Bottle from Dranken Geers, Oostakker, Nr Gent June 2013 consumed at home in company of Casey & Traci 06.07.13 Pours black with dark brown head, looks good. The nose is a good combination of vanilla and coffee with a goodly dollop of cream and chocolate or milky, creamy chocolate to be more precise. Whilst I like this beer and whilst I like the vanilla, maybe the vanilla is deployed just a little too heavily here, nice but a little overkill. I think the strength is very well masked I really didn’t believe it was that strong. Good beer, very good in fact, smooth, indulgent and really tasty, just not quite great. A8 A4 T7 P4 Ov15 3.8

Barwa czarna, nieprzejrzysta. Piana niezbyt obfita, drobnopęcherzykowa, trwała, zostawia ładny lacing. Bardzo intensywny, piękny aromat kawy, gorzkiej czekolady, wanilii, alkoholu nie czuć. W smaku jest bardzo pełne, intensywne, oleiste, dominują nuty kawowe i waniliowe, jest też kakao i nuta alkoholowa, likierowa, bardzo szlachetna. Goryczka średnia, nieco alkoholowa, wysycenie niskie, w ustach zostają długie posmaki, głównie waniliowe. Świetny imperialny stout.

UPDATED: MAY 29, 2016 Bottle, thanks @vestergaard. Pours a pitch black with a nutty brown head. Unbelievably beautiful. Intense aromas of vanilla and milk chocolate. A bit of roasted malts and hops in there as well. Taste of roasted malts and hops, with a lively sweetness. Has a lot of vanilla and a milk cocoa, with some roasted coffee in the end. A full-bodied beer, with low carbornation. Really well-balanced.

At 13%, Beer Geek Vanilla Shake isn’t a breakfast for lightweights. It’s not exactly a hedonist’s idea of beer either. Yes, there is vanilla in this Imperial Stout but it won’t be confused for a sweet Stout. Mikkeller hits a balance between oatmeal, coffee, and vanilla. The result is velvety smooth, rich, roasted, and boozy brew. Vanilla comes in a toasted and spicy form. It works with the oatmeal creaminess and booze sugar without seeming like too much of a dessert beer. The coffee works similarly. You get the bold fresh-roasted notes, but not so much that it overwhelms the oatmeal. Balance is the key to this brew. And breakfast, after all, according to the advertisers, is supposed to be balanced.

Very complex aroma, starting off with vanilla, bringing the bitterness of the coffee in as an after taste.

Pours black with a big frothy head. Aroma is packed with coffee and vanilla. Flavour is sweet with lots of coffee. There’s some roasted malts and a hint of chocolate in there too. A big stout with a massive flavour. Outstanding!

Bottle.Expected a lot from this one and I wasn’t disappointed. Black and poured with a big head. Lovely vanilla flavours with coffee in background. Smooth and creamy flavour and actually exceeded expectations. My strongest for some time.

Bue en bouteille de 33cl à la brasserie, Couleur noire, pas de mousse et très peu d’effervescence. Nez sur le café et la vanille. En bouche attaque très ronde, puis continuité sur le café, le chocolat, le cappucino et fin de bouche énorme sur la vanille.
