Persistent foam. Scent senses are sharpened by the meeting with high-quality coffee and light pleasant hop, while the taste buds angrily turned on the hard roasted malt tones of coffee easily gentle bitterness and slightly English licorice gently holds it all together until hop bitterness takes over prolonged aftertaste. If you close your eyes sharpened taste impression and the brain gets the necessary time and space to the aforementioned impressions. There are not enough words of praise for the Beer Geek Breakfast. It is far too profound and all-encompassing.

Pours black, nice brown head. Great, very intense, roasted aroma of coffee and chocolate. Very complex taste - sour, then sweet and bitter at finish. Notes of coffee in this beer are simply amazing. Medium bitterness, very smooth. Great!

On cask. Pours a dark black with thin brown head. Has a strong coffee/espresso and chocolate aroma. Taste is strong with chocolate, roasted malts, coffee/espresso, grains and light dark fruit. A very dry malt and grain aftertaste.

A milky, smoky nose. Thick-ish with burnt malt and coffee flavors. I like how much that coffee and roast contributes. I feel the oats late in the throat. It’s a little too smoky for me but you can tell it’s a good beer and you can tell who makes it.

Pours a nice brown/black color with no real head retention or lacing. Has an off smell, but tastes like lightly burnt coffee and dark chocolate. A good beer that is a victim of its appearance.

Black with a small brown head. Aroma of coffee, smoke, chocolate, licorice and pine. Taste is bitter, mild sweet and very light acidic. It is well balanced and has a long after-taste. Body is full, texture is creamy and carbonation is soft.

Now this I like! Wasn’t sure what to expect from a Norwegian stout but it more than delivered. Rich, deep flavour with the right amount of coffee kick at the end, lovely.

Pite na wyjeździe z butelki. W zapachu bez zaskoczeń: kawa i paloność. Smak wytrawny, intensywny aromat palonej kawy, minimalna czekolada na początku, kawowa kwaśność, palona goryczka.

Bottle. Pours a dark black with a mocha head. Smells of roasted malts, chocolate malt. Not getting much coffee, so this is likely an older bottle. (No date.) Tastes of roasted malts, cocoa. A medium bitterness. Mouthfeel is soft, a touch creamy. Lightly bitter, drying finish.
