37,5 cl från boxbeer. En helt okej öl som smakar en hel del. Men jag hade förhoppningar på mer och bättre.

likeatrainwreck (521) - Stockport, Cheshire, ENGLAND - FEB 4, 2016
Pours black with a tan head. Roasted and sweet, thick and sticky. Some funk from the wood, and a dry, vinous finish from the muscatel. Nice, but I can’t help thinking it would have been better aged in a bourbon or rum barrel... not sure the tannin notes compliment the beer that well.

neongolden (1332) - Linköping, Sweden/Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 16, 2015
(375ml bottle @ VilleValla Pub, Linköping, Dec 15 2015) Pours brown-black with a fine whitish head that lasts with a bit of lace. Aroma has lots of the sweet vinous raisinated grape, dried fruit and light oxidation notes from the barrel on top of a dusty, almost mineral dry roast body with a little chocolate. Flavour has the muscatel barrel fruity notes supported by a touch of lactose on top of dry, hard-roasted malts giving an earthy note to complement semisweet chocolate. Finish has a slightly nutty roast with chocolate hints, a light bitterness with some slightly tannic wood. Medium mouthfeel, slightly creamy, soft carbonation. I got a fair amount of the barrel here and the character is nice, but the stout body underneath didn’t seem to be adding much to it. Maybe the lower ABV didn’t stand up to the ageing so well.
