On tap at Haand Festival. Unclear body, dark amber in color and with a two-finger off-white head. The aroma is vinous, with alcohol, figs and raisins and some vinegar notes. The flavor has a decent bitterness, vinous alcohol and dark dried fruits. Bitter, lighlty sweetish finish. Full-bodied, dryish and with a nice carbonation level. Vinous, lasting finish. A quite pleasant one, showing how well barrel ageing can be done. 130525

Barrelbelly (723) - BELGIUM - APR 28, 2013
Thick, almost sirup like with a medium head. The aroma and taste are very sweet. The high alcohol comes through a lot in the aftertaste. A bit too sweet for me.

thewolf (11652) - Kolding, DENMARK - MAY 7, 2013
Tap @ ZBF 2013.
Pours clear nice amber with a small, bubbly, off-white film head. Aroma has caramel malts, light toasted, oak, grapes and alcohol. Low carbonation, light dry and quite oily mouthfeel. Flavour is sticky sweet, grapes, vinious, toasted. A bit too sweet and strong to really excel.
