Mikkeller “Beer Geek” Vanilla Shake Oatmeal Stout brewed with coffee and vanilla. Beer geek is spot on and Mikkeller Brewing from Denmark are super beer geeks! In 2006 Mikkel was a math and physics teacher that started experimenting with hops, malt and yeast back home in his kitchen in Copenhagen. Today Mikkel Borg Bjergsø exports his micro brewed beer to 40 different countries and is internationally acclaimed as one of the most innovative and cutting edge brewers in the world.
This stout is a killer! If it’s got @sheltonbrothers adding it to their stable you know you are in for a treat and thanks very much to Adam from @platinum_liquor for donating this bottle to further my beermeducation! Pours a deep dark black with a caramel frothy head. Strong nose of vanilla bean and roasted coffee with some nice roasty malts. Slight woody chocolate after taste with quite a full body and mouthfeel. Not for the faint hearted at 13% this imperial style stout will destroy a fragile palate! Awesome, gotta get one of these for Trent….
