A- Pitch black with a thin tan head fading to a persistent ring. Slight lacing.

S- Burnt coffee, highly roasted malts, cigarette ash, chocolate. Complex smell.

T- Strong burnt coffee and sweet black licorice. The roasted maltiness is there also. Bitter hops come through in the finish. Alcohol well hidden.

M- Medium body and smooth. A lighter mouth than expected.

O- Another great stout from the "beer geek" series. Glad I tried it.

Dark, black inch-thick head.

Smells like coffee at first followed by burnt caramel and dark chocolate. The taste is sweet and coffee-bitter. You can definitely smell the alcohol. Mouthfeel very smooth.

Weasel Shit. Mmmmmmm. Dark black color, thick light brown head that fades. Aroma is dark coffee, very nice, but I expected stronger more pungent. Taste is coffee, vanilla, sour fruit late, raspberry, plum, fig. Interesting beer.

Thanks to Dave for sharing the bottle.

Pours black with a tan head, about one fingers worth. Smells like coffee at first followed by oats and chocolate. You can also get a hint of alcohol the warmer it gets. The taste is sweet, very smooth, and a bit boozy at the end. As the beer warms the flavors come out more pronounced, chocolate, coffee, and oats. A very wonderful beer!

I picked up a bottle of Mikkeller's Beer Geek Brunch Weasel a couple weeks ago at the lager, I've been wanting to try this beer for a long time and this will be my first time having a beer from Mikkeller, so lets see how it goes. 2015 Vintage. Poured from a brown 12oz bottle into a teku.

A- The label looks nice, it goes well with the name and it's a little eye catching. It poured a dark black color that didn't let any light come through and it had around a half a fingers worth of dark tan head that eventually faded away and it left some spotty lacing behind. This is a good looking stout, I have no complaints.

S- The aroma starts off with a higher amount of medium sweetness with a unique fruity aroma being the first to show up and it imparts a mixture of berrys and dark fruit like aromas. Up next comes the coffee which is a little lighter than I expected. Towards the end I get some sweet malt aromas with some creamy aspects to it with some slightly charred and light smokey aromas showing up in the background. This beer has a pretty nice aroma, but the fruitiness holds back the coffee a little.

T- The taste seems to be similar to the aroma and it starts off with a higher amount of medium sweetness that's almost highly sweet with the coffee being the first to show and it has a nice black coffee and roasted flavor and it has just a little bit of an espresso like flavor. Up next comes the malts which impart some sweet malt flavors with the same smokey and charred aspects that I got in the aroma. Up next comes the alcohol which is pretty noticeable and I think it could have been hidden better. On the finish there's a slightly higher amount of medium bitterness with a little more alcohol and rich chocolate and cocoa like aftertaste. This is a pretty nice tasting beer, but I do think it's a little rough around the edges.

M- Not the smoothest, a little crisp, a little creamy, the alcohol could have been hidden a little better, on the lighter side of being full bodied with a slightly lower amount of medium carbonation. The mouthfeel was pretty nice, but I think it could have been a little smoother.

Overall I thought this was a pretty nice beer and a nice example of the style, but it just wasn't as great as I thought it might be, it's not bad by any means, but it just doesn't have anything that makes it really stick out as being better than the rest. This beer had ok drinkability, one is enough for me, anymore would be too much. What I like the most about this beer is the appearance and rich coffee flavors, those were both pretty good. What I liked the least about this beer is the fruity aspect and the boozyness, those could use a little work. I don't think I would buy this again, but I wouldn't turn one down, and while it's worth checking out if you really like the style, I can't say that I highly recommend it. All in all I was little let down with this beer, it wasn't bad, but it just didn't come together as well as I was hoping. It made for an ok first impression for Mikkeller and its it's a little above average for the style. Nice job guys, but a little smoothing out and this could be a very nice beer.
