Keg at Gainsbar, Kortrijk, and listed as Boogoop II. Hazy red-brown with a fine off-white head, dank hoppy nose, dry and hoppy with a vegetal note, a little wood coming through, an underlying sweetness, and an acrid-bitter finish. Weirdly enjoyable.

UPDATED: MAR 3, 2012 Thanks Tyler! Pour out of bottle is dark reddish orange pour with white head, nice lacing on it. Aroma has notes of caramel, some toffee, hints of biscuit, pine and grass notes. Taste is a mix of biscuity caramel with some slight grass, pine, touch of earth, finishes fairly dry. Pretty nice!

Nicely done and bitter barleywine. Borders on being more of an IIPA, but the mouthfeel is certainly sticky enough to be a barleywine. Aroma is also quite candied. Nice nice beer.
