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.

Bov (9552) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - DEC 28, 2011
from Erzbierschof - cloudy dark brown beer with a modest foam left; aroma of brown sugar, rum and caramel; very sweet and full-bodied; sugary and caramelish aftertaste - interesting yet too sweet for me

durhambeer (2500) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - DEC 27, 2011
On tap at the Thirsty Monk in Asheville. Pours medium to dark clear brown with a slightly reddish tint and a relatively small beige head. Nose is complex sugars, wood, and rum. Some dark fruits and cherry skins. Flattish palate, and the sugars just taste, well, sweet at the end of the day.

sebletitje (6711) - Enghien, BELGIUM - DEC 27, 2011
pint bottle from DeMolen biershop. BB 17/07/2012. Too much sugar kills the sugar, this would have been a great sipper in a 33cl format. Cuivrée, col léger beige allant sur un café au lait. Arôme est sucré voire mélasse, fruits noirs; prune, figue, date, léger malt caramel/grillé. En bouche, aspect belge triple avec un profile bien fruité noir, le sucre est présent et en retrait donnant une touche de cane à sucre qui suit après les gorgées. Carbonnation est à niveau, fini est collant aux lèvres allant sur un sucre caramélisé..

thomat (2065) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - DEC 25, 2011
Dark amber with a small brown head. Sweet and fruity tones. Malt, fruit and sugar. Full body with a long, bitter sweet finish.

suprchunk (2261) - Crestview, Florida, USA - DEC 22, 2011
Rich, deep, mahogany colored pour. Ruby highlights. No head, no lacing. Looks flat, but there is the occasional bubble rising. Smells like caramelized sugar, raisins, malt. Taste is sweet, slight smokiness, sugary. Vanilla. Sweet syrupy mouthfeel, but not to syrupy. Not too bad. I like it, but would like it better if it was colder. Nice winter warmer.

michael-pollack (4960) - King of Prussia, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 17, 2011
500ml Bottle: Aroma of malt, sugar, light dark ripe fruit, light caramel, and raisins. Poured brown/deep copper in color with a medium-sized, creamy, tan head that greatly diminished but lasted throughout as a film on top of the beer, as well as around the edges. Hazy. Slightly sparkling. Flavor is medium sweet. Tastes of malt, sugar, light brown sugar, and candy. Medium body. Average texture. Average carbonation. Malt, sugar, candy finish. 8%ABV is completely hidden throughout.

Cybercat (3342) - Georgia, USA - DEC 16, 2011
Strong, fruity flavor has hints of malt, yeast and horehound, and is quite sweet, maybe a bit too sweet. It pours a clear Coca-cola brown with an average light tan head. Flavor fills the mouth, being almost candy-like, having fruity, horehound, malty and caramel notes - tasty, but a bit sweet for a beer. Smooth, firm-bodied texture has a good amount of fizz. Overall, very drinkable if a bit on the sweet side.

JaBier (4887) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - DEC 16, 2011
Bottle sample at the 12% tasting at Blacklick Wine & Spirits on 12/15/11. Pours hazy brown with a thin tan head. Aroma of sugary caramel, toffee, tobacco, molasses and chocolate. Toffee and caramel flavor with a chocolatey, roasty finish. Very sweet, but unique and enjoyable.

oteyj (2130) - New Hampshire, USA - DEC 6, 2011
Dark garnet pour with a small off white head. Huge dark fruit and bread in the nose lead to a flavor full of raisin, date, molasses, caramel, and fig. Massive sweetness- just too much for me. Thick cloying palate with low carbonation.

GT2 (8467) - San Diego County, California, USA - DEC 6, 2011
Tap at Churchkey. Pours a hazy strawberry to jewel ruby with no head formation. Small ring of beige bubbles. Nose is pool cleaner. Small red twizzlers and starchy red candies. Volatile notes thankfully subside for sweet dark cherries and dark fruits: fruit cake, dates. Taste is nicely sweet. Sort of like Gouden Carolus Christmas with Belgian dark fruits, red licorice, mild spices and noticeable sweet rum booziness. Not bad. Reminds me a lot of Belgian Easter and Christmas beers. Gouden Carolus attenuation level. Not as sweet as I was told to expect. Nice. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
