Mikkeller Beer Geek Breakfast

Despite the fact that it’s been a VERY long time since I had Mikkeller Beer Geek Brunch, it still is in my top 5 beers ever. Thus, I was excited to hear that my local liquor store Julio’s had got a batch of the Beer Geek Breakfast in. There’s a breakfast version?!?!?

I decided to share my bottle with our friends Sean and Kerry and did so this past Sunday.

Unfortunately it has been far too long since I had the Brunch to compare it to the Breakfast. The Breakfast will have to reviewed in it’s own context.

The brew had a really good head…the kind that can sneak up and get ya if you’re not careful. As I expected, this is a giant coffee/toffee monster. Lots of roasted malts.

Sean and Kerry liked it and they called out something interesting about the flavor – hops! Yup, if you’re paying close enough attention you’ll find you get some floral/citrusy hops notes. Normally with a big imperial stout I find the bitterness comes more from the roasted stuff rather than the hops…not in this case.

I thought the brew was delicious, albeit a little over-priced. Nowhere as good as I recall the Brunch being.

  1. Beer Geek Breakfast has been around a lot longer than the Brunch. The Brunch came out a year or 2 ago and is more expensive than the Breakfast. I have yet to try the Brunch (have a bottle here), but I love Beer Geek Breakfast.

  2. I just picked up a bottle of the Beer Geek Breakfast the other day. It’s not something we see a lot of here in central CT. Your review doesn’t really inspire me to grab it anytime soon, but I am already curious about the brunch!

  3. This is actually one of my favorite coffee imperials. My favorite part aboutit is that little bit of smoked malt giving the taste that bit of smokey mystery. I am interested to know how much this costs in the US. It is about 10 dollars per half liter bottle here in Denmark (even though the brewery is just a bit over an hour up the road).

    1. Hey Alex. Thanks for stopping by to comment.

      I’d have to check the price to be exactly sure, but my guess is that it’s roughly $15 for the size bottle I have in the picture.


      1. That sounds about right with the import costs and everything. A crazy thing here is that i can go to the beer store and buy a lagunitas bomber for about the same price as a comparable style of Danish craft brew that was made right here. I think that is why a lot of Danish craft brewers are starting to brew their beers on contract in the US to try and manage prices in the foreign market.
