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.

magdalar (516) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - NOV 29, 2011
50cl bottle. Pours a dark brown, with a off-white head. Smells of brown sugar, caramel, and toffee -- super sweet. Tastes not nearly as sweet as I’d expect from the nose; sweet dried red berries, caramel, and a mild bitterness. Body is medium; texture is oily; carbonation is medium; finishes dry. Pretty well balanced, and quite tasty.

laiti (7742) - Helsinki, FINLAND - NOV 26, 2011
50 cl bottle @ home, BBE 2015 on the label and xx.07.2012 on the neck
Aroma is sugary with syrup, spices, candi sugar, floury caramel and hints of roastiness. Also something German-like, maybe hops? Flavour is, surprisingly, rather sweet with brown and cane sugar. Also some belgian yeast, toffee and caramel. Something plastic-like occurs at the end of the glass. The sweetness doesn’t disturb as much as I expected. However, drinking the whole bottle by myself would be a mission impossible.

lusikka (7621) - Tampere, FINLAND - NOV 26, 2011
500 ml bottle.
Pours a dark amber colour with a thick, white head. Aroma of smooth brown sugar, slightly toasted malts and toffee. Very smooth flavour of toasted malts, brown sugar, candi sugar, toffee, some hops. Full bodied, very smooth mouthfeel and a long, warming, smooth and sweet finish. Overall a very smooth beer with loads of sweetness, but it doesn’t disturb here.

olio (8196) - Tampere, FINLAND - NOV 26, 2011
50 cl bottle. BBE 2015 (the bottle had also some 2012 marking)
Pours dark ruby red colour with small head. Aroma of sweet malts, clove, grass, light caramel and sugar candy. Flavour of caramel, sweet malts, haym nuts, flour, sugar and ripe fruits. Something familiar to german beers on the nose, probably just the sweet malts.

jredmond (6651) - New York, New York, USA - NOV 6, 2011
Draft at The Ginger Man with Andrew. Pours a bright hazy orange with white lacing. Aroma is belgian candy, sweet malts. Mouthfeel is medium with pretty much just nice sweet candied flavor dominating.

GAManiac (1944) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - NOV 3, 2011
500ml bottle. Pours a deep clear copper with a big creamy beige head that recedes slowly to a solid cap. Aroma is very sweet with lots of cane sugar and caramel malts. Plenty of booze soaked fruits, plums and raisins especially. Taste is more of the same though it’s actually a little less sweet than I was expecting. There is lots of cola-like sweetness with cane sugar, various dark fruits and vanilla. There is more of the Belgian yeast coming through which evens the sweetness a bit. Mouthfeel is smooth, creamy and well carbonated. I really thought this was going to be a diabetes-inducing beer given the title and the nose but the taste is more balanced than that. Really solid Belgian dark.

yespr (36878) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - OCT 30, 2011
50 cL bottle. Pours dark brown, hazy, with a small, shortlived tan head. Aroma is roasted caramelish to toffee/breadish malty, light fruity yeasty and sugarish sweet flavorued. Sweet, yet not as bad as expected. Light quad-yeasty profile - like a mix between dark Belgian and Westy12. Smooth malty, yeasty and brown sugarish finish.
