3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Lets go to the Jockey Box
Mikey’s Bread Gunk BreAKfast (Alsatian Edition), shared by friend, not in living room, for make the taste!
Pours black with and espresso swirl head that leaves spotty lacing on the glass.
The aroma is lots of coffee, it’s lightly sweet, sort of woody and roasty. Aromatic and (neatly) not funky at all (as I had expected)
The flavor actually has a bit of hop character to it and lots of roasty coffee notes. The beer has a good bitterness all around, the oak character is mild as is the sweetness.
Never been a huge cheerleader for the original Beer Geek Breakfast, but I enjoyed this at least as much as the original, cool.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Fruity aroma with mainly apricot, there is some roastiness and liquorice in the background. Aroma is nice but in a stout I’d like the roastiness to dominate not linger in the background, Colour is nice but the head doesn’t look good, the head is very frothy with large cavities. Silky smooth taste with some sweetness and heavy finish with lots of bitterness, The coffe is very apparant in the finish with significant amount of liquorice. All in all a good stout with the finish as most outstanding quality, head could be better and the aroma should be roastier

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Huge roast quality going on here... bottle pops with a alarming cork dance but no gushing foam. Pour is highly carbonated with a finger of liquid to five fingers of foam even when gentle with it. Roast roast roast... dark bakers cocoa, smooth coffee and silky oat mouthfeel. A bit high on the carbonation side but still nicely nuanced from front to back.

Helt ok men lite tråkig. Orättvist nog jämför jag med vanilla shake och då faller den platt. Är inte heller ett fan av den rostade kaffe smaken. Men ändå helt ok.
