Shared 375 ml green bottle, thanks to our beerpal Ole Anders. Brown colour, moderate off-white head. Lovely aroma of Muscatel grapes and oak cask. Warming mouthfeel. The flavour is very oaky and medium sweet, distinct notes of Muscatel grapes, and it is all balanced by decent hops. A very fine beer!

mcberko (6297) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 8, 2013
On tap at Mikkeller & Friends, pours a cloudy deep dark mahogany with a small beige head. Aroma of nail polish, barrels, caramel and candied sugar. Flavour brings out deep dark fruits, caramel and bourbon barrels. The barrels aren’t too dominant, with a medium sweetness, and moderate caramel character. Well-balanced, with a good amount of barrel notes. Great stuff - superior to the original.
