Reviewed from notes.

Pours a beautiful ebony with a brown half a finger of head. Dissipates rather quickly. Surprised by the look of this that it's not actually a stout.

Aroma is amazing, sweet matly, burnt biscuit, heavy coffee, dark chocolate. Slight hop aroma in there somehow coming through. Just great.

Very delicious. Chocolate and coffee are most prevalent. Sweetness abound! Hops are on the back end and very subtle at that. No date on the bottle so hops could have faded a bit. Tastes more like a hoppy stout than a black IPA but it's still great.

Very thick and rich, stout-like again. Aftertaste has a lingering bitterness that rounds it out nicely.

This was my first try at Mikkeller and I'm so glad that I know how good they can be. Probably the best black IPA I've had although it's more like a stout. But really great stuff.

2014 release
Mikkeller Beer Hop Breakfast
Black India Pale Ale brewed with coffee

Drank direct from the bottle, circumstances being what they were. Beautiful full rich taste and mouthful, the roasted malts balanced well with the strong hop presence. Nice coffee notes at the end.

Top-notch beer, don't let this one slide by if you enjoy beer brewed with coffee.

Mikkeller Beer Geek Breakfast is amazing and one of my favorites, but this beer shows that you can't just add hops to anything to make it better. The coffee and hops compete with each other too much and destroy each other to create another hoppy stout mostly indistinguishable from the others. It looks nice at least. I really like hops, but there are other beers better suited to showcase hop flavors than this.

Says "Black India Pals Ale brewed with coffee" on bottle. It is. Ipa with lots of coffee.
