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.

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...

andyhwcinc (1657) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 29, 2012
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.

Rune (9344) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JAN 25, 2012
200ml from tap at Schouskjelleren. Mahogany coloured body, spotty lacing from a filmy layer. Malt-fruity aroma. Taste a bit like sweet jam with its malt-fruity flavour added by ripe banana and spices. Bittersweet, dried fruits to the ending. Medium bodied and pleasant (Oslo, 23.01.2012).
