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.
