A Note on This Beer
The Beer Geek series put Mikkeller on the map.
And, not just any map — the 2X Danish Brewery of the Year has been named one of the Most Important Breweries from Europe by Food & Wine, and their brews rank among the best in their class on BeerAdvocate!
Like today’s Beer Geek Vanilla Shake, which craft fans gave a world-class 96/100 score.
Let a few sips linger on the tongue to fully grasp all the flavors at play in this massive Imperial Stout. Mikkeller brews it with coffee and vanilla!
Big milk chocolate and silky vanilla greet the palate upfront, followed by deep layers of roasty espresso and caramel. A dose of lactose keeps the brew succulently creamy from start to finish, making that 11% ABV sip down almost too smoothly.
As @Matthew W. on Untappd says, this beer is “Quite unlike anything else - very special.”
Rated 96/100 on BeerAdvocate; 4.19 on Untappd
*Vanilla Shake comes from Mikkeller San Diego, a super brewery formed with the 5X World Beer Cup Gold Medalists at AleSmith!
