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.

Very nice beer.
Pours a nice dark beer. A little brown foam forms at the top. Aroma is chocolate, caramel, roasted malt, and that Imperial quality of stouts. Taste is somewhat bitter, coffee, but then it is sweet and absolutely addicting. Very well balanced beer, may get you tipsy. Easy to drink, alcohol is almost not noticeable. Body is syrupy, perfect.
