550ml bottle - $12.99 at Bullock's Wine & Spirits

Appearance: Pours out a jet black body with a frothy, tan-hued head of considerable size.

Smell: Darkened malts with face-aimed roundhouse kicks of roast and even mercilessly charred barley -- plus all the notes later mentioned in the taste. Pleasant coffee concentrate scent that's an absolute joy to smell.

Taste: Instantly, a strong, roasty coffee flavor hits the tongue without any remorse and even lasts well beyond the finish. Abundant, amply sweet tastes of melted dark chocolate morsels, blackstrap molasses, anise, scalded heavy cream, vanilla, and even a goodly-sized pinch of Mac Baren vintage Syrian tobacco join the fray. Flavors of dark fruits and stewed licorice deftly slide into the taste. Some warming, peppery alcohol hints. Bitterish blend of creosote and pine needles, along with all the roast provides more than enough balance to all the supple, chewy maltiness. Finishes rather roasty with a lingering bitterness.

Mouthfeel: Medium-full body. Medium carbonation. Fairly smooth mouthfeel.

Drinkability: Though pricey, it's still a beer I wholly recommend, provided you enjoy hefty stouts and coffee. In terms of stouts, Mikkeller is now 2 for 4 with me. I didn't really care for either Black or Black Hole, but Beer Geek Breakfast was a real treat. Beer Geek Brunch is a beer to thoughtfully sip and savor, maybe while watching an episode of "House", though it's hard not to just gulp it down with much aplomb. The 500ml emptied despairingly quickly.

I had the "Weasel" for awhile and finally opened it tonight.Poured into a imperial nonic a jet black with not a trace of light showing thru,a mocha colored pillowey two finger head atop.an awesome mix of deep coffee roast and bitter chocolate in the nose,a hint of vanilla and roasted nut as well,just a great mix.Rich flavors and obviously highly roasted,bittersweet chocolate and French roast coffee dominate with a tinge of dar fruit and vanilla,a slightly earthy earthy finish rounds the beer out very well.Everything I thought it would be,just a great double stout from a killer brewery.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4

A: Thick, jet black liquid. One fingered brownish airy head that dissipates quickly. Basically no lacings.

S: Strong coffee aromas mostly resembling hard-roasted coffee beans, but also powerful espresso. Plenty of dark chocolate. Roasted, almost burnt malts. Some charred wood and tannins. A very dense and powerful smell.

T: The taste is full of rich espresso flavors. A wonderful taste of freshly brewed coffee and freshly grounded coffee beans. Notes of dark chocolate tries to balance the powerful coffee flavors, but don't really succeed. A faint but prominent taste of vanilla. Hard-roasted malts mix with wood and coal. Perhaps some fruity notes, but they are very faint. The finish is quite bitter actually with hints of tannins, hop aromas, some vanilla sugar and lingering coffee notes.

M: Very full bodied and very viscous - like old engine oil. Very restrained carbonation. Feels fantastic in the mouth.

D: A great coffee stout. Not very balanced though, as the powerful coffee flavors dominate. Still fairly complex. Highly recommended.

A- Inky black with a frothy medium-brown head.

S- Rich burnt coffee beans, light vanilla and chocolate,ash, and a whiff of alcohol and hops.

T- Amazing coffee flavors, smoke, chocolate and cookie, noticable hoppy finish adding depth.

M- Full bodied with soft, creamy carbonation with a slightly astringent feel in the finish.

D- This(with a few others) takes coffee(beer) to new levels. More integrated than geek breakfast.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

A: A thin head but a thick beer, completely black pour.

S: A very strong coffee aroma laced with oatmeal, a very thick smell that completely fills the nostrils.

T: A solid imperial stout, very front heavy with the coffee with an oatmeal and chocolate afterthought.

MF/D: Thick feel, smooth on the palate, would try again, though certainly not my favorite imperial stout. perfect for sharing (thanks hu5om) from the pint bottle.

Deep dark black pour with a 1/2" of creamy tan head that quickly falls. Spotty lacing. Aromas of robust dark malts along with some smokiness. Oatmeal is there along with big coffee and some chocolate as well. The aroma is somewhat earthy.

First sip brings sweet rich dark malts upfront with oatmeal smoothness in tow. Acrid coffee moves in with earthy undertones. Chocolate flavors are present. Flows down with a kick of alcohol heat and lingering roasted coffee flavors. Somewhat smoky as well. Never thought I'd be drinking a coffee beer made from civet cat droppings, but it's pretty darn tasty!

Mouthfeel is smooth and creamy with mellow carbonation. Oats add nice body and makes it go down smooth. It does have a bit of an ABV kick to it. Glad I got to try it, but it's a little bit too expensive for a repeat purchase.

A - Pours a thick, opaque black with a finger of brown head that dissipates rather quickly, leaving a trail of lacing behind.

S - Up front smell is intense deep coffee, accompanied by roasted malts, CHOCOLATE, and slight aromas of fruit.

T - Like the aroma, coffee completely dominates, which, as a coffee lover, I support. Wonderful flavor; some roasted, almost burnt malts, then comes some chocolate notes.

M - nice medium/heavy mouthfeel. This completely coats the palate in a wonderful way.

D - Some apparent abv drops drinkability a little, but this is fantastic for someone who loves both beer and coffee.

16.9oz bottle. Pours an opaque black with a creamy tan head that retains well and laces the glass.

The aroma is sweet malts and oatmeal with some chocolate, black licorice and coffee and a little dark fruit and alcohol.

The flavor is sweet sugary lactic chocolate with some coffee. It has a big sharp roasted bitterness in the finish. The mouthfeel is medium bodied and a little watery.

Overall, very nice. I recall thinking the beer geek breakfast was a little better balanced and more enjoyable.

Opaque black in color with a dark tan head that stayed for about a minute and had a tan collar until I finished the beer. Aroma is heavily roasted, nice sweet coffee and a touch of vanilla. I ended up leaving this beer in the snifter for about 20 minutes before I started drinking it, and I'm very glad I did. Taste was considerably better once it approached proper temperature. Sweetness of the coffee shines in this brew. Also leathery, deep roasted malt, and an earthiness that I associate with some kind of wood (maybe Pine?). Oats really make the mouthfeel nice and silky.
