This is similar to the original Beer Geek Breakfast. However this version is fermented entirely in oak tanks. The oak imparts a different flavour profile than the original. Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, many say, and if you are a beer geek there is no better way to start the day than with a powerful, complex morning stout. The unique mix of oats and coffee gives this beer large body and power, while the coffee, at the same time, creates a nice balance.

phaleslu (7536) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 24, 2015
750 ml bottle from Dutch’s. Pours a deep opaque brown with a big frothy tan head that settles rocky and craters, with some big bubbles, eventually settling into an uneven film with some lace ropes. Notes of roasted malts, coffee, chocolate, tobacco, cola, dark fruits, earth, and a hint of dusty funk. Medium-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a roasty, earthy mouthfeel that lingers. Nice stout.

furthur (426) - Eagle River, Alaska, USA - MAY 20, 2015
Finally getting around to this, after freezing and breaking my first one on accident, and then finding another unexpectedly much after I thought they were gone. Bottle, black beer, little walnut colored head dissapeared. Aroma is coffee,some metal, wet dog, molasses. Taste is black coffee, metal, burnt sugar, black currant, and coffee bitter finish. Palate is a tad bit thin, but not bad, carbonation nicely subdued. This almost has a sour funkiness, I don’t know if that’s oxidized coffee or the oak or a slight infection? The coffee is still there, and I think this is a few years old now. I would have rated this higher, but that’s where the numbers landed.

Bottle shared with daje, edvard and Simonsen at The "Esp0r #2000 Weekend in The Woods" 2014
Opens with an explosive gusher deluxe. Daje jumped 2 meters backwards. Pours dark brown, black in glass, tanned head with big ugly bobbles. Smell of oats, coffee, some vegetables, and earthy hops. Moderate sweet, coffee, soil, earth, quite different from the original version. Moderate bitter finish

gunnar (6408) - Sandnes, NORWAY - MAY 11, 2015
Shared bottle at "Exploding bottle tasting" at Petros place Chania. This was the bottle which exploded, or rather the wire cage was removed and the bottle placed on the table for warming upa bit, when it suddenly shoot the cork to the roof, and a fountain of stout appeared in my blurred vision, saved the bottle, and the beer was more than ordinary good. Poured almost pitch black with a small tanned head. Aroma of coffee, dark chocolate and maybe some weak brett character. Taste is the same with resiny hops, dark chocolate, smooth mouthfeel, loaded with coffee, very good one.

Ed5388 (2538) - Forked River, New Jersey, USA - APR 15, 2015
750ml c&c bottle shared by Pizz5116 after work. Pours black with finger of foamy tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, nail polish, plastic, cocoa powder, and caramel. Taste is better then the aroma, but doesn’t compare to any of the variants of beer geek breakfast that I’ve had. Lots of burnt malts, dark chocolate, a hint of vanilla, and bitter earthy hops.

teorn88 (3599) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 5, 2015
75cl corked and caged bottle from Grand Cru, Rimini. It pours a dark brown color with a large mocha head. Aroma is roasted maltes, espresso, vanilla, cocoa and ripe apricots, very minor funk. Taste is mostly roasty with notes of cocoa powder, burnt wood, licorice, some fruity esters ad light funk. Medium to full bodied with good carbonation. Overall, nice stout but was expecting a lot more funk out of this.
