Botella 75 cl de cervezalandia tomada en el momento en Oviedo 23..10..2015 (r151). Color negro intenso con bastante espuma y varbonico al sercor y al descorchar (el tapón de corcho sale como un cohete al quitar precinto) aromas maltosos tostados con toques ligeros de café, cacao y ligeras especias y maderas, sobretodo al calentar. Sabores también maltosos con ligeros cacaos cafés y vainillas bastante enmascarado por el carbónico y que afloran algo más al final, al calentar. Cuerpo medio de 7.5 vol fácil de beber, bastante gas que sólo desaparece en gran parte al final. Así con todo, bastante buena, lo mejor de la mitad en adelante. Para repetir.

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.

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.
