Mikkeller Beer Hop Breakfast
My buddy Matt brought over a bottle of Mikkeller Beer Hop Breakfast to share amongst some friends. The beer pours a black color with a frothy tan head. The aroma consists of pine and lemon hops, chocolate, molasses, and coffee. The mouth feel is thick and the taste is chocolaty at first with a molasses weight on the tongue. It dries out on the finish with lemon, pine, and spruce. There is a light coffee after taste with lots of dryness. The alcohol content is 7.5% ABV. The Beer Hop Breakfast was so thick and delicious, a perfect beer for the hop lover. It has lots of bitterness built upon thick, sweet, and syrupy body.
