Notes/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.

Brewed at Lervig in Norway.

Served alongside the standard version.

Pitch black body with a small beige head. The aroma brings everything along from the standard version with the addition of oak and a delectable bourbon scent. Rich and thick. Palate coating. vanilla, chocolate, coffee all balanced elegantly with an out front bourbon presence. Dangerously easy to drink for a 13% abv brew. While Vanilla Shake was tasty, the BA Vanilla Shake is superb.

Pitch black with a little brown head served in a little Mikkeller glass. Tons of brown film while swirling. Looks imposing and delicious.

Tons of vanilla, chocolate, and bourbon barrel in general. Wow.

Super smooth and creamy. Lots of rich chocolate and vanilla flavor and sweetness. It's almost like dunking a chocolate chip cookie in some bourbon. Slight warmth from the spirit. Some slight roast/coffee. Totally dominated with chocolate and vanilla flavor. Wow.

I loved this thing and need more.
