Black pour, brown head. Sweet and sugary aroma. More awesome diabetes ale...thats a good thing in my book. Lots of whiskey, roasted malt, toasted marshmallow, vanilla and char. Flavor has some great chocolate, whiskey, smores, asphalt, tar...mmm mmmm good! MesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 12, 2010

Excellent black brown with a short lived tan head. Wow.This is what Beer Geek used to be. As in, fucking epic. This takes me back to the days before they brewed in Belgium and a bloody good thing it is too. Aroma of Breakfasts gone by. Huge and adorable roasty coffee, lavishly hopped, some pepper and spice, damp oak and a hint of germoline. Oh and a hint of whisky too. All of the same in the flavour. Magnificent coffee as it used to be. So roasty and warming. The initial hit of sweet sugary goodness is brutally kicked to death by Italian morning beverages followed with the oak and spice. The Speyside blendage is only faintly apparent but it sits just so well. The hints of fruit and leather are perfectly harmonius along side the beery stuff. The finish is sheer beauty. Superb length to the coffee and the whisky sneaks further to the front the longer it goes. The aftertaste is just sooooo bloody roasty its almost in rauchbier territory. God how I wish the regular Beer Geek still tasted like this. Another stellar offering from Mikkel.
Bottle at PilsnerPeter’s RBSG 2010 thanks to Brian from 12% imports. Black pour with tan head. Nose is oatmeal, roasted barley, wood and light smoke. Taste is very dry nuts, smoked chocolate and hint of whiskey and oak. Nightfall (1307) - Hamburg, GERMANY - NOV 23, 2011
During Mikkel’s and Thomass’ visit in Athens, Oct 2009. I am a big fan of the original BGB and really wanted to try this. Teh carbonation level is very low, apart fro mthe characteristic BGB aromas and flavours, the beer has gained a lot on peated smoke aroma and flavours, wood notes a slight touch of speyside whiskey flavor (I expected it to be more). All in all a great beer. hlkanga (204) - - AUG 19, 2012
500 ml bottle @ Beer Hunters. Pours opaque black colour with minimal beige head. Aroma just blowed my mind away with perfect roasty malt, black coffee, chocolate, a hint of smoke and oak. Delicisious taste of milk chocolate, strong espresso coffee and a hint of whisky. Full bodied, smooth mouthfeel and soft carbonation. Long espresso finish. Barrel aging gave nice roundness to the aroma and flavour but didn´t dominate them. This is mothers milk.

On bottle at Borefts BF 09. Black, lasting tan head. That’s lovely. Original beer shines through with just some subtle orange fruit flavour hints. Slight whisky hints. God that’s lovely. Just a lovely coasting of intense espresso and dark bitter choc. omhper (25249) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - NOV 27, 2009
Bottled at Örebro Öl- och Whiskeyfestival. Near black, small head. Careful whisky and coffee aroma. Medium dry with near full body. Lots of mild coffee and just a tad of whisky Concentrated flavour, but also very well balanced and quite drinkable. Great stuff! GT (10000) - San Diego, California, USA - MAR 16, 2010
500mL gold wax from Alvinne’s little but awesome beer shop. Shared with Urbeer and Travlr. Pours near black with a weak head/low carbonation (no problem since its BA). Aroma of cedar, barrel, lavender perfume, spicy whiskey, caramel, coffee. Taste is rich chocolate milkshake, cedar chest, wood resin, fresh espresso. Very subtle barrel notes. The aging really takes out the harshness of the original beer and adds some nice complexity, smoothness, refinement. Does wonders! Dry finish. Medium bodied. Awesome.

Very great beer indeed. Not that quite different from the origin, but smoother and with a high drinkable palate with many notes like some smoke, whisky, oak , leather, roasted coffee, this special beergeek taste and just lovely and lordy.
