elgiacomo (745) - Ringgold/Fort Oglethorpe, Georgia, USA - MAY 29, 2011
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.

tgncc (3118) - Bellmore, New York, USA - MAY 27, 2011
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.

planky84 (2986) - Lee, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 27, 2011
Bottle from the Brewdog online beer shop. Black pour with a thick tan head. Smoke, coffee, dark chocolate and brown sugar aromas. Oaky flavours of chocolate, dark roast coffee and a little smoke. Nicely balanced. Dry, smoky-roast finish.

ksurkin (1021) - Norfolk, Virginia, USA - MAY 23, 2011
500ml bottle, labeled Rauch Geek Breakfast, from the greenville beer exchange. pours a silky, pure black with a thick, creamy, dark beige head that has outstanding retention and leaves thick sheets of lace. aroma is wonderful with huge notes of peat, campfire smoke, freshly melted tar, and cigar ash backed by subtle notes of roast coffee, dark chocolate, and salty molasses. flavor is delcious as well with the base beer notes of dark chocolate, fresh roasted coffee, and raw oats coming through and balancing the savory notes of smoked meat, charred wood, salty pretzel with hints of earthy hops and molasses on the back end. palate is medium bodied with brisk carbonation and a long, lingering, smokey and bittersweet cocoa finish. overall, a great smoked brew.

Photog (215) - Camillus, New York, USA - MAY 20, 2011
Hot damn this was quite the beer. Started out opaque black with a brown head. Aroma was of smoked pork and heavy smoke. Hints on roasty chocolate malt. It was like smelling a wood burning stove. Taste was smoky almost like charcoal and bitter dark chocolate. Finish was bitter but not from hops and like roasted coffee and mocha. Mildly sweet. This was a bit astringent but not off putting. Palate was creamy and almost gritty at the end. One of the best in a while. (Mikkeller Rauch Geek Breakfast)

PatBateman81 (178) - Caserta, ITALY - MAY 17, 2011
Bottle 50 cl tasted @ Karhisma Birroteca (Piedimonte Matese, Caserta - Italy). Flavorsome aroma of bacon, molasses, smoked cheese, woody, roasted sugar, chocolate, coffee. Intense dark head, not so wide anyway. Creamy-oily full body, really good feeling about its dainty like velvet that warms palate. Among above-mentioned roasted and smoked malty notes, theres a nice oatmeal, coffee and chocolate again. Crisp, doubtless crisp, balanced carbonation. Some ashes. Roasty and bitter lasting finish. Below the Alaskan Smoked Porter IMO, but one of the best smoked ever had still.

Boy, I feel like Ive hit the jackpot tonight. Double Simcoe unfiltered followed by this gem. Dark brown pour with a tan head and nice lacing. Smoke aroma with undertones of molasses, caramel, rich chocolate, and coffee. Not for the faint of heart. This packs a flavor punch, and it certainly hits the spot. Really nice offering, once again from Mikkeller.

Palme (4410) - Bergen, NORWAY - MAY 16, 2011
Shared 0.5l bottle. Pours a near black body with near no head. Really nice aroma: mildly smoked and roasted, light woody and some thin chocolate next to a little coffee. Really full-bodied has a fantastic creamy mouthfeeling and low on the carbonation. The flavors really brings back some good memories from the time I sat @ Mikkeller Bar with a bottle of this fantastic brew and got totally blown away from the fantastic "thick flavors". Nice fatty bacon with dark bitter chocolate - combined with milk chocolate, coffee, a little burned toast and slightly ashy. Ends warming with a long lasting roasted aftertaste. Beautiful!
