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.

erickok (3424) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - MAY 16, 2012
Dark brown body, bubbly beige head. Spices, sugary brioche, toffee, sweet sticky fermented fruit and rum. Mix between a bitter base, cookies and rum barrel. Foamy mouthfeel. Very sweet, but I don’t mind. Very Belgian. But sticky, but more hops than the usual quad. Like. (50cl bottle, reasonably priced)

Draft. Mahogony beer with a cream colored head. Sweet caramel aroma. Sugar and caramel/toffee flavor with light yeast. Medium bodied. Sugar lingers with caramel/toffee. Needed a glass of water after this one - way too sweet.

Derek881 (999) - St. Petersburg, Florida, USA - MAY 8, 2012
I had this beer on draft at Max’s Taphouse in Baltimore, Maryland, served in a snifter glass. The beer had a black color with a dark copper hue, with an average-sized, off-white, bubbly head with average retention, great lacing and medium cling. Its aroma featured raisin, plum, and some other dark fruit, along with toffee and candy, and a touch of earthy grain. The taste was sweet and fruity with notes of raisin, plum, and toffee, along with some sugar and candy, and a subtle, earthy sour-bitter finish. It was a creamy, full, wet beer with average carbonation and livelyness, and a thick, smooth mouthfeel.

50 cl bottle from Ølbutikken. Pours dark brown with rich beige head. Aroma of fuity (raisin), roasted caramel with some yeast. Long taste, quite sweet. Medium to full body, medium finish. Worth a try.

gEUS (1001) - Linden, BELGIUM - MAY 1, 2012
500 ml bottle - pours marroon brown with glazing head and long sugary legs. Aroma of nuts, honey, iron, slight clove. Medium body with a lot of sweetness, some sharpness as well but a rather bland taste - I miss the excitement...

Enjoyed on tap as 1 oz sampler before my friends showed up at Bad Apple in Chicago, IL. Appearance like cola, huge bubbly tan head, cloudy coke like brown. Aroma mostly of sugar, light fruit, definitely has that burnt sugar smell. Taste is very interesting, extremely sweet, retains a fruit like quality that is tropical, there is a caramel like quality to it, but it doesn’t taste especially malty. The name of the beer describes the flavor pretty well. Impressive.
