3.69/5  rDev -3.4%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

330mL bottle into tulip. no bottled on date.

A: pours a very, very, very dark brown. looks thick. head is pretty dark too. tight bubbles. good retention and thick lacing left behind.

S: minor hints of smoke on an otherwise very rich coffee and dark chocolate filled body. smells slightly acrid. a little bit of Band-Aid. reminds me more of peat than smoke at times.

T: tons of coffee flavor. really tastes more like a cup of freshly roasted coffee than beer. the smoke is certainly acrid, but not as intense as I would imagine for a beer called "rauch geek".

M: smooth carb on a medium/full body.

D: good not great. like all of Mikkeller's beers, way over-priced. looking back I probably would have passed as I was hoping for much more of a smokey brew.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

My bottle had a label titled "Raunch Geek Breakfast", so it took me a while to find due to the alias.

a. Dark, Dark brown into black. Poured into a tulip glass - no head - some trace foam lying on top. Cannot be sure of the age of the beer - bottle had no markings. Reading other reviews of 2 finger dark foam heads makes me wonder if this was on the shelf a while.

s. I had coffee, smoke, and bacon - some acidic high note. More and more enjoyable as time went on.

t. The first sip was all smoke flavor - BIG smoke- coffee was layered in as time went on and the smoke was accepted in the pallet. Coffee lingers on the finish. Nice mix.

m. Very good. A bit heavy on the alcohol for a 7.5.

o. Very good beer. I am not a big smoked beer fan out side of Smoke and Dagger from Jack's Abby, which is a mild smoked flavor comparatively.
