek breakfast. Again bottle thanks to Nick! Black thick pour with a small dark brown head. Smell is coffee, roasted malts, smoke, and bitter chocolate. Taste is again heavy coffee... Although this time the smoke cuts the intensity of the coffee. Roast, char, cocoa, and bacon. Less bitter than its counterpart. Nice thick mouth feel, good carbonation.
