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.

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.
