Mikkeller Beer Geek Brunch Weasel

Mikkeller Beer Geek Brunch Weasel (Calvados Barrel)

User Rating:

Tom: Building blocks for taste recognition. This is what Mikkeller does best. He makes a base beer and then expands on it allowing the drinker to get an interesting look into different flavor profiles. Well, this one is no exception. If you have not read any of my previous Mikkeller Beer Geek Breakfast/Brunch reviews I would […] ... [Read more]

Mikkeller Hop Burn (High)

User Rating:

I stumbled upon this beer at my local liquor store and by the looks of the new label design (Keith Shore) this beer would be a hop bomb in a bottle.  Doing a little research I found out that this is part of a 2 beer series where Mikkel uses a top fermenting ale yeast […] ... [Read more]

Mikkeller Barrel Aged Breakfast Stout

Aging this beer for over a year I would put forth the argument that one should not do so for more than six months.  Oh sure, it is aged in Bourbon barrels, but after all the abv is not “imperial” strength.  If I had aged this any longer I could see it turning soy sauce. […] ... [Read more]

Am I in Bamberg, Germany?  This beer smelled like the beech wood smoked classics from Aecht Schlenkerla.  The smokey aroma rose from the bottle and glass with ease.  Interestingly, the woody notes brought this variation close to that of a Bourbon barrel aged beer.  However, it lacked the alcohol sting and carried a lighter wood […] ...

I will be dead honest…this is a weird beer.  When the cap is on and I read the label it seemed unique.  However, when I took my first sip I could not help but think, “I’m drinking shit!”  Allow me to elaborate.  Back when the Dutch controlled much of the trading in the East Indies, […] ...

Contrary to what some review sites suggest, this is not a Black IPA.  I can see where the flavor might throw someone off, but if you read the label it clearly states that it is an Oatmeal stout brewed with coffee.  It just so happens that Mikkeller decided to increase the hopping on this one […] ...

Brewed with a hearty addition of oats and coffee this beer might be a great way to start the day.  I’ll be honest, living in Illinois there is only one beer that can claim the right to drunk in the morning.  That beer is none other than Founders Breakfast Stout.  If you catch me referring […] ...

User Rating:

Aged for about 8 months in second use Bourbon barrels Mikkeller definitely hit a home run with this one.  I have not had the pleasure of sampling the original Big Bad or Big Worse Barleywine beers in this series so know that I have now point of reference on his crafting this style.  I will say […] ...

It was Christmas Eve when I opened this hop bomb of a beer. The snow was falling, creating a pure white blanket outside my window as afternoon progressed. Being that it was the time for giving I decided to gift myself with a little holiday beer. The decorative paper on its stubby cork and cage […] ... [Read more]
