Mikkeller Beer Geek Breakfast has a thin, cream-colored head, a black appearance, and a few splotchy lacing specks left behind on the glass. The aroma is of dark, slightly turned fruit, spinach, coffee, and dark-roasted barley malt. Taste is of powdery coffee, sweet black bread, char, and mellow bitterness. Mouthfeel is heavy and slightly oily. Mikkeller Beer Geek Breakfast finishes powdery and medium bitter.

Creamy tar black color, with a decent beige-brown head.

Strong aromatic smell of coffee, espresso, a little aggressive but wrapped up well in roasted malt sweetness with hazelnut.

Coffee is defining my first impression of tasting this beer. I find it very interesting, that the coffee flavor is troughout evolving and changing on my palate from the beginning to the end, which gives the beer a decent complexity with a medium-body. Coffee goes very well along with chocolate, perfect mingling together, to one creamy opening, which developes more bitter and malty to the end.

The aftertaste is enormous, lasts for minutes and even longer as the beer warms up. Carbonation is higher than expected, but supports this style of stout easily, not too present a decent freshness. Coffee flavor is really great in this beer, sugar and malts are in perfect balance and support it, without making the beer too sweet or distract from the coffee, the main attraction.

The development through different stages on the palate without loosing focus on the coffee impresses me, and it stays for such long time. Even the late uprising bitterness seems to go well along with a remarcable smoothness, which gives this beer a soft, oily, appreciable mouthfeel. Chocolate becomes very present at the end, and adds a yummy sweet note to the overall bitterness. This beer tastes great!

One of the best smelling oatmeal stouts. I would like to drink same beer with a little bit less coffee taste.

This is one of the absolute strongest coffee tasting stouts I've ever had the pleasure of trying. It could quite literally be a breakfast coffee replacer.
