3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
500ml bottle from Discount labelled "Rauch Geek Breakfast" on Thanksgiving morning shared with ck1. Pours brown/black with an off-brown head. Nice lacing. Aroma has big meat smoke, with underlying caramel malt and chocolate. Taste is much smoother than the aroma would indicate. Smoke, milk chocolate, bits of bacon, some roasty-ness. Finishes sweet and smoky. Nice, tasty, a bit too smoky.

Black beer with a small beige head. Aroma is sweet smokey, dark malts, coffee. Taste is quite same as the aroma, really dark and smokey. Some fruity hints and hops too. Quite thick and oily mouthfeel, finishes smooth and medium bitter. More hops please, not my favorite now.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Scent of coal, ash and smoked meat. The taste is heavenly good. The taste of chocolate, coffee, soy sauce, smoked meat, ash and coal. The beer is a little cute too so it is nevertheless easy to drink and not get too heavy. Quite so heavy bitterness in the aftertaste that fills the mouth forever. Wonderful beer that you can enjoy for a long time. Follow me @ Kung av öl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.

Bottle from a Chicago trip. Pours a black great color with a dark chocolate milk colored head. Thick head that never fully settles. A big smokey aroma with hints of chocolate and bacon. A nice chocolate touch upfront. A nutty vanilla flavor as the smoke takes over towards the end. Feels a bit thin but overall nice.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
330 ml botle from AmmersinO, Vienna.
Black, oily liquid, with a medium, dense, creamy, tan head.
Aroma of bacon, dry coffee, smoked wood, dark chocolate, liquorice.
Taste follows this, but with the bacon not as dominant.
Full, oily mouthfeel, with an average carbonation.
Finishes strong roasty-bitter, dry, smokey, wooden.
Tasty! A pretty challenging, strong, dry, roasty Stout, with the smokey bacon notes well integrated. The taste doesn’t fully keep up with the nose in my opinion, but still excellent stuff! I prefer the standard Beer Geek Breakfast much more though.

Bottle @ Mikkeller Bar, SF.
Pours thick brown black, zero head. Mocha nose, not very smokey. Big espresso flavour, subtle Rauch, dry finish. Full & rich, but where's the bacon?
