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.

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.

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.

callmemickey (3037) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 29, 2011
UPDATED: JUN 9, 2012 A: Dark pure-brown body. Just the faintest bit of light khaki colored foam. No lacing. S: Tons of caramel, brown sugar, a pinch of molasses and rum-like fruit sweetness. T: Like the nose, this is one healthy blast of sugary sweetness. Surprisingly, despite the clear abundance of residual sugars, I didn’t find it to be cloying at all. There is a nice cane-rum like flavor that brings some M: Given the sweetness, the medium body, gentle carbonation and smooth finish, helped keep any cloying vibe away. Impressive. O: A robust assault, but ultimately lacking the depth and complexity to be a mainstay.
