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.

tectactoe (3125) - Michigan, USA - MAR 24, 2014
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.

Flaska bishops rebro. Svart vtska. St djup doft. Chokladss, kola, fat, knck, vanilj och bourbon. Samma o smak men med en aning mer bitter och rostad smak. Fortfarande stsliskig och rund i smaken. Flytande godis

PhillyCraft (6451) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 2, 2017
Bottle shared with brahs, care of Jim. Pours a dark brown shade with small sized head. Nose and flavor of campfire marshmallow, vanilla bean, fudge, coffee, and some more lucky charm style marshmallows. Medium to fuller mouth, not overly sticky/viscous. Warming in belly but not overly hot in the profile. Very well done for a sweet imperial stout.

zimbo (923) - SCOTLAND - JAN 1, 2017
The marriage between the barrel and the beer is just stupendous.The essence and flavour of the base beer cannot be trounced by the barrel but they mesh perfectly to create sonething new without either losing what they brong to the brew. Not much head but full but not stipidly big but strong and balanced umong all that potential weight. Better than BCBS IMHO.

Plovmand (7977) - Helsinge, DENMARK - DEC 31, 2016
Bottle. It pours jet black with a creamy beige head. Loads of vanilla and bourbon in the aroma with sweet candy notes. The flavor is big roasted and chocolate with loads of vanilla and sweet malts. This is sweet but the bourbon makes this incredible!

A Vanilla Shake emlkei elevenen lnek bennem, s mivel az alap verzi az egyik legjobb sr volt, amit ittam, szinte el sem mertem kpzelni, mire szmtsak az ital bourbon hordban trtnő rlelst kvetően. A palack felnyitst kvetően aztn mg kevesebb eslyem maradt arra, hogy valamifle egzakt kpet alkossak erről a főzetről, ezt ugyanis objektven nemigen llt mdomban megtenni, mivel mr az aromk fzisa is tlmutatott mindenen, ami a tapasztalatok alapjn felmrhető lett volna: a szavak itt kevsnek bizonyulnak. A vanlia sz nem kpezi le ugyanis tkletesen az lmnyt, amit az illatok nyjtanak, mg akkor sem, ha egy tejsznes, Kinder csokolds, kkuszos, kekszes, fehrcsokis masszra csepegtetett bourbon vanlia-esszencirl beszlnk. A szerkezet aztn tkletes terept adja az aromk megelevenedsnek, stemnyes vanliakrm, tejcsokold, sznescukorks fnkok vattacukros, parfms zamata tlti be sznknak minden lehetsges szeglett; lerhatatlanul brsonyos, aroms alkoholkltemny. Elkpzelni sem lehetne zletesebb italt, melyet whisky cskolt homlokon, s ezltal a mennyekbe emelkedett.

Zer0 (1211) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - DEC 21, 2016
Bottle @ home. Pours pitch black with a dark brown head. Aroma is massive vanilla. Smells like milk chocolate covered in bourbon, good start! Taste is very sweet. More vanilla comes through. Almost like chocolate milk. Rather dense and thick. Pretty much diabetes but in this case I dont mind.
