Gachupines (1252) - USA - JUN 5, 2011
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.

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 Mikkeller’s 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.

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 it’s balanced by an earthy, smoky bitterness. This is one very tasty dark brown beer with some pleasant savory and coffee notes.

4.2
60minuteman (1714) - West Chester, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 6, 2017
Smoky smell, bacon, sausage, oat, cocoa and coffee. Flavor is smoke and it’s astringently bitter. A full mouthful. Harsh and very dark.

HuskerTan (2202) - Ravenna, 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 wasn’t bad at all. Well balanced and no single flavor was overpowering. More smoked umami flavor and more coffee and this would really be divine.

Salty bacon, hints of fish, sweet rich coffee, dates, honey, aggressive medium roasted smoked bitterness, roasty oat light sweetness
