Mikkeller Vik. Orange waxed bottle with a black and white ’Muerte’ sticker on the cap and clearly printed Moscatel on the side. Apparently a cock up and this Is Bourbon Muerte. Three Floyds tap takeover. Bottle share with loadsa Ratebeerians! Opaque black - brown beer, small pale tan head. Palate is surprisingly light. Mild fine carbonation. Sweet dark malts, a fruity vibe on top. The chilli starts to itch but it’s not overwhelming and provides a nice counterpoint to the sweet dark malts. Light finish. Sweet heat!

Travlr (21653) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - MAR 31, 2012
Bottle 23/165 courtesy of noodleuser, thanks! Dark hazy brown color, no head to speak of. Aroma of port wine, booze, plums, vanilla. Taste is vanilla, port soda, chocolate covered brandied cherries. Nice esophageal warming feeling that slowly expands through the thorax in an anterior to posterior direction. I approve.

Ferris (12892) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 12, 2014
Bottle - Vintage 2013 - Molasses, chilli peppers and dark roast coffee. Jet black with almost no head. Sweet barrel notes, sticky sweet and a nice flavourful chilli that adds heat on the throat. Too big and bold, no balance just a ton of flavor.
