Sigmund (5181) - Tau, NORWAY - MAY 10, 2013
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 (6708) - 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 arent 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.

laiti (5788) - Helsinki, FINLAND - APR 27, 2013
37,5cl bottle @ wPBF, BBE
Aroma has peppery spices, toffee and some caramel. Flavour has peppery spices, some toffee, caramel and alcohol. No, putting this one in muscatel barrels does not make this a better beer. It just makes this more spicy.
