Mikkeller - Beer Geek Flat White
Serving Temperature:48–55° F
Suggested Glassware:Dimpled Mug or Nonic
Beer Geek Flat White is one of the crowdpleasers in this roundup of Mikkeller releases: an incredibly easygoing, creamy, velvety oatmeal stout, brewed with coffee and lactose. This pours a beautifully dark, chocolate-brown color capped by well-formed brown foam. Lots of good retention and lacing, and overall it conjures the feel of a smooth espresso drink. There’s generous roasted malts and baker’s chocolate in the aromatics, highlighting a rich core coffee impact surrounded by plenty of complementary milk, chocolate, and spice.
We’ve had the pleasure of enjoying a number of beers from Mikkeller’s Beer Geek line over the years, and this one hits a similar stride with impressive amounts of coffee complexity and assertive core stout. Smooth, fine-bubbled carbonation contributes to the feeling of a well-made espresso drink: nicely creamy, packed with deep coffee character. This one disappeared from our glasses fast. Loads of dark roast and chocolate throughout. Super-good take on the flat white, and this one satisfies as both a stout and a coffee beer.
Beer Geek Flat White should continue to age smoothly in one’s cellar, but pop earlier for the largest impact of coffee. The creamy espresso core here has us looking to a coffee or vanilla-bean ice cream, or moist chocolate layer cake. Best before March 2027.
