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.

Ungstrup (29174) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - SEP 19, 2011
Bottled. A dark red beer with a tan head. The aroma has notes of berries, malt, candy sugar, and over ripe fruits. The flavor is very sweet with notes of candy sugar, malt, dried fruits, and a bit of yeast, leading to a dry finish, where the alcohol tickles the tongue lightly.

Opaque black - brown beer, small tan head. Nose of dark malt and sugary bubblegum. Light palate, a little silky. Sweet malt and sweet molasses. Mild lactose and mildly spiced bubblegum. Finishes smooth with minerals. Fresh tasting but a little but much with the malty sweetness. Needs some hop relief.
