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. 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.

Mariox (443) - Warsaw, POLAND - JAN 27, 2018
UPDATED: FEB 11, 2018 W aromacie praliny, bombonierka, wanilia, migdały, bourbon, dębina, nuty beczkowe są bardzo intensywne. W smaku słodka mleczna czekolada i trochę taki syrop klonowy, goryczka niska, delikatnie kwaśna kawa w tle. Finisz długi, intensywny, w posmaku czuć płynne pralinki i bardzo dużo wanilii, coś niesamowitego. Wysycenie niskie, alkohol dobrze ukryty, ale rozgrzewa lekko w przełyku, bardzo dużo ciała, gęste, oleiste, gładkie, ułożone, intensywne, degustacyjne, ale mógłbym pić cały wieczór 👌

UPDATED: JAN 27, 2018 Barwa czarna, klarowna. W aromacie poklady wanilii, migdalow, bourbonu, pralin, bardzo ulepkowo, syrop klonowy. W smaku praliny, syrop klonowy, wanilia, migdaly, baaaardzo wyklejajaco, lekko kwaskowa kawa, kakao, likierowo, mlecznie. Na finiszu pol na pol arabica z roubusta, migdaly, odrobinka suszonych owocow slodkich. Ogolnie bardzo wyklejajace piwo z bardzo przyzwoicie degustacyjnym cialem, srednio nisko wysycone. Po odgazowaniu kwasowosc zanika do minimum. Bardzo udany, swietny, przyjemny ris.

BlazerT (1350) - Sosnowiec, POLAND - NOV 15, 2017
Aroma na miarę tuzów amerykańskich - przede wszystkim potężna wanilia, przełamana przez palone słody. beczka po bourbonie taka słabawa trochę. Mega słodkie, wyklejające, raczej słodycz stabilna. Ciało pełne, mega pijalne.
