Bottle thanks to Bruce. Pours a very dark brown with beige head that lasts. The aroma is strong smoke, roast, and bacon. Thin mouthfeel with strong smoke, peat, and smoke finish. Good.

A really, really smoky stout. It’s not as intense or overbearing as a Schlenkerla Rauchbier, but there’s definitely a lot of that meaty quality you’d expect in a beer known as "Beer Geek Bacon". An interesting experience.

Had this under the label of Rauch Geek Breakfast, and had it side by side with the regular Beer Geek Breakfast. My friends were all amazed at the aroma--not all of them in a good way. Band-aid, meat, etc. Lots there. But wow, this is still an excellent beer. Bottle.

Schokoladenmalziger Antrunk, dabei wenig süß und leicht hopfig. Die vorhandene Rauchnote intensiviert sich, bleibt aber hinter dem schokoladigen Malz zurück. Rund würzig, süffig. Trocken herb malziger Ausklang. 11/11/12/10/11/11

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Interesting. Pours black with a tan head. Aroma seems odd, smoke chocolate and meat drippings. Taste is smoke and caramel with some hints of bacon like flavors. Dry finish. Medium body light carbonation.

Imperial stout complessa e intrigante, con una forte presenza affumicata che si intreccia con le note intense di caffé e malti tostati. Davvero buonissima!

Bottle rating from notes. Pours a dark brown to black color with a medium sized beige head. The aroma and flavor have roasted malt, coffee, some chocolate with a nice dose of smoke. Somewhat meaty. You had me at bacon.

Bottle pour opaque black with thick brown head. Nose coffee roast and some chocolate with definite smoke. Taste similar to nose, with some early palate sweet and then late pale bitter. Roasty bitter finish. Great mix of flavor.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Very dark brown color, almost black with tan head. It’s clear even if it’s not so transparent.
At the nose there is a lot of coffee and chocolate, but also some molasses, an hint of bacon and a little of brackish. It’s very particular.
Full bodied, very smooth in the beginning but with a good bitterness that brings balance to the beer. Long lasting taste. Very good beer.
