Review: Mikkeller Beer Hop Breakfast (Bottle)
Not deviating too far from what I expected, Hop Breakfast tastes like Beer Geek Breakfast, but with less chocolate, and more bitter dry hops. The result is lots of dark roast coffee, a relatively thin mouthfeel, and some grainy oats. There’s also a little of that saltwater tang that you’ll find in some traditional English style porters. It may not be the most complex, or full-flavored of the excellent Breakfast series from Mikkeller, but I’m glad I tried it. Whether it’s worth the price on the other hand, is another question all together. Consequently, this will probably be a one and done kind of beer for me, unless I find it on tap somewhere of course.
