4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
500mL - Rauch Geek Breakfast - bottle. Pour is jet black with a smallish tan head that falls away rather quickly leaving a thick ring of lace around the rim of the glass. Aroma is smoky, malty, dark roasted coffee and chocolate with a touch of caramel. Flavor up front is vanilla, caramel, chocolate followed by smoked bacon, peated malt and dark coffee in the finish. Over all an incredible, complex stout, creamy, smoky, what a treat and for my $$ right on the money.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Pours a jet black beer with a small ring of tanned head on top. Aroma is rather smokey, syrupy and bacon, some molasses in there as well. Flavor is odd, a bit sweet and a bit salty even. Must be the bacon. Maybe even bittersweet, not sure though. Rather thick, full bodied malty experience with roasty characters. Aftertaste is long and sweet with overtones of smoke. A bit weird, but very nice!!
