COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
In the beer geek breakfast series Ė the beer that really put Mikkeller on the map, we decided to shake things up by adding a truck load of vanilla to the french press coffee trick, creating a whole new dimension to the beer that are loved by freaks and geeks worldwide. Not only that, we then placed it in bourbon barrels for 8 months for a truly unique beer experience. Itís dark, dangerous, sweet and incredibly tasty as you would expect, but most of all; itís ready to conquer your breakfast table routines. Please note: The label is the same as the regular version. This one comes with a limited edition yellow wax.

ABT_S54 (275) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAY 5, 2015
33cl bottle served in a snifter. Pitch black pour with a dark brown head which is there for the briefest moment. Aroma is massive vanilla and bourbon notes - nothing else gets a look in. I was a little concerned that the bourbon would impart an extra level of vanilla-ness on top of the already (almost) excessive vanilla shake. I neednít have worried. The bourbon barrels seemed to have created a much more harmonious balance and the coffee and chocolate are allowed to shine through more as a result. In short better in every way than the standard vanilla shake but whether the difference is worth 3x the price is very much down to the individual. Personally I would rather have 3x vanilla shakes but if the occasion warrants it this is hard to beat.

Draught @ Mikropolis. Obviously sweet, but in this version a bit too much for my liking. Notes of vanilla, coffee and milk chocolate.

mcberko (9753) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 18, 2015
On tap at Mikkeller & Friends Reykjavik, pours black with a tiny beige / tan head. Nose brings out loads of vanilla, sweet bourbon, and loads of caramelized sweet sugar. Flavour is intense, with intensely sweet loads of vanilla, candied sugar, caramel and decadent bourbon. Desert-like sweetness, but not cloying at all. Phenomenal complexity. Superb.
