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.

UPDATED: APR 2, 2014 Bottle: Thanks, Mark! Completely black oil, super thick looking with nearly no head, only a modest, thin, tan ring after an aggressive pour. Aroma is insane... Holy shit... Thick brown sugar, chocolate brownie batter topped with huge, sweet vanilla drizzle, notes of coffee cake, fudge-y morsels, burnt toffee, oatmeal cookies, maple syrup, & a super-smooth undercurrent of mild bourbon & wood. I could smell this for days. Taste is a total dessert beer... Vanilla frosted chocolate cake, more notes of oatmeal cookies with a dense, sweet coffee bean finish. Cocoa nibs, sticky maple, marshmallow fluff, extremely smooth/tame bourbon & light tannins, & just a kiss of dark fruit in the finish. Sticky mouth coating aftertaste, lingering notes of toffee, brown sugar, creamy coffee, vanilla... I could go on for days. Lovely mouth feel; oily, smooth, low carbonation, slightly sticky. This was one expensive bottle, but in my opinion, very worth it. Wonderfully complex, perfect sweetness without ever being cumbersome... Incredible beer.

Amazingly intense vanilla and coconut aroma. Chocolate and coffee, so very sweet and pleasantly full that it feels like a perfect dessert

2016 bottle. Chocolate pralines, tons of vanilla, bourbon notes and unfortunately some alcohol (not bad but still). A bit of coffee. Sweet. An unusual milk shake texture. Tasty.

Gęste aż do przesady, mega wyklejające, słodkie. Burbon nie dominuje, ale fajnie go czuć. No co tu dużo mówić, zajebiste.

Czarne, nieprzejrzyste. Piana brązowa, drobna, średnio-obfita, redukuje się do zera w niedługim czasie. W zapachu potężna dawka wanilii, obok migdały, kokos, kakao, czekolada, beczka. W smaku znowu bardzo dużo wanilii, oprócz niej kakao, czekolada, migdały, wyraźne bourbonowe nuty, alkohol ukryty, występuje pod typowo broubonową postacią, bardzo przyjemny. Wysycenie niskie, goryczka niska, posmak waniliowy, bourbonowy, trochę czekoladowy.

You can feel the beautiful marzipan smell right after opening the bottle, you don’t even have to get your nose close to it. The aroma gets more intense after it’s poured to the glass. It’s very sweet - barrel notes, vanilla, marzipan, chocolate. The taste is as great - chocolate liqueur, again vanilla and marzipan, some wood. The finish is coffee, nice biterness and some alcohol pleasantly warming as it goes down the throat. The mouthfeel is fantastic, the body is full, carbonation is low and the beer is very velvety on the palate. Wow, this imperial stout is a huge bourbon-barrel bomb.

Lots of vanilla, chocolate, bourbon and coffee in nose. Pours pitch black with tan head. Taste is sweet with huge vanilla, some coconut, chocolate, coffee, some alcohol. Medium bitter finish, full body, soft carbonation. Overall very good dessert stout.

Pours pitch black, small bubbly foam. Vanilla. With warming, more intense. Cocoa, chocolate, some fruits, coconut, bourbon. Perfect balance between roasty bitterness snd sweetness. Full body, oily, good, soft carbonation.

Co tu się dzieje - wanilia, kokos, migdały, mleczna czekolada, gęste, słodkie, po prostu rozwala na łopatki.

Piękny aromat, głównie kojarzący się z lodami czekoladowo-waniliowymi. W smaku dużo kokosa, kakao i wanilii. Słodkie, zero alkoholu. Na początku gdy było chłodniejsze były to lody, później wraz z ogrzaniem piwo zrobiło się ciasteczkiem. Zdecydowanie jest to piwo idące w jedną stronę #teamsłodyczka, ale jest w tym absolutnie świetne i daje mnóstwo przyjemnych doznań.

Piwo czarne, oleiste. Z mozołem budująca się piana. W aromacie oczywiście vanilia, budyń, mascarpone, krem brulee, proszek do pieczenia. Gęste i treściwe. Gładkie, kremowe. Czekoladowe. Wszystko gra. Na finiszu delikatna goryczka i alkohol.
