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.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
"i wanted to love this one, but it ended up being a little much (to be considered great anyway). No way could I have drank/enjoyed the bottle myself. Big and heavier than the BG Breakfast base. No alcohol apparent but thick roasted chocolate, coffee, lots of smoke and a hint of bacon. Didn’t dislike anything, but together it fell short of elite like BGBreakfast or Brunch."

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, 330ml. A dark beer with a medium size foamy brown head. It has a smoked aroma of bacon. Bacon! Taste is bitter and has a heavy smoked character. There is some faint carbonation and considerable astringency. Aftertaste reminds me a lot of bacon, of course, as well as roasted malt. I have tasted another bacon beer, the Aecht Schlenkerla Rauchbier Märzen, but I think this is better.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at P St PP. Pours a dark oily black with light barely passing on the edge. A one finger beige head gradually settles down to an swirled wisp and moderate lacing. Aroma is smoked malt, bitter chocolate with coffee notes. Flavor is smoked malt with baker’s chocolate and a creamy mouthfeel. Moderate carbonation, mildly bitter finish.

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.
