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.

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?

Drunk 09/08/14 with cam on his new balcony after a days slog in the flat. we were both pumped up and sweaty, but thankfully had this beer to share and cut through the turbulent undercurrent of raw sexual energy between us. it pours a lacy black, with a thick frothy tan head. it smells great- really big smoked bacon aroma, with coffee, dark chocolate. the taste is roasty malts, burnt sugar, bit of coffee and choco bitterness. its dry with low fizz but its got a milky creamy thickness to it as well. so tastyyyyy. beers like this are turning me onto stouts more and more

Bottle on the balcony shared with Tino after a long days graft. Pours black with a stunning brown crema that leave a luxurious lacing and doesn’t break down. Aroma of coffee and bacony Bamberg. Flavour is robust with an even hand shown to the smoke and the coffee. Lovely thickness to it as well. D-Lish.

Estupenda cerveza q confirma una vez mas q Mikkeller es una de las mejores cerveceras del momento. Saben hacer mucho y bien. El toque tostado/bacon/ ahumado suave pero q acompaña bien para hacer en conjunto una cerveza bastante redonda. Para repetir y disfrutar con calma

Lukaduke (2120) - Portland, Maine, USA - AUG 7, 2014
Pours a deep burnt umber with a finger or two if thick khaki foam. Nose has definite old campfire smoke, cocoa dust, coffee, bakers chocolate. Palate is a bit more abrasive than expected... big charcoal, burnt coffee, woodsmoke , bittersweet chocolate peaks through in the mid to late palate and then the heavy roast, burnt toast notes roll in. Rauch aspect really knocks down the sweetness level and dries out the finish.

Bottle. Black pour, small head, fades to a mess ring. Aroma is very roasty with light peat smoke, light bacon, chocolate, and charred wood. Tastes very smooth and more balanced than I expected. Nice mix of peat smoke, wood smoke, coffee, and oatmeal. The smoke is not overdone which I like. Medium to thick body. Great one to drink at a backyard bonfire.

Deep dark brown with a tan head. Smoky sons with some dark fruit, coffee. Taste is heavily smoked but it’s nicely balanced and not too much. Creamy and smooth, good stuff

Mikkeller Rauch Geek Breakfast -- Big coffee everywhere, in aroma, in flavor, in mouthfeel. Aroma is smoke and coffee and malt. Appearance is gorgeous, syrupy black-brown. Mouthfeel is smooth and silky with an astringent middle and a mouthful of coffee finish. Not my favorite Mikkeller product myself, but then, I’m not huge into coffee. It’s a great quality beer, of that there’s no question, but you definitely have to want the coffee to fully enjoy this.
