Mikkeller Beer Geek Breakfast
From Mikkeller – Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, many say, and if you are a beer geek there is no better way to start the day than with a powerful, complex morning stout. The unique mix of oats and coffee gives this beer large body and power, while the coffee, at the same time, creates a nice balance.
Mikkeller – Beer Geek Breakfast – 1 pint 9 oz. bottle poured into a beer glass. 7.5% abv. Shared with a great man at Naja’s Place in Redondo Beach, CA. (Click the image to see the entire label)
Appearance: Pours a midnight brown with a sturdy ring of khaki colored foam on top. The beer almost looks creamy or frothy.
Aroma: A nice, freshly prepared cup of coffee.
Taste: Acidic, medium roasted coffee and roasty malts. Some chocolate sweetness goes in between the coffee bitterness.
Mouthfeel: A silky smooth texture.
Overall: The best coffee stout I have had to date. Really impressive, and gets better once it hits room temperature.
