COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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. Its dark, dangerous, sweet and incredibly tasty as you would expect, but most of all; its 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.

Piwo w kolorze czarnym nalewa sie z minimalna iloscia sredniopecherzykowej piany ktora znika bez sladu. W aromacie wanilia, slodka czekolada i palona kawa. Wszystko bardzo intensywne i zapowiada sie rownie ciekawie w smaku. Bardze geste , pelne i zaklejajace cialo, sredniwysoka goryczka i wysycenie na niskim poziomie. Sa zdecydowanie nuty bourbonu, wanili i beczki. Mix czekolady, kokosa i miodu. Slodkie z lekko palonym finiszem. Jest naprawde mega dobrze!

I love the strong aroma and the taste. The only thing that could be improved that there is not a really strong taste or smell of bourbon.

Aroma: vanilla, caramel, alcohol and fruity (plum), taste follows the aroma, thick vanilla, creamy body, long aftertaste with appropriate bitter-sweetness. Only thing is that bourbon quality could be better, it feels like brandy, and alcohol in the aftertaste, but this might be not too bad either

DonGregorio (267) - POLAND - MAR 29, 2017
Bottle shared at tasting. Clear dark brown colour, tan head. Aroma of vanilla, bourbon, coconut, milk chocolate, fudge. Taste is medium to heavy sweet, light bitter: intense vanilla, coffee, cocoa, chocolate, coconut - great balance. Full body, oily, smooth texture, soft carbonation. Magnificent dessert imp - sweet, but not over the top, with very rich aroma and taste, high drinkability, perfectly hidden alcohol.

maneliquor (3514) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - MAR 24, 2017
Bottle at Jezs Bday. If I could give a beer an 11/10 for its aroma then this would have it. Fucking unreal. Its like bourbon-laden sweet honeycomb. Makes me salivate to no ends. The only slight downfall I have to this beer is I wanted the mouth feel to be a little fuller. Such a marginal dissatisfaction though. Seriously sensational beer, especially for the price

marcus (9960) - Sacramento, California, USA - MAR 19, 2017
Bottle shared by oRos. Pours dark brown with a modest tan head and a complex aroma that includes chocolate, vanilla, coffee and bourbon. There is a full-bodied dark molasses flavor with a bit of vanilla and a coffee finish. This is a great brew.

Piwo bardzo ciemne, nieprzejrzyste, praktycznie zerowa piana. W zapachu nozdrza atakuje kokos i wanilia, następnie pralinki, mleczna czekolada, delikatne wafelki i subtelny alkohol. Aromat znacznie przyjemniejszy niż w wersji podstawowej. W smaku rwnież kokos i wanilia, mleczna czekolada, kawa, przyjemny alkohol. Wersja BA jest mniej gęsta i wyklejająca, alkohol mniej zaznacza swoją obecność. Zdecydowanie team słodyczka. Super piwo.

330 ml bottle. The beer is black with a very small light brown head. The aroma is a nice mix of barrel, vanilla, coffee and chocolatey stout. Its not dominated by vanilla like the non-ba version. The bourbon barrel reins the flavors in without dominating itself. The flavors all kinda harmonize. Taste is sweet and still pushes hard on that vanilla pedal. Big marshmallow flavor around a fudgey chocolate center, drizzled with bourbon caramel syrup. Soft, full body. The barrely finish pulls back on that sugar without thinning the beer out. Mikkeller does wonderful work with barrels. This is a fantastic beer and deserves heaps of praise.
