Bottle - Tons of coffee, roast, chocolate and a bit of smoke and peat. Jet black with a huge beige head. Dark roast, chocolate and coffee, but little smoke or peat. Great rich mouth feel. Great beer, just wanted more smoke.

Bottle 330ml at Szynkarnia (Wrocław, Poland). Pours with medium beige head. Color is dark brown/black. Aroma - what a fantastic mixture! I love smokred beers and this one is one of the best I’ve ever tasted! A lot of smoke mixed with coffee and some hops. Wow, that is what i like! The beer is very smooth, and taste is as good as aroma. Lot of coffee, lot of smoked notes, nice hoppy finish. Another excellent beer from Mikkeller.

This reminds me of aecht schlenkerla, but roasted... it’s got a lot of smoke on the nose, but not a lot in the taste, it’s very light, and has a pretty decent and quite overpowering roastiness,

bottle (as rauch geek) thanks to Willy for sharing this. Big dark black pour, nice little bit of mocha head. Aroma, mild sweetness, lots of of smoke, roasted malts. Taste, crisp smokiness up front, followed by some mild sweetness, finishes slight dry with roast. Overall, a nice addition to geek series, solid brew.

La verdad es que no es demasiado ahumada y no tiene para nada aroma y ni sabor a bacon. Buen sabor a grano tostado, amargo, azucar moreno. Fondo seco.
