a_cross (639) - Poole, Dorset, - DEC 23, 2012
Black, with a ruddy coloured head; aroma of smoked meat; smoky, espresso coffee, thick, peaty; nice charcoal, ashy sensation in the background; like liquid frazzles; lovely, well worth the crazy high price as an annual treat.

Pours black with a small head. Nose shows subtle, coffee, a bit of chocolate, very subtle smoke and light grassy hops. Flavours include coffee, bready and toasty malt, subtle sweet smoked malt and light peppery notes.

Brigadier (3635) - Chagrin Falls, Ohio, USA - MAR 31, 2017
12 ounce bottle
Delving deep in the cellar I came across this and decided to share it one evening. The bottle called it "Rauch Geek" but it was fairly apparent what to expect based on Mikkellers reputation. This one hits a home run and its only drawback is that it might break the budget to keep too much around.

Aroma / Appearance - A fluid black base builds from waves of icy legs. Smoky bacon bits, coffee, and dry bitterness engulf the air as if you were walking into a diner during the peak of breakfast. Dark fruits underscore the richness.

Flavor / Palate - Malty coffee, bacon soaked in ash, and more meatiness than any beer has the right to possess dominate the profile. The richness permeates the palate so well that it takes a long time to fade. If you are tired of super high gravity offerings or experimental sours track down a Beer Geek and find out for yourself why they remain one of the best in the world.

MetalNHopHead (1841) - Lincoln, Nebraska, USA - MAR 25, 2017
The Smoked variant of Beer Geek Breakfast takes the hugely malty and chocolaty framework and adds some smoky umami to the mix. Meaty, roasty, chocolaty characteristics in the aromatics and flavor. Rich texture but its balanced by an earthy, smoky bitterness. This is one very tasty dark brown beer with some pleasant savory and coffee notes.

60minuteman (1581) - West Chester, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 6, 2017
Smoky smell, bacon, sausage, oat, cocoa and coffee. Flavor is smoke and its astringently bitter. A full mouthful. Harsh and very dark.

HuskerTan (2077) - Kearney, Nebraska, USA - MAR 5, 2017
Draft. A- Light smoke, light chocolate. A- Black color, dark liquid, tan head. T- Smoke, subtle umami, tobacco, leather, roasty. P- Full body, average texture, average carbonation, roasty finish. O- Not much bacon or coffee, both of which I wanted a lot of. That said, it wasnt bad at all. Well balanced and no single flavor was overpowering. More smoked umami flavor and more coffee and this would really be divine.

SureFaust (12) - Oregon, USA - FEB 6, 2017
Pour: Oil black with a nice chocolate head. Carbonation maintains plenty through. Aroma: Wood, Uncooked Ham, Pine, Tobacco, Earth Taste: Raw Bacon, Firewood, Roasted Coffee, Animal Fat, Oil, Light Oak Drinkability: 3 out of 5, a little more ABV and I think I would really like this. I love beers that push the boundary of what we think a beer is. Keep up the good work.
