Mikkeller Brewing San Diego
A Note on This Beer
When Mikkeller Brewing decides to brew up new renditions of their BA Beer Geek series, craft fans go absolutely bonkers. These Imperial Stouts consistently hold 4+ ratings on Tavour, BeerAdvocate, and Untappd!
Those lucky enough to have snagged a bottle of Mikkeller’s newest Bourbon Barrel-Aged release, BA Beer Geek: Toasties Shake, are already gushing:
- “Absolutely fantastic. Tastes like...a liquid Samoa cookie. Sweet, coconut and chocolate.” @Daniel
- “Perfect coconut stout for a cool evening.” @Scott S.
- “I’ll drink this all day everyday!” @Ashton K.
Each opulently thick sip of Toasties has a rich, chocolatey backbone, and huge, warming hits of sweet vanilla beans, toasted coconut, and marshmallows. Mikkeller aged the brew in Bourbon Barrels for silky smooth balance and a warm boozy finish.
Drinking Toasties feels like wrapping yourself in a big, cozy blanket on a cold, winter’s night. Plus, if the flavors aren’t enough, Toasties offers a boozy 13.5% ABV for an extra dose of good cheer!
‘Tis the season to try this best-in-class bourbon-aged Imperial Stout — this stash of Beer Geek Shakes won’t last until spring!
*Mikkeller won “Danish Brewery of the Year” when they opened in 2006, and again in 2008!

Holy cow. One of my favorite beers of the month. Sweet but not cloying. Good barrel.
Vanilla and coconut for days!
This is a perfect beer I loved it
Probably the best.
Coconuty deliciousness! Loads of coconut and vanilla intertwine with the bourbon barrel wood. Smooth and rich with a lingering alcohol burn on the finish. Mikkeller San Diego’s barrel program does not disappoint.
Tastes like a liquid mounds bar. Amazing!
Big, bold and smooth! Well balanced.
A bit too sweet for my liking
Don’t know how to delete the rating. But I never got a chance to try this bad boy (apparently it was damaged on delivery). Just messing with the app. Sorry.
Fantastic rich marshmallowy coconut goodness. If I every see this again, I am for sure picking it up
Best of the bunch
I didn't get as much coconut as I was hoping.
Surprised at how amazing this was. Top tier BA stout
Love me a lactose-free dessert stout like this. Prominent chocolate with layers of coconut and vanilla balanced against the bourbon.
A fabulous, smooth flavor. It is rich with a great depth. Sign me up for next year’s!!
Flavor there but very thin and doesn’t stay on palate
Another great mikkeler stout. I will always pick up their stouts when they come out now.
Bourbon, coconut, etc are there but it is way to overwhelmingly sweet
This beer pours like syrup and is basically desert in a bottle!
Loads of vanilla with some Bourbon backbone. I was hoping for more prominent coconut, but still an excellent beer!
Silky smooth but the high amount of sugar dominates the bourbon taste.
Barrel and vanilla, smooth and fairly rich mouthfeel. Unfortunately light on the coconut.
Delicious brew on a chilly northeastern winter
Toasted coconut distinctively has a different flavor and this gets very close. The vanilla and bourbon help enhance it as well.
