4.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Deep black with a thick tan head. Aroma is strong smoke, reminiscent of a barbecue pit. Really reminds me of sitting outside by the smoker at my favorite BBQ joint. Flavor is huge smoke, almost overwhelming until it turns slightly sweet at the end. I can see why they called this Beer Geek Bacon (my bottle said Rauch Geek Breakfast), the flavor reminds me a little of really smoky bacon that has been cooked a little longer than necessary. But what would be a burnt flavor for bacon works to this beer’s favor. My only complaint is that the body is a little thin, but the huge flavor largely makes up for it. Hard to pair with food, this seems like something to drink after dinner, even smoked meat could be overwhelmed by it. Overall, excellent beer and quite unique, one of the better and stronger flavored smoked beers I’ve had. While not something I would pick up regularly, it’s definitely something worth experiencing.
UPDATED: OCT 30, 2017 A very tasty rauchbier, it thankfully avoids the saltiness of most "bacon" flavored beers. Very smooth and drinkable. GenDV138 (7828) - Falls Church, Virginia, USA - SEP 4, 2017

Tap @ Chmielarnia Twarda sold as RAUCH geek breakfast. Clear dark brown. Smoke, chocolate, coffee, something greasy. Coffee and chocolate with a smoke twist. Surprisingly light body for the ABV. Watery and slick. Not among my favourite variants. wojanex (529) - warszawa, POLAND - AUG 1, 2017
Raczej english breakfast, po którym od razu chciałoby się sjesty. I tak wolę swojskie wędzonki Widawy.
