Japalo (1429) - DENMARK - MAR 5, 2011
Batch 489. Smoked roasted coffee-meat for sure. Black oil in the bottle. Medium light brown head. Surprisingly fresh non malty light bitter taste. I can go with a little less smoke. Truly Homo Erectus with a grill.

Bottle, courtesy Beerlando. This was the US version labeled as Rauch Beer Geek. This one pours a nearly pitch black color and topped by a thick head of mocha colored foam that slowly recedes to a lasting film. Scattered patches of lace cling to the glass. The aroma is really nice and shows a strong base of bittersweet cocoa and roasted espresso. There is a touch of licorice followed by a smooth smoke component that livens things up. The smoke isn’t too heavy or meaty as others are, and blends nicely with the roast and cocoa. The aroma follows with the rich bittersweet cocoa and dark roasted espresso forming the base. The smoke adds a nice earthy quality and a touch of smoothness, while burnt caramel adds just a touch of sweetness to balance all the roast. Nearly full bodied and smooth on the palate with balanced carbonation that leads to a lengthy mocha finish. This is some tasty stuff. This one is decadent with plenty of depth to the flavors. Really nice smoked stout.

csbosox (1229) - Prairie Village, Kansas, USA - FEB 26, 2011
Bottle shared by John and Amy. The aroma is pretty phenolic with smoke, caramel, roast, and dark fruits. Taste is milk chocolate, harsh smoke, dark chocolate and smoldering campfire. The beer is rough throughout and the base beer is not well in integrated with the rauch malt, a difficult beer to drink.

Pours black with chocolate head - head is pretty hearty, bigger than a finger and sticks around for a good while. But I handwash my glasses and make sure there is no soap film. Everything from the Beer Geek Breakfast is present - coffee, chocolate, with a hint that there is smoked malt in here. I was expecting big smoke in this one, but it seems good to balance as a subtlety instead of throwing it in your face. Chocolate, vanilla, little coffee, little smoke, and hops. Again the smoke is just right. While I was hoping for actual bacon in a beer labeled "Beer Geek Bacon" I can’t say I’m disappointed I didn’t find chunks of bacon floating around. Velvety smooth, with a hint of bitterness. The smoke doesn’t stick around like a real rauchbier, and that is a good thing - sometimes. Carbonation thins it out enough and brings the bitterness from the hops to the tongue after you swallow. Very drinkable if you don’t mind sleeping in a little late. The smoke is just subdued enough that you forget it is a smoked beer. But after a bit you remember that it is a decently strong beer. Good for a cold winter night with a big steak - from the grill of course. Or a smoked salmon. Mmmm. Just wish it had actual bacon. Then I could have it for breakfast with some eggs. It’s got everything else you need in there.

Bottle. Pours a deep brown, viscous with a creamy tan head that left some nice lacing. Big smoke in the nose. Some chocolate notes, spice, and smoke in the finish.
