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.

The aroma has a lot of sweet malts with raisin and caramel. Dark red-brown coloured beer with an off-white head. The taste is sweet, has sugar, caramel and raisin. Bit one-dimensional.

Palme (3284) - Bergen, NORWAY - SEP 30, 2011
0.5l bottle shared with The Tasting Crew and OleR. Pours a near clear nutty-brown body with a small sidesticking bubbly head. Aroma is really sweet with caramel and heavy ripe banana. Also some hints of pure alcohol. Average carbonation, medium-bodied and it has a sticky and syrupy mouthfeel. Flavor-wise this is really sweet with enormous amounts of banana - a bit to much perhaps? -, some plums and almost no bitterness. Like drinking fermented liquid banana-concentrate topped with caramel, brown sugar and ripe strawberries. Nice warming aftertaste. All that being said, it was not any bad flavors but one glass is enough..

Plovmand (6349) - Helsinge, DENMARK - SEP 22, 2011
Bottle. Thanks to Faroeviking for providing! It pours brown with a creamy off white head. The aroma is yeast, brown sugar, dark fruit and candy. Sweet fruity flavour with notes of spices, yeast, caramel, sweet malt and brown sugar. Long dark fruity finish.

Ungstrup (29217) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - SEP 19, 2011
Bottled. A dark red beer with a tan head. The aroma has notes of berries, malt, candy sugar, and over ripe fruits. The flavor is very sweet with notes of candy sugar, malt, dried fruits, and a bit of yeast, leading to a dry finish, where the alcohol tickles the tongue lightly.

JorisPPattyn (7879) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - SEP 18, 2011
Small amber-brownish head, relatively stable, fed by finely, well-carbonated slightly hazy brownish red beer. Perfumed nose with almonds, marzipan, rosewater and dark brown sugar. Sweet, but less than suggested by nose and label; woody touches, and again almonds. Brown (candi or other) sugar. Bit rum-like flavours, but without the alcoholcomponent. Mineral water quality, relatively light body ~ to the ABV, well-attenuated & well carbonated. Not too sweet, thankfully. But not much else - the carbonation seems to bear most of the balance.

thewolf (11149) - Kolding, DENMARK - SEP 18, 2011
Bottle, bought @ Høkeren, Cph.
Very dark mahogany red-brown with a small, light fizzy, creamy, beige head. Aroma is complex sugary, molasses, liqourice, Belgian sugar, cane sugar, light toasted caramel. Mild plums and raisins. High carbonation, fine fairly light and mild creamy palate. Flavour is sweet, sugary, cane-sugar, again some toasted caramel working its way into liqourice territory. Mild vinious with some plums and raisins. Short aftertaste. Very simple and sweet, yet still endearing.

Bottle 500ml. @ The Danish Summer Gathering, TFODRBSG11.

Clear dark brown colour with a average, frothy, good - fair lacing, mostly lasting, beige head. Aroma is moderate to heavy malty, caramel, brew mash ! brown sugar - candy, moderate yeasty, phenol - alcohol, yeast, sweet candy yeast. Flavour is heavy sweet and moderate bitter with a long duration, burnt caramel - malt sugar, yeast. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft. IMO to sweet and sugary for me .. [20110820]
