TheHulk (486) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - APR 27, 2011
Strong dark malts aroma dominated by the aroma underscored by hops and %. Not much foam on this one, nice lacing though, nice and dark. Thick sweet stout wih lots of bittering matched up with% at the end give the Mikkeller breakfast flavou I’ve come to expect and enjoy. The coffee is noticably absent from this breakfast, but the stoit delivers.

Cole (967) - , Alberta, CANADA - APR 27, 2011
Pours black with a thick brown head. Aroma is very strong it smells like a stout. rich and roasty. I smell coffee and chocolate. the hops are there. but the stout comes through very strong. Very bitter flavour. It is assaulting my palate. the flavour is so strong. The stout is very bold and complex and as you are enjoying the flavor of it all of a sudden. BAM!! bitter hops. It breaks the flavour and takes things over. This beer is unbalanced and I am not enjoying it. They have ruined a good stout. Or they have made an over the top black IPA. Either way this beer does not work.

Case (150) - GERMANY - APR 27, 2011
Same pitch black pour with large brown head as the regular Beer Geek Breakfast. The aroma is pure pungent hops - so strong that it’s hard to make out any other aromas. The hops continues on into the taste and mixes well with the bitter chocolate and roasted coffee flavours. This is less sweeter than the Beer Geek Breakfast and has a lovely citrusy-piney hoppy finish. When Mikkeller says "hop" he really means it! Really more like a Black IPA. Wonderful!

Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - APR 25, 2011
Bottle at Home. Pours a near black body with a creamy coffee tan head that had nice lacing and sticks to the glass leaving behind a modest creamy ring. Aromatically a beautiful marriage between fresh hop tones, roasted chocolate and bitter coffee roast. Sweet and hoppy up front with a nice fresh cut grass y tone, followed by a lighter hoppy sweetness prickly pine, hints of citrus leaves you thirsty for more. Rounds out a bit bitter with that roasted coffee bitterness but that even soon subsides to make room for that lingering grass y bittering hoppiness. This is delicious, can hardly keep it in my glass. Drink asap.

DuffMan (6156) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - APR 22, 2011
Bottle, shared with Parksy. Near black pour, low dense light brown head. Aroma is equally intense bitter roast and pine and pith hops. Flavours are the expected roasty coffee base layered over with piney hops--- tons of hops in fact! Hugely bitter finish. A chimeric blend of styles: part stout, part IPA. This could easily be re-categorized as a black IPA in my opinion. Very tasty.

pineypower (2402) - Pine Barrens, New Jersey, USA - APR 19, 2011
Bottle via EZ liquors. Thanks Ant. Pours black with a thin tan head. Aroma is of citrus and pine hops, roast, chocolate and some coffee. Taste is complex with a nice mouthfeel, notes of coffee, chocolate, roast and a lot of lingering citrusy/pine hops in there on the finish. Very solid.

socaltay (204) - Ventura, California, USA - APR 18, 2011
Very interesting taste. The coffee bitterness and the hop bitterness blend together to make it an interesting transition between the two flavors. The aroma is of hops and coffee. The appearance is very black with a brown head that has great retention. Good beer overall, However; I am looking forward to the beer geek brunch weasel more

oh6gdx (20004) - Vasa, FINLAND - APR 17, 2011
Bottled. Quite much pitch black colour, small beigeish brown head. Aroma is hops, grass, liquorice, toffee and some maltyness. Flavour is liquorice, some bready and sweetish malts along with floral and grassy hops. Mild old black coffee as well as some burnt wet wooden notes as well.

jrallen34 (3478) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 15, 2011
black body with a huge medium mocha head, great retention, looks great... interesting nose with coffee with a very citrus hop finish... not a fan of this at all, the hops are too strong and citrusy and that does not go with the coffee at all, the coffee is also very bitter... heard some great things but disappointed here

dmac (3742) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - APR 15, 2011
500 ml bottle from EZ thanks to Dean. Poured a good looking pitch black body underneath an average sized tight foamy dark brown head. Aroma offresh hops, citrus, roastiness, oats, earhty. Smooth bodied with average carbonation, lingering toasty and bitter aftertaste, fuller bodied with an almost creamy feel. Flavor of coffee and citrus rind, grapefruit, earth, dark toast. Great beer highly impressed.
