3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
750ml bottle. Jet black colour with huge, thick, frothy to creamy, long lasting, moderately lacing, brown head. Chocolately dark malty aroma, notes of coffee, cappuccino, mocha, white coffee, a cautious touch of oak, an evaporating floral and "Hubba Bubba" bubblegum-like bretty touch. Taste is initially dry, roasty dark malty, later with additional notes of coffee, mocha, very subtle sweetness, bitter, minimally herbal hoppy overtones; hints of oak in the finish. Not as overwhelming as the regular version.

Trockener malziger Antrunk, intensive Kaffeenoten. Würzig, durch den Kaffee zu trocken, etwas Süße hätte gut getan. Herber Kaffeeabgang, nicht ganz rund. 11/9/7/10/12/11

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Shared 750 ml. bottle. Started with a "shot gun" cork extraction, then poured to snifters with a black/brown hue, overly active & frothy, tan head foam that reduced slowly, and thick, wavy lacing. The nose was extremely roasted, with rich espresso, and hints of cocoa & toffee. Somewhat full bodied, with overly effervescent carbonation that interrupted the tasting a bit, but a pleasant creaminess to the mouthfeel, and bitterness that was quite lingering, earthy, & dry, with some hints of smoke & wood. A few hiccups(& burps) but otherwise impressive.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle: The aroma consists of moderate-heavy roasted malt, coffee, lighter chocolate, molasses, light pine, oak, faint vanilla, and smoke. It pours a dark brown with no transparency and a one finger creamy tan head that eventually fades to a thin foam. There is a good amount of thin webbing left on the sides of the glass. The flavor starts with a quick dose of chocolate and a touch of molasses. The finish has moderate roasted coffee, roasted malt, lighter pine, oak, and a touch of vanilla. It’s medium bodied with mild carbonation and a somewhat soft mouthfeel. Overall, it’s been awhile since I’ve had the regular Beer Geek Breakfast. This is really good, but I believe I liked the regular version better.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Black with a large diminishing frothy light brown head. White wine, white pepper, roasted malt, earthy coffee, white wood. Medium body, oily texture, medium carbonation, light/medium sweet and bitter. It’s pretty soft and flavourful and the barrels fuck with my head much. Kind of light bodied with lots of flavour impressions. Long finish with barrel notes, dusty black malt and earthy coffee. Stands out.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Roasted malt and a lot of coffee in the aroma. The taste is just right with a lot of coffee and dark chocolate. Very heavy bitterness that fills the mouth forever. Truly a beer for me. Follow me @ Kung av öl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.
