Mikkeller Beer Geek Bacon

As the whole issue of Belgian beer became a bit too controversial over the weekend, Bob and I decided to choose a Danish Mikkeller for our trans-Atlantic tasting last night.

Called "Rauch Geek Breakfast" in the US and "Beer Geek Bacon" here in the EU, this is another tasty treat from the world's favourite "gypsy brewer". It is, as you might expect, a lot like Mikkeller Beer Geek Breakfast with a bit of smokiness added, though no where near something like Aecht Schlenkerla Rauchbier.

Beer Geek Bacon offers up dark chocolate and espresso in a thick oozy concoction the viscosity of motor oil. Just gorgeous.

We made a short podcast about the experience, which you can listen to below...
