500mL - Rauch Geek Breakfast - bottle. Pour is jet black with a smallish tan head that falls away rather quickly leaving a thick ring of lace around the rim of the glass. Aroma is smoky, malty, dark roasted coffee and chocolate with a touch of caramel. Flavor up front is vanilla, caramel, chocolate followed by smoked bacon, peated malt and dark coffee in the finish. Over all an incredible, complex stout, creamy, smoky, what a treat and for my $$ right on the money.

Rozczarowanie, jest wedzonka ogniskowa, troche czeko w tle, malo ciala... e tam takie. A wersja beczkowa taka fajna byla... Jyrsa (890) - - AUG 5, 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 (285) - warszawa, POLAND - AUG 1, 2017
Raczej english breakfast, po którym od razu chciałoby się sjesty. I tak wolę swojskie wędzonki Widawy. Jimbo2 (516) - DENMARK - JUN 17, 2017
Totally decent. No bacon. Mellow, non-assertive smoke. Some chocolate, roasted malt. Low carbonation.

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.
