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.

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.

Nightfall (1307) - Hamburg, GERMANY - JAN 3, 2012
Bottle @ Danish Summer Gathering, Ulfborg 2011. Raisin brown color with a tiny head. Very sweet malty aroma, brown sugar, dried fruit, spices. Taste is very sweet, sugary, malty, rasisns, brown sugar. I know the intention was to be that sweet, but it looses a bit on balance, could have been even better. Still nice though

trevor211 (1298) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUL 6, 2012
Bottle at SIBF. Pours a cola brown. Rum and raw sugar on the nose. Boozy sweet flavor, with some wood, a good amount of rum, and dark fruit. It has a bit of a harsh palate, though -- somewhat tinny. This was a bit of a disappointment.

Dfonorow (1206) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 17, 2011
Pour is dark brown with some red highlights and a thin off-white head. Aroma is huge brown sugar, candied sugar, hazelnut, and a pinch of Belgian yeast. Flavor is quite cloying, but for some reason it works (maybe because of the name?). Heavy brown sugar, some dried fruit, and a finish of yeast and alcohol. Medium bodied.

bluejacket74 (1204) - Reynoldsburg, Ohio, USA - DEC 7, 2012
500 ml bottle with 17.07.2012 stamped on it, label says best before 2015. Served in a goblet, the beer pours dark brown with about a half inch tan head that fizzled away quickly. Not much lacing. Aroma is sweet, the brew smells like candy and brown sugar, dark fruit, caramel, and molasses. Taste is similar to the aroma, it tastes like brown sugar, caramel, molasses, dark fruit, and a bit of pear. Mouthfeel/body is medium, it’s a bit creamy and sticky with moderate carbonation. I liked this brew, and I wouldn’t mind trying it again sometime in the future.
