Xavalias (216) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - AUG 15, 2014
Bottle from Magasin du Nord, DK. Pours cloudy dark orange-brown with creamy beige to yellow head, medium persistence, good lacing. Nose of dark fruits, sweet grapes. Complex, intense aroma of ripe and dried fruits, plums, strong caramel, grapes, vanilla, muscatel, toffee, alcohol. Taste is very sweet, medium to low bitter, well rounded. Full bodied, smooth, syrupy palate, creamy texture. Very long sweet, moscatel and caramel finish. Absolutely fantastic!

HerrKrinkle (11) - Montreux, SWITZERLAND - DEC 15, 2013
Without a doubt one of the best barley wines I’ve ever tasted. Incredibly well-balanced. The Muscatel aging was very clever as it helped balance the cereal flavors and ABV and bring out the sweetness. Beautiful brew.

jesperhammer (3315) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - FEB 16, 2013
UPDATED: FEB 17, 2013 16-FEB-2013, bottle @home, from Ølbutikken. Hazy amber with very nic, creamy, lacing tan head. Fruity malty aroma with a sweet dessert wine-like note. Taste the same. The muscatel stronger here. Very vinous. Some vinegar-like stuff - perhaps even glue. Very sweet, sticky. Very delicious. Creamy, sweet, soft carbonation. Touch of hoppy bitterness. Lovely.

Sigmund (5554) - 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!

rodenbach99 (3461) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 26, 2013
Bouteille de 375ml M.H.T. 20/11/22. Bière ambrée foncée, trouble avec des particules en suspension. La mousse est généreuse abondante et collante. Le nez est agréable, invitant, fruité, vineux avec des cerises. La bouche est surprenante, puissante, longue en bouche, sucrée mais pas trop, vineuse, surette sur les fruits rouges fermentés, une finale sur l’alcool. La texture est crémeuse. Très bonne bière avec une plus value que le barril de muscat. Le boisé ne prend pas le dessus. Une réussite.

domienS (201) - Oostakker, BELGIUM - SEP 25, 2014
Dark amber beer without saturation and light beige foam. Smells a lot like caramel malts. Tastes sweet and lightly malt bitter. Mouth feel is alcohol warming. Leaves a long malt bitter aftertaste. Nice sampling beer to enjoy slowly.
