COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
English: This is a true story about a dedicated belgian brother who spent all his hard earned money on a all inclusive Barbados vacation to pursue a life long dream – brew an old fashion dark Belgian infused with local muscovado sugar aka Barbados sugar – luckily the outcome is a first class candy coated, full-bodied and escapist beer – the best he ever made. Halleluja.

Dfonorow (1419) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 17, 2011
Pour is dark brown with some red highlights and a thin off-white head. Aroma is huge brown sugar, candied sugar, hazelnut, and a pinch of Belgian yeast. Flavor is quite cloying, but for some reason it works (maybe because of the name?). Heavy brown sugar, some dried fruit, and a finish of yeast and alcohol. Medium bodied.

Maverick34 (2217) - New York, USA - OCT 16, 2011
Draught. Man I don’t even know what to say about this. Poured dark, raisin rum aroma, same taste with molasses etc. Good but maybe too syrupy.

caesar (5059) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - OCT 13, 2011
Bottled @ home. Clear reddish brown color, short head. Aroma of rich sugar, some ripe fruit, caramel malts, raisin. Only slight spicy from the yeast. Taste is quite sweet, bit dry, slight nutty. The belgian yeast is obvious, but not overwhelming and lets the sugary notes shine, the way they probably intended to be. Carbonation is quite low for a belgian style, which is perfect for me, coz usually they blow up in your stomach. Despite the sticky tooth, reasonably easy drinkable that way. Im not a fan of pretty sweet beers, but Im enjoying this one!

Papsoe (25088) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - OCT 13, 2011
Botte 50 cl. Courtesy of Meilby. Pours a hazy amber with a small off-white head. Sweet aroma of caramel, overripe fruit and Belgian yeast. Solid body, carbonation is a little low, brown sugars, overripe plummy fruit and a subtle yeastiness. Warming alcohol in the finish. Very pleasant Belgian style ale - almost a mini-Quad. 131011
