27/IV/13 - on tap @ Zythos Bierfestival (2013-415) Thanks to the Belgian ratebeer crew for sharing our beers today!

Clear amber beer, creamy light beige head, pretty stable, adhesive, leaving a nice lacing in the glass. Aroma: pretty sweet, caramel, alcohol, bit boozy, overripe banana and plums, raisins. MF: soft carbon, full body, creamy smooth texture. Taste: some caramel, ripe banana, bitter, nutty, bit sweet, dried figs, little citrus. Aftertaste: bitter, lots of ripe banana, little sugary, sweet, hoppy bitter touch. Really like this one!

Barrelbelly (647) - BELGIUM - APR 28, 2013
Dark golden with medium head. Taste of malts and yeast and an aftertaste of wood. Quite different aftertaste with these monbazillac barrels than the bourbon or regular version. This gives a more sweet and round finish that fits very well with this beer.
