4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
500ml brown bottle. Pours black. Big column of thick brown foam on top. Aroma is predictably smokey/campfire, woody, even slightly meaty. Flavour has huge roasty malts, black coffee, salt, smoke, peat. Finishes with bitter smokey malts, black coffee and dark chocolate. Lingering coffee and smoked malt aftertaste. Silky full body, medium carbonation. Lots of bold, strong flavours but all are integrated well. Great beverage.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
This beer has the aroma I (would!) like to smell in the morning - frying bacon & fresh coffee. The palate is exceptionally smooth with the smoked malts really coming through. I prefer this to the standard Beer Geek Breakfast. As with the original, it is a little too dry for my taste so a little sweetness (sugar in the coffee or maple syrup on the bacon) would have turned this from an amazing one to one of the best I've ever tasted.

Bottle. Pours black, tan head, dissipates quickly. Coffee, hints of maple smoked bacon, traces of cherry, slightly sweet on the nose. Flavor starts out with strong coffee, leads into smoke and chocolate, after about twenty seconds, mouth does start to taste like I’ve had bacon

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle (Rauch Geek) and served in snifter: Pours a very deep brown with a mostly lasting head and good lace. Fair amount of roast, cold pressed coffee and resiny hops with faint smoke oats on the nose. The smoke shows a tad more in the chalky and slightly metallic palate. Thinner mouthfeel but that is expected from a coffee stout. Overall it is really meh... Like regular Beer Geek Breakfast much more. The hop character in this beer is too dominate.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Refrigerated 12 oz. brown bottle poured into a snifter. Coal black with small light brown head. Aroma is coffee, medium body, syrupy texture, medium/light carbonation, and some very small bubble lacing. Taste is some roasty, smoke, ash, and nice coffee finish. More smoke as it warms.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle (330 ml). Dark brown with a small beige head and little lacing. Aroma is of smoke, ashes, roasted malt, light peated presence and hints of salt. Taste is roasty with smoke, ashes, peated notes, light sweetness and a light salty finish. Medium body. Moderate carbonation. Smokey finish. Alcohol is well hidden. Not easy to drink because of a little lack of balance. Tasty. The smoke has no "depth", unlike Schlenkerla’s beers... they aren’t in the same league anyway.

Aroma is mostly bacon and rich malts. Slightly smokey aswell. Taste is a rich maltiness that actually finishes very smooth. Slightly tarty finish. Appearance is black with a thin beige head that retains fairly well.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
As Rauch Geek Breakfast. Inky black with quiet brown head. Aroma is subtle smoke, coffee, chocolate. Smoke is more potent once you take a sip. And that taste is a big one - lots of espresso. Relatively dry for such a big beer, and quite bitter. Bitter finish is perhaps excessive.

330ml bottle from Brewdog online shop.
Thick tan head, good lacing, body is black. Nose is full of well cooked smoky bacon, a little hint of liquorice. Flavour is smoky roasted coffee and chocolate, charcoal, more smoke on the finish. Mouthfeel is rich and creamy, very little carbonation. Great stuff. Did I mention smoke?
