In the beer geek breakfast series – 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. It’s dark, dangerous, sweet and incredibly tasty as you would expect, but most of all; it’s 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.

UPDATED: OCT 12, 2018 Fra flaske. Mørkebrun, tawny, næsten sort med spredt skumkrone. Indbydende og kompleks aroma af vanilje, bourbon, fad, kaffe, malt, mørk chokolade, kokus. Smager af vanilje, kaffe, chokolade. Lav karbonering, olieret mundfølelse. Den smager sødt, uden at det på nogen måde bliver for meget. Eftersmagen er smooth og bliver hængende lang tid i munden. Velafbalanceret til perfektion. The hype is real!

Bottle from mikkeller SD. Pours jet black. Aroma and flavor are huge vanilla and chocolate, soft coffee roast, some earthiness, caramel, light oak, some booze, and a nice touch of dark chocolate bitterness. Full body.

Black color, minimal brown head. Sweet aromas of vanilla, caramel sauce, chocolate, marshmallows, bourbon, alcohol, sweet licorice and fudge. Sweet taste with vanilla, alcohol, chocolate, caramel sauce, bourbon, cocoa powder, cookie dough and toffee. Well balanced taste. Awesome!

Bottle from the brewery. Pours very dark brown with almost no head. Tastes like sweet vanilla, smooth bourbon, cookie malt, syrup, and wood with very faint ash. Medium body and low carbonation. Smells like smooth bourbon, vanilla, cookie, and woody malt.

Intensywna wanilią z czekoladową otoczką. Nuty drewna i spora słodycz. Ciało to konkretny ulep. Mocne

A big thanks to northopfrye for bringing back from Thailand for me. Pours black with little to no head. Vanilla bomb. Massive sweet and floral vanilla. But strong black coffee, dark malts and cocoa balance out the sweetness. World class stuff

Bottle shared with cards04 and dreamflower. Purchased at Mikkeller Bangkok. Dark body, off-white head, not much lacing. Pleasant aroma of vanilla, cocoa, roasted malts. Taste is rich, sweet, vanilla, bourbon, but not cloyingly sweet. Really nice beer!

330 ml bottle at Werckmeisters place, bottled 5.9.2016, shared by Werckmeister, many thanks! Pours mahogany with hardly any tan colored head. The aroma is full of bourbon along with nuts and lots of vanilla, caramel, chocolate and toffee - really nice smell. Medium-full to full body with a medium to medium-heavy sweetness and a light to medium bitterness - well balanced. The flavor is similar to the smell with sweetish roasted malt and nice bourbon notes together with toffee, nuts, chocolate and molasses. Overall lots of decent, sweet, roasted malt in balance with lovely notes of bourbon but maybe a tad to sweet. Still very good!

isabeer (1) - napoli, ITALY - JUN 9, 2018 does not count
di colore scuro, si avvertono sentori tostati di cacao, caffe e tabacco motlo ben bilaciati e che avvolgono in maniera suadente il palato grazie anche ad una piacevolissima nota dolce chocolate, coffee, black, creamy,
