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.

Bottle. A clear one, dark brown in color and with a beige head of moderate size. Alcohol, dark sugar, caramel and dried fruit notes on the palate. Quite burning on the tip of the tongue, with lots of sugary sweetness, as well as dried fruits and some licorice-like hints. Full-bodied and sweetish. Lasting warming and sweet finish. Overall, too sweet and alcoholic, yet I have to admin I like it quite well. 110820

lassem (652) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - AUG 4, 2011
50 cl. bottle nicely pulled from the fridge. Pours a nicely kobber brown with a cappochino-liked head that tends to fade a little. The nose is clearly belgian inspired, and closing your eyes you clesarly see the monks filling their bottles down there. Lots of cane sugar, caramels, some cinamon and christmas spices. Finaly there is a faint hint of laqurice. The taste is very sweet - a complex sweetness, with lots of cane sugar and caramels. The palate is smooth and not that lively. Maybe a bit too sweet for my buds, but a bulls eye for my wife. This beer would be perfect to be served with hardcore cheeces. A long sweet and malty finish that stays with you all the way.
