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.

gyllenbock (4091) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JUN 18, 2012
Bottle from Ölbutikken. Dark brown with a medium head. This reminded quite a lot of a Brown Ale. Malt, sweet and with some roasted notes. Also nuts, brown sugar and some spices. Not the most balanced of beers but ok.

Bottle @ home. Ruby red to brown volour with a creamy beige head. Smells malts, iron and some syruppy sweetness. Tastes quite sweet, coffee, mocca, dark chocolate, caramel. Very rich flavour. Slightly roasty also, but different than a stout. Also a bit like a quadrupel. Full body, soft carbo.

0.5 l bottle, thanks Timo A! Hazy reddish brown color. Sweet aroma of figs, raisins. Sweet rich flavor with figs, raisins, dark sugar, nuts, toffee and maybe hint of clove, pepper and warming alcohol. Full body, oily palate with low carbonation. Nice dessert sipper.
