Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: johnsonni on 02-16-2014

This beer is retired; no longer brewed.

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.

Drank this with Mikkel sitting 5 feet from me on the TG patio at their EPIC bottle share. Mikkel brought this as well as BA Brunch Weasel....both were out of this world!! Tons of Burbon but ultra smooth!!! (207 characters)

Poured dark with a nice thick consistency. Smell did not reveal a lot of vanilla to me. At first the taste of the beer resembled Dark Lord but followed with vanilla and minor barrel flavor. Will have again. (206 characters)
