Mikkeller Beer Geek Brunch

Mikkeller Beer Geek Brunch

This Imperial Coffee Stout is brewed out of San Diego CA at the Mikkeller Brewery. It has a big ABV at 10.9% and is available year round.

Dark color, thick brown head that laces the glass. That is what this Imperial Coffee Stout brings to the table in the appearance field. Looks pretty promising at this point. The aroma is rather sweet with roasted malts, and some brown sugar, with a hint of coffee. Nice but slightly underwhelming. This beer has a very thick mouthfeel to it. I get a lot of roasted malts, and chocolate, however the coffee is also just slightly there at the end. Beer Geek Brunch does have a very nice balance to it however which somewhat saves it.

Overall I consider this a very good Imperial Stout, but only a so so Coffee Imperial Stout. I just need more coffee to it, to call it that. The rating on this one is tough on the Beer Taster, but I can’t deny the fact that this is an exceptional Imperial Stout.

Cheers!
