At farmers cabinet with eli. Not overly bacony as it is waxy and peaty. Taste like aged in a lagaluvin scotch barrel. Lol I have to agree it does smell like bandaids and iodine.

TBone (17266) - Pori, FINLAND - JUN 1, 2011
Bottled 500ml (Beer Planet, batch #489, brygget 110310)
Opaque black color, small steady and creamy brown head. Aroma of smoke, black coffee and pipe tobacco. Medium to full-bodied. Lots of tobacco in the flavor, coffee beans, peat, black coffee and ash. Coffee gives a bit unbalanced to this otherwise good brew ... fortunately not vegetably notes as often it does. Slightly too burnt and ashy for my liking.

PapaSkeetSkeet (1010) - Providence, Rhode Island, USA - MAY 31, 2011
Pours black like oil, huge warm, medium-brown head (due to bad pour in part) Aroma of salty smoke and slight astringent roast. Flavor salty smoke up front and lingering with a clean and distinct bitterness and some slighter dry roast and dark chocolate. Light bodied for a 7.5 abv oatmeal stout. Not as good as other benchmark smoked beers in my opinion, particularly rauchbocks.

" Rauch Geek Breakfast" Pours black with a tan head. Aroma is smoke, rich peat, chocolate. Creamy mouth feel. Flavor is chocolate, burnt wood, smoke, peat, some meatiness, campfire. Not as pungently smoky as some, but nicely balanced - tasty

Beerman6686 (6606) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 31, 2011
This poured a straight black color with a beige head. Aroma was lots of smoke, dark roasted malt, and light dark chocolate too. Flavor was just straight campfire and smoked meats, not burnt rubber tastes which is present in some smoked beers. Excellent stuff.

500 ml bottle. Looks fantastic, smells and tastes like a box of band aids. Yuk.

Bottle, fresh batch. Labeled as "Rauch Geek Breakfast". Served at cellar temperature.

Pours black with a large four finger brown head that holds up very well, eventually recedes to a good cap and leaves sheets of lacing behind.

Aroma is pretty intense smoke, a lot of ham, bacon and meat as well as a strong peat and campfire/charred wood/charcoal presence. Even a bit of tire smoke from a burnout. Interesting. The smoke ultimately hides any of the coffee, chocolate, and roasted malt characteristics of the base beer. Very good to excellent strength.

Flavor pretty much mirrors the nose, smoked meats, peat, campfire, charcoal and a hint of tire smoke. The coffee and chocolate are more pronounced in the flavor, coming along in the finish, but the smoke still dominates.

Mouthfeel is medium-plus, creamy and smooth, medium, sometimes prickly carbonation.

Ive been venturing further into smoked beers and this one certainly doesnt disappoint in that aspect and is a unique take on the Beer Geek family. However, the tire burnout aroma and taste are a bit off-putting but luckily it is a minor aspect of an otherwise fantastic brew.

Boliv (1150) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 28, 2011
16.9oz bottle labeled "Rauch Geek Breakfast," shared with Photog. Pours dark, dark brown, black in the glass, with a 2-finger dark brown head that recedes slowly. The aromas are roasty chocolate malt, bittersweet cocoa, toffee and slight coffee, with smoked pork and salty bacon. The flavor is subtle smoke and salted bacon on the front end (I swear, Im getting the lightest note of mint in there somewhere as well), with smoke becoming more pronounced through the middle. This leads to bitter cocoa and caramel, red berry, and a charcoal/burnt meat finish. Creamy, low carbonation, medium to full body, and dry. Very tasty, I wish I had had some bacon and eggs with this.

The aroma is smoke, roast cofee, dark chocolate. The smoke doesnt overpower thankfully. The appearance is a nice deep black, medium brown/tan head. Decent lacing on glass. The flavor is smoky, meaty, salty, roast coffee. Less sweetness than expected. The finish is smoke, roasty, pine hops. medium to medium/thick in body. Very good. Not worth the $12 for the bottle, but good.
