BEER INFO

Mikkeller ApS
Denmark
mikkeller.dk

Style: American Double / Imperial Stout

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 13.00%

Availability: Rotating

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.

Tasted from bottle. 2016 version. Pours dark brown with minimal tan head. Vanilla, caramel and bourbon aroma. Huge vanilla flavor along with caramel, coffee, molasses, bourbon. If you like vanilla you’ll like this one. Very well done.

This was the best beer I have ever knock over and spilled onto the floor. The tears did not make it taste better.

Overwhelming vanilla smell and taste - hides the alcohol remarkably well and very smooth. I felt it was a bit thin and more like a porter consistency, but nevertheless it is quite decadent and worth the effort if you are fond of vanilla.

Pink bottle. Dominated by the vanilla, but not too sweet. Barre had all the bourbon flavors but no burn or harshness. Great body. Amazing.
