COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The draft version of Beer Geek Breakfast. The recipe is different from the bottle version. Only available on draft and a limited quantity of bottles at Ølbutikken, Copenhagen.

Note: The Draft Version is a special version brewed in very small amounts (500 litres) and has only been available for a short time. Make sure either the keg or the bottle clearly says ’Draft Version’. If not please rate the normal Beer Geek Breakfast.

FROTHINGSLOSH (4909) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 16, 2014
Sampled on draft at Hou Thou this beer poured a very dark black color with a medium sized foamy brown head that left decent lacing. The aroma was bitter wood, smoke and brewed coffee. The flavor was bitter licorice, wood, perfume, rose water, violet, a bit of coffee and charcoal. Very long finish of perfume, violet and charcoal. Medium body. Pretty awful.

Dogbrick (7952) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - AUG 23, 2011
Sample on Day 3 of the Aces & Ales Strong Beer Festival on 08/14/2011. The menu specified a different recipe than the bottled version. Pours deep brownish-black with a medium tan head that recedes slowly. Top ring of lacing with spots underneath. Aroma of dark chocolate, strong coffee and touches of anise and malt. Rich and smooth body with a roasty character and flavors of bittersweet chocolate, espresso, and hops. The finish has a lasting vanilla coffee aftertaste. Would like to try back to back with the bottled version, but as it stands this is a good beer.

Opaque black stout. Dry palate. Tangy porter like dark malt but also smoky too. Balancing this out is a juicy and hoppy finish with sourish fruit. Overall comes across as a porter. Hangs togther well - prefer this to the regular version.

Bottle. Pours a black body with an off white head. Dark malts, coffee and some light char tones. Malty chocolate tones, hints of licorice and wooden tones. Light warming a hint of irish cream. Dry and bittering with a coffee luster. Nice.

The problem with Mikkeller is they’ve only done four versions of Beer Geek Breakfast. Slackarses. If the beers are all as good as this and the original, then four is not enough. This sorry world needs more. The Draft Versions is a Rolls Royce of a stout, smooth and elegant, with plenty of horsepower under the bonnet. Jet black with a huge head. Porridgey grains, roasted coffee beans and loganberries in the aroma. Gloriously creamy body. Lovely rounded flavours - lactic body, souring milk, rich coffee bitterness and a peppery finish. Terrific stuff. I can’t draw a line between this and the original. (Bottle courtesy of Papsoe at Ecze’s Sydney RB 07 gathering. Many thanks to both.)

radiomgb (2236) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 9, 2007
Black in colour, tan coloured head, quickly dissipating, no lacing. The aroma is of coffee, dark chocolate, some liquorice, burnt roasted malts, oats. The flavour is very roasty, lots of coffee, moderate bitterness, nutty with the ever present dark chocolate. Bitter mouthfeel, medium body, medium/high carbonation. Finishes long, bitter with lots of roasted coffee. Quite good, excellent balance. There is lots of coffee in this one. Mikkeller is quite the brewery.

500ml bottle from <a href=http://www.ratebeer.com/Place/denmark/ target=blank>Ølbutikken in Copenhagen, Denmark.
Bought on May 31, 2006 and opened on July 28, 2007.
Best Before December 2006.
