Black in colour, tan coloured head, quickly dissipating, no lacing. The aroma is of coffee, dark chocolate, some liquorice, burnt roasted malts, oats. The flavour is very roasty, lots of coffee, moderate bitterness, nutty with the ever present dark chocolate. Bitter mouthfeel, medium body, medium/high carbonation. Finishes long, bitter with lots of roasted coffee. Quite good, excellent balance. There is lots of coffee in this one. Mikkeller is quite the brewery.

500ml bottle from <a
href=http://www.ratebeer.com/Place/denmark/ target=blank>Ølbutikken in Copenhagen, Denmark.
Bought on May 31, 2006 and opened on July 28, 2007.
Best Before December 2006.
Thin, brown, mostly diminishing head. Oily, opaque, near black/very dark brown body. The nose is filled with aggressive but wonderful roasted grain, not overdone. Looming and exquisite coffee. Ample bittersweet chocolate and mellow cherry/raspberry background notes. Mild toasted nuttiness, moderate alcohol, light lactic acid. The aroma is definitely that of Beer Geek Breakfast, a muddled and less exciting version of the bottled version of the same beer. The flavor is surrounded by milk chocolate tendencies due to generous lactic notes. Sweetness is medium to medium-high, bitterness moderate and acidity mild. A faint astringency grows wioth each sip. The finish is bittersweet, coffee and chocolate lingering, smooth. Medium-full bodied, creamy, adequately carbonated. Tasty, unremarkable though very drinkable.

Courtesy boboski. Deep, deep burnt brown color, really reminded me of a great espresso. Aroma is well integrated, roasted and toasted grains and malt, dark roasted coffee, a slight spiciness, maybe a hint of raisins. Flavor is a continuation of the aroma, with the roasted component shining strong. I really dig this brewer and this beer. mgumby10 (1856) - Jupiter, Florida, USA - SEP 6, 2007
Courtesy boboski. Pours black with a quickly disappearing light brown head. Huge roast and chocolate aromas fill the air. Dark, toasty malts, some coffee, and maybe a touc of peanut butter were detectable. I really liked the nose. The taste is pretty big coffee, although the flavor seems somewhat subdued a bit. A little bit sweet, the chocolate is definitely apparent, with a mild sweet bitterness towards the finish. A little bit creamy mouthfeel, which borders on sticky. i think I like the bottled beer geek a little better, but this is close. SoLan (1550) - Florida, USA - SEP 6, 2007
Courtesy boboski. Murky dark brown and a small, creamy brown cap. Aroma of roasty burnt malt, bittersweet chocolate, roasted coffee, vanilla, dry wood. Very similar flavor, more roast presence. Medium body, smooth. Very drinkable. Solid.

20060922 Bottle shared at Dickinsonbeer’s O-Fest. Once again, I’m going to assume that Joe brought this one, although I’m less confident with this one. I this tasting was nothing else, it was rich with Danish beers, and that’s alright. Black, thick, unctuous, gorgeous. Coffee, peat, and some mold smoke all meld famously in this one. Not nearly as viscous as it appears. Pretty hoppy to finish plus heaps (heaping spoonfuls?) of coffee flavor and bitterness. Lingering resinous bite. The crazy Danes nailed it with this one.

Bottle shared by cquiroga on 12/1/06: Pours an opaque black with a dense, creamy light brown head. Aroma of sweet grainy earthy dark malt with some bittersweet dark chocolate and coffee notes. Body starts fairly full and sweet with lots of earthy bittersweet dark chocolate and fresh roasty coffee. Smooth and well-balanced with a lingering dark chocolate finish. kramer (6682) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 14, 2007
500 ml bottle, via Storm. Pours a black body that allows no light to pass through under a fine bubbled dark brown head. Some spotty lacing remained, and a good amount of sediment in the bottle. Great deep roasted malt nose with lots of chocolate, coffee, some alcohol, anise, yeast, a hint of smoke, and a little hoppiness. Flavor is full of roast and coffee up front with a little burnt malt and a dry chalkiness. Finished with dark roasted coffee, light yeast, and a moderate amount of malt derived bitterness. Mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with a nice slightly oily texture and moderate fizzy carbonation that keeps it from being too sticky on the finish. This was pretty great. On par with the regular Beer Geek Breakfast for sure in my opinion. dornoy (701) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - FEB 18, 2007
This brew has a strong coffee aroma and taste. It wouldn’t be bad on a long, cold, dark, Scandinavian evning. But it’s not the best I’ve had. Spiesy (2338) - Sydney, Greater London, AUSTRALIA - FEB 12, 2007
Draught, at Olbaren, Copenhagen, Denmark
Big thick body, with a huge beige head. Chocolate, tabaco and all things stoutish and nice. Another strong performing beer on the night Ungstrup and Sk8viking bent me out of shape. Love your work boys.
