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.

PowY (1550) - AUSTRIA - JUN 29, 2018
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!

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,

butelka/czarne, ładna czapka brązowej piany, która szybko redukuje się do minimalnego krążka. w aromacie wanilia, kokos, potężna mleczna czekolada, kokosanki, rafaello, mega intensywny, uzależniający aromat. w smaku gęste, tłuste, zawiesiste, wyklejające, kokosowe, czekoladowe, słodkie, piękny, czekoladowy finisz, lekko rozgrzewa przełyk. potężne piwo

Tasted from bottle. 2016 version. Pours dark brown with minimal tan head. Vanilla, caramel and bourbon aroma. Huge vanilla flavor along with caramel, coffee, molasses, bourbon. If you like vanilla you’ll like this one. Very well done. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

b2. Wasn't impressed. Lacked the "vanilla bomb" qualities I expected to get. Just didn't live up to the hype for me.

Noform (138) - Tarnowskie Góry, POLAND - FEB 26, 2018
piana bardzo niska co dyskwalifikuje piwo od samego początku.:P A tak poważnie zapach rozpierdala od pierwszego powąchania ze szkła jest wszystko idealnie wkomponowane, rok temu ktoś mówił że wanilia wydaje sie sztuczna. W moim nic takiego sie nie dzieje, sporo czekolady kawy kokosa wszystko skomponowane w piękna całość + ciało nienaganne 4,7/5 najlepszy ris jaki piłem do tej pory
