4.23/5 rDev +2.7%
Poured from a bottle into a large snifter.
A: Pours a deep dark brown, pretty much black Beautiful 2finger mocha head. Plenty lacing and decent amounts of retention.
S: Smells of coffee, chocolate and roasted malts.
T: Huge roasted malts up front. Some chocolate peaking through and the bitter coffee comes in at the tail and lingers.
M: Full body, medium carbonation.
O: Delicious! Really surprised me.It's an excellent coffee stout, quite possibly the best i've had.

RIch, opaque black body with a somewhat thin yet creamy head. A very heady aroma of coffee, cocoa, and bitter chocolate. Charred bread, roasted grains, bitter chocolate, all capped with a moderate, soothing bitterness and a hint of sourness.
Delectable! Rich, smooth, very flavourful. If you're looking for a liquid "breakfast bread", this is an excellent choice.

A: Thick, pitch black with a beautiful, foamy, quickly-building, medium brown head that settles into very little lace and retention.
S: Deliciously roasted malt, dark roast coffee, and dark chocolate.
T: Heavily roasted malt. Very dark coffee. Like chewing a coffee bean. Cocoa nibs/dark chocolate.
M: Smooth, rich, and flavorful. Becomes a bit cloying towards the end. Just a ton of roasted malt.
O: A fantastic Oatmeal Stout. A must try for any Stout or coffee fan (it's pricey so it's a good treat).

Opaque black with a thin medium brown head that leaves a ring of foam on the glass. Nose is chocolate, coffee and oats. Taste is burnt coffee and chocolate, with a dry, slightly burnt finish with only a light hop bitterness. Feel is on the thick side and quite creamy. Overall this is a strong coffee stout that I would probably drink more often if it was less expensive.

3.7/5 rDev -10.2%
Poured from a 500ml bottle into a pint glass.
Pours a dark brown/black colour with a decent frothy head. Definitely looks good thus far.
Smells like dark burnt malts with a bit of coffee too.
Tastes not like I expected, like a stout but a bit too watery for something of this strength, making it not too pleasant to drink, though ok.
Overall a bit of a let down considering the enormous price and the hype.

Picked this up at my favorite beer store in Belgium, Dranken Geers. Pitch black pour with two finger tan head with decent retention and nice lacing. The coffee is the star in the nose. Rich and roasty with hints of cocoa, dark chocolate, and a little booze. The taste follows suit with loads of roasty coffee, burnt espresso, and cocoa with just a touch of vanilla. The mouthfeel is creamy and thick with a syrupy bitter finish. Very drinkable for the style. Another winner from Mikkeller.

Mikkeller Beer Geek Breakfast. No freshness info. Served in a brandy snifter.
Pours with almost three fingers of light brown head sitting on top of a body that's all-but-black. Decent head retention. Looks pretty good. 4.0
Interesting dose of coffee in the aroma; nothing subtle about it, it almost smells like hot coffee. Very aromatic. There's a musty character to the black roast. A little mealy. Hints of dark fruits/berries. I think what sets this apart from other coffee stouts that I've had is the caramelly nose. Definitely picking up a dulce de leche aroma fluttering around. 4.0
Coffee with artificial caramel creamer. Light blackberry note and molasses. Steely finish with roast malt bitterness high. Slightly attenuated and almost absent of alcohol. Sweet, but not as sweet as the nose, nor as sweet as I had expected. Husky in the grain department. Kiss of earthy hops with a tiny medicinal note that is interesting. An interesting craft. 4.0
Feels pretty damn good. Almost sessionable at 7.5%. Thick creamy body and a workable brushing on the back of the tongue. 4.5
I'm enjoying sipping on this, however, I could probably gulp it down inch-by-inch and not terribly miss it when's it's gone. Happy to have tried it, but more so looking forward to the Beer Geek Brunch Weasel that fellow BA Jeremy landed me. Calvados Barrel, to boot. 4.0

A - Deep dark black, 1/4 finger tan head and some sticky lacing
S - smooth chocolate, great coffee, sugar, lots of hoppiness, sugar sweet malts, grainy yeast, Cinnamon, vanilla, slight molasses and more malts
T - creamy chocolate, nice coffee, huge malts sweet/roasted, oats, cereal, nice hop notes, bready yeast, nice barley, wood and terrior
M - Medium plus body, well balanced, nice complexity, medium acidity and a very long bittersweet finish
D/O - Very nice, smooth and easy to drink. Has awesome flavor, nice complexity and a silky smooth all around awesomeness. This is a great stout. If you are getting into stouts, this is a must. Very refreshing and leaves not much to be desired
Final thought - $6 a pop and a decent 7+% abv, this is another stout winner.

lovely stout here, and indeed an appropriate breakfast for a beer geek! pours rich and black, coffee colored but not nearly as thick as the brunch. beautiful toffee colored head that sits high atop the black abyss and lasts the whole time. smells like a cup of coffee that got spilled into a bowl of oatmeal. the oats are quite strong, and the coffee is more of a coffee grounds feel, acidic. flavor is the same, robust coffee flavors and acidity, strong bitter hops as well. mellow mouthfeel from the oats and the medium carbonation. the body is full, but not overly thick. there is some yeast sediment in this one that settles out, and also what seems to be coffee grounds right in there! this is one heck of a coffee stout, a perfect example of the style in my opinion.
